Stayed here with a group of friends on Nov 2011
Cosy, modern beds and spacious rooms
Nice breakfast with variety
Good price and good wifi signal
Staff is friendly and helpful
Good location close to tube
Location is GREAT, closeby Kensington south metro stop. everything else is quite bad, but what do you expect for that money? If your looking for a hostel with a great location this is where you need to be.
The beds were broken, the room smelled like mold, the TV didn´t work, wifi only worked in the kitchen and in the bottom stairs. No chairs in the room, only beds. Overall trashy. Breakfast was good enough (toast, milk and cornflakes, instant coffee)

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.
