This place is dirty and full of undesirable individuals. Front desk is useless and will do nothing to solve your issues. There are no plates or silverware in the kitchen... Absurd. On my short stay, police was called twice here due to theft reasons. It all started with my bed assignment to a room that was full. Front desk ended...

I like the friendly manager and reception staffs especially Ryad, Ali, Ibrahim, Hassan, significantly the disciplined and polite security, Mustapha whom have taken every effort to ensure our safety that I am loyal to choose the same hotel for over one year every time I hunt for a hotel in London. I feel welcomed and they are like a family...

Headline says everything. I got stolen £50 and when I told the receptionist she didn't care. The toilet were flooding with crap. When I told in the reception, guess what, they didn't care either. Mouse trap with mice in. Not cool. I thought this place is a joke. I visited before and it was bad that time but liveable. Returned...

We had no problems checking in. As we had booked online, we got the basement rooms. It wasn't their best rooms. I'm glad we had the rooms next to each other, which made it easy for us. Average size rooms, with two bunk beds. The sheets and pillow cases were clean. We had a sink and a mirror. There's no...

The location is great and from the outside, the building is nice and so in the neigbourhood. But then, you come in, and there's no lift. Then, no cuttery, no plates, in the self catering kitchens and no plates. This is absurd. Everything is downstairs, for sale or available only for people who have a breakfast voucher. I tried to...

Checking in was a wonderful experience, the staff were super friendly. The location is great, easy to find. The bed was comfy. The dorm room was clean. The bathroom amenities were clean but not super clean. My only complaint would be that the kitchen did not have any thing other than a kettle and a microwave. It would have been...

My friend and I stayed here in early December in a twin room, the room was small but suited what we needed as backpackers (bunk bed and bedside table); the room was situated on the first floor in the main building, which was a plus as there is no lift (as expected) at this hostel. The room was facing the...

It has been a while since I was a typical backpacking traveler. I was stuck in London for a couple extra days and found this place. This was beginning of December, so not to busy. They did give me my own room without anyone in the other 3 beds, so that was nice. Very basic room!! 2 bunks, a sink,...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood 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.
