This is a good Youth Hostel on a reasonably quiet street, and with recently refurbished facilities. It has a members' kitchen where I cooked my own meals. I was in a 6-bed dormitory room - the bed was comfortable and the socket next to it even had USB ports for phone charging. There was a toilet and shower in the...

This stay was awful. The manager did not take my concerns seriously. The staff was even patronising. Horrible service, no consistency and treat customers in a biased way. Housekeeping was rude and even harassing/intrusive at times. When I told the manager the room hadn't been cleaned she did nothing. She was committed to arguing every legitimate complaint I had. I...

The hostel is in a quiet neighborhood. Stayed in room 201. Room was clean and tidy. The common toilet is well kept and surprisingly clean for a hostel. The personal locker given is big enough to keep a cabin size luggage. Lounge is cosy and the staff are helpful too. More hooks in the dorm will be helpful.

The family room was good (although extremely warm), and we were nicely surprised by the cleanliness of the toilets and shower facilities! And the venue was in really good condition. Staff was nice and accommodating. The location is brilliant! Strongly recommended!

Warm friendly welcome and engaging staff! Discovered the back lounge on my final morning and preferred this to the front one. Location and Value for Money cannot be faulted. You get what you pay for with the YHA and don't have unrealistic expectations. Remember what you could be paying elsewhere and be grateful for this charity.

Hostel staff very welcoming and understanding of a large group of 14-15 year old students and clear instructions were given and guidelines were clear. Rooms spacious and ideal for groups of students, staff were located near to student rooms which was ideal. Breakfast served...

I booked YHA Earls Court as I've recently stayed at YHA Manchester, and was so impressed with the facilities that I decided to stay with them in London. First of all, the location is fantastic, for me at least - it's not quite in the very middle of the city, and is on a quiet, mainly residential street off Earls...

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.
