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.

    Meininger Hotel in London is a great choice. Not only the location is amazing, but staff are always willing to help. The building is a great space, with great lobby cafe area and an amazing large area for the breakfast or anything you need anytime. Very well insulated, rooms really clean and welcoming. Thank you.

    Second time staying at the hostel. Rooms are clean and nice. Breakfast maybe a bit overpriced for what it is. Location is close to two underground stations that take you easily to where you want to go. Good neighbourhood and has restaurants nearby as well for a quick bite. The staff was very nice and helpful with whatever needed. Met great people through the hostel. Don't really have anything negative about my experiences so will most likely stay there the next time I'm in London

    This was a great hostel experience!! The staff were helpful, the bed was clean and comfortable, and it was in a great location!! One downside was the very small bathroom in our room, and the poor water pressure of the shower, but other than that it was a great stay!

    I was greeted with a nice welcome and offered to put my luggage in the room until check-in time. Everything went smoothly but the only thing I was not given was the facilities offered. I was not aware of breakfast until I left. Location is marvellous with nice places to eat around and two underground stations nearby which serve the night service. The rooms were a bit small and lacked a spacious room in order to handle our stuff and luggage. I am content with the hostel and would come back.

    To start off, my room did not look like the pictures so don't be surprised if that happens. The room was clean and the bathrooms were clean. The room was pretty small though. There are enough shower and bathrooms for the floor. Really good location. The tube station is a 4 minute walk and as a female traveler I felt safe walking back in the dark alone. The place itself isn't anything fancy but the price isn't too bad for London. Would I stay there again? Yes.

    Good location depending on your preference in London (it's huge afterall) Staff were lovely and friendly, entry after 10pm is restricted. Security with key cards, although mine became demagnitised and Iocked out Dunno about kitchen? Not mentioned directly. Beds were comfy, however doors are heavy and noisy, and there are no bedside sockets, lamps or little wall shelf -charging phones is an issue. Showers, toliet and hall in general looks a bit grubby and outdated. Okay stay for one night.

    We were not placed in the room that we had booked originally. This hostel has no age restrictions, so our bunk room had older people in it. The door to our room slammed so loudly that it shook my bed. Someone had snored so loudly that he woke the entire room up at one point. The bathroom was small and disgusting, there was pubic hair everywhere and it smelled bad. My locker under my bunk did not lock properly and someone could have stolen something from it, even with the padlock on it.
