Staff was rude. Music in the kitchen was so loud that I couldn't even speak like in a club. Morever they were shouting till late. I asked the staff to put the volume a bit down and they ignored me. It's funny because one of the rules written in the kitchen wall says "be mindful of noise"

A beautiful old building converted into a hostel, what more could you want? The staff are super friendly and laid back, and some are happy to chat over breakfast which was a nice change from most hostels. There was definitely more of a family feel here. We stayed in a 4 person room and it was pretty cosy, with not...

Stayed there for a day. Hygiene was not at it's best (both room and toilet). Location is convenient, close to the tube. The staff is very polite and helpful, which somehow makes up for the average cleanliness in the hostel. If there's no other option for a budget stay, Gallery Hyde Park is ok.

This hostel was in a beautiful neighbourhood, in a gorgeous old townhouse style building. The inside however is quite run down and dirty. Had a room at the very top of all sets of stairs (maybe 6 flights) which was fine because it was private and we only had a back pack each. Very close to 2 underground stations and...

+great location, very close to the subway(both queensway and bayswater). Staff tried to help with everything we asked. Quite quiet considering we were 24 people staying in our dorm. Dorms felt clean. Beautiful stairs!! -maybe in need for some more bathrooms, and Sunday night/Monday morning it was clear that the bathrooms was in need of cleaning.

I visited Gallery hostel in October. The building had an amazing period charm with brilliant chandeliers and detailing. The room and facilities were very clean and comfortable and the kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The best part by far was the amazing location, it was so simple getting around London and so close to all of the major attractions....

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
