Highlight of this hostel is the staff. They are a great bunch of people, from various backgrounds and all with their own story to share. They create a great social atmosphere in and around the hostel, hanging out with guests and organising social events around London!
The hostel itself is pretty decent, with a couple of great communal areas - the lounge is fun, plus the kitchen and dining hall come in handy very often. Location of the hostel is great as it's close to Queensway (central line), Bayswater (circle/district lines), Paddington (piccadilly line & national rail), and it's also close to Hyde Park and trendy Notting Hill!
Being a youth hostel, it's a terrific place to stay for anyone 18-35 and wanting to have a fun time in London!

We got to the airport at 3:50 AM (we were flying out of Cork) and then we realized that it actually didn't open until 4:40 AM so unfortunately we had to wait in the lobby until then :/. Oh well, we'll know for next time, at least we weren't rushing to catch the …
My first port of call into London is Paddington Station and straight away I got busy checking out many of the various attractions around London town.
It's great to be living in such a large and vibrant city where it is possible to get out and do something different every now and then; experience some of the many different attractions or …
... no lineup, but i decied i wanted to wait to go in the front enterance. Walking in the front, after the security check, you walked into the Central Hall; a gigantic room. In the middle of the room, stands the Diplodocus dinosaur. At 26 metres long, it is the "worlds longest dinosaur".
After looking around the Central hall, I went into the Dinosaur area. I have to admit, it was nothing special conpared to the Tyrell in Drumheller. I mean, there wern't many dinosaur ...
