We're located in the heart of South Kensington, directly opposite the Natural History Museum.

Our top position makes us the ideal starting point for exploring the city. The Science Museum, Hyde Park and the famous department store Harrods are just a few minutes' walk away. If you want to go further afield, South Kensington and Gloucester Road tube stations are close by, giving you fast, comfortable, direct connections to attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Notting Hill or Covent Garden.

We have masses of British charm, as our hostel is in the historic Baden Powell House, named after the founder of the Scouting Movement. After a tiring day's sightseeing you can put your feet up in our spacious, comfortable lobby, surf the internet or go to the bar and chat with other guests from all over the world. Here we can offer you cider and small snacks such as sandwiches, muffins and cookies, just what's needed to set you up for your next round of activities.

You can sleep in single, double, shared or dormitory accommodation. All rooms have a private bathroom with shower and toilet, and all rooms except the dormitories have a TV. You can leave your bedding at home as we include it in the price.

Our free services and offers include lockers at the reception and dormitories, bedding, towels (except in the dorms), maps, hair dryers (just ask at reception!) and use of our luggage storage, even after check-out.

We also have an all-you-can-eat-and-drink breakfast buffet for £5.90.

There's call points for telephone calls as well as Internet terminals and WLAN in the rooms for a small fee. Towels can be rented for £1. For those with cars, we have underground parking.

Our young and multilingual team is there for you 24 hours a day with help and advice. We have tickets for city tours, musicals and other attractions as well as public transport.

Under such circumstances, there is really nothing stopping you from having an unforgettable stay!

Please note that you must be 18 or over to stay in a dormitory.
