Location, breakfast, friendly staff
could be more cosy
Nice to have Bar downstairs , full English breakfast served from 8 till 12 there. Very close to train station
Ummm ever heard of duvets? I was given a sheet and very thin blanket to cover me... I was told it wouldn't get cold ...well... I had to cover myself with my coat for extra warmth so I could get to sleep so I don't know about that! Not ideal or very comfortable. Bathrooms could do with a little updating - a rotted bit of skirting with a dead cockroach next to it wasn't very welcoming! Also they had a few bathrooms and showers out of action so there was a long wait for bathrooms in the morning. I think £20 deposit is a bit much as well :/ I'm not staying here again... I'm walking up the road to Equity Point!
I liked the location - just over the road from Paddington station and they have the best selection of breakfast I've seen including fry ups and pancakes!
The staff is rude and don't mind the opinion of guest
I like the cleanest in the room and the bathroom
Staff are friendly.
the lady that check me in was very friendly and helfull. Lovely breakfast
Bedrooms a little too hot and noisy If you want to enjoy the night life in London, you have to move, because it's a quiet place
The Pub downstairs Easy access Friendly staff
Nice setup with bar downstairs.
It was very noisy in the room (two persons, shared bathroom) since the window faced the crossroad and the tube is nearby. Even with earplugs it was very hard to get some sleep.
Excellent Service, free breakfast and fast wifi. Room and bathrooms were very clean for a hostel. Nice location next to Hydepark.
Bathrooms are poor, dirty walls, small rooms, no lock, padlock for lockers.
Location is good, close to Peddington station and Hyde Park.
Not helpful staff.
Full English breakfast every morning! Strong Wi-Fi. Great location - close to Paddington station.
Fresh bed linen was handed over upon arrival. Complementary bfast (selection between pancakes / full English /cereals (5options in all) and just 2mins away from Paddington station. Great value for money
Showers and toilets might use a little bit of renewing.
Staff was really friendly. Having a pub downstairs was really convenient and they also serve breakfast.
noise from the road and underground line runs below hotel, so you can here tube noises all night
location, value for money, pub food, staff
lack of toilet paper (happened twice), common room is basically non-existent, because it's locked from 11pm I think, which is exactly the time when it would be needed - to be able to get away from the room when others might want to sleep and you do not. Shame. I haven't even been there as I always got back from the city around/after 11pm. Breakfast only starts at 8 am, a bit late for busy city like London, I think. 7 am would be better. Especially if you need to catch a bus/train somewhere else in the city. Room was quite small for 6 people and there was only one little stool. Noise from the street and pub up till 2 am.
Good price for london, female only bedroom option, free wifi, breakfast included in the room rate (you can choose between 3 hot meals including full English breakfast - even if rather small portion, or cereals and yoghurt), free toiletries and towel. Free London map and one free hot drink during your stay. There are lockers in the room (but you need to bring your own padlock!!) Many electric sockets. Also, I stayed there in January and it was nicely warm even if outside was below zero.
We booked a room with private bathroom, but the bathroom was outside the room.... It is not possible to make a door in the bedroom wall?
Staff was amazing, really friendly people.
Unfortunately, the pub that is downstairs closes early, at midnight, hehe.
Everything went quite well, the staff is great. The location is amazing, I just walked 20 metres from the tube station. I would recommend it and come again.
•beds - uncomfortable and very noisy when rolling on your side •smell in the rooms
•staff - helpful, smiling and well-organized •included breakfast - choice of several warm dished •wifi connection - quick and safe •location - situated above a lovely traditional English pub, really close to Padfington station
too dark, my eyes hurts!
wifi, cleanness, decoration
I booked a twin room and it wasn't good value for money as it was quite a bit more expensive although the room did have its own TV. The nearest shower was quite grotty but with a short walk down hall there was a good bathroom.
The location is excellent and I have stayed several times before. The rooms were warm which was great. The lockers in the rooms were a useful feature.
Very comfy bed, lovely food in the pub and room nice and quiet despite being conveniently close. Friendly staff and only a short walk to Hyde Park or station.
The room was dusty,my friend was allergic to the dust and could not stop sneezing.
The beds were rather uncomfortable and you only got provided a tiny blanket. Then bathrooms also were not very clean and there was no kitchen available. The small common room was basically unused and not very welcoming.
Location was convenient, located right next to paddington station and walking distance to the palace and oxford street. The cooked breakfasts were also quite good.
