Good 7.8 From 460 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Everything was pretty good, except for the beds. First of all, because of a bad knee, I always need a lower bunk, since those hostel bed ladders are ridiculous and truly meant for 5 year olds. Anyway, at this hostel, they stack the bunk beds 3 levels, which meant that the bottom bunk was literally on the floor. What made matters worse, is that the next bed up was so low to mine that I had to get ON MY KNEES to crawl into my bunk. TERRIBLE FOR THE KNEES. Ok, that’s not the hostel’s fault, my bad knee, but this lowest bunk is ridiculously stupid for anyone. Why should anyone have to get on their knees, ON A HARD WOOD FLOOR, to crawl into bed. AND DON’T GET ME STARTED ON CLIMBING OUT OF BED. Or should I say tumbling, since there’s no comfortable, easy way to exit either... And the mattresses were terribly thin and resting on hard boards, so anyone over 100 pounds, is literally sleeping on a hard piece of wood. Terribly uncomfortable. I won’t ever return because of the bed situation...but if you can get past that, you’ll probably be ok.

It was a vacation and I loved the facility. I felt very secured and everything was clean and the staff was helpful. The only thing would be better signage on finding the hostel, better food, and maybe free pizza days.

Lovely Place!
I was pleasantly surprised the hostel was comfortable, clean, and quiet. I was nervous I wouldn't get any sleep in a 21-bed room. I actually slept well in the relative privacy of my middle bunk. The shared bathroom was tidy and not crowded. The interior was well-kept and warm. Clearly the building is aged, but the brightly painted interiors and kitsch artwork give the place a contemporary feel. The hostel is an a forest and park. Two underground service the area, the nearest is Holland Park. Great restaurants and shopping are nearby as well. Very nice!

Pretty Disappointed
The hostel is nice. Very nice yard. My experience in the room wasn’t very good. 9 people in a very small room. NO ventilation. It was very hot and stuffy. Roommates weren’t always considerate (not hostels fault). One roommate was on the phone at 7am and spoke very loudly. Others kept shuffling through things past 10pm. Continental breakfast is very plain but decent cappuccinos. Non alcoholic beverages are available at the bar. Front desk were not very fluent in English and we got lost in translation a lot. Very frustrating. I would not stay here again but loved the opera from the opera house next door and being in the park.
