Liked: You could chose your own bed, although you have to make your own bed. The room was clean also had several power points in the room & loads of toilets & shower rooms. There was a kitchen, with a Microwave, although I didn't use it myself also a room with a large flat screen TV. The building is nice & large so you are not on top of each other.

Disliked: Charged £10 for a entry card deposit but this was not mentioned on the hostel information on Hostel Bookers. This should be done and really gets my back when Hostels do this. I argued to get it reduced to £5. The lady on reception was very rude & unhelpful, also said at the start that they didn't have any booking for me although she did find in the end. £6 for Wifi (5 days) is a rip-off, as was the room to store bags for £2 per day. People also hung around outside the Hostel at night drinking making it look very seedy.

Liked: Definitely its location and proximity to shops, tubes, cafes, airport and Hyde Park. 24 hour hot water for showers :)

Disliked: The staff were rude and unwelcoming. There were no basic facilities to hand in the kitchen i.e. plates or cutlery (additional hassle of hiring these). Expensive baggage storage even for a couple of hours. Showers need updating.

Liked: The location was great. Close to underground, Hyde Park and shops. Also it was cheap.

Disliked: One morning there was no hot water, the towels cost £5 (?!), no WiFi. The thing we disliked the most was that there were a lot of older people and childen even though it said on the page that is was a hostel for people between 18-35. Also some of the people seemed a bit unfriendly.

Liked: the location

Disliked: Everything else... they charge you for everything - the wifi, towels, and anything else you can think of. 20+ people in a room is way too many. Some of the people were scary and threatening other guests. the place was dirty and I couldnt find a sink to save my life. the bathrooms are extremely tiny you better be skinny otherwise youre not getting in. the showers were very cold. This place was a major disappointment for london,

Liked: Location is great. Breakfast is alright (toast, jam, butter, cereals, milk, tea). On the ground floor, the shower rooms and toilets are relatively new.

Disliked: Not all that clean. There was puke and feces in the toilets (this is because of the guests but the hostel's cleaners could clean more often, not just in the mornings). The ventilation system in the shower rooms makes you freeze to death while showering! Sometimes there is no hot water. You have to pay for wi-fi (not that cheap either). You have to pay for almost everything there. You only get one key card per reservation which is inconvenient. It says under important informations that "Hyde Park Hostel" only accepts 18-35 year old travelers and small student groups. That is not true. A lot of the guests were way over 35 (closer to 50!). I believe some were even under 18. Most of the staff is not even polite, the whole atmosphere is weird and not pleasant. In the bigger rooms beds are 3 tier beds (uber weird! -the rooms resemble prison cells). The kitchen is in a dire need of remodeling and refurbishing. You can smell marihuana in front of the hostel. Not to mention all the shady characters who gather there daily. In conclusion: you get what you paid for. Consider other options!! P.S. if for some reason you end up there, use Bayswater tube station. Queensway might be a little bit closer but you'll lose your mind with only one lift in function. Not to mention that all the stores, restaurants, cafes are next to Bayswater station.

Liked: Location so close to Notting hill.

Disliked: It has very little character, too many beds to a room, and while the staff were lovely to me they were downright rude to some of the other customers.

Liked: I did not had a lot to spend, so I wasn't too picky. This was a great solution. It's located near the City and has a lot of travelling options nearby. Take the Boris Bike every day! It's cheap and a great way to get anywhere fast.

Disliked: I did not hate or dislike anything.
