I have stayed it hostels around the world especially in South East Asia but this hostel was just too terrible for me to stay in. I made a booking here after seeing the photos and the cheap price it offered. Checking in was smooth and the staff manning the reception was very friendly. I paid for 2 nights. However, the...

Nice hostel near Hyde park, the tube station (Bayswater) and a lot of shops and markets (in Queensway). A bit overcrowded is some periods of the year and the space for luggage is not a lot. But if you don't have expectations is a good place. Useful little curtains give you privacy in your bed.

The things that bothered me the most was that there was dirt on the floor on the sheets. Breakfast was poor and tasteless but I am Italian and this is normal told by an Italian and the staff was not as friendly as I thought it was. Sorry for my English

I stay in hostels all around the world and this must be one of the worst. What this hostel has done is try fit as many people as possible into the property and not worry about anything else. They compete on cost alone and it shows. Where to begin... - the staff are rude and every time you pass through...

The beds are small. They aren't made for long people. The bathrooms and toilets are clean. The stairs are steep and small. We had booked one dorm for 11 persons and the assistant manager agreed on that. After all he told us that he only has room for 10. After an long discussion we could get an agreement on an...
