We were very disappointed with this hostel. Its great location (in front of Hyde Park) is the only remarkable positive point. Rooms were extremely tiny and untidy and there was no hot water in the bathroom.

As the hostel is right next to Hyde Park the location can not be criticized. The dorm rooms however were third world conditions. They managed to squeeze 6 beds into an approx. 12 m2 room (triple bunk beds) and left almost no room for you to walk - suitcases could only be opened in bathroom. The beds were way to...

Good points: Great location - 20 min walking to Oxford street. There are plenty of places to eat and supermarkets nearby (Quennsway street). Breakfast is free - it's basic (toasts, butter, jam, nutella, cereals, coffee & tea) but you can eat as much as you want to. I booked a bed in a dorm and I really liked that each...

Cheap prices double ensuite room. However ...Tiny Tiny room and nasty bathroom with no view at all. Had room 605.Room was So small. Bathroom was even smaller,darker and dirtier. The fan stayed on all night... Thank God for earplugs! Breakfast was simple plain but perfectly adequate. Staff were always happy to help and personable. Ok for just the 1 night.

Wonderful place to bring students because the bottom floors are dorm rooms for kids and the top Floor has private rooms for teachers...all at a reasonable fee. The staff is excellent every year even though there is high turnover among them. I have come here for 8 years and never been disappointed. Close to Hyde Park and a 15 minute...

Since our flight got delayed, I called the hotel staff to let them know I was going to be one day late and asked them to keep the reservation as it is. They agreed but said they would still charge me for the first no show night. They told me to talk to Expedia regarding refund for the first night...

Stayed here with a group of friends as hotels in London are so expensive around Christmas time. We wanted somewhere safe and secure to leave our bags and also somewhere clean for the night to sleep. We booked and paid for a private 9 person dorm....which we got. Its small but we were only sleeping here so didn't need a...

- Free fi-fi either does not work or works very slovely. You can loudly hear noise from outside. Cant use lobby in the morning since it is reserved for some premium breakfast. Scraping beds + Toilets are quite big and clean Good deal for money Pluge-in inside bed
