The hostel is bare bones. Great value for the price. In close walking distance to Kensal Green tube, a french café that serves full English breakfast, a post office, small markets, etc. The shower is ensuite with a sink. Shared toilets. Staff are multi-lingual, friendly and available 24 hours a day. There's a restaurant attached to it and in the evenings a bar opens. The facilities may be a bit outdated(needs paint).....but it's a great place to crash and very clean. I'd book to stay there again.

I think that for 6 gbp is good, but no more than 8 gbp

Hostel 639 is a very convenient place to stay if you are in London for a long weekend and doesnt break the bank.

It's a poor quality hostel, no water sometimes, too cold in the rooms so I slept with my jacket. Sometimes no Internet. You have to pay for the Internet connection and no refund possible once you pay. There are not lockers.
