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

Let's start with the positives - the staff were friendly, helpful and energetic, this is definitely a hostel targeted at young backpackers. There's an option to store small valuables at the reception which was great and the location, right next to Hyde Park, was very convenient. Unfortunately there were a lot of negatives too - the rooms were tiny and... More

This hostel is pretty much what you expect out of a hostel. It was clean enough, quiet enough, and the rooms were the right size for 6 beds. Each 6 bed dorm had its own bathroom/shower and there were additional public showers and toilets outside the rooms. The bathroom in my dorm was cleaned daily which was nice. The kitchen... More

I stayed at this hostel for just one night but I'm really happy with the service provided. I stayed in a 6 beds room and it was ok. It was really clean and the sheets were so white that I could hardly believe they have been used before. I've stayed in many hostels before, but unfortunately not all of them... More

As my expenses budget didn't stretch as far as a London city centre hotel I opted to have a look into hostels. I haven't stayed in one since a school trip and was apprehensive about the reviews for most. I booked one of the private en suite rooms and was given 108. This is a very light airy space with...

I only stayed one night and the location of this place is awesome, directly opposite Hyde Park. Visit near Queensway station and the central line on the tube. Good restaurant strip one Street over sage and clean to walk to. The 10 bed dorm I was in was clean and spacious and had a good feel to it. Simple bunks... More

This place looks more like a creche (a lot of teenagers making a lot of noise). You pay just for bed and that's it. Shower dirty and the drain was clogged. For bfast you get only tea, coffee and toast with gem and nutella and is served only for 2 hours from 8 to 10 which is bad if your... 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.
