Hostelworld says

The Meininger's Hyde Park's biggest selling point is definitely its location. It's set in the beautiful borough of Kensington and is directly opposite the world famous Natural History Museum. 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.

    For our first hostel experience, the room was very clean and and comfortable. The bathrooms are easily accesible and clean. The staff was very friendly as well. The only thing you have to keep in mind is who you will be sharing the room with.. this guy kept coughing all night and one lady kept talking to herself before she fell asleep, worse combination fo disrupt ones sleep, but overall I’d def stay there again.

    The staff were wonderful and very helpful and the downside of the stay is more due to the other people staying in the hostel and their inability to tidy up after themselves. The staff were quick to help with any concerns we had. However, unventilated bathrooms and messy people made the experience unpleasant as some had been smoking in the shower and shaving straight onto the floor without any regard for others.

    The hostel was very nice with a really friendly staff. Rooms were nice and clean and the beds were ok. The only thing that could use improvement is the bathroom in the dorm room. That's really small and feels "wobbly".

    I had a pleasant stay at Meininger. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable, although I’d wished for some reading lights and power outlets by the bed. I stayed on the sixth floor and the WiFi didn’t work in all the rooms (I stayed in two different rooms) which was a disappointment. The communal toilets and shower rooms on the sixth floor could have been cleaned more frequently. The receptionists were cooperative and friendly. I would stay again.

    Not a nice place. Bathrooms were unclean, rooms were mouldy and cramped, too hot and some of the staff were not that helpful. Overpriced for what you get. No cooking facilities or fridge to my knowledge, no atmosphere at all. Close enough to underground stations but the area itself has no soul, just like the hostel has no soul. Would not recommend
