Rooms were like saunas, it was about 10-15 degrees hotter in the rooms than outside. Also no lift and there are 5 floor which is an absolutely massive amount of stairs. Not really close to any tube stops, so you have to walk a lot if staying here. Really close to Kensington gardens and hyde park which is nice (as well as a few museums) but not too much going on there. The room was clean but the bathroom was a but gross. Prepare to really sweat it out if you stay here, would not recommend

Maybe my favorite hostel! The guy staff members are awesome, right by the best (and free) museums, and the common room is amazing--movies, tons of books, tables, couches. I just wish it hadn't been so hot and there had been more outlets! But I charged my things in the common area and it sort of makes sense there'd be no AC in such a beautiful old building. If you want to be by the museums and the park and some cool shops this is the place to be. Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is located in a beautiful part of London and with some walking we covered a lot of the London's tourist attractions. The staff were friendly and helpful whenever we asked for anything. We really enjoyed our time here.

Very nice and clean hostel. Great with 24 h reception. Friendly and helpful staff. Good location and easy to find. Public transport just outside the door. Excellent with kitchen and fridge. Also good with basic breakfast offered and free tea & coffee available. Would definitely stay here again!

Everything you need, not a particularly social atmosphere but perfect for those who plan on spending most of their time out of the hostel.

I had an amazing time in there, highly recommendable. The only thing I found was the hot, it was very soffocating inside the hostel because the don't have enought fans and it was a hot summer and that the wifi signal didn't made it to my room because of the double door. Otherwise I had a great experience, the staff was very friendly, the breakfast was ok, the bed was comfortable, my room was quiet beside it was next to the kitchen (has double door) and the location was excellent ;).

The only issue I really had was there are only 3 or 4 plug ins in each room. This is clearly insufficient for a 10 person dorm. Also, the wifi was very good in the lobby but not so good in the room.

Lovely location, staff, and common space. A treat to walk up the gorgeous stairs, or hang out in the large common lounge - each with great atmosphere. The kitchen was a kitchen, and breakfast wasn't much (brown buns, various spreads).Our washroom floors got wet quite quickly and noisy late-night party folk kept us awake with their hallway shouting about their love lives (do wish the staff could have addressed this more quickly). Netflix in common space was fun. Beds were clean, but room too hot!

This hostel is very expensive for being a hostel. However it´s a great place to stay: there is a very big living room, free internet in the whole buiding, and staff is very nice and helpfull. I would say it worth the price.

Excellent value for money. Standard hostel, quite a large one, many floors. Close-ish to South Kensington station and Kensington Gardens / Hyde Park. Unremarkable breakfast. Quiet area, upscale, no security concerns. Ok beds, ok storage, clean all around. Bathrooms/WCs not too amazing. Staff OK.

The staff is really friendly and ready to respond at all your enquiries. They pay attention to speak clearly and slowly for whom are not good english speaker (as me). The hostel is cleaned daily with a lovely smell which fly through corridors. Adaptors can be hire for 5£ deposit.
