Lo único bueno es que esta bien situado. Había cucarachas en la habitación, la cisterna rota, la ducha salía con agua ardiendo o helada, sin término médico. El recepcionista no sabía no como llegar al aeropuerto. El desayuno malísimo, y todo por 45 euros cama noche, compartiendo con desconocidos.

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...)

L'accoglienza ci ha fregato i soldi nel cambio ha preso 30 euro in più Chiudevano sempre i termosifoni e ci hanno fatto gelare l'ascensore Non funzionava dovevi chiederlo alla reception La colazione era insufficiente non abbondante Giudizio negativo non ci tornerò sicuramente!

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.

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


57%

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 !!!!

Very no frills: don't expect free wifi, lockers, good breakfast, etc etc.

Most hostels now in 2015 have been modernised , furnished and decoded to meet people's expectaions with things like curtains on beds for an extra bit of privacy, reading lights attached to the wall by each bed, a plug socket for every bed and lockers in all rooms for people to keep their things. Many years ago people never had lap tops, netbooks tablets of one kind or another and mobile phone so people have more things now that Luther like to keep safe and secure close by to them.

Private room could do with a repaint and bathroom needs updating as it was very grubby. Own coffee making facilities which were topped up daily and bed also made daily. Hot breakfast was very poor and it was quite noisy at night. Staff quite friendly.

it was our second stay at the hostel. the location is really good, just a few minutes from the tube station. all in all a nice stay.

The hostel itself is ok but very very basic but kept very clean also. But it is only a stones throw from Hyde park which is a really nice thing but I think that now days all hostels should really should have lockers in the rooms and some kind of furniture for people to put their clothes in and not just a room with a bed and that's all I have to say really.

Mi experiencia no fue del todo agradable, principalmente por el hecho de la falta de internet, fue un error propio no haber leído en detalle, pero a mi favor, que hostel no tiene wifi? Además que el precio para tener el servicio es demasiado, £1 una hora, £5 tres horas. Además, £10 de depósito, £2 para el luggage room, es muy violento para quien viaja a una ciudad que ya de por si es cara que además te hagan cargos extras. El hostel no es feo, bastante normal, el desayuno es bueno.

There was no hot water shower- or very slow. Lockers are patheti- 2 lockers shared between 8 people in a dorm. The beds are filthy. The only i have been w/o free internet access.
