Liked: The hostel was cheap and did have good wifi which is unfortunately used to find different accommodation to stay in after staying there for one night.

Disliked: The room was dirty, dingy and smelt. We stayed one night and after receiving no sleep and actually feeling in danger, we decided to book somewhere else for our next stay. We weren't given our money back but the cost was so low that we didn't really mind. The breakfast that is included is just cheap white bread toast or cornflakes.We were a group of girls who had arranged with a member of their staff that we would be in the same room however one member of our party was put into a large dorm on their own.The shared bathroom facilities were filthy and although there was a chart on the wall to show that they had been checked throughout the day, they had still not been cleaned.I really would not stay here again. Although on the rules they say it is "quiet time" between 11pm and 7 am, this is not enforced and the room was very very noisy. We obviously didn't expect a 5 star hotel and had reasonable expectations but sadly Hyde Park Inn didn't mean these and I would implore anyone not to stay there.

Liked: The place is cheap and has good wifi but only in lobby. Some staff were friendly but not all.

Disliked: I thoroughly hated my stay and after one night, although having paid and booked two nights, I swiftly booked somewhere else to stay.The rooms are disgusting as well as the bathrooms facilities. The breakfast is cheap white bread or cornflakes.Having booked this cheap hostel, I of course didn't expect that much but it really was awful and I would not recommend it at all.Some staff were friendly and helpful but others were very rude. My friend asked if she could get her suitcase from the "luggage room" which the employee didn't understand, so she then said "luggage storage" to which he also didn't understand. He was rather aggressive and I would've thought both places she had said would be pretty self explanatory...

Liked: The location was good. Bayswater station is only 2 minutes away.

Disliked: I stayed in a 20 bed dorm. There was no window, it was stuffy, smelly and dark.Although I booked a room together with my friends, we were put into different dorms. My friends also had some dirt on her mattress.

Liked: Good location not far from Oxford Street. Bayswater itself is worth a look. Like the curtains across the bunks, but lights in there to read by would be a good idea.

Disliked: Pretty basic facilities, but you get what you pay for.

Liked: The hostel has an okay location and a basic hostel breakfast is included in the price.

Disliked: I found the hostel a bit cramped and even the beds were too short for me. For safety reasons I prefer lockers where I can use my own padlock.
