Hostelworld says:

The Meininger's Hyde Park's biggest selling point is definitely its location. It's set in the beautiful borough of Kensington and is directly opposite the world famous Natural History Museum. Just a few minutes down the road you'll find the Science Museum, Hyde Park and plenty of shopping, including the exclusive Harrods. Once you're done for the day, kick back in the comfy lounge and surf the free WiFi or chill out with friends or fellow travellers at the bar.

    The hostel is clen and tidy; staff member at the reception was polite, efficient and helpful. Shower, toilet were in good shape. The room was smallish and street noise at high level. I recommed hostel for short or longer stay in London.

    This was my second time staying in this hostel. I liked it better the first time though. This time I stayed in a basic room which means I had to share bathroom and toilets with the rest of the floor. Even though the staff cleaned it everyday the other guests weren't very considerate. The location is amazing and I always feel very secure here. Both the bedrooms and the common room are great. It can be a bit pricey but it is worth to pay a bit more to have such a pleasant stay!
