I've been placed at the 5th floor and the hostel lift was broken so I had to carry my luggage by myself 5 floors. No one offered me help. In the day I left the hostel the lift still broken. It's important in a place with an only common room to have internet in bedrooms. Even if you had to follow some rules, to keep a calm and quiet place, it's better than to walk down 1, 2 or 5 floors (in this case without lift) just to catch some wifi sinal.

Sehr zentral zu verschiedenen Tube-Stationen, nahe ruhigen Regent's Park. Sehr gut, Angebot mit Dusche/WC auf dem Zimmer; klein, sehr einfach ausgestattet, aber funktionell + sauber. Kochgelegenheiten, Kühlschränke + Verstaufächer für Lebensmittel. Frühstück völlig zufriedenstellend, nur (Vollkorn-)Brötchen sucht man vergebens. Baggage-Raum super. Das junge, dynamische Team ist 24/7 ansprechbar und sehr nett. Kostenlose London-Maps und weitere Angebote sind vorhanden + gut präsentiert.

Travel tips...

Attraction tip

Camdentown, Eastend, Tube-Stations allgemein, Harrods, einfach in die Busse/Tubes einsteigen und irgendwo wieder aussteigen, es gibt immer was zu erkunden; zu Hauptverkehrszeiten die Linienbusse meiden, man ist zu Fuß schneller
