Stayed from Sept 17-22, 2013 at £86.05 per night
PROS - Near shops, buses and the West Kensington tube station / designated smoking area (outside).
CONS - This is a very cheap 'hostel' not an hotel as per website description.
Entire building only had one tiny lift / No kettle/tea or coffee supplies in room
No standard (two small bottled water) / No in-room safe / No phone or intercom in room.
No air conditioner or fan – very uncomfortable room to sleep in / Dripping shower head /
WIFI – Although free, Service is ridiculously slow and kept on disconnecting even when in use. I had to keep on logging back in every one hour! Shower room SINK is unbelievably tiny and located in a very tight spot – (wall, sink and shower enclosure all squashed together) / No room to move my right hand when brushing my teeth or wash my face! / Picture of ‘hostel’ looked nothing like the picture advertised (disappointed) - located in very close proximity of residential houses, literarily next door to one another! / Extremely narrow corridors with smelly carpets (same in room) / Double bed squeezed in room leaving no room to put my luggage. Had to sleep with my luggage and shopping next to me on the bed. Preferred to keep my stuff on the bed anyway because the carpet smelt was too unhygienic to leave any of my stuff on / tried the complimentary hot drinks located in the reception area and it was not to my taste. Would not stay here again nor recommend this place to anyone. This ‘hostel’ deserves NIL star as I really can’t comprehend why the rated 2 stars! for what?
