Liked: Didn't like anytging Except the location.

Disliked: The staff members were really rude and gave lots of attitude. The reception lady constantly made me feel stupid with the comments she made at made. JR was nice and helpful but everyone else who works here in the hostel is very rude. I will NEVER recommend this place to anyone

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.

Liked: It's close to everything and really easy to travel from the hostel to places around London. There were warm water and you could lock the door to the showers.

Disliked: Online they are very specific about this being a place for people between the age of 18-35. I'm pretty sure more than half the people I met in the hostel was older than 35. It constantly smelled like someone was smoking in there, and not all the bathrooms were clean or useable.

Liked: Had plenty of showers and toilets and there was a sink in our four bed dorm. Kitchen was clean and people seemed to be friendly. Read a few of the reviews and wandering if these people are backpackers or people expecting B&B's it's a hostel!!

Disliked: Stairs ha was on top floor.

Liked: Nothing at all.

Disliked: AVOID THIS HOSTEL Filthy, gross, dirty, messy bathrooms and bedrooms. No ventilation. No hot showers. Just for plugs for 20 people. Really RUDE, unfriendly and UNHELPFUL staff. The linens and duvets stink, really stink. Bathrooms and showers rooms were GROSS. They try to rip you off all the moment, luggage room is paid, lockers as well, and the most unacceptable: THEY CHARGE FOR WIFI CONNECTION. DON't BOOK THIS HOSTEL, EVEN IF IT IS YOUR LAST OPTION!!!!

Liked: The location.

Disliked: They dont exept credit cards. In front of the reception is a cash mashine which is giving such a bad exchange course. They ask you to take the money for paying just there. We did arrive late and didnt have the energy to go to a bank cashmashine. Now I see we have payed the dobble price.

Liked: It's in a really unbelievably good location and for an early flight at Heathrow it's perfect for a one night stay.

Disliked: Well I mean you get what you pay for: the 24 bed form has 3 bed bunk beds that are quite loud and it's dingy, the bathrooms are also pretty gross.

Liked: We made it out alive with no visible symptoms of any diseases so far and miraculously didn't have anything stolen from us.

Disliked: The building itself comes off as some kind of an abandoned Victorian mental asylum. Everything is filthy and just seems to be rotting away. The toilets are mostly clogged, even though they have about a hundred of them, the showers are equally filthy and separated only by nearly see through curtains. I felt violated. The staff is extremely rude and will basically try and charge you extra for every breath you take. They treat you like a naughty child who should be grateful for them letting you stay at their fantastic hostel. The rooms themselves resemble prison cells, there's hardly any power points to charge your phone, the mattresses are hard and uncomfortable and the bedding is filthy. The street itself seems quite posh but at nighttime it turns really loud and quite scary, loads of weird stuff going on there. In general my stay at this hostel was frankly quite terrifying, the hallways stink of weed in the mornings and there's always dodgy people loitering around drinking and giving you bad looks. Trust me, you can actually find some nice places in London for the same price, even cheaper. For the love of god avoid this place. AVOID AVOID AVOID!!

Liked: it is near to both queenways and bayswater underground station. if you are a solo traveller or a person who need a quick place to stay, you will find it alright but only if you go for 8-beds room or less..

Disliked: the 21-beds room is quite stuffy and smells due to the poor ventilation. the place is lack of charging point. some showers have no hot water service
