This was by far the best hostel I stayed in while in London. In fact, I've stayed here 3 times now.
The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms clean, the breakfasts plentiful and the wi-fi always in working order.
The location is the best thing of all. It's just a short stroll to the left to get to the museum quarter, with the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum being highlights for me. Turn right, and in all of 2 minutes you're in Hyde Park.
There's a tube station a 10 minute amble away, and 2 bus stops just around the corner, which provide a service late into the night straight to or from many of West End's theatres.
Best of all, Kensington just feels safe. So if you're travelling alone (I was), and walking around here late at night in the dark, you don't feel as though you constantly have to look over your shoulder or into dark alleys. It's just a great area, and the people at the hostel are so friendly that you're bound to find some buddies to hang out with!
