                  This place was so horrible. I usually take the description given on the website with a grain of salt but the description given for this place was completely deceptive and untrue. There are so many better hostels to stay at in London for the same price so there is no reason for anyone to go here. If you like having basic amenities and don't like having your stuff stolen then avoid this place like the plague.

                • Family with children
                  8.2

                  10ł/Person/night...who would expect much for this amount, anyway? The stuff was kind and helpful, heating and hot shower day and night, nice breakfasts, as much as you want. (Always the same, it would be boring after a week, but all right for three mornings.) Regularly cleaned toilets,stairs. Excellent location, all the great sights within 20-25 minutes by bus or underground. Shops, and a pub nearby.All in all, price/value absolutely all right. I have stayed of course at much better places, but in London, just for staying there for night sleeps, great. Next time we will choose this place again.

                  Noisy...heavy traffic in the streets, clubbing neighbours. Earplugs helped, and after visiting the sights all day long, you will sleep deep.

                  5.4

                  Close to a subway, close to Notting Hill and a library

                  The two kitchens are quite incoveniently located (second and third floor), quite small, with no utensils and rather dirty

                • Couple
                  5.0

                  Unorganised, a bit of farce trying to sort beds out and unless you know and like the hostel-type way - do not bother!

                • Single
                  2.8

                  The equipment is poor , toilets not flush properly, no hand washing liquid I the washing room though complaint few times. Hygiene is an issue. Before you get your toast for your breakfast, there are few people have touched the toast in the basket to feel if they are still warm enough. You have to ask and wait for everything, no more toast, no more clean knives, no more hot water for making coffee....and don't expect staff will offer your smile. Most of them are robots here. Very disappointing!!

                  Staff was rude, beds where extremeley unconfortable and hard to climb un to bunk beds, dining room was dirty.

                  That it was fairly quiet

                  The mattress was awful - the worst i've had. The place looks like a dump. There are a lot of stairs if you have luggage and the area is not easily accessible after a night out in London

                • Family with children
                  6.6

                  the staff were friendly, it was ok for what we needed which was somewhere to sleep for the night

                  i wasnt on the booked in list and staff had to fit us in

                • Family with children

                  Nothing is satisfied for me!

                  The environment is really really bad. Even worse,the staff's attitude is bad as well. Hotel639 is the most lousy hotel which I have stayed before.

                  Showers in the room. You cant take the shower when everyone sleeping.

                  Dirty, crowded, full with strange people from all over the world, bad location but close to the tube,

                • Single
                  7.4

                  Convenience, suited my need and cost

                  Nothing to do with the hostel as such, I booked on line but they had no record of it when I got there. I produced the print out and they accommodated me. This did concern me, what if they had been full?

                • Single
                  4.6

                  The price.

                  The staff were very unaccommodating and obviously foreign backpackers with no skills in their area of work. The smell of the building was woeful and the internet didn't work during my stay. You were required to pay by cash and all documentation was done manually without any computer making it hard to track a guests details.

                • Group of friends
                  8.8

                  It was very cheap, particularly for central London.

                  The mattresses in our room were well used, I slept in the groove between the springs, but for £15 a night I'm not complaining.

                  Everything is correct for thé price but breakfast can be better i thing
