2 of us stayed here in an 8 person room. The room should have been for no more than 2-3 people MAX. It was very crowded with 6 of us in there I can't even imagine if 8 had been put in there. The staff weren't very helpful or friendly. It is extremely loud at night by the road. There... More

I lked the solid beds very much: the privacy curtains and the eye mask provided. Only disappointment was the size of the shower block and system of this, never experienced something so unpractical even at the gyms. Sink tap with hot water only also not a joy.

Perfect location and standard for a gig at the O2 Shepherds Bush. Clean and very tidy and the power to the room tripped late at night but was cured within minutes. Breakfast was great value too & staff fantastic

The staff was friendly and the rooms were nice. I definitely loved how private the bunks were. We stayed in a 6 bed female ensuite. The only downside was it was HOT. There was a fan in the room, but it didn't provide much circulation. As soon as I got out of the shower, I felt like I needed to... More

In short - I enjoyed my stay, but it's basic and not for everyone! The hostel is part of a bigger hotel it seem. I LOVED the location: quiet street, near Hyde Park, short walk from Queensway.
