Smart Hyde Park Inn Hostel
Ranked #543 of 948 Speciality Lodging in London
Reviewed 21 October 2017 via mobile

Nothing special about this hostel except the price.

Many travelers end up here because of the low cost. But you get what you pay for. Rooms are very small and bathrooms not in great condition.

4 of our friends rented a dorm room, during the middle of our stay they decided to do renovations in the room, we returned from sight seeing to a room covered in saw dust and smelling of paint. All of our bags were open and clothes out (because we assumed we would be the one ones in the room). After being asked to leave our room by the painter we spoke to reception and they said they would tell us if any of stuff was damaged.

Very unimpressed and would not recomend staying here - rather spend the few extra pounds for decent accomodation

It was my first hostel experience, and it was ideal. Beds with individual curtains, lockers directly beneath you, and nice common spaces. The location is great - only a few blocks from the train station, same to Hyde Park. It is in a somewhat pricy area (we're from NYC and kept joking that we were staying in London's Upper East Side), but the rates for the hostel itself are pretty affordable.

I have stayed in various hostels all over Europe and I will say this one’s below average. The rooms are okay, a little small but nothing to be catastrophic about. The bathrooms are very small, I couldn’t spread my arms completely in them (just so you have an idea). The staff could be more helpful and respectful.

However, for the rest, the location’s perfect and the stay was overall okay.

So easy to find - cross the road at Bayswater tube station, pretty much opposite the station is a short road called Inverness Place & at the end (50 yards) is Smart Hyde Park Inn Hostel.

The hostel was Ok, my first experience of a hostel so nothing to compare it with, but for less than £20 in a four bed room (which annoyingly was at the very top of the hotel up about 4 flights of stairs), with breakfast, it wasn't a bad deal at all.

Room Tip: 4 bed dorm is on the top floor

Very good location, staff very poor
Breakfast poor, just I like the location, near underground and different restaurants
There are so much things to do in the area : Hyde park for example.
However, it's just a cheap hostel !
I will go back fir sure just because it's near the tube.
