Wonderful place to bring students because the bottom floors are dorm rooms for kids and the top Floor has private rooms for teachers...all at a reasonable fee. The staff is excellent every year even though there is high turnover among them. I have come here for 8 years and never been disappointed. Close to Hyde Park and a 15 minute...

Since our flight got delayed, I called the hotel staff to let them know I was going to be one day late and asked them to keep the reservation as it is. They agreed but said they would still charge me for the first no show night. They told me to talk to Expedia regarding refund for the first night...

Stayed here with a group of friends as hotels in London are so expensive around Christmas time. We wanted somewhere safe and secure to leave our bags and also somewhere clean for the night to sleep. We booked and paid for a private 9 person dorm....which we got. Its small but we were only sleeping here so didn't need a...

- Free fi-fi either does not work or works very slovely. You can loudly hear noise from outside. Cant use lobby in the morning since it is reserved for some premium breakfast. Scraping beds + Toilets are quite big and clean Good deal for money Pluge-in inside bed

Hi there! I visited London for a fun weekend and needed a cheap but clean hostel to sleep at night. My first hostel experience indeed. Pros: clean bedroom pack, clean common bathroom, easy access to the room, very good location of the hostel, friendly staff. Cons: two sockets for six people (so neighbours took away my phone at night), box...

The hostel looks very nice and welcoming on the outside. Good neighbourhood, pretty close to the center, 5-7minutes walk from Queensway. Wi-fi not functional in the rooms, sometimes not working in the lobby, either. Staff is friendly and nice. The 6-bed rooms are really crammed, I had the 3rd highest bed and wasn't a very pleasant experience for me, personally....
