Great staff, room not so much.

I booked this hotel needing somewhere cheap and clean to sleep before flying back to Australia. The cheap bit was a success, clean? unfortunately not. The staff were lovely but I was a bit alarmed when the owner made me stand outside the room before entering so she could check the cleanliness. She was quite pleased that it was 'clean' but unfortunately it did need to be revacuumes and dirty cups in the sink don't mean clean to me. Cheap and easy place to stay but don't come looking for a place you'd want to walk around in bare feet. Lovely staff though.

Thank you for choosing stay with us. The reason I had to check the room was I let you in before check in started .. As I advertise check in is 3pm and check out is !! am. It would been much better for all of us to gave me feed back while you were staying with us . Me and my staff would go out of our way to help you .. Our cleaning staff is working on a 24 hours shift . Kind regards Litsa

Basic hostel in central london

The rooms and facilities are basic but the staff were friendly and it is extreamly close to Paddington station and the center of London. For someone on a budget trip that needs somewhere just to sleep it is excellent.

I guess you get what you pay for!

Pros: location.
Cons: cleanliness
Location: location good.
Having read reviews we expected basic and small rooms, but did at least expect it to be clean. The owners are very friendly (and a little crazy)- the room wasn't ready when we turned up, but that was OK as they let us leave stuff in the room. However when we finally came back to sleep the room still was pretty dirty, even though it had been 'cleaned'. I guess it was more of a lick and a promise that it had had, the sheets were fresh, but had hair on them, so maybe their laundry facilities aren't too good. There was a pretty nasty smell from the shower too, and the plug looked pretty clogged with someone elses hair. We stayed in a double room- from walking past the dorm rooms these seemed pretty crowded and small for the number of people in them. Certainly wouldn't have liked that option. There is potential as location is good, the rooms are OK and would be fine if they had only been clean. Also the bed was very uncomfortable- the owners claimed it was a new bed, but if so it must have been pretty cheap, as you could feel the springs threw the mattress.
