This hostel is in a lovely location not far from a nearby tube station. I only stayed one night, so can't really comment on much else. But if you're looking for somewhere cheap and central for a short stay I would recommend this hostel.

I loved staying here! I think I got a private twin room - which meant I had a bunk bed with USB ports built into the frame (clever!) and it came with doonas and pillows. I hired a fluffy towel from them and I can't remember what I paid but I got a few pounds back as bond which was...

My wife and I decided to surprise our beautiful 11yr old boy Glenda for his birthday by taking him to London for a week. We had booked tickets for Matilda the musical, Lion King musical, Harry Potter Studios and much more.

Hi Thank you for providing us with feedback about your stay. I'm so sorry to hear that your stay was not up to the usual high standards that YHA delivers. We do have a variety of rooms but unfortunately we have minimal en-suites which tend to be reserved many many months in advance. I can only apologise if you had...

Really great hostel. Especially (as was in my case) if you require a no thrills, but clean and comfortable bed for the night after a gig. Some confusion on booking as reservations for groups over a certain amount need to go through a separate process. Booked through booking.com originally which made no mention of this at the time unfortunately. (Suggest...

A very interesting experience! Never stayed in hostels. Very cute, very comfortable, and interesting. A lot of interesting people of different ages. But it was not comfortable. More like a flophouse.

If you're easygoing about strangers for roommates and not terribly picky, this place is perfect, especially for those on a student budget. I went with one friend and stayed in an female 6-bed shared room.

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.
