Booked for this hotel without knowing anything about it. What a great hotel, beds were soooo comfy, staff polite and rooms clean and up to date. Did not eat here as lots of eateries near by. Was great for Hyde Park and also not far from most places. Excellent stay

This hostel was AMAZING! The atmosphere was great! The location could not be better! There are 2 tube lines very near and they are served by the most important lines in London (Picadilly, Circle and District)! They have special key cards for rooms and entrance, so very safe. Their cinema room is amazing and very confortable! Their staff is AWESOME!... More

I booked this hostel last minute because of the location and price. Upon arrival I was very warmly greeted and was pleased by the positive and happy vibe of the place. Good breakfast (£1 which goes to charity) and lush common room, with fabulous chesterfield style couches, bean bags and piano and mini guitar. My only negative point to say... More

As the title suggests Astor Hyde Hostel is a very nice clean organized hostel. Extremely close to various museums and Hyde Park. About a 10-15 minute walk from Gloucester underground. Staff are friendly and helpful. Dorms and bathrooms are clean and they have a nice lounge and dining areas. Only downside is it's in a posh neighbourhood and therefore will... More

Not as close to the Gloucester Road train station as Meininger but offers more character and bigger bathrooms. I would suggest staying in larger occupancy rooms as they are closer to ground level and offer a balcony which makes them less stuffy.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
