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.

Top location, cool architecture and cool chill out area in reception area, relaxed atmosphere yet appears well run,plenty of hot water in the clean and efficient en - suite bathrooms. Would be nice if breakfast was less expensive or included but there are no shortage of places outside.and has no bearing on whether I would stay again because it is a really nice place to stay in a top location ........

The only thing that annoyed me was the top bed is never made when you arrive so you have to make it and touch the mattress underneath. (maybe the cleaner could have a step platform or easier steps that go up to the bed like in hong kong) Good place to stay definitely, been here 2x now

Hi guest, Thank your for the great rating! We are aware of the problem with the bunk beds - unfortunately our housekeeping company doesn't allow the making of the top bunks due to health&safety reasons :( but we're are working hard on a solution (and will get new mattresses, duvets and pillows soon!). See you soon! Your Meininger Team

Great hostel! Good location, clean and very comfortable. Can be not a good idea be there if you are traveling alone. There isn't a comum nice area and that's why should be not easy to make new friends. The staff is not friendship and helpfull. BUT the hostel is really good! Traveling with friends is the best option in London!

This was my 2nd stay in a Meininger hostel, having stayed in one in Austria before. The Hyde Park location is amazing, it's the perfect city center location. The hostel was incredibly clean, luggage room available and lockers in room, which is a plus. Overall Meininger seems to be a good hostel chain. However, it seems to be lacking in atmosphere a bit. There was a common room, but few people were hanging out. It's a good place to stay for a night, but not the place to meet fellow travelers

lousy security issue--they should guide customers to use strong padlock--IT"S THEIR RESPONSIBILITY!

Dear guest, we kindly offer our guests, which are staying in dormitories (shared rooms) to lock their bags in the lockers with padlocks, due to they share their room with strangers. If you are staying in a private room, the use of padlocks is not necessary for sure ;-) Kind Regards, Your MEININGER Team London

The shower/bathroom wasn't the cleanest but the rest of the room and the hostel were very clean

I live outside of London so I often come in for the weekends. I do not require much from the hostels that I stay at, but it was definitely a very knowledgeable staff- very welcoming and helpful when I did have questions. Good location for some great museums. I will be staying here again.

A good stay at a decent hostel. The staff were very competent, efficient and friendly and the location is very good. Having stayed at Meininger hostels in Berlin and Germany, it was a bit disappointing that the room, especially the bathroom, at the Hyde Park hostel was dated and extremely small (although I appreciate space is at a premium in London!).

Had a really lovely stay. Staff were really friendly, we got a free upgrade on breakfast because it was my birthday. Onsite parking. Will be back!

I'd booked an 8-bed room and was placed in a 4-bed room, which was great because it was quieter and I was less concerned about security. The bathrooms were great - finally a hostel with individual bathrooms/showers rather than a big room with a bunch of stalls. However, I would have liked to have a quiet sort of lounge place to hang out... they only really had the lobby, which was very crowded and loud most of the day, especially since the building hosts a whole number of activities daily.

Dear guest, thank you for your positive feedback regarding our rooms. We also have a lounge area on the 1st floor by the breakfast room which is open during all day with some couches and wifi access as well. Its definitely more quiet than the one in the ground floor :-) Greetings from Meininger London

had a perfect stay ! so close to the city, only a two minute walk from earl's court stations. the rooms were okay aswell, i mean for the price i payed it was amazing. it was all pretty clean aswell. the best thing was definitely the staff, they were so lovely and fun to talk to whenever you left/entered the hotel. i would definitely recommend this hotel if you care more about the location than the actual room. i am surely going to come back soon !

I will say that the hostel is an excellent structure, I slept in a dormitory with 12 beds. The room was great for space and comfort the only thing a bit unpleasant was the bathroom, too small, otherwise ok. The breakfast was excellent. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the city.

Not good value when there is no breakfast and no wifi upstairs. Also, I paid over 20 pounds when booking then found the prices had dropped to 13 pounds before getting there. I should have cancelled and rebooked as the hostel was not interested in just charging the decreased amount when I arrived.
