Me and two of my friends stayed here for a night as part of a weekend away in London (we're students in Bristol). The hostel was cheap, and we weren't expecting much for £20 each. However, the hostel was wonderfully clean and modern, with very comfy beds and incredible heating (it was freezing outside, but lovely and warm inside!). The... More

Ce hostel est un des hostel idéal: malgré le vieillissement des chambres, l'endroit est un lieu chic, ou l'architecture est agrémenté de fleurs, avec des jeux d'ombres et de lumières. Lorsque les beaux jours apparaissent, le jardin ressemblerait presque à un endroit romantique ! Idéalement situé, en plein cœur de Londres, la compagnie YHA, pourrait cependant revoir la réfection des... More

Nice place with a good tube link into the city. We took the private room in the back, a small room but just for sleeping, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was a little aged but did the job with a nice terrace out the back. The staff were fantastic and very helpful offering advice and a wide range of excursions.

Just had one night at the Earl's Court YHA and would have liked to stay longer. Well situated for tubes, but we walked from Victoria which took a bit longer than the 1/2 hour stated on WalkIt, but that was mainly because of the interesting shops and food markets we passed. Lovely room in courtyard, adequate kitchen (which could do... More

Nice place with a good tube link into the city. The room was a pretty standard youth hostel dorm. The kitchen was a little aged but did the job with a nice terrace out the back. The staff were fantastic and very helpful offering advice and a wide range of excursions.

Stayed here in the private rooms downstairs (which isn't the basement....it's the ground floor). The hostel is in a great location...super easy walk to Earls Court tube station. Or there's a bus that stops just around the corner that gets you to or from Victoria train and coach station. Lots of places to grab a beer or groceries etc so... More

another poor excuse for hostel accommodation in London. I stayed in one of the basement rooms. The whole place was smelly and dirty. The weather during the summer was particulary warm and there was no air-conditioning. In addition they had not any extra fans to hand out. When I questioned this - I was told that London doesn't really experience... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel – I’m very sorry that we ran short of fans when you stayed with us last summer. It’s always disappointing when we fall short of our customers’ expectations and we will always try to remedy this at the time so I’m sorry this doesn’t seem to have happened during your... More

Stayed for 6 nights with family over New Year 2014/15. Great location and reception is well managed. Room clean and tidy, showers work well, and both lounges and kitchen are all fine. However our room was next to showers and if we weren't very tired from busy days we would have been woken up by people showering at odd times... More

I stayed there for 8 nights in room 107, room with the bed is clean, but one toilet(combined shower and toilet) is always so wet and dirty due to design failure causing water flowing from shower area to the toilet floor. Location is perfect, as it's not exactly in the city area where the Big Ben is, but still in... More

The hostel is much good in general, only room wasn't like it's showed on the website, because our triple room was too small than we have imagined. Young people at reception were polite and kind, the room and common bathrooms were enough cleaned like free kitchen and other spaces. We also found clean bedclothes without addictional expenses and a little... 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.
