  • This place was terrible. It was beyond unclean, it was gross. The toilets did not even have sinks to wash your hands - in some cases you might have to go to a different floor to find a sink. They charge £5 just to use wifi for a few days (NOT FREE)!) They charge if you want to use their lockers. They are unapologetic when any problems occur. Do yourself a favor and stay right down the street on the same block at Sandeman Allen Hostel, which is very clean and much friendlier.

  • From the outside, Hyde Park Hostel looks quite nice. But once you are inside, there is nothing nice about it anymore. The beds (in a Women's-room) were only 1,70 m long, the room dirty. The worst were the toilets. There are only two for the whole floor, and they were always out of paper, clogged, or dirty. The shower fittings fell off, when touched. They don't even have free wi-fi. I don't recommend staying at Hyde Park Hostel, yes, it is cheap and in a nice setting, but it's just not worth it!

  • No, just no, the worst hostel I ever been to, mold and fungi on the walls, unpleasant personel, disgusting bathrooms. Unpleasant atmosphere and really terrible place to stay at. No wifi, every facility costs extra. The only redeeming quality was closeness to city centre. But do yourself a favour and avoid at all costs.

  • Me and 2 friends stayed for 2 nights in a 21 bed mixed room. It was all average, except the bathroom, which was all dirty and pretty disgusting. I think they didn't even clean it. The first day I tried to use the shower but there was no hot water and I couldn't even take a shower. The atmosphere was quite tense, some guys in our room even started fighting one morning. The only good thing was the location. I recommend you to go there only if you're gonna stay for a short period of time.

  • You have to pay for wifi. Breakfadt is very very poor. Kitchen is not workung properly (not enough equipment). Some of the rooms smells, no curtains in some ofthe rooms, I can be better actually if the owners want to make it a better place.
