The hotel staff were wonderful. Very helpful and polite. When we arrived the lift was not working but it was fixed the next day. The rooms were comfortable but very cold. I was not happy to see hand stains on the walls :/ The couch was also dirty. I liked the beds and had a great sleep while there. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights (not consecutive). Booked the same dorm room each time and was given 2 very different standards of room. One 12 person dorm was spacious, clean, looked to be newly renovated with 2 brand new clean ensuite bathrooms. Each bunk had its own light and outlet. I was very pleased and wanted to extend my stay.... More

I like to stay here when visiting London because of its convenience and location. It has always been good except for this last time. I spent 6 nights and everyone was friendly and helpful, but the last day after having checked out I returned for my bag and wanted to check/send some emails and make bookings for my next destination...

Hostel is very close to the Victoria and Albert Museum as well as two tube stations. It's quite nice as it accommodates families, backpackers, and couples under one roof. I just wish dorms had a little more privacy between beds. Other than that I do believe is a great find in the middle of Kensington and Chelsea.

I stayed in an 8 bed female dorm. The room was too small for this many people but each bed had its own lamp and electrical outlet, which is a plus. The staff downstairs were helpful, but the bathroom should have been cleaned more often, we were always running out of toilet paper and needing to ask for more. If... More

Excellent location, clean rooms with modern bathrooms. Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park is minutes walk away, brilliant if you need to stay somewhere after a gig.

The pictures are far from the actual thing. Mixed dorms? Seriously? The place needs an overhaul on the cleaning and housekeeping department.

most of the accomodation is ok, but small, it is the location, that sells it. The old purple rooms are dated with caravan type showers. Most are clean and tidy. Some guests have inconsiderate noise concerns when they arrive at 2 or 3 in the morning, sharing beds and assuming they are in a private room, so waking others. Unfortunately... More

I stayed a couple of days in a 6 people dormitory while I was house hunting. I'm not a hostel guy at all but I can say that this place is not the creepy and dirty hostel that one would pay for a cheap staying in London. Rooms are very clean. In my case bathroom was en suite. Bed not... More

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.
