I stayed here for one night. It took about an hour to get from Heathrow to the hostel. The hostel is located in a pleasant, seemingly safe, quiet area, and is about a five- to ten-minute walk from both the Earl’s Court tube station and the EasyJet bus that goes directly to Gatwick. The surrounding area has a variety of small shops, bars, and restaurants. Female only dorms are becoming more of a rarity these days, so the fact that this hostel offers this option was a plus for me. I was also pleased to see not only college students staying here, but also families and individuals of various ages. The hostel’s café serves a variety of drinks, sandwiches and snacks, and seemed to be open most of the time. My six-bed dorm room was a comfortable size and included a sink. The one drawback I found was that there was not an adequate number of bathrooms and showers for the number of people on my floor. The bathroom I used was not the cleanest I’ve seen, but this could easily have been attributable to the guests and not necessarily the cleaning staff. Overall, I found the hostel to be fine for a short and relatively inexpensive stay in London.
