I stayed at 30 Chatsworth for over six weeks - and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is clean, spacious and great value for money. It is right near a tube stop on the Jubilee line so you can get to central London quickly and easily, but still very affordable. Great place to start if you are thinking of moving to London... More

Had a great time. Just remember, it is not a hotel, it is a hostel. You do have to do a bit of chores during your stay to keep your room nice. My friend and I had a private room on the 2nd floor and it was great. The bathroom and heat wave with no AC were the only down... More

This hostel was absolutely revolting. I stayed for a week at 30 Chatsworth road. The room was not cleaned during my entire stay. When I checked out, I had to spend 20 minutes scrubbing my backpack before I could put it on my back as there was that much dust, hair, lint and dirt stuck to it from the floor.... More

Me and my friends took a 3-bed private room and expected a small room without private bathroom and considering that we still knew the price was good. But we had a pretty big room, with private bathroom and toilet, a kitchen (with a refrigerator) and a free Wi-Fi. The house we stayed in also had a joined common room with... More

We stayed in this hostel during the time between when we arrived in London, and when we found some where more permanent to live. The chack in process was slow, although this didn't trouble us too much.
