Among the facilities at this property are a shared kitchen and luggage storage space, along with free WiFi throughout the property. The property is 5 km from the city centre and 2.1 km from Victoria and Albert Museum. What a cozy hostel. I've been here before and stayed a second time on my return trip to London. Location was excellent, just a few minutes walk, close to Earl's Court tube (easy to get to Heathrow). Various supermarkets and restaurants close by. The hostel had a well equipped kitchen that was clean and inviting. Other guests were so generous and always cooking. Internet was good, room had lockers and an electric safe. Not a party hostel but other guests were social, respectful, and friendly. Bunk beds were sturdy and didn't shake.

Hostel One Notting Hill

Bayswater, London

Hostel One Notting Hill provides accommodation in London near Portobello Road Market and Royal Albert Hall. This is a social party hostel designed for young backpackers and solo travellers. The accommodation offers a 24-hour front desk, free WiFi, and free daily activities and evening events. In less than 1 week, the Hostel became a very special place, and the staff became good friends. The night activities- organized and communicated daily- are great for everyone who wishes to socialize in London, specially solo travelers like myself. Beds are very comfortable and showers always warm (best feeling ever!). The place seems incredibly safe since many people leave their belongings (and even valuables) behind, and in a one week’s stay I never heard of missing property issues
