This has been the best hostel I've ever stayed at. It is in an excellent location in Kensington, which made me feel very safe at night. The hostel is only around the corner from the V&A Museum, The Natural Museum, Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park. The nearest tube station is Gloucester, I have read reviews where people are not happy with how far away it is, but I didn't find it too far. 10mins walk. At the station there is a Waitrose, Tescos Express, Boots, KFC and more restaurants, so it was great I didn't have to worry about looking for great places to eat at reasonable prices.
The staff are very friendly, will answer any questions you have. Service with a smile....always, friendly bunch of people.
Under the bunk-beds are 'cages' where you can put your clothes and bags. At reception they sell really good quality locks for £5. I was lucky that I stayed in the first floor. There is no elevator but I guess that it is due to the building being old and stylish, like that of the rest of Kensington.
Breakfast is cereal, milk, toast. But there is a kitchen where you can keep your own food in cupboards and fridge.
I stayed there for two nights, will be going back there to stay again next time I'm in London. £35 for two night... BARGAIN!
