First port of call is Paddington Station, and luckily it's only a short walk from there to my first hostel. This place was pretty ordinary and had a lot of student groups staying. I didn't like the vibe there and that's why I changed hostel to a place that I was able to relax a bit more, cook my own meals, and hang out with the staff and other …
Ok, so, this day. Wow, was it busy.
I began my day with a walk through Kensington Gardens, wandering about and not trying for any particular route until the end, when I figured I should be making my way out and still hadn't seen the Peter Pan statue. After I found it, as I was trying to find my way out I realized that I had actually made …
I LOVE LONDON.
Like, I could see myself living here. It kind of hit me as, well, revealing, that I could/can say that after only having been here for a little over a day, when I still can't see myself living in Athens for amount of permanency.
I woke up early today, only to realize that the shower is possibly the one downfall of …
So we didn't actually do a whole lot in London on Monday.
Our plane didn't leave until like 2 pm from Athens, but the metro wasn't running and Syntagma was closed off meaning we couldn't take the bus from there, so we just ended up taking a cab. Not a big deal, but a little worrying when it was all happening.

Woke up bloody early; for some reason my body reaaaally can't get enough of not sleep.

How has this hostel rated in the past?
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!
