Very Good 8.0
It was my 1st time ever staying in a hostel. Very convenient for traveling in and out of Paddington. Noisy day and night (there are road works currently right outside the window), but I see it as adding to the ambiance. Close enough to walk to Hydepark. Overall a pleasant stay.

It is always good to stay in this hotel. It is near the station. Strongly advise any one to stay there.

Great Location and Breakfast, Rest Okay
The room and bathroom was okay, nothing too impressive or amazing, but okay overall. The location was; however, fantastic for walking, train, or bus. I'd recommend it largely based on this. The only negative with location was that the road noise/pub below was a little loud when trying to sleep, but was not prohibitive. I'd have the say the best part was the breakfast included, which they were able to make a vegetarian option. Overall I'd recommend it if you're not too fussed about amazing beds or showers (I do want to note it was clean), but are in London to see the sights, and get a delicious English Breakfast to start off your day!

Good location, bad nights rest.
Location was perfect. Room was small and noisy. The beds were too low for bunks and really thin. There was a huge locker taking up one wall but suitcases could not fit in it and locks couldn't go through the holes so it was basically useless. Street was really noisy. Worst was the walls were so I thin the entire room buzzed when the hand dryer was used.

Definately The Pride of Paddington.
Wonderful, friendly & helpful staff from the check-in to overall service. The accomodation was comfortable with clean showers, bed linen, towels and rooms. I will definately do a return stay.

up for a reunion
when booking in i was told all the sad things that could happen to me that night, by a lady i am sure was a warden at Mandelas prison on the island off Cape Town. To be fair they could have happened, but i was lucky i had 5 very considerate room mates. Next morning after a half decent nights sleep a really big full english that was a lot better than i expected. ( the warden was working yet again) she never stops. Warden then helped the girl doing my check out. All staff I met so helpful. Wash room and toilets spot on.
