We made it to the Wake Up hostel in Paddington, after we had got back from our afternoon expedition I discovered that I had stupidly locked the key to my padlock inside my bag .... good one Anne, one of the Wake up people had to saw the padlock off, I have since got a new one which has 3 keys so that wont be happening again! The sleep was was …

I spotted someone carrying a bag from the shop we needed to find so Ro ran over the road to ask for directions. We had time so we hurried off in pursuit of geekdom. We found it and it was all we had imagined it to be. Milly was in heaven in the Doctor Who aisle and quickly settled on a rather large tardis with figures to be her significant purchase. We ...

Oh My God
I wouldn't let my doig sleep here. True, you get what you pay for - most of the time. The room had thin wooden partitions with other guests rooms. The bedroom and bathroom in total was about 9 feet square. It must of been 25 degrees. window does not open. Tap dripped all night. Stained sheets. Plug on TV in a dangerous state - hardly any TV reception.
Numerous fire alarms caused by idiots.
All in all the very wworst hovel I ever stayed in.
(Oh, and did I mention the 6 inch gap between the bottom of the insecure bderoom door and the hall way.... anyone could see in....)
I have stayed in cabins at State Parks that were better than this hotel.
The review was right on, Expedia should be ashamed of putting this on thier web site. Iarrived at 9am, as usual I did not expect a room that early. They promised one at noon so I went out to do some sight seeing. I got back at 1pm and they said it woild be ready at 3pm. When I did finally get into my beer soaked cubicle I tried to get some rest. Bad idea, it sounded like the local high school was on spring break out side of my door. I checked out the next morning and luckily found a nice place a couple blocks away. To thier credit, Expedia did refund the remainder of the stay. Avoid this dump.
Yes. we too survived.
The place was somewhat clean. Otherwise I would not recommend it at all ! Like an old, rundown 50's motel. A real dive. Yes, we can laugh & learn. Do NOT stay here unless you like dumps. We wanted to check out and find another place, but would have lost the entire amount-as they make you pay upfront. I can see why. After seeing it most people would leave. There are better hotels I have stayed at, in London for only 20 pounds or so more & will from now on! Expedia should be ashamed to even carry this hotel on it's site.
I have stayed in a couple of hostels all over the world and this was the worst I have ever stayed in. I do not agree at all with the reviewer who says that this is ok for younger people and you pay for what you get. Every other hostel I have ever been to has been of a much better standard and I have never been scared in a hostel before.
My friend and I took a trip to London for spring break this year,
I have stayed at quite a few hotels in London, and this one is definitely the worst one! It can't possibly get worse! The first thing we did when we entered our double room was to cry. We just couldn't believe the terrible state of the room. Limegreen walls, horrible brown curtains, an ever so uncomfortable bed, disgusting bathroom... Need I say more? By the way, the door separating our room from the hallway didn't fit at all, there was a huge gap between the floor and the door, so of course it was very noisy due to the horrible teenagers and drunkards staying there. Those people didn't exactly make us feel safe there either... We were so glad when we checked out of this hotel three days later. I've passed this hotel many times since and it seems to be just as horrible as it used to. If you are wise, do not ignore the bad reviews on this internet-page just because you want to find out for yourself. Trust us! We have been there!
My husband and I just returned from london, where we stayed at the atlantic for 8 nights. I was a little nervous about our stay, having read the somewhat ghastly reviews, but our experience was not too bad.
It was a terrible hotel. The room was in the basement. It was very dark. Garbage was outside the small windows. To come to the room you had to go through the "bar" that was full of drunks. So: If you need a place to sleep after too many beers and nothing more, then it is ok.
Otherwise do not try to save money. Go somewhere else!
The rooms were disgusting for starters. Blood stain on my sheets, floors I wouldn't put bare feet on, nasty showers. I actually tied garbage bags around my feet to take a shower! They lost our online reservation, then we later had problems with the night manager. He claimed that we hadn't paid (when we in fact had paid) and became extremely rude. He actually yelled and we honestly felt (as a couple of lone females) physically threatened at one point. This is from a staff member! He also demanded that WE apologize for wasting his time! Also, very shady local men were hanging out every night in the hotel, both in the bar and wandering the halls. We saw the same two groups of men both nights....quite unsavory types. Obviously no control over who enters the hotel. Whatever you do, don't stay here!
Worst hotel ever!
I read some mixed reviews on other sites but decided to risk it anyway.
Big mistake! My husband and I made reservations for a double assuming that would actually include a double size bed. We got there and the bed was only a full size and you could see the springs, that's how lumpy the bed was! The staff was horribly rude as well. They charged us twice for the hotel on our credit card and when we asked them to fix their mistake, they started yelling at us. Luckily, our credit card company reversed the charge otherwise I don't know what would have happened.
The breakfast was white bread toast, cornflakes and the worst coffee you've ever tasted. I could go on, but I think you get tht point. It was horrible!
