I've seen some pretty bad reviews for this hostel, but I must say it was one of the nicest ones I've ever been in. The rooms are clean, we had a beautiful full bath, and a fairly spacious room for two people. Couldn't have asked for more in terms of accomedations. The staff were also really wonderful, they even made... More

Smart View Hyde Park Hostel is one of those that you choose when on budget and it ends up being a good decision. It's faboulusly located with Hyde Park being seconds from the place with a 3 min walk to Queensway underground station and a bus stop 1 min away. You've got few restaurants under your nose and a pub... More

I have been coming to Smart Hyde Park View Hostel for 6 years. I have come both with student groups and my family. Never have I or my students been disappointed. Keep in mind this is a hostel, not a five star. However, what is great about this place is everything. Prices moderate, staff great, location great, clean building, and... More

The location is really good - close to Paddington and various tube stops, and of course close to Hyde Park. We shared a 6 person room with a bathroom. The room and bathroom were small but clean and perfectly adequate. Though I did notice that the hand towel hanging up in the bathroom didn't appear to have been washed in... More

I stayed there with a friend after a trip to New York last year. My friend had a flight to catch the following day and I was getting a train back North that day too. We were exhausted with jetlag so after landing in Heathrow, we went straight to this hostel (previously booked). We wanted some privacy and asked for... More

The hostel is at a quite good location in london but the hotel sucks. Its a narrow room with bunk bed on both the sides and very lil passage between them. Its good if u want a roof for few hours. But not advisable for a longer stay, or if u r carrying a lot pf luggage (I didn't think... More

Small hostel in central London. Staff were helpful and we also had breakfast included which we weren't aware of before. The rooms albeit a bit too small were clean and met our expectations. Also, it is a 7min walk to the nearest underground station. With regards to the negatives of this hostel, I would say that these revolve around the... More

We stayed here with a family of 9 adults and children. Was old but clean and reasonably maintained. For the price the facilities were fine and the brekky was a bonus. Staff were very helpful, room service even came late at night to clean old gum we found from previous guests (up high in a bunk so we weren't surprised... More

We stayed here for four days. My partner and I are well travelled but haven't spent any time in hostels. We don't know what to expect. I do expect functioning toilets, and this I did not get. I went toilet one night and it didn't go down. Very awkward and unpleasant for my fellow roommates which by the way were... More
