Almost Perfect ......Almost
So everyone was very kind. I much appreciated the customer service. Charmagne or Charlene not sure name she is a team leader there. She was amazing. Great with boundaries. Very hard worker. When she was short on staff she did 3 different jobs maybe more. Complaints kinda. 1. Water didn't work for three days. Not the hostels fault was government line. Apologies offered but no refund or discount. 2 unfortunately some other clients were obnoxiously drunk. I remember a man named Thom trying to put my clothes on while he was drunk. I need to mention I was still wearing my clothes. Staff was quick to dismiss pot users...understandably it's illegal there. But dot nothing for loud Thom. 3 two female staff had a 10 min yelling match my third day there. They stood in the main meal area screaming at each other. All in all I enjoyed my stay. Price was very cheap so I am great full fir the staff that went above an beyond.

Good value for money
Not bad I stayed at dormitory shared room and the bed was tiny.. It was little uncomfortable but everything was nice except for the bed. Good lounge, luggage storage service and great customer service.
HYOEUN, ca4 night trip
Good 6.0
My stay itself was fine. The hostel is not a far walk from a central tube station and a couple of bus lines. But once you get out at the stop, you have a dark walk (if at night), on a walkway through Holland Park. Meh. Besides that, there is no actual bar at the place. They don't serve alcohol. As a solo traveller, I appreciate being able to have a drink at the hostel I stay at. Especially on a city I don't know. If the people were sociable and I met people, it may be a different story. But it was just an ok experience all around. But the thing that really bugged me was the staff. When I went to get my 'towel for hire' as is stated o the site, they told me it was £4. Fine. Whe I we t to my room, there was a sign saying towels for hire were £2.50. So I went back and made sure I wasn't buying the towel, as I had limited space. They told me no, that was the new price and they must have forgotten to take down the poster.....ok. I hot to check out, and they tell me that the towel is mine, I bought it. And then got a smart a** comment that I could leave it, bit still not get my £ back....ya ok. Whatever. The hostel was not the best, but the staff was maybe the worst part...

Good for one night, no kids for sure.
People do not respect the room roles, thy are eating and drinking, it is difficult to sleep. Also the wals are very thin, you can hear what is going on in the bathroom like you would be inside.
