Amazing place! The best valued hostel in London! Great location right near the nottinghill gate tube station, 24 hour security so we felt super safe, wonderful breakfast and dinner (which were free by the way), only downside is there's like no wifi at all.

I lived in this hostel in 2012 during the summer and I repeated it in 2014, being there last time for more than 9 months. I think this hostel is the perfect place to start your adventure in London as you can meet a lot of people and you will never feel alone. You can't compare this hostel to others.... More

I stayed in that hostel for 1 year and a half and in my opinion is the perfect accommodation for students or young professionals. The relation quality-prince is good (knowing that London is an expensive city). It's an affordable place located in the nice are of Notting Hill, the neighborhood is quiet, 5 minutes walking you can find the famous... More

I have problem with the internet connection wich is not available in all rooms. Sanitaries are not very clean and the food is always the... More

Just avoid staying here, it's for you, if you'd wish to study then better to choose students accommodations, this is an hostel , students are friendly and helpful, yet people work there is less helpful , manager is hated by many students as she has a definite horrible character.

I was at Bowden for about 10 months. I pretty much chose this place for the period because of the excellent location. It is a few steps away from Notting Hill Gate which means everything you may need is on the doorstep: Portobello Road market, Kensington Park, Tube, Bus, shops, restaurants, supermarkets, fast foods etc. Rates differ depending on the...

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.
