I like the helpful manager besides the reception staffs especially Ryad, Ali, Ibrahim, Hassan including Miss Aminah whom is like a star to them as she is always the only lady among them, but, she is amazing! I remembered when a room mate was sick (fainted), Aminah immediately called the ambulance and handled the situation calmly and efficiently. Mustapha, the...

They were overbooked when we arrived, so our room was already given to someone else. It was around 23h .There were more people in the same situation (we were like 4 groups of people, like around 20 people in the same situation: either no reservation at all because they had a problem with the sistem through booking.com, either they found...

Barkston Rooms is the most horrible hostel I have ever stayed at. We stayed here for a 4 days school trip. When we arrived they didn't have the rooms ready, and we ordered rooms with private bath and toilet, but we didn't get the rooms we payed for. We payed extra for the rooms for the teachers, but instead we...

Worst and most nauseating experience of my life. My friend and I had booked for three nights, we searched for a hotel right after we arrived at Barkston. Rooms smell like mold and puke, toilet was BROWN, and there was no room to move in the rooms. We first asked for a change of room because in the first, the...

Strategic location , located 3 mins from Earl's court. This is the cheapest and super clean hotel you could ever find in London. The staff is super helpful. This hostel is perfect if you are just looking for a place to sleep and if you spend most of your day outside like I do. You can't get any cheapest and...

Barkston Rooms is one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed at. My sisters and I had a private room at the end of the hall right next to the bathroom. There was old moldy carpet in the hallway and our room which made it smell. Our room was on the first floor right next to the road so...

I stayed at this place only for one night after having booked four. It doesn't respect the demo photos. True, the price is low but the place is dirty, old. The curtains torn yellowed with stains. I ran away and I got my money back. I would not recommend to anyone.

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.
