Loved this hostel. Location was perfect, and the common areas were great. Only glitch was no wifi in my room (I think it was room #3). Will stay there again.

Probably one of the best youth hostels in London : for this price, you won't find a better place. Very beautiful building, tidy, clean, secure... The breakfast is included and not so bad - remember you're in England. The underground is 10min walk but there are buses to Victoria (52), the British Museum (10), central areas.

Very helpful and polite staff. The morning breakfast had some really good freshly baked bread. Need to have it before 8 if you wish to have the warm fresh bread. A good place to stay at while in London and value for money.

Excellent location, easy access to bus routes and only a little walk to the nearest tube station. Insanely close to the museum's and some great cafes. Would definitely consider staying here again the next time I visit London.

It's in a beautiful building in a great location, the staff are friendly, organized, and enthusiastic (at all hours of the night), and the rooms were nice, large, and very clean. The bathroom was also a really good size, and the lounge area and kitchen added to the friendly atmosphere. I only have two real complaints: the blind on the window was pretty much see-through which led to an early morning wake-up, and breakfast was sparse. Still one of the best hostels I have stayed at in London!

Great atmosphere, loved meeting people in the lounge/kitchen areas. The location was convenient for visiting all sights and areas in London. Would come back in the future. Staff is friendly and accessible. Oh and a large kitchen for cooking cheap meals

Great location, staff available 24/7, walking distance to supermarket and amazing kitchen. Welcoming common room and good breakfast. Lost points on our review for lack of curtains and bathroom facilities being outdated.

Loved staying here! Came alone for two nights before another flight. The best aspect of the hostel is the location, which was an easy walk from the underground. Since I was only here for such a short time, being close to the muséums and hyde park meant I could see more than I'd thought. Breakfast was also a nice touch :)

Loved this hostel. I had a really great stay, such a great location being so close to Hyde Park and easy to get around. Good security and met some cool people. The common area was great to watch movies and provided a good social area to connect with other travellers. Staff was great and gave some great recommendations. Breakfast was very basic. I would definitely stay here again.

very good location besides a little bit far from the subway. The bathroon was not so clean and we have to share to all the people in the room. Poor breakfast. Good hostel but very expensive.

Probably not the best if you're traveling alone, as most people are just passing through or with their own groups. The guy at the desk was very friendly and helpful, definitely brought a great energy to the place.The rest of the staff didn't seem very interested in talking to the guests, but were still helpful. Beds are great, and I loved the cages beneath. The shower started flooding! Breakfast was cereal and juice. Quiet location, not much of a nightlife. Good quality, not very personable.

Our stay here was pleasant, mostly because of the very nice and helpful staff, the very safe area and the fact that there was breakfast included. Yet the place could really use some work on the rooms - maybe a locker with password, since the rollers under the bed were very easy to just push your hand into. The windows were "thin", meaning that it felt like standing on the street from the noise, and you had to open them at night because of the lack of airconditioning. Very very nice staff though!

It was a definitely good stay there. Staffs were very friendly and the location was very close to main centre in London. If I visited in London again I would stay there.

Good location; close to Hyde Park. Interesting old building. No air conditioning makes for a really warm room on the high up floors. Staff is ok. Free Breakfast and access to the kitchen. Wifi is slow.

Very homey feel to this hostel. Which is incredible considering how big it is. Really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were so helpful and friendly. It is in a pricey neighbourhood but being next the Natural History Museum and Hyde Park means there is plenty to do. Highly recommend this hostel!
