One word, brilliant!
Above all, all the staffs were friendly and helpful! Had some chances to get to know other visitors from overseas, which was unforgettable. The atmosphere around hostel is so comfortable and peaceful. Lastly, easily access to public transportations! Such as bus and underground(Earl's Court Station). It was enjoyable staying there. Cheers!

margaret, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Overall a very pleasant and affordable stay.
Stayed two nights in a group room with one single and one bunk bed. Bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. 24 hour cafe was particularly nice to get tea at night and coffee in the morning. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very short walk to Earl's Court station. Room was very clean. Hooks on the walls would have been a nice addition so that towels could dry or we could hang up clothes. Towels are not included and cost £2 to rent, so bring your own if you can. We always travel with a few of those chamois towels that roll up very tiny but can absorb a lot of water. Showers were hot and larger than expected. Overall a very pleasant and affordable stay.
