Must say that the staff were lovely and friendly. :) The problem my son and I had was with the rather shabby basement room. There were holes in the wall and ceiling, peeling paint, a window we couldn't open (on a hot night) and a sink and shelf in a sorry state. It was very nice to have usb charging... More

Hi David, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us feedback on your stay. I'm sorry to hear that the room was not up to our usual standard. We are in the process of redecorating and hopefully that has now been resolved. We do understand being in the city on a summers night can get a little... More

Just returned from a two night stay at YHA Earls Court . We arrived late after attending a Hyde Park concert ( we walked, about 25 mins), and the staff member on duty was very helpful and accommodating, making us a tea tray to take to our room. We had a room for 3 people, which was clean, comfortable and... More

YHA Earl's Court is everything a hostel should be. It's in a good location for exploring London: close to Kensington Gardens and the Kensington museums district, and set on two Underground lines (Piccadilly and District), which gives you good access to Heathrow, the City centre, the river side, Wimbledon, and Richmond. Kitchen facilities are really good, the back lounge is... More

Our six bed room will never win an interior design award, but for the money spent and the limited time actually staying there, it was fine. Public areas were nice, staff very friendly and the neighbourhood is quiet, felt safe and is close to public transport. Highly recommended! One drawback: no wi-fi in the room. Stayed there with family AND... More

This youth hostel was great, your usual Yakuts hostel - nothing special. Well positioned for use of the underground. The breakfast was not great, it was continental but it didn't taste excellent. There is a Pret a Manger right next to the underground, that would be s good option for the morning. The beds were comfortable with bathrooms outside the... More

It's not the ideal hostel to stay if you are planning to stay for a week or so. No Wi-Fi in the rooms. we booked a private room but we had to share the bathroom/showers with 4 other rooms. Near to an underground and some fast-food restaurants. I would say it's fine but just for a couple of days not... More

The hostel was better than I expected. Good location and friendly staff. It was in a nice quiet area and it felt safe to be in. I stayed here for 4 nights with my friend and we are both 17 so no worries about letting your under aged children stay here. As a tip, take your own locks with you... More

I was extremely impressed with my stay at Earls Court YHA. Spotlessly clean and amazingly warm, friendly and helpful staff. The area was great and easy to reach tube stations. An M&S food store within 5mins! Was SO impressed. Have told all my friends!

Nice Victorian style house, just 7minutes walk from the station in a lovely neighbourhood. Very clean and tidy. We stayed in a room with six bed, each bed had a light and socket! Excellent experience and good value for the money spent!

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.
