Good atmosphere and clean.
I stayed in this hostel for a month or so. It's right around the corner from the Earl's Court station which means
easy access to the Distric and Piccadilly lines. It's rather clean and when I left they said they were going to give
the non-smoking thing a try. I stayed in a four person room with ensuite. Some of the ensuites are nice, others
could use some work - the luck of the draw. While I was there they were turning all of the bunkbeds into solid
wodden structures built onto the wall which was much better. The beanbags in the lounge area were great, except
when one of them split open. Good atmosphere. This hostel is very secure - security code for the front door, lock
on the room door and a personal locking cabinet in your room.

A home away from home.
This small 45-bed hostel is around the corner from Earl's Court station on a quiet side street and is one of the homeliest hostels
I've been to. I've been here for four months (so far) and am quite at home with the clean facilities, large kitchen, and loads of
other long-termers living here. It's a very friendly place and you can't help but meet lots of people on the long kitchen table.
The showers are really powerful an many of the larger rooms have their own bathrooms. The triple-decker bunks in the
dorms can be a bit daunting, but it makes for very spacious rooms. The place is owned by a young brother-sister combo - one
of whom is really cool, the other not so much. Staff tend to keep to themselves, but know your name and are pleasant enough.
There's a safe in the office, all the rooms lock, and the main door has a coded lock on it, making everything feel very secure.
The TV room has a few giant beanbags on the floor which are great to pass out on after a long day at work or a long night
partying with the mainly Aussie hostel-mates.
