According to the design of the web site, I have expected something more professional, with
reception and so on. It is very easy to miss the hostel, so check the street view before your arrival. Our room was equipped with a bed (clean), a carpet (very dirty), a lamp (without a bulb), a TV (dunno if working) and hooks and hangers (no wardrobe). Honestly, when we (me and my wife) saw the room, we were a little bit desperate, because a few days ago we spent our holiday in a 4 star hotel in Budapest. I know it is not comparable! So I said to myself something like “Come on, it is just a hostel and we are not going to spend our time here, only the nights”. And so it was. The bathrooms were clean. The kitchen wasn’t. Everything in the kitchen was tired and dinky and saturated with the smell of curry (actually, the entire hostel was saturated with that smell!). The only thing we used was a corkscrew. The owner was polite and fine, he even provided us with electricity adapter. Some trouble times experienced my wife with the wife of the owner as she (the wife of the owner) was surprised that my wife is going to use the bathroom on the third floor (the most cleanly at the moment). But the owner told us we can use any of them so I do not know what her problem was! And one night she (the wife of the owner) watched my wife in the corridor and asked her some questions and my wife felt very surprised and a little bit depressed. But I think it was all just her way of behaviour and kind of manner. Location of the hostel is great (Shepherd`s Bush) and prices are reasonable.
