This was my first time staying at a hostel, it will be my last. Being my first time, I went in not knowing what to expect and being open minded. I booked a hostel simply for the affordable price for a one night stay. If you take anything out of this review take this, it was worth the once in...

Hello, Thank you for taking time and writing a review for us, we apologies that you did not enjoy your stay. As we're a budget hostel, we offer our beds for a cheap price and cannot afford to give customers free towels. with regards to soap we do give soap, however the house keeper must of forgot to put some...

Perfect location! One block from the Bayswater tube station and close enough to shopping but far enough away so it wasn't too loud. They were very accommodating. Our friend group was separated by accident and they gave us a 6 bedroom to ourselves to keep us together. Great for what we paid for. Would definitely return.

If your 6'4 like myself then you won't fit in the beds. Place was an alright location and pretty clean. Be prepared to pay 2 £ to store your bag at the hostel if you've already checked out. I shouldn't have to pay to have them throw my bag in a room for a few hours.

Spend the extra money, stay somewhere else! The 15-person room was loud, crowded, filthy, and felt unsafe. The room had triple-decker bunkbeads, which were not suitable for a good night's sleep. Breakfast is just toast and tea--but had been torn through by the time I arrived to eat. Good location, awful everything else.

There are bed bugs everywhere and they will do nothing for you. They will not give you a refund, they are unfriendly. Avoid this hostel at all costs. The breakfast is also extremely disappointing, you have to pay for lockers, there are shifty characters here. No wifi. Extremely uncomfortable experience. I can't believe I have to spend two more nights...

This is the far best hostel with budget not far from the heart of London. This hostel really need MORE power outlets for people to use laptop or phone charging. The dorm bedroom is tight but very comfortable, have curtain for your privacy. They need MORE bathroom since they were very few of them for MANY beds on the first...

The zone where this hostel is located couldn't be better, it's one street away from Bayswater tube station, so, that's important. The pros: location, friendly staff, cleaniness, internet facilities and the price. The bad stuff: beds are so hard for the back, people are so loud and doors don't help, people just have to slam them to close. Besides, a...

You may be tempted to stay at this hostel when looking at the pictures. Yes the pictures does not lie, they have decent bed with clean linen and pillow cases. But not the blanket. I highly doubted they wash them regularly as my friend got a blanket that smelled weird and funky. Honestly if you kinda a "hygienic freak", you...
