Overall experience was poor, a lot left to be desired. Strict 10am checkout of a room barely bigger than 3m x 3m. No free wifi. The guy pleaded for cash before i could even see the room to lay my bags out. Good location with a lot around. 24hr security. 33pound and cold water showers.


Staff wasn't very friendly, and you have to pay for everything( wi-fi, towels,lockers, storage luggage...)


Nice small hostel right next to Hyde Park. Very nice and helpful staff.


Me and my friend stayed at Royal Bayswater Hostel for two nights in a 20-people mixed dorm. We had a great experience staying at Royal Bayswater and felt that the hostel was excellent value for the money. The staff was always friendly and helpful, the room was clean and tidy and the location of the hostel was perfect.

I recommend that one, the localization is really good, close to undergroud station, in front of the Hyde Park.


Pretty cheap h, though the design is a little bit old. Nevertheless a comfortable stay, though breakfast could be expanded. Staff are friendly and quickly sort you out. Quite a good place hostel if you compare it to other hostels around London. Great location, as Hyde Park is next to you, shops are 1 minute away and the Queensway station is on your doorstep.


Wifi not free


The hostel is located right next to Hyde Park and the subway, which is nice. The staff is nice, but that's about it. You have to pay for the wifi (why?). There is a service charge of 5% on card payments (this is advertised on their web page but it seems completely out of scale). The athmosphere in the rooms and the lobby is uninviting. Go to Westland Hotel 500 meter down the street instead. They are cheaper priced and have none of the vices.

This hostel is only a "hostel" for the dorms. I do not recommend this hostel -Wifi is paying (where is the spirit of youth hostels ?) -breakfast is different depending on your room: worse quality of food is served in the basement, better one on ground floor. This is really disturbing. Tasteless "orange juice" (yellow and sugared water) -our room was ugly, the walls were dirty, the bathroom was scary Positive aspects: friendly staff, close parks, and Tube station, only. BUT AVOID IT !!!!
