We have stayed here before with children ...everything about safe stay is excellent ...clean & well kept accomadition... No wonder it gets booked quite quickly love it ...great location & value fr money breakfast

My overall experience was not so bad. My only problem is the mixed genders! I knew no one would harm me, but it was still very uncomfortable because I had to sleep in my clothes instead of my nightwear!

Excellent hostel, good location and very clean. I particularly liked the power points near the bed, the curtains around the bed for extra privacy and the fact there were enough bathrooms. Friendly and helpful staff.

I thought the place was nice but there was a weird vibe of people. It smelled very bad in the bedroom. They need to ventilate the room or at least open the windows everyday. The curtains around the beds were nice though.

just brilliant ! forget all the other 'fleapit' decor places you can stay at in London, and especially many of the unhelpful hostels around Bayswater. This offers a real customer experience, understanding that people on tight budgets still deserve and need professional standards in terms of comfort, cleanliness and great design. I have never seen such a clean and great hostel in London before. The cleanest bathrooms ! hooray ! and great value breakfast. I also found it quiet and the bed curtains the single most genius idea to offer customers. Its really the best, and I hope will now lead a revolution, so that some other London hostels will stop giving customers really bad quality design and comfort. This is also very woman friendly place as right close to bus stops making a safe night arrival possible. I think the breakfast needs a toasting machine, but is other than that also amazing value and again, SOMEONE who designed this hostel must have travelled around a lot in the past and used hostels, because they have thought about everything and how to give the budget customers a good experience ! so thankyou.

I love how they have curtains surrounding the bed so it gives even more privacy. En suite design is very nice too and the toilets/shower is very clean. The room itself is spacious and clean, and although the view is not the best, with the price tag and quality I guess I don't have much to complain about.

was kind professional and skills WAs well place . More staffs to meet up with client and victors need to avoid over crowding ! How ever it was quite efficiency . Location was very good , and its accebilities

I've stayed in a room for 4 was perfect. Good location, close to the metro. I've missed a small shelving and maybe a plug near the top junk bed. The staff was nice and the hostel and the rooms were very clean.

To date, this hostel has been the best that I have stayed at. Extremely clean and the great location made it very easy to get around London. The staff was great! They were all so kind and helpful with everything.

Loved the cleanliness and top notch facilities available here. The staff were genuinely nice and helpful . they offer umbrellas and extra toiletries for purchase. All the rooms were very clean and the sheets as well. There were power outlets right next to the beds. The curtain covers your bed and gies you privacy. The location was excellent and busses stop right infront of the hostel. One can goanywhere in London from here.
