Très bonne auberge de jeunesse. Bien située, de bons bars à deux pas de l'auberge. La station Earl's Court est à 5 minutes à pied et les lieux culturels sont à 10 minutes de métro environ. Je recommande cette auberge vivement!

Una buena experiencia, baños limpios y en general. Las taquillas son pequeñas y hay que comprar un candado. Podrian poner taquillas que funcionen con tarjetas, que son mas seguras y con un poco mas de espacio. Eso seria genial para meter maletas o mochilas de mano en la taquillas ya que en la actual no entran. En la recepcion dan un buen servicio informativo y en la habitacion comparti con tres personas mas.

Good Location, nice staff, enough shared bathroom & toilet. Floor looks so scratch, it makes us feel unclean.
