Price was fairly good, for London you're getting a good deal here. I stayed in one of the mixed 6 bed rooms they offer, it comes with an ensuite Bathroom. The beds are comfortable and sturdy with firm mattresses and the rooms come with your own locker and safe (don't forget to bring your own padlock!). the rooms are basic room but it's all you need! Linen is provided. Each Bed has it's own reading light.
Free breakfast is a great addition as well as free tea and coffee throughout the day. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is conveniently located about 5mins from Earls Court station which means you're only about 15/20mins from the centre. Wi-Fi is decent and the people staying often seem very nice. This is not a party hostel, definitely more laid back with their own lounge and garden area to chill in too. This would be my first choice when returning to London.
To finish this is a well designed and comfortable hostel run by an experienced traveller.
