Right next to the beautiful hyde park. Not much of an atmosphere but I'm only at hostels to sleep not to hang out so it was fine. Bathrooms are small and not great but tolerable.


Room was nice and bright, would have been good to have a smaller light for each bed as not everyone gets back at the same time. Staff weren't very friendly and would have been good to have a tap in the room. Great location and would most likely book here again.


the bathroom was a bit small

Good for partying. hot women everywhere. bars at your doorstep.Rent a bike and hit the brewery across the river!


All the time I reserve the Basic Domitory because I dislike bathroom inside of the room, and they put me in different room.


Hostel was right opposite the natural history museum which was cool! Easy to locate from nearby tube stations and easy to walk to earls court from here. Would stay here again. Very clean and quiet.

Hi there, Thank you very much for dropping a line after your recent stay in London. We are glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry to hear that you found, there were not enough showers and toilets in the building. We have public toilets in our basement, ground floor and 1st floor. Thank you for choosing Meininger, and we hope to see you again! Your Meininger team in London.


There were 4 German men drinking in the bedroom and it was policy to not bring alcohol in the rooms. The other guests were messy. The beds were very hard and uncomfortable. The bathroom was tiny and barely any place to shower. Many guests were out late and were loud at 3:00 in the morning.


Very clean, more like a hotel. Great if you want a good sleep, not great if you are looking to socialize and meet people


More like a hotel than a hostel. It felt very sterile. I would recommend another hostel for a more "backpacking" experience for sure. Great location though and no real problems besides the atmosphere.


The male staff on duty on that evening was very coureous. I wanted an urgent print out of a letter. And he gave it to me in no time.

Nice hostel, great location for museums but not too many fod locations nearby.


a beautiful and clean hostel with friendly staff right in the heart of Kensington


Nice and friendly staff.very clean ! Only the toilet was bigger, it would be perfect


I had a wonderful time here in London. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. The rooms were kept very clean and well stocked with the necessities. I met some very amazing people whom I can now call long friends. Thanks to the staff at Meinenger's, I will always look for one on my travels. Thanks again, Shaun Verespej USA


I was in a small room with four beds, and they added another bed and it was really really crowded.


not a place for younger people in my mind

- WiFi connection works very well everywhere excepts on the toilets. - Atmosphere in the rooms are quite. - They need to improve the showers because many of them are out of service. - Has no kitchen. Only a microwave and a toaster. - The Lobby Computer is not free. You have to pay for use it. - Breakfast price is around £6.50. - Prices of the beers are expensive (£3.50). You can get two for this price in Waitrose or Tesco supermarkets.
