I stayed at Barkston rooms because of the strategic location - near Earl's road and tube station. There are strong points and weak points of this hostel. Strong points: Situated nicely, near the tube and us stop, but off busy roads. Very good mattresses and bed linen, I had a sound sleep, just what you need on a trip. Showers...

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.

“The dorms on hostelbookers are smaller than the dorms on hostelworld so I would advise booking that way, like that you are guaranteed a bed in a smaller dorm.”
