Best hostel I've been so far (in London). Situated between Gloucester Road Station and South Kensington Station with only a 5 to 10 minute walk. Very nice dorms, friendly and helpful staff. Would definitly go back if I were to go to London.

I stayed here for one night in early july. Its quite close to South Kensington tube station, about a 10 min walk. We were watching a concert at the royal albert hall, which was less than 30 secs away so perfect for us. Not hard to find. The staff were really nice.Our room was situated on the 4th floor, no lift so had to lug away bags all the way, but this was quite minor. Really clean rooms with lockers under beds and an ensuite. Breakfast was included, rolls and cornflakes. Would stay again!

The hostel is very safe and in a fabulous location with easy access to three tube stations. Staff were helpful and friendly. The bathroom is quite small and one morning the water didn't work, but besides that the other facilities (kitchen and common areas) are very well kept.

The hostel was clean and comfortable. I particularly appreciated the wifi and large secure storage under the beds. All the staff were really lovely and had great recommendations.

Great hostel. Super friendly staff! The six bed seemed a little more crowded than others however the lounge and kitchen areas are big so you have space to relax after long days

London youth hostel was very good. Huge main room and kitchen are very convenients to meet other people. Moreover, you have some activities in partnership with hostel, which is very good. Moreover, the staff is very nice, smiling and they fon't hesitate to help you. finally, hostel is close to the ambassies, which is very safe for travellers. And some famous museums are very close.

The rooms were quite spacious and clean. I appreciated the 24 hour reception and getting money back for renting towels. However, I think it would be better to provide padlocks that people can use. The breakfast was pretty basic and small, but it is nice to be provided. More outlets would also be beneficial in rooms of 6.

It's a pity they don't have 1 more shower per Etage. Also, it's a pity they don't have single power outlets for every bed; it feels weird to let all your really expensive eletronic stuff lay out in the room without security.

The location


83%

Stayed here just for the night as I had an interview the following day. Dorm was nice and clean, it was a little hot as no AC but not too much of a problem. Nice common area, staff great and friendly. I would stay here again, nice area of London.

Very clean hostel in a great location. Staff are friendly enough. This hostel is great for groups but more difficult to meet people if you are a solo traveller. Breakfast was decent. Good price as well so would stay again.

Great hostel, had everything you needed, staff always looking to help, right near a metro and shops. Safe area, clean rooms - would definitely recommend!

You have to be looking for certain things before you stay here. It's not much of a party hostel, nor is the location that good. The tube is a bit of a walk, and the local spots nearby are pretty pricey. The perks of this hostel are the amazing security, pretty nice staff, and relatively cleanliness of the facilities. You definitely pay a little more than I think it's worth even if you're searching for those specific things in your selection.

Great staff and solid hostel. Location is about a ten-minute walk from the closest tube but it's right next to the Natural History and Science Museum, which are awesome. Really big hostel but they have the facilities to handle it and the WiFi works well (and in the rooms too!)

Could not have asked to stay at a better location. Staff were amazing and it was never to much hassle to help you out. I've stayed at other hostels in London but I would choose Astor Hyde park over all of them. I would definitely recommend.
