In the middle of my backpacking trip through the UK and am staying here while in London. So far the service has been good. Beds and facilities are clean and the staff are accommodating. There's free WiFi which is good and very close to the Gloucester Road tube stop, the natural history museum, and Hyde Park. However, if you are... More

The location is absolutely amazing, in one of the best neighborhoods in London, with many options of leisure (such as Hyde Park) and transport within a few minutes walk. The staff is awesome and super friendly, the activities that they organize such as pub crawls and nights out on some clubs are very nice, was a great opportunity to make... More

The staff are very friendly and the rooms were clean with a clean ensuite :) breakfast is only a pound in the morning which is cool. Your standard cereal and toast. Didn't stay there for very long but there wasn't anything wrong with the place really.

The location is perfect for the area is quite at night due to small nightlife scene of south Kensington, yet right next door to Imperial College, The Royal Albert Hall, The National Science Museum, The Natural History Museum and the V&A. There is a very nearby bus stop, which is particular useful if you intend on staying out later than... More

I stayed here in August with a friend in a 5 bed mixed dorm, beds were very comfortable and room were nice and clean. The best part was that the staff were so friendly - they organise an activity every night and make you feel very included. Everyone is open to meeting new people and to have a good time.... More

Stayed in this hostel for 5 nights. Expected it to be supernice according to its rating in many tourist websites, but my expectations were ruined. I cannot say it is a very bad place to stay, no. But definitely it doesn't deserve to be top-rated here. The atmosphere is not nice, i mean yes, there are different events, watching movies... More

Astor Hyde Park Hostel is located in a beautiful part of London. Some restaurants close by were a bit expensive because it was such a nice area but there were still enough budget places around too. Tube stations were within a 10 minute walk so everything was accessible. We had two bunks in a 10 bed dorm and the room... More

Getting to the hostel seems like a trek and a half. Until you realise there are buses that are just a couple of minutes walk that will take you anywhere. The hostel is adjacent to Hyde Park, and in the centre of the city area. The area in itself is safe, high class and lovely to be in. Be prepared... More

I was in London for some research work, and this hostel was just around the corner from one of the archives I needed to visit. I've not stayed in London hostels before, but this one ranks favourably next to ones across the rest of the UK and Europe. I stayed in a six bed en suite room. It is in... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm room. The fan in the room was much appreciated, the staff are friendly, stable wifi, comfortable bed, secure luggage storage, safe location and a good 1 pound breakfast. My partner and I found it a great place to sleep while we explored London and the surrounds.... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood 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.
