The staff was friendly and the rooms were nice. I definitely loved how private the bunks were. We stayed in a 6 bed female ensuite. The only downside was it was HOT. There was a fan in the room, but it didn't provide much circulation. As soon as I got out of the shower, I felt like I needed to... More

In short - I enjoyed my stay, but it's basic and not for everyone! The hostel is part of a bigger hotel it seem. I LOVED the location: quiet street, near Hyde Park, short walk from Queensway. There was a nice traditional pub next door and nice restaurant and grocers nearby. Great vibe, delightful to hang out outside with a... More

the rooms are not air conditioned whatsoever, are unbearably hot, the bedsheets i paid a ten pound deposit for had blood stains on them, the wifi did not work at all in the room, and there were nine beds absolutely crammed into the (tiny!) room. this hostel is very undignified, i am sure you could find a less soul-sucking place...

SMART Hostel Hyde Park: I stayed one night in August 2016 Rooms:  Hot, noisy room. Triple bunk beds – you need a head for heights if you are in a top level bed…… The wall mounted  fan only served to  circulate the hot air. Due to the heat and noise, I did not sleep well. Adequate shower and single toilet... More

The location is great and only a 5 minutes walk to the nearest underground station, which makes life easier!! The dormitory was clean and cosy with an attached bath, but overall a bit clumsy. The small bar inside the hostel was an added advantage although it was not so cheap! The breakfast was really good!! Overall, it is a great... More

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm in July with 4 teens and 2 adults. The room was on the first floor at the front of the hostel. 2 sets of triple bunks which i thought would be fun for the kids but ended up being the opposite. There is hardly any room between the bunks so you have to get... More

Stayed here for a few nights and even though it was summer this place was ridiculous. The rooms are tiny, and the window in my room only opened about 2inches and was about 55degrees celcius in my room. When people askes for fans they said no, and I ended up moving to new hostel that had portable aircon and a... More

Whilst I wasn't expecting much as it is budget accommodation in London it wasn't amazing. The location was quite good, near to Lancaster Gate tube station which is handy, on the north side of Hyde Park which means you can enjoy a nice walk through the park to get to main streets on the other side. Positives were the price,... More

I stayed here while visiting London for a concert. It was great value and would definitely recommend it to others. Only £20 per night. You can choose the all female or all male room option and its very close to Hyde Park.
