My mother and I stayed here in February for a week and have to say, overall we thought it was great. Location is excellent, just a few steps from the Hammersmith Station junction with restaurants and cafes etc, but down a quiet side street that made sleeping a breeze at night. Staff were relatively friendly, helpful and smiley and there is always someone on reception 24 hours a day.
Our room was quite a large twin room (apparently one of the best in the place according to reception), relatively spacious by London standards, had a wardrobe, fridge and also were provided 2 bowls, 2 mugs and cutlery. We were able to eat breakfast in our room every morning which was very pleasant. Rooms are VERY stark and boring, but we only really were there to sleep so it didn't matter for the price we were paying.
Only a few minor complaints:
- Kitchen was being renovated the entire time we were there so there was no hot water, or place to cook. We did tend to eat out a lot so the only thing we really missed was access to a kettle as we couldn't even make a cup of tea. Bit of a disaster in the tea-drinking capital of the world.
- The sanitiser they use for the floors is overwhelmingly powerful. BE PREPARED. The whole place reeks of it. But really, there could be much worse things for a hostel to reek of. At least you know its clean.
-The shower was probably the biggest disappointment of the stay - water was hot/warm but was always a very weak dribble...quite hard to wash your hair if it is as long as mine.
Overall simple and clean and great value for money. Planning another trip that means we are stopping through London again next month, my husband and I will stay here again. :)
