A traditional English pub beautifully refurbed for 2011. Now offering double, twin, and shared 4, 6 and 8 bed dorms and some female only rooms for the girls to have exclusively. Close to all tourist attractions and not forgetting Hyde Park, Oxford St, Soho, Covent Garden, Notting Hill and Portobello markets. Paddington station (Heathrow Express) is two minutes away and there are four Underground rail stations all within a few minutes walk. Getting around London couldn't be easier. Add to that a major hub for London buses and this is the place to base all your London sightseeing in. We pride ourselves on the safe, clean and fun environment we provide for all our guests at great value for money. Our Traditional pub (downstairs from the hostel) serves excellent freshly cooked food which you can get at a discounted rate, as our guest, using the free book of vouchers issued to you on arrival. The free breakfast is great, no boring continental breakfast - a full cooked English breakfast served down in the bar every day from 8:00-10:00am and you can get a free juice or tea/coffee with that as well.

I have going to this pub since 2001 for the Sunday roast and yorkies and today .this was the worst meal we had in our t.hree weeks in EUR. The meat was stringy, the gravy watery, not sure how old the potatoes were but they were not fresh. But the most disappointing was the Yorkshire pudding. I expect light and full of taste. When they arrived they were more like a crackerthan a yorkie. We told the girl who delivered the food, she smiled and thanked us and then prepared to leave. We called her back and told her they were not good enough to serve and she reluctantly agreed to replace them, but then brought two more in the same condition. I am not a great cook, but if I prepared a meal of such low quality I would throw it out before I would serve it to my guests. I would charitably

We stopped in for a drink and enjoyed a very good martini with a side of chips which were good and crispy. We went in for a gin and tonic and we were advised that they did not have premium tonic and we found out that they did after our martinis were actually delivered.

From America, came to London expecting amazing fish and chips... needless to say this was the WORST EXPERIENCE. The tarter sauce came in little bitty packets. The fish was over battered. Overall.. horrible food!!!

Found this hostel while searching for rooms in London for a 1 night stay to see Bon Jovi. I emailed to make a couple of requests and they staff were super helpful and quick to reply. We booked a 6 bed dorm for 6 of us. The location literally could not be better, just across the road from Paddington Station. Room clean and comfortable, plenty of toilets available. Excellent breakfast included in the price too. All staff we met at check in, check out and breakfast were lovely and even looked after one of our friends who managed to get separated from the group after our night out. Thanks for a great stay, we will be back!

I was part of a group of 8 that stayed here for a few days. The accommodations were to be expected for a hostel - we were all placed in the same room with bunk beds. There were plenty of toilets and showers available for use. The staff was all incredibly friendly and helpful, especially Ilaria in particular, who went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of throughout our stay. The pub was fantastic with reasonable prices, fantastic food, and a good draft beer selection. I would definitely stay here again.
