The rooms were awful, too many people packed into one space. I was lucky to be in a room of six as the poor excuse of a shower/toilet (much like a airplane loo) was destroyed after all of us had used it! The beds were horrendous, I had a single bed but wished for a bunk as I could feel every spring digging into me as I slept. The air con was not on and we had to go down at 3am to ask for it. On the first night I cried at the horrendous room but finally managed some sleep when me and my friend slept on the actual duvet and used the towel as a blanket. I had to fold my pillow in half for at least some sort of puffiness, it was practically loo roll stuffed inside a pillow case! The breakfast was OK, although there wasn't a lot of choice. The employees were very rude and grumpy-never again shall I reside there despite the great location.

Stayed here with a group of 29 students aged 14. The hostel/hotel staff are very attentive and speak an array of languages. The entrance is clean and welcoming, and the common areas are well kept, with table games, TV and computer/internet access. There is also a basic bar for residents only serving alcoholic beverages and tea/coffee. The rooms are clean and well maintained with a variety of bed layouts, from twins to dormitories with 10/12 beds. All rooms have a TV. The bathrooms are small to say the least but are more than adequate.
Breakfast is a continental eat as much as you can buffet style, with cereals, breads, cheeses, ham, fresh fruit, yoghurt, fruit juices and tea/coffee.
The Meininger is well located for all of Londons top attractions, right on the door step of the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the V&A Museum, 2 tube stations both within 5 minute walk.
Great value for money, and much more than a hostel, more like a 3/4 star hotel.

I stayed in this hostel after a brilliant experience at Meininger Hotel Downtown Franz in Vienna. It is hard to believe these hostels are in the same business group.

The reception staff were terrible, they were rude, unhelpful and contradicted each other - I was even told off. (It needs to be noted that Rosi was the one exception to the three other reception staff I encountered, Rose was delightful, helpful and engaging every time I dealt with her and nothing was too much of a problem). I was travelling alone and when I met others in my dorm they were discussing how shocked they were with the reception staff.

The room was fine, it had enough space but it lacked the details. The beds (bunks) seemed quite flimsy and were incredibly hard too, owing to very slim mattresses, there were not enough sockets for the six people in the room to charge their phones. There was lockable drawers under each bed.

The real let down was the bathroom. There was an airplane-sized bathroom in a room for six people. It was so small and the shower curtain didn't reach the floor meaning when someone showered the bathroom floor ended up totally wet.

The location is brilliant, so if you're looking for a super basic stay it would be okay.

Dear guest,

We are sorry to hear that your last stay with us wasn’t as good as you’d expected.
Meininger Franz in Vienna is one of our newest and most beautiful hotels and over the next years we in London will do refurbishments to meet this standard as well.
We are always aiming for perfect customer service so your feedback will help us to improve.
We do hope we can welcome you again at Meininger either in Lodnon or one of our other top locations all over Europe.

Regards,

Your Meininger Team.
