Palmers Lodge Swiss Cottage - Hostel, London, United Kingdom

perfect for roof spaces & school children hostel
The 20 person female room is up in the roof, as a tall person i spent the whole week hitting my head or back on the roof beams trying to get into the bed (which was smaller than your normal single bed), there was no need for the pillow either which was wafer thin. A school group showed up while staying there which meant no kitchen service until late as they refused to serve anyone else until the school group arrived, ate and left again (they weren't there when my friends went to eat). But hey, they compensated us with 20% off at a resturant 5 minutes away, this resturant did not have anything for less than £10 on the menu, so 20% off wasnt very helpful when we had only been going to spend £5 for food and drink. So if you are really short and hopefully dont get a school group staying at the same time as you, then stay here.

Okay area
The area is good, next to the underground and lots of things in the area. Only problem is that part of town closes at midnight so if you want to drink late you have to go to another area.

Pros: Almost everything was great. The location was perfect as it was close to the city and had direct tube to wembley stadium. Quiet neighbourhood & friendly staff. They had a laundry within the building making it rly convenient. The building even looked great. Has elevator to the basement so you dont have to drag your luggage down the stairs. Have reasonably priced foods. Great grocery store near by. Even had a small korean groceries store across the big road. Close to 2 tube stations. With Jubilee line and Metropolitan lines covering most of the main tourist areas. Cons: They dont empty the bins in rooms daily. I stayed for 7 nights and the bin in my room was overflowing started to smell. Same goes with kitchen. I think they do empty daily but the bin was always so full when i was there. Also, kitchenwares weren't so clean.
