The only consolation I could find in staying here is that I got it for free as a package deal when I booked a flight with my travel agent. If I wasn't getting it for free, I would not have stayed here beyond my first night. I arrived to a filthy room, complete with used towels and sheets, and used...

The first view upon the so called 'Hostel' caused some laughter ... not of joy, but of shock. The building itself looks like an old office building and as soon as you enter the building, the impression changes into a prison. We'd announced our check-in time for 1 pm. We arrived an hour to early, so as we entered our...

Carpet on the floor (vacuum cleaner??!?) Anyway, it was fealty. BUT: new linen upon arrival! Because I've travelled the days before I slept immediately (with...

This was the worst hostel I have stayed in, ever. And I have traveled all over Europe. Dirty, unsafe, and in a bad location. Try somewhere else. The low price does NOT make up for how bad this place is. You can do better. If not, you should rethink travel in Europe. I would highly recommend the Holland Park hostel,...

very basic service! i stayed in a 8 female dorm, room was clean but really small..and you have to cope with a shower box close to your bed!! the best thing is that's cheap and it's in zone 2, you reach victoria in about 20 minutes by tube, but i wouldn't stay there for more than 2-3 days..if your roommate...

We went to this hostel twice, the fisrt time (May 07) have booked through Hostelworld for two nights. We were located in the end of the 5th floor, lift does not work, and I had my mum with me, who is 65years old and has heart problems - it was a struggle for me (who exercise regularly), and very difficult...
