Fair 4.0
First time at a hostel, and never again.
We stayed in a 4 bedroom ensuite, and the bathroom was MUCH smaller than expected. About the size of a port-a-potty was what contained the shower, toilet, and sink. Virtually unusable to get changed inside there or properly take a shower. The rooms were clean but there were bugs in the bathroom, and it was VERY hot for staying in April. Having to put your own sheets on the bed wasn't fun either.

Great price and Great service
It was nice here. Close to Kensington palace, a lot of food options and shops and the underground.
Trisha, us6 night trip
Fair 4.0
Fairly good location, but that's pretty much it. Rooms were tiny and poorly ventilated with rickety metal beds that made any movement from others make it shake. Pillows were flat and uncomfortable, and the bedding they give you doesn't even include a fitted sheet. On top of that, it looks like the cleaning they do pretty much only involves vacuuming and folding the comforter. No cleaning seems to be done on any surface at all. On top of all that, the staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful.

Centrally located, budget friendly, and clean all that you need for a vacation. The ensuite is a little bit more but worth it. Modern and functional bathroom facilities in the ensuite rooms. Clean linen with daily housekeeping, worth it!

Poor 2.0
Worst than prison. Hot, cramped, not nearly enough room for the amount of people they cram in. I had to have the front desk turn on AC with a shared room of 16 people. Why they would need to be reminded is beyond me.
X, us5 night trip
Fair 4.0
Good location and price. Too many beds, like a submarine barracks with little ventilation. The outside tables in front are a nice feature yet they close it at 10 pm and everyone has to stand or sit on the ground. Lots of local drug dealers around mingleing and bumming cigs.

Gio's Take
The staff helped me gave a great Lo don experience. The area has everything: ellegance, quiet, restaurant and stores a block away, 2 underground stations and buses within walking ditance, and it is 15 min from Paddington station (on foot). The room is simple and fir short stsy or quick layover, it is GREAT for the money.
Giovanna, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
I've stayed in multiple hostels and this by far was the worst. The rooms were abnormally small so it made the room incredibly stuffy by putting nine beds in there. I never once had hot water and in the bathroom in my room you couldn't turn in a full circle without hitting something. The staff was very nice, but the facility itself was miserable. I considered staying on my friend's floor in a different hostel.

Positives first! It is located only five minutes from Queensway underground station, so easy for travel purposes. The breakfast is also good enough - toast, cereal, and a selection of hot and cold drinks. I never really go for fancy breakfasts anyway. The bunk, with the curtains pulled over, offered me a good degree of privacy and the 11:30 lights out rule is ideal for a dormitory. The staff were also helpful when I lost my keycard, and they were happy to answer any questions. Downsides! Don't pick here if you have any sort of mobility issue. There are multiple floors, no automatically opening doors and it has a lot of turning stairs. Pretty, but not good for those who are less-than-able-bodied. If you are particularly affected by the smell of weed, avoid. There seems to be near-constant smoking outside and it does often waft indoors.
