located in a park
feel unsafe at night
They needed me to change rooms during the day, when I was not there and all my things were in a cabinet, in the other room. Instead of waiting me to come back, they just broke my padlock and took all my stuff out, without talking to me. I think that was so intrusive and rude, and I felt really bad about that.
The entrance was very difficult to find out after the Holland Park closes... although they put a short guide about the direction on their homepage, I hope they will prepare the guide with pictures.
not clean enough, i do not know why i got bed bugs..
Comfy beds, large lockers, cosy duvets, comfortable beds, layered bed layout to ensure privacy, budget price, single sex dorms with a wide range of ages (I am 50 but didn't feel out of place like at other hostels!), friendly people....pity it's closing, having just discovered this gem!
Quite a long walk with heavy luggage, until receptionist mentioned a shortcut via Campden Hill Road & Duchess of Bedford's Walk - frightening for a sole female to approach hostel in dark and difficult to find entrance (others shared same problem!) You need to be aware there are separate entrances outside Holland park opening hours - the park closes at 7pm - after this time entry to the hostel is via the back entrance (and not too easy to locate in the dark!)
Location and the atmosphere is good with the birds and the park around.
3 storey bunk beds, not easy to get up or down. Also the rooms are huge, and only 1-2 socket to charge for everyone. Staff was not very helpful or efficient during check-in.
Nice hostel in an old charming building with excellent surroundings.
Staff are a bit grumpy.
Close to Notting hill. You can get to center of carneval by walk in ten minutes. Good a quiet location in the park. Friendly staff.
Met interesting fellow travellers
Snorers, but can't blame YHA for that.
Piece, which is very important to me while writing. Surroundings, where I could relax and read a book or just take a walk with music on my ears. Guests - many of them were very interesting people who are able to speak about something more instead of politics, money or other not interesting things from TV.
Not enough sockets to charge phone or mp3 player, but it's not that much important if You like to take a seat in lobby, on laundry room to manage some electricity...
Great value breakfast
Staff were a bit vague with tourist type information, perhaps it was a language barrier. No shelve or dry area in showers. Room got a bit stuffy, with guys closing windows at night.
price staff are quite friendly
location is poor after park closed room is too noisy
Hope it does not close down
The location, right next to the beautiful Holland Park and bustling Kensington High Street, is superb. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nice, Tudor architecture.
The inconsiderate and noisy men who decided to keep entering and leaving the dormitory from 2am until 4.30am, switching the lights on and slamming the door every time! If you want a good night's sleep, don't stay in the dormitory!
location, greenery, staff
beds, lockers, toilets too far, noisy school groups
The staff were really friendly and welcoming and the place in general was very relaxed and accommodating for a youth hostel. The location is very pretty and quiet too.
The shared rooms. I know this is what youth hostels are all about, but I couldn't handle the snoring of the other guests! So didn't have the best sleep overall.
All fine, wonderful hostel - one of the best I've stayed in for location, character, friendliness of staff.
I always find it a rather noisy hostel - doors bang too loudly in the rooms and people are always noisy in the evenings yet the staff seem to do little to nothing about it.
Clean sleeping conditions, bunks and shower areas all nice and clean and self catering kitchen. Staff were polite and pleasant. I like the feeling of security and privacy in female side, and I have found in YHA hostels the guests are quiet and considerate in the dorms.
Arriving at 22.00,was dark in Holland Park, i am lone female and walked lots before strangers helped me, and returning to locked gate we after time discovered intercom at gate for use to enter. I felt better signs or information would help
no free wifi~~
Nice to be in a park. Close to underground and a supermarket. Reasonable breakfast.
Bunks somewhat awkward to get in and out of.
for a few nights it is a good accommodation.
it was a bit difficult to get to the hostel especially when it is dark and you are alone.
location is nice if you just want to walk and enjoy surrounding. However it is near the tube it might be not easy to find a way at the night. Hostel is clean and staff is helpful!
Holland Park area of London is wonderful, near to Kensington Palace, V & A Museum, Hyde Park etc.
I understand they are losing their lease, they have been here since 1955 but are closing this location at the end of 2014. Too bad, great location!
Staff were friendly, bedding was actual bedding and felt fresh and clean.
Dangerous to walk on your own after dark as it's somewhat inside a park, consecutively rather hard to find. The room had 12 beds, three piled on top of each other, with no ladders to get onto the top bunks, so you had to step onto neighbour's shelves. No curtains on beds and incredibly big and bright reading lights, making it very hard to sleep one people had them on (which was all the time). Two sockets for 12 people in the room. The sinks in the rooms and in the bathroom had such ridiculous nozzles that you got splashed all over the place after barely turning the tap on. There were two toilets on the floor for 24 people. It took at least five minutes for the water to warm up in the showers - what a waste of water! No free wifi and the internet you could buy way too expensive (1 pound for 20 minutes with no ability to save your unused minutes for a later time if you've gone over 10 minutes), filthy computer keyboards. In conclusion, while the price was acceptable, I would not stay here again given the chance and would not recommend it.
