After a few crazy, noisy days in Kings Cross, this hostel was a wonderful refuge. Although an older facility, it is located in a beautiful park. It is a 10 minute walk from several Underground stations, and late night access is limited due to the park being closed at 20h30m, but this results in a very peaceful location. Wifi is... More

we were a group of 7 friends in the same reservation. Though the first receptionist didn't like us that much, the rest part of the staff was very nice and helpful. It has clean and comfortable rooms, and decent bathrooms, though it needs maintenance in the bathrooms on the second floor. The kitchen is well organised and has plenty of... More

First of all, I have been at many cheap places but this was the badest I've ever seen. The staff was very unfriendly as our group was told not to speak (just speak, no scram or sth like this) by the reception at daytime. It's a youth hostel and it may get loud, but speaking should not be forbitten. I... More

I came from greater manchester with a group of 17 children. Rooms very basic with triple bunk beds, adequate for what we needed as we were out and about the majority of the 5 day stay. Breakfast was a bargain and fabulous choices available, so would recommend booking on to this we also pre booked packed lunches for each day... More

I was in a 20 bunk room. The triple decker bunk beds look a little alarming but once you're in it feels like your own little private space. The location is lovely and very easy to find. Please do something to cheer the reception staff up! Throw them a party. They were all nice but not exactly happy. It would... More

The Youth Hostel was set in the beautiful Holland Park, South Kensington. The facilities were amazing and the peace and quiet was great. The size of the bedrooms was adequate for the couple of nights I stayed. The food was fantastic and I will definitely stay again!

I stayed here with a school group and I thought that the facilities were perfectly adequate for what we required. The hostel is in a good location and we were able to use public transport to get around the city. We did not encounter any rude or unhelpful staff as other reviewers did. I found Mandy to be friendly and... More

Rooms were clean, bed were comfy and the facilities were more than adequate. I am 184cm and managed to fit easily into my bunk. They do pack people... More

It was a nice experience to stay in a youth hotel located in Holland park where has a beautiful view and lots of cute puppies. Also, the underground is near the holland park and it's not hard to get to other places. High street Kensington station is not far from the museums where only take two stops. However, the facilities... More

I have been to a fair few hostels in my time and this takes the cake for the the worst. Where to start? Firstly the customer service was shocking. Even though we are adults, we were treated like school children, told to shut up in the lobby at 8pm. What do you expect to happen at a youth hostel? It's... More
