I spent five days in the hostel and, generally, I am satysfied. I stayed in a rooms for six people with a bathroom (shower and a sink). Toilet was outside. Breakafst was included in pricea nd consisted with coffee or tea, a roll, jam, cornflakes and milk. It was not a problem to take more rolls or jams... You need to give key deposit at the reception (10 phounds).
The Leinster Inn is a hostel located about a 5 min. walk to Notting Hill and Kensington Gardens and the Bayswater tube stop. I stayed here for 1 night. It was extremely crowded and didn't enjoy it too much.
Unique Quality: If you don't get a room with a shower en suite, it will seem like there are no bathrooms and showers available in the morning. It is only a couple pounds more and it will be worth it because there are barely any showers available to begin with.
Breakfast is served with your stay. The reception is open 24 hours so there is no curfew. Linens are provided but towels are not.
There are a few restaurants and cafes down the block.
Directions: From Bayswater tube stop - walk down Moscow Rd. Go right on Ilchester. Walk a few short blocks and you will run into Leinster Square.
Does anyone know how the Astor Leinster Inn Hostel is? First time I'm going to London and a little nervous about the safety and cleanliness!
Any recommendations on a good place to stay in London. I'm open to single en-suite acco - cheap ofcourse! Which is a good area to stay in London? How about Victoria?
Take a quick look at VT member Yooperprof's London page: Accommodations. He has a listing for a clean and quiet hostel near the British Museum. Or, just cruise through the VT Travel Guide to London pages, under the heading Accommodations for other suggestions. Good luck!
