Surprisingly comfortable youth hostel, helpful staff. Good value for money. Noisy bar but luckily our room was far away from it. Noise from other residents coming home late disturbing at night.
The place is fantastic and the staff was very kind.
Very helpfull staff and some are even french speakers. Great breakfast organisation and good choice. Nice to have a bar in the hostel for the first night ! Having a big and comfy living room would be nice.
Toilets and showers Luggage room is not properly secured
Price Room was a bit small
Location was good. Reception staff very friendly. Breakfast was a bit like organised chaos and the kitchen and accomodation staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful. Also, charging £2 per towel per day was a bit ridiculous.
Friendly and clean. Breakfast included. Cosy. Nice building.Good sound-proofing. Room too small, Lockers not big enough for small suitcase.
Annoying and dirty.
Hotel staff were very helpful with arranging taxis and giving bus info and directions. The food was good and food prices reasonable. Not enough internet availability. Not enough telephone availability. Not enough showers.
Central Room was cold. Breakfast choice poor
Staff displayed exceptional courtesy , were very competent and helpful when fielding requests .In this group setting I found superior levels of consideration among fellow guests.. .The buffet breakfast menu is healthy and the food was good. My family have been part of Guides & Scouting movement over the years & hope to spend a couple of vacation days here in in London in 2008.. .Most of all, the facility is safe, spotless ,very central and convenient for getting around .Good people,good work. In spite of the 'no takeouts' notices ,noticed some packing sandwiches for their lunches... This must mess up the food preparation planning , is not fair for others ,leaving much less choice for..later breakfast arrivals.
Pros: nice, helpful people at the reception; very good location; Cons: not too compfortable bed; very small shower; it was quite cold in the room in November.
Location was great. Bathroom was very small but we knew that it was a hostel. The sheets and pillow cases were very clean but the duvets and pillows themselves could have done with replacing.
Cleanliness of room and other facilities. Price was excellent value for the money.
Close to tube stations in central/west London. Easy access to all of central London from here. Museums close by. Very reasonably priced. Rather noisy air conditioning in room.
I have been coming to B-P house for nearly twenty years, and it has always been a great place to stay. The building is well maintained and the staff friendly. The decor in the bedrooms is a little old, and the room we had cramped as there was a sofa bed in there (Rm 401).
excellent location room quite cold, no tea/coffee facilities in room
It has washer and dryer facilities. Friendly staff. Remind me my time when i was living in university dorm ten years ago. The bed is a bit dirty, too many tennagers making noises at night. Water from shower is too slow.
the staff was knowledgable on the transportation system, which is a big help. the location of the hostel was great...close to the tube station and there is a bus stop right in front of the hostel. the cafe in the hostel has good food for good price and value. i would probably stay there again. the dryer was out of order. the bins can stack with garbage at times. the shower floors were wet most of the time.
the bathroom was clean, honestly didnt expect that !!! and the staff were very helpful, and the hostel in general was secure. i would diffinetly stay there again in my next visit.
It was cheap. It was loud and smoky.
The hostel was very clean. The bathrooms were cleaned every few hours. There was a nice mix of travelers,young and old,people travelling in groups and lone travelers. There were also young families and babies. Lots of people ,lots of activity. At night ,there was added security in the building. I was very happy with the Generator Hostel. The mornings were rough .You had to time it right to get a sink in the bathroom. Everyone seemed to need the showers at the same time. You just have to try to avoid the busy times.
nice, friendly staff. Very good services.
enviroment creak of the bed
It was all clean, the staff is nice and there is a good mood there They didn't provide padlock for luggage lockers
Location staff No blanket
friendly staff, free wifi, excellent location.
Location was great, café downstairs was fine. It was loud, hard to get sleep at night. I could hear my neighbors through the walls and when the doors shut it is really loud and echoes down the hallway.
Great location Cleanliness in the bathroom quite poor, one day there was not even hot water for the shower...
The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The prices are the best compared with others. The breakfast was always served in time and wasperfect. Skype
The efficient re-action of the staff. The floor carpet is very dirty. The electirc plug is not enought. There are obly two plugs for 4-bed room.
I really liked the humanity of the staff I did not like the toilets and showers were broken because
Fantastic location right near Kings Cross station, excellent value, great overall look and feel, very laid back & surprisingly quiet
For what I have paid,I cannot complain,I did sleep well and wake up in the morning could not complain for that The only thing I noted was when I arrived I gave my name,the receptionist told me to pay in Cash(£10) she could not take payment on the card since it was just £10,any other alternative,what if I did not have cash on
The common rooms were great. It was really nice to have the opportunity to meet new people, when spending time in the TV and internet-room, and in the kitchen. All of these rooms were newly renovated, and the self-catering kitchen was quite well equipped. I stayed in a 4-bed room. It was really small and there was barely room for one person to stand at one time. However, because you spend very little time in the room, it was good enough. The bed quite hard, but I slept well still. The bathrooms and showers were clean, but they were old and shabby, but hopefull they are planing to renovate them soon.
friendliness of the staff, already recommended to several others
