    Pros: -nice location far away from Paddington Sta. Just a few minutes -Many cafes and restaurant around area -Great free breakfast -nice staff (woman staff at the reception so nice and helpful) Cons: - not so clean actually quite dirty! I had a dirty bed sheet (many hairs on bed!!! Unacceptable!!!) -pretty bad bunk bed if you stay in a lower bed you can’t sit before your head will hit the ceiling of the bed(I’m not that tall just 165cm) -no hairdryer (you have to pay money if you wanna use) -manual key to get into the room but keys are very problem because it always stuck!!

    Great location, improvements in process ”

    We spent two nights here. First, the staff are incredible: friendly, warm, welcoming. There was a minor glitch when we arrived, (not the Prides fault,) and it was rectified immediately. The bunk beds are only two instead of three high so less people packed into rooms. You get a cloth bag with clean linen and a towel (!) and you make the bed up yourself. If you spring for the woman's dorm, which I highly suggest, the beds are already made up and there's more space, as well as a desk, chair and mirror in the room. Showers have HOT water! Beds are so-so, but ok for a few nights. Amazing breakfast with great vegetarian options. Very close to Tube, rail and bus lines. We will DEFINITELY be back! Cons: It can be noisy - you're in London, the Pride realises this & offers free earplugs. There's no lift, which isn't a factor for 60 year-old me, but it might be for others. You may have to queue for a (less than powerful) shower, or wander between floors to find a free one, there are several.

    merits: very convenient location, just a minute to Paddington underground & railway station. budget hostel rate which includes full English breakfast! rooms specually bathroom are spacious. many restaurant choices nearby: noodles, burger king, mcdonald, KFC, etc. Disadvantage: the height of lower decker bed is too low that no one can sit on it with straight back. no laundry facilities. no escalators/ lift.

    Good location, but noisy. Difficult to sleep. Super value breakfast.”

    Ask for a room at the rear of the property if you want to get any sleep. Great location, 2 minutes walk to Paddington railway station and underground station. Facilities okay but need some modernisation and could be a bit cleaner. Not enough electric sockets in rooms, difficult to find a free socket to charge phone. Could do with curtains for each bed space or privacy. Note that clean sheets and towels are issued when you check in and pay £20 refundable deposit. Good free wi-fi throughout building. Great choice of breakfast including full English. Good value rooms - I paid just over £30 for 2 nights including breakfast.

    Good stay in Paddington”

    Good pub with nice selection of drinks, Friendly staffs, good breakfast

    The check-in time is fixed at 2pm... which is not good if you arrive way too early... room is too cold at night where the heater does not seem to be working. Rooms are relatively smaller (cosy, to be on the positive side). Able to feel the vibrations since the underground station is nearby. The daily breakfast provided is delicious! Advice: Use underground exit 1 @ Paddington - on the Green/Yellow line.
