The hotel need major improment

The first day when we checked in, the bed assigned to us was mismatched with someone else. After we set at my bed, there were still people later coming in and asking my bed. The room inside and outside was extremely loud, we could not get to sleep. We had to move out after staying one night out of 6 paid reserved days. We would like asking for our money back for the 5 unused days. Thanks, sean

Don't. Just don't.

The adage is true: you get what you pay for, and in this instance you get very little. But even 'cheap' in London should imply a proper blanket and a clean bathroom. Where do I begin: Upon entry, we were greeted with foul music (call me old fashioned, but I don't like the F-bomb being tossed around every other word; the same few songs were also played during checkout) and staff who seemed annoyed that we were interrupting whatever it was they were doing. We arrived ten minutes before the official check in, but the girl at the desk refused to even start taking our names or any other paperwork until at least half an hour later. When being assigned our rooms, I was told that my reservation providing free wi-fi was incorrect (something I specifically chose this hotel for for work reasons), no consideration to honoring the agreement was made. The room itself seems to have not been updated since the early 1990s. The blankets and pillows were full of holes, lumps, and were too small for the bed; the windows and walls are very thin, and the bathrooms hadn't been attended to in who knows how long - no soap, no paper in half the stalls, dirty facilities. This hostel almost single-handedly deterred me from ever staying in a hostel again. Redeeming features: it's very close to a Tube Stop, which makes getting out of there much easier.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Pay attention to the Tube Stops. The Kensal Green is just on the edge of Zone 2, which can save you quid if you want to stay in the pass-zones. Not all of the trains on that line, though, stop at Kensal - many will stop the station before - make sure to grab one that heads all the way out there.

awful is too gentle a word

Total disaster. Rooms too small filthy and shabby. Staff rude and unhelpful. Single bathroom for whole floor. Bedsheets not changed . Plus location is far from central London.

Durschnittlich schwaches Hostel

Das Hostel wirkt ziemlich chaotisch und unorganisiert. Obwohl ich 3 Nächte gebucht hatte musste ich das Zimmer nach jeder Nacht um 8-9 Uhr morgens wechseln (wurde unsanft, von einem Security-Mann geweckt und musste immer erklären dass ich 3 Nächte gebucht hatte) und ich durfte mich bis zum nächsten Check-In (14 Uhr!!!) nicht in einem Zimmer aufhalten. Ich wurde von Zimmer 407 nach Zimmer 408 zurück zu Zimmer 407 "verlegt"... Wollte ich die Stadt besichtigen musste ich mein Gepäck gut sichtbar an der Rezeption hinterlegen. Jeder andere Gast hätte die Möglichkeit gehabt dieses mitzunehmen. Des Weiteren wirbt das Hostel mit kostenlosem WLAN, jedoch war dieses entweder kaputt oder man musste das WLAN im Hosteleigenen Cafe kaufen. Außerdem habe ich zufällig mitbekommen wie die Zimmer geputzt werden. Bettdecken und Bettbezüge werden nicht ausgetauscht, sondern nur "zurecht gelegt", so dass es schön aussieht. Im Nachhinnein keine schöne Vorstellung, wer weiß wann das letzte mal das Bettzeug gewechselt wurde. Als Fazit: Billig, aber nicht zu empfehlen.

Neljän naisen yhteishuone

Yhteishuone oli siisti olosuhteisiin nähden, kylypyhuone, jossa WC ja suihkukaappi. oma nestesaippua, kylpypyyhe ja WC-paperi tarvittiin. yhteistilat olivat käytännölliset ja toimivat, mutta viihtyisiksi niitä ei voi sanoa, mutta hyvä paikka yöpymiseen ja lepäämiseen. hyvä hinta/laatusuhdde ja sijainti. vain 10 min suora underground -linja Paddingtonille, jossa paljon hyviä ruokapaikkoja ja iltaelämää. Paddingtonilta lyhyt kävelymatka Kensingtonin puistoon Craven Road -katua pitkin. aamiainen oli hyvä ja edullinen, vain 1.5 puntaa/henk. hostellissa oli rauhallista, valvontakamera kuvasi kaikkia yleisiä tiloja (kuten käytävätilat), tätä materiaalia seurattiin jatkuvasti.

Anfang: Total Schock, Ende: Ganz glücklich

Also, das war ja mal ein Abenteuer!! Wir sind am oben genannten Hostel gegen Mitternacht angekommen (6 Mädels, alle 17) und draußen standen schon Raucher, Kiffer etc. O.o Drinnen total der Lärm, mega Musik und die meisten wohl betrunken, alles extrem heruntergekommen... Auf jeden Fall wolten wir dann einchecken und die Frau am "Tresen" hatte das auch so eingetragen, aber ein freies Zimmer hatten die nicht mehr für uns!! Warum bucht man dann sowas?!?! Auf jeden Fall wurden wir dann in ein halb fertiges Hostel (gerade mitten in der Renovierung) der selben Company umquartiert und letztendlich war das wohl unsere Rettung. :) Obwohl von außen echt beängstigend aussah, war esda wesentlich angehmer, als im Hostel 639. Wir waren dann im Hostel/Hotel Willesden oder so (es hat nicht mal einen Eintrag bei Google Maps) und waren auch die einzigen Gäste, hatten gleich beim Zimmereinchecken den Heizungskopf in der Hand und mussten dann in Hitze und Farbgeruch schlafen... Aber sonst war alles gut: das Personal (1 Mann + 1 Frau) sehr freundlich, da sie alle Zeit der Welt für uns hatten und haben uns alle Fragen sehr ausführlich und hilfsbereit beantwortet. 24h war immer jemand an der Info, Overground-Station "Willesden Junction" gleich um die Ecke, sauberes Zimmer. Wir hatten echt Glück im Unglück, dass wir nicht im Hostel 639 schlafen konnten :) Das hat unseren Aufenthalt in London echt gerettet und wir hatten viel Spaß :D
