The overall impression of the hotel is that it's in need of a bit of TLC, but for the price for that location it was perfectly okay. Reasonable price for a great location. If there is room enough you might get the whole room to yourself (my 2 friends and I got a 5 bed room all to ourselves). Clean...

I book a room for the hostel for 6 of us. I was very scared after reading all bad comments. My true is that the hostel is not that bad if you are looking for something cheap and for a short stay. We had some issue with the budgetplaces reservation and they were very kind and helpful. 25 quid/person/night is...

Great location for a great price. Breakfast was includid - there wasnt so much to choose (only toust with marmelade/butter, coffee, hot chocolate and tea), bud you can eat as much as you want. Rooms were nice and clean. So was bedroom. It's visible that the hotel is old and the equipment is old, but it was clean.

Hostel was adequate and clean, although room was rather small. Good position in centre of London though, near museums. Probably therefore good value for money because of it's situation. Staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast was cereal and toast, but that was all we wanted. We stayed here at the end of our holidays (had been elsewhere first) and had heavy...

Superb location (opposite the Natural History Museum, a few minutes walk from the Royal Albert Hall...). Stayed in a 8-bed mixed dorm. Room were basic, but were adequate for what we needed it for. Got a good night's sleep but found some of the bunk beds not particularly robust - I woke the guest on the bottom bunk every time...

The room was badly in need of refurbishment. We could not use the bunk bed at all since it was "shaky" and poorly constructed. The lamp on the table was broken, its lampshade had somehow been burnt. The room "decor" was really depressing. Coziness was missing entirely in the room, and it didn't feel nice to come back to the...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

“Avoid this hostel at all cost”

“remember they do not supply towels”
 of 5 bubbles DuggieMT, 7 Oct 2016 | Read review
“I booked a room for two people and I was placed, without asking, in a room with 3 bunk-beds. I had to sleep on the top bed because it is impossible even to sit at the lower bed. It is neither possible to sit anywhere to dress yourself because you cannot either sit on the lower bed nor on the chair, because there is not a single chair in the room. There are rooms in the basement, but also the room on the groundfloor has a bad view from the window - to the other building next to and a dirty place between the two buildings. The shared toiled is not only to 2 rooms, are it is usually in other hostels, but almost to everybody. On the first floor there is one toilet for 5 rooms! And God knows how many people there are in one room. ”
