The hostel was clean and the facilities offered where adequate. Bar prices were favorable. The only issue was there was maintenance going on along the corridor from my room and this commenced at approximately 8.30 am and I could here every bang and drill for most of the morning and afternoon. I appreciate such an old building requires lots of work so its not really a complaint - more a comment.

The staff was fantastic. Very helpful. Wifi was great in room and lounge, very clean. Comfy beds. Plenty of outlets. No lockers in rooms, only small ones for rent in lounge. Not the best hostel for meeting people, but great for a good nights sleep.

I only stayed at this hostel for one night, but I didn't like it. It doesn't provide any sort of atmosphere. All it provides is a cheap bed in an expensive city. If that's all you're after, it's worth it for the location alone. If you're looking for a good hostel and to meet other travellers, look elsewhere.

Not so bad a hostel. Has everything you need and right in central London. But no atmosphere as the building shares with a scouts centre and a baby daycare downstairs so there's always people coming through all day and night. Hard to socialise in the lounge area. It could do with a proper kitchen too as the cafe is a bit pricey seeing as it's London. Solid place if you just want somewhere to sleep but if you want more livelihood best try somewhere else.

Hi there, Thanks for reviewing us. We do understand that the mix of people who come to our building on a daily basis is not the right thing for everyone but we're trying our best to create spaces where only our guests hang out and can meet each other. We would be very happy to welcome you again! Best wishes Your MEININGER Team

Good location overlooking the Natural History museum. Room was quite small, bathroom was tiny and resembled an aeroplane toilet...

Very good experience. Central location near Hyde park, can walk to Natural History Museum, tube, and notting hill, etc. I got a free upgrade to 4 person dorm room on Sunday night, and turns out that I am the only one in the room. Good service at reception, secured (ID check after 1130pm), feel safe and clean throughout the hostel.

Shower facilities were poor, compared to other hostels. Although I visited before and after new years day, the price was really expensive.

I really like the location! Very safe with lots of great places to eat nearby. With two tube stations withing walking distance, it made it very easy to get around. The rooms and facilities were kept clean; however, the cleaning staff kept remaking bed (even beds that were claimed by stayers). I stayed for a week, and I had to move beds twice bc the staff at made my bed ( even though my tag was in the name plate and I had clothes on the bed) and a new stayer thought the bed was free and took over
