The location was great - 10 minute walk to the metro, a few minute walk to the closest bus stations, right near Kensington Palace and other great must-sees in the area. There were multiple lounge areas, a dining hall, and a kitchen. It still felt nice and quiet and cozy in these public areas. There were also lots of activities going on: game nights, movie nights, etc.
We were on the fourth floor with no elevator! Pack lightly. ;) The rooms were a bit dusty--the fans had huge clumps of dust and the curtains were grey with dust at the ends. Also, pack your own toiletries (like shampoo/conditioner--though there is soap in the bathroom).
The hostel is near Hyde Park, metro is 10 minutes walking, supermarket, restaurant, fast food and shops almost everywhere! Go visit Victoria and Albert Museum, is just 5 minutes from the Hostel! Staff super friendly, they helped us a lot with a map and indication to reach airport and attraction!
The bathroom is not very equiped, there's the wc, a sink and the shower, not even a small table to put stuff on when the floor is wet, I had to leave everything hanged on the door or on the closed wc.
Rooms a bit smaller. Beds are comfortable. Nice place
Claims the stairs as it has 6 floors .
nice communal feel around the kitchen/diner; comfy lounge; vegan dinner appreciated
In general a great place to stay! To room and bathroom were really good and clean. The location is probably the best thing about this experience. They offer free vegan dinners most of the nights, which is not only kind but thoughtfull and progressist.
Most of the staff was really helpfull, unfortunatelly the manager of the staff crew was rude and unpolite. She would be very rude to new staff in front of us and even interrupt conversations we were having with the staff without any respect for us or the new staff members as human beings. I notest she would treat better native english speakers which made my stay a lot more uncomfortable.
