I've just returned here from one night in London, we needed somewhere cheap as my friend was travelling from Argentina on budget and yes this was cheap, we thought with breakfast included as well, you couldn't go wrong!

My last hostel experience was 9 years ago so knew what to expect. This isn't like othet hostels I've stayed in. £10 bedding deposit had to be paid in cash on arrival. Making your bed in a room with 3 fellow unknowns isn't easy or pleasant, you have no option but to switch the light on. The bed was comfortable,... More

Fantastic location in a nice neighbourhood, on the border of Hyde Park and a 5 min walk from Notting Hill. Half an hour walk to all the main attractions, would recommend using Google maps tho.

It is really OK if you can't go somewhere else... You take what you pay for. The staff is alright. When I arrived I thought they were quite rude, but they are really alright, quite cool and helpful. The place is quite dirty, but not unbearable. Breakfast is horrible, but eatable. The only huge problem is regarding the bathrooms: water... More

There are two things that attracted my attention and made me choose this solution for my stay in London: the location, which is really nice and really close to the city centre, and the price, very very cheap.

I can only imagine that the rooms upstairs were as good as they said, unfortunately I stayed in the room in the basement... they could improve the bathrooms and add more room for the bags in the rooms. Great location and really nice staff

Location, location, location. However... The kitchen is lacking in utensils. Please get some more. The rooms are too hot (not well-ventilated) and too crowded for the amount of beds that are in it.
