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.

    Perfect for a cheap stay in the centre of London. Clean, en suite rooms, even those with 10 beds. However, no kitchen, just a microwave to heat. But you can buy breakfast and they make fabulous coffee that costs 2 pounds. Bliss.

    Really great hostel in the heart of the city. No atmosphere/events for solo travellers as it is also a hotel. Would only come in a group

    Nice hostel with great location (right next to at least two underground stations). The staff are friendly and let you leave your luggage with them after the checkout. The room was nice and clean too. The bathroom was a bit too small and some of the facilities weren't working properly but overall the hostel is good!

    Rooms are clean, bathroom is a bit smaller and you can definitely hear peoples business but the pro is you have one in the room. Breakfast is pretty good for its value and location is phenomenal. Wish they had rules on lights, I was woken up constantly by people turning the lights at 1am or turning them off way too late. Doors are heavy and loud when closing them. Laundry was £6.40 and there’s only one machine. Overall great. Drinking water was a plus! Place is safe and has great social spaces

    The best thing about this hostel is perhaps the location as it’s close to some of the best museums the city has to offer and conveniently located between 2 stations of different lines. I have to say this hostel does not offer any social events or gatherings so if you’re looking to be alone and a quiet night sleep this is the place.

    Would have been a fine hostel to stay at but for some reason this hostel attracts the worst roommates I’ve ever experienced. Other than that the location is close to Kensington Gardens, the bathrooms were reasonably clean, and the staff were lovely.

    The atmosphere was friendly and the staff were helpful. The location is pretty good. My bed and the bathroom were clean. But the toilets on the first floor were scruffy - it was the same the following morning, so they hadn’t been cleaned. I couldn’t find any communal showers, so the only shower was the one in the room shared between six and there wasn’t anywhere to dry my hair without waking everyone up. I wouldn’t stay here again because of the lack of facilities.

    I made a reservation for 3 nights and could only stay for 1. I made a refund claim (I paid at the reception not on tbe website) and its been more than a month and I haven't heard from them! They keep on saying "we have passed your message to tbe accounts department". The location is great but everyone can come and go from tbe place without showing ID at reception. Mg niece stayed on the 3rd floor and the shower was awful. 5th floor showers are better.
