We weren't expecting much of this place after reading previous reviews, and we weren't disappointed, although contrary to those previous reviews we were quite happy with the staff who were all polite. The chap at reception was courteous and apologised that our room was at the top, on the fourth floor with no lift. I'm 64 and was knackered by...

There are a great many things to be said about this hostel's shortcomings (I would refer you to the other reviews for an accurate and nearly complete description), but I'd like to take this opportunity to focus on the positives. I've stayed in a number of hostels throughout the UK and the rest of Europe, but certainly not all of...

We staid in a room for two. Clean enough, basin in the room is a positive point. Tiolets not so bad, they cleaned it several times a day, breakfast good enough if you can do with toast, butter, peanut butter, jam, cereals. Kitchen big, clean but not enough dishes - take yours and you will be happy. Nice personnel at...

AVOID THIS PLACE - Honestly I haven’t met anyone happy staying there in this hostel. It’s a filthy place to be around. STUFF – especially at the reception – worst customer services I’ve ever received. Manager it would be better for him to be a security officer instead, very unfriendly blonde gnome. This company is bunch of liars, and its...

On certain hostel websites, West Two gets less than desirable reviews. People complain about the bed linens, the lack of meals served, the noise. I'm a pretty finicky, girly traveller, and this hostel is actually great. Firstly, the location in Hyde Park is superb. You're just about a ten minute walk from two Tube station stops, a 2 minute walk...

We booked this hotel for four nights during the Olympic period and moved into another hotel (unrefunded) after the first night because it was too unbearable. My boyf and I have travelled for months on end though Southeast Asia and Europe and have never come across such dirty, smelly, run down and dysfunctional accommodation. When we arrived at the hostel,...

Where to begin. Possibly the worst week of my life. An interesting experience here at the west two ranging from bed bugs, clogged loos and creeps always waiting to greet you straight out of the shower door. I felt cleaner before I went into the shower and was exposures to that mould driven box, being touched by the shower curtain...

This place is cheap, and if you stay there you will see a lot of London, because you will get out of the place as soon as you wake up and come back very late. The location is excellent. There are two underground stations in just some minutes of walk, there is also several bars, shops and banks, even though...

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood, 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.
