Good simple accomodation and pleasant staff.

Unique Quality: In the heart of a young, international area full of shops, cafés, restaurants and bars, this hostel buzzes with action. Five minutes’ walk from Earl’s Court and Olympia exhibition centres, it’s also handy for access to Heathrow Airport. Visit the Kensington Museums, including the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum and, after a busy day, relax in the small courtyard garden.

Directions: 38 Bolton Gardens,

I have stayed twice at this place, usually on a weekend when it had been very boring to stay in the business paid star hotels! I enjoyed the common lounge, a 2 day car shared trip a few hundred miles away, the packaged breakfast when you wish to live early. Hostellers and the staff are very friendly, always looking for company and friendship and a good mix of cultures! If you are not an introvert person and are on the lookout for some company and time, do stay here.

Unique Quality: Centrally located, busy with people, friendly staff and clean

Directions: Get down at Earl's court tube station and you can just walk for 5 minutes

After tasting Holland park and some B&B, I was quite disappointed about Earls Court. The breakfasts were horrible and the cafeteria so small that you have to eat fast to let someone else sit after.

Unique Quality: The rooms were smaller, and it has a garden, and these were the only good things about it.

A Decent Place to stay

by written on September 10, 2002

It's not the cheapest play to stay but it was clean and friendly. It was in an area that had a nice atmosphere. I felt comfortable as a lone female traveller. I stayed in a dorm with 7 beds and I understand that most dorms have between 6-10 beds. Gets busy so book ahead. Take a padlock for the lockers and also a torch would be a friendly gesture if you are a party animal - I can tell you from experience that getting woken up at 2.30am by someone needing to put the light on is VERY annoying!

Unique Quality: Usual facilities - kitchen,TV lounge, laundrette, baggage locker etc... 159 Beds available.

Directions: Not far from Earls Court tube station

YHA Earl’s Court Hostel

by written on August 26, 2002

Under 18 £ 16.75
Adult £ 19.00

Unique Quality: I really loved this place. It has a somewhat this-is-my-home-feel to it :)..it is only a few minutes walk from the subway and with the sub perhaps 10-15 min to picadilly square or where you´re headed..it´s close to it..i promise. Ok cooking facillities. really bad breakfast..and expensive..so be prepared for that. but besides that it will propably be the cheapest to find so close to city. less than 20£ a day. cheap in london..believe me!

besides all this, i have to tell you..that of all the interesting things i saw in london the most interesting was in earl´s court!..there´s this graveyard...it´s really bizar, if you ask me. really worth a look.. i will have a picture of it soon on this page.

Earl's Court Youth Hostel.

by written on August 24, 2002

14 Pounds (breakfast included)

Unique Quality: Locate in vibrant Earl's Court area, convenient to city, have 24 hours night bus to/from Leicester Square. Clean. I like the TV / reading area, so big and comfortable that I can chat with backpackers from different places, as well as old Londons who came for TV news in the morning.
