Travelled by myself and shared a room with 5 other people. We were all travelling by ourselves and people came and went so it was good for socialising. Breakfast is free and available 8-10. It was fairly alright, nothing special. Just bread, cereal and coffee. The kitchen is good and cleaned and you can properly make a proper meal although... More

This hostel is in a very good location, which almost justifies it's expensive price. I stayed in a private room here, and I found it OK. If I did not stay in a private room, I would not have been happy. The rest of the hostel is a bit dirty and there are not that many common areas so I... More

The hostel was located very strategically between Queensway and Bayswater station. The toilet and rooms were quite clean with sufficient hangers in the toilet. In terms of the room itself though, we felt that the floors creaked too much from people's footsteps above. The beds also squeaked a lot every time someone turned their body. We also had to climb...

Booked for 3 nights at the beginning of june, we were sleeping in a 12 people room. What's positive : excellent location, with the tube near by. Nice staff, nice breakfast and quite clean everywhere. What could be better : WiFi connexion (low and slow...) and number of bathrooms (like in all hostels actually). Having a proper bigger lounge to... More

I booked 3 for a room of 8 but we ended up split up. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal but I was paying twice as much for this place as I had for another hostel where we were in a room of 15 and assigned adjacent beds. Instead I was on the top floor and they were on... More

Room without any comfort : no coat rack, no closet, no armoire, not even a coat-hanger. The bathroom smelled bad, the toilet bowl was dirty ; shower without door, no bath mat, clogged sink. A party has held on the kitchen late into night, just below our room. Loud music was played and people was very noisy, despite our requests.... More

Finding good hostels in London can be difficult so I would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a good place to stay. I will be staying here again in the future. Clean rooms and bathrooms, friendly staff, good amenities (breakfast, wifi, bedding was all great). The location is obviously the best part about this place as not many people... More

I stayed here for 7 nights, I've never stayed in another hostel to compare it to but it was a nice place to stay, I stayed in room 113 and although there was several flights of stairs to get to it, the room was a nice 4 person room with ensuite shower and toilet and a bonus for me was... More

Its my first time staying at a hostel and I think its not too bad. Good things are that the staffs are really friendly, especially the moustache guy. They serve free breakfast starting from 8am. Location is lovely. Nearby Queensway and Bayswater Stations. 3 minutes walk to enter Kensington Gardens. A lot of Halal food nearby, about 5 minutes walk.... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
