                    5.0

                    Is mixed with a Hostel but Hotel paying guests receive the same service as the Hostel paying guest who are paying 25% of the cost of a Hotel guest. Breakfast is a cheap cereal, cheap bread with a toaster that only toasts one side and cheap teabags on baby picnic plates! Hostel guests also received this so the difference between Hostel guests and Hotel guests is a private room with cheap furniture and very poorly decorated and maintained although the hotel is being upgraded which we weren't informed about when we arrived so had no lights for the day...bathroom with no windows so peeing in the dark. I'd be very annoyed if I was staying here for more then one night.

                    Stayed here for two nights. First night in a 6 bed female dorm which I have to say is very very compact! However very clean and for the price you cannot grumble! The second night was in a hotel room with ensuite, now this was lovely! Again very clean and comfortable too! The price of this was great too! Location is excellent and there are good facilities located very near by. An excellent choice, I have a feeling I shall be using this place again!!

                    It's cheap and clean

                    The rooms are really small and it was too noisy...

                    This is better than my expectation for this cheap price.

                    Do not expect anything to the breakfast. Only bread and instant coffee served.

                    Close to tubes, good value for money.

                    location

                    First it was not clear where the reception was. Simple sign "reception" would solve the problem. Room was quite clean but there was no tea spoon and only 2 small tea bags. Breakfast was very poor, just one type of jam and plastic kids plates!!!!

                    5.0

                    I liked the fact that it was in good location, close to tube and buses.

                    I didn't like mainly the fact that the room wasn't properly clean by the stuff and also that it (the room) was very small for 6 beds.

                    7.0

                    location was perfect, and the dorms although cramped, surprisingly private because of individual curtains around the beds.

                    very small rooms

                    3.2

                    An hostel I would certainly not recommend. The only positive element is the position, very close to Queensway tube station. I checked in and they gave me the sheets to make my own bed.The room where they serve breakfast is very hot and uncomfortable.The breakfast is essential. Book there if you don't know where else to go.

                    We stayed on the top floor so it was quiet at night. There was a row of convenience shops and restaurants outside the hostel. Close to Hype Park and train station.

                    Booked a twin room for £80 with continental breakfast before realising it was more of a hostel. Continental breakfast laid out on the table were 2 bags of white bread, a big plastic bowl of corn flakes, one big container of butter, one jam, a large bottle of milk and a toaster. Cereals are served in small picnic style plastic bowls. There was a separate room for breakfast in the basement for non-dormitory guests which served exactly the same thing. Plus a creaky bed and a TV that was not working. For £80, we will look for alternative accommodation within zone 1/2 with better breakfast and still close to underground. We ended up paying for breakfast outside.

                    The WIFI and location is really good

                    The room is so small, and the guests are noisy

                    It was close to Paddington Station to take the Heathrow Express

                    A little off from the city centre (Picadilli, Trafalgar, etc.), though still nicely located next to Hyde Park.
