If I had to stay in a hostel in London again, this would be my choice. Its location is nice in a fairly residential area. My room was spotlessly clean and bed was very comfortable with large luggage storage underneath the bed. Decent amount of toilets/showers. Only thing I would say is that the showers were very temperamental, turning off...

I was staying there for 5 nights when i first arrived in the UK. The hostel was clean and tidy but the bathroom and toilet is tiny. I'm a small person, still find it tiny. The location is great, opposite the National History Museum.

Obviously the greatest attributes of this hostel are the price and the location. It is located directly opposite the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, and Victoria Albert Gallery, and only a few tube stops from Big Ben, London Eye etc. The rooms are some of the nicest I have seen, we stayed in a 6 bed dorm which felt more...

Sadly our stay here was spoiled by the cleanliness (or lack of) in the bathrooms occupied by some of our group. Some of our group had gorgeous bathrooms, making this even more infuriating. If this could be sorted and cleanliness more consistent across the hostel, then it would be an ideal place to stay.

We recently stayed here for a friend vacation. We enjoyed the hospitality until the night where the staff suddenly became hostile and snappy. The slightest noise and they were up threatening to kick us out. The manager was very abrupt and aggressive at night but during the day she was kind and gentle. In short, enjoyed the stay, but wouldn't...

It's a really clean, up-market hostel rather than a hotel- but great for groups. We went with 48 teenage boys. Efficiently run; I particularly liked the fact that their staff went round telling kids to be quiet in their rooms! breakfast was basic, including meat and cheese, cereal toast and juice. The dining room can't accommodate a lot of people,...

Really easy to get to from LHR via the tube and easy access to the city & attractions via tube, bus, walk or cycle. Comfortable beds in very clean and well kept rooms. The hostel was very quiet even over New Years Eve. Convenient services offered such as towel, locker & adaptor hire were great.

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.
