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.

    excellent, but expensive. 6th floor rooms need individual lighting and electric plugs. fridges for food would help... better cooking facilities in an ideal world otherwise, perfect...

    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!

    The staff were lovely, great location, and comfy beds. I guess the only downsides are that the 6th floor has 2-3 working showers since they’re all under maintenance, but most importantly (for me) there was only two plugs in the room. No individual sockets, USB ports or anything, and the plugs were far enough away too!

    Overall, a very satisfying experience: location is fantastic, rooms tidy and decent, just as the bathrooms. Personnel efficient and polite. Ideal for travellers who like walking since the Hyde Park is n the doorstep, as well as some important sights such as museums, the Westminster Abey, Buckingham Palace etc. Will be glad to return!

    Meininger London Hyde Park had a welcoming staff whom were knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms were standard/sufficient & cleaned daily. The separate toilets/showers on floor 6 could’ve used a bit more tending to but otherwise this place was perfect for a fun on the go visit to London. Location was great, quick and easy to get around to all neighborhoods and sites. The pub downstairs was a nice place to hang and unwind or plan your day. Overall relaxed, cozy atmosphere I’d definitely come back!

    Amazing location, staff are super friendly. Bar is expensive but that's just London I guess. All the showers and toilets on my floor were out of use and drinking water could have been more readily available.

    This is a pretty average London hostel. I was on level six. The beds don't have charging ports or individual lights, there is NO air conditioning in the room I stayed in, and the showers were tiny - so small you sometimes needed to open the door to bend over. We shared only three showers for the entire floor as the others were out of order. While they cleaned, the carpet is old and dirty and sharing facilities meant they got messy fast. Great location both to tourist sites and to Heathrow

    I arrived with my son age 16 and even with a letter from the main Berlin office that it was ok for him to stay here, they did not allow it. Last minute caused so much difficulty for us to find a place after landing in london from a 18 hr journey!!
