Just a few minutes down the road you'll find the Science Museum, Hyde Park and plenty of shopping, including the exclusive Harrods. Once you're done for the day, kick back in the comfy lounge and surf the free WiFi or chill out with friends or fellow travellers at the bar.

    Exactly what I needed as somewhere to crash for the night. Facilities were plenty, if maybe in a bit of an upgrade need (shower rooms) but you could not beat the location. Right next to the museums and 5 min walk to South Kensington Tube (zone 1, Piccadilly, circle and district lines). Massive shout out to the German guy from Hamburg who checked me in and Elvis as well! Credit to the hostel. Would stay again!

    Great location, close to Gloucester Road / South Kensington Underground station and right in front of the natural history museum! I booked a mixed dorm bed, had good roommates fortunately and the room was cleaned every day. Comfortable beds too. Bathrooms are cleaned daily as well. There are a lot of communal spaces around the hostel, however not much spontaneous social interaction as most guests are of the older crowd +/- family groups. Overall no complaints, well worth the price I paid for.

    I've stayed in this hostel many times now and am never disappointed. The central location makes it easy to get everywhere on the circle or district lines. Clean and comfortable. It is thankfully not a party hostel and that makes it even more appealing for my stays.

    Does everything it says on the tin. I found it worked just fine as a base for a week working (professionally) in London - and massively cheaper than any alternative. Great shared areas - big dining room and lounge. Fellow guests in this case very considerate despite some being apparently nocturnal. Access to self service microwave in dining room useful, but thats the only nod to self catering.

    I specifically picked this hostel because it had air conditioning but then was told that because I booked a "basic" room that didn't include A/C. It was on the 6th floor and even with a fan and the windows open it was unbearably hot. The room was very small which would have been fine but it was not clean - there was trash lying around. Bathrooms were medicore in terms of cleanliness. I think the more modern dorms downstairs might have been fine but these top floor rooms were old and icky.

    I am so disappointed. I purchased a room for 6 people and was given one with 8 and one bathroom. I bought this room not only because it had less people it also because it had more bathrooms! When I contacted the front desk they said I was “upgraded” and that I should be thankful I had a better room.... Don’t stay here!!

    Great location except facilities gross showers, tiny rooms, no air conditioning and terrible social vibe - not a place to meet new people but does the job.
