A Pretty Good Hostel
I stayed in Hammersmith at the Globe Trotter Inn twice, my first stay for six consecutive nights. I got lucky, being there in February, and no one else was assigned to my dorm.
I found the dorms to be more thoughtful than most other hostels: while they had the standard lockers, they also had reading lamps and curtains on the beds - things that not every hostel owner thinks of. In terms of amenities there is a pub in the hostel with cheap pub food, coin laundry, and coin operated computers. The breakfast was free, continental, and my tip to you would be to go to it early: later in the morning all the good stuff might be gone. Also if you go early enough, you can pinch a bagel for later, unseen.
The staff varied of course, from person to person, and there were a couple staff members who were hardly friendly.
In terms of location it was near the tube station of Stamford Brook and an easy ride into London and all of the sites.
Services are not readily available near the hostel though. There are pubs and grocers nearby for sure, but not tons by any stretch and I found myself walking long distances to find things that I was looking for. A good place to stay though, just make sure you have all the food you need as finding grocers was a bit of a nuisance for me. [more ]
