Excellent location, but like with all London houses it has a road adjacent, which unfortunately seemed like the home straight on a multiplayer Need for Speed race. London is as London does! The dorm was typical of an international hostel and for one night it was the best option. Even though the room was full of sleeping people it wasn't... More

The best thing of this hostel is location, Near Hyde Park and QueensGate tube station, restaurants, pubs and shops are near by too. Stayed in 4 bed dorm, average experience, clean enough, toilet and shower in the room, wifi available £1/h is not a great deal... Nice and helpful staff, breakfast very poor but if you remember the price you... More

Price is reasonable. Very close to sites and opposite hide park, plenty of Asian super markets and money exchange one street away. Bunk beds are very old. Wi if Internet is extremely pricey, breakfast is free and unlimited although just cereal and beard. No lockers and rooms way too small for six people. Bathroom per dorm is good.

The hostel was ok, but the room for 8 people was really small. the staff wasn't so receptive and the INTERNET IS NOT FREE, it was expensive, 1 pound to get wifi for 1 hour.... More

Ok I must say I booked this place before reading any of the reviews, so I was a little on edge before booking in. However upon reflection it really is what you pay for. I stayed in a double room with a private en suite with my girlfriend and we were there for two nights which in total came to... More

Rooms were extremely small and beds were not in a good condition. Clean sheets but not so sure about the duvet that was already on the bed and left when someone vacated the room and was not cleaned in between. Bathroom was also dirty and shower did not work well at all- more water sprayed out than came out of... More

Lift doesn't work.. but that's not a big deal Had a Twin RM on top floor (4th) great RM, nice soft beds, flat screen TV,... More

Stayed at the royal bayswater on the 17th sept. I booked a private room en suite through hostel bookers for £40. After reading the reviews and considering the price, I was very pleasantly surprised. The location is excellent and the hostel is very easy to find. Lots of shops and bars in the surrounding area. Reception was efficient and functional.... More

The staff at this hotel are very unhelpful. Upon arrival no bed was assigned to me as the receptionist advised me to "choose a bed which appeared to be free" and if someone happens to return and find me in their bed "they will usually come and speak to reception then we can advise them to choose another bed"... seriously,...

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.
