convenient：cycle docking station at the gate，near to the underground station
I stayed here recently for 5 days to kickstart my vacation. This is a pretty nice hostel in th South Kensington area that is close to a couple of metro stations. I stayed in a 12 bed room which was new and well maintained and had 2 full bathrooms (though they are tiny at least there are 2 showers!). The room had stand up lockers that you could store your stuff in which was very nice (bring your own decent sized padlock). They also had small lockers for your most precious items that are right next to the 24 hour reception desk (for a 5 pound DEPOSIT) which I thought was very nice as well. The room was cleaned daily and I always had plenty of hot water (watch out though the faucet handel can be kind of tricky to turn off and on). As far as ambience I would not consider this a party hostel. It has a common area downstairs which is pretty chill and mainly consists of travelers using the free wi-fi. Overall the hostel was great and I found most employees to be curteous and friendly. I gave a four star review because they did however have one female graveyard employee who was very unfriendly and not very helpful overall and that dampered the experience...and in addition the Wi-Fi really only works in the Lobby common area not the whole hostel as advertised. Overall I would stay there again.
The view of the fab Natural History Museum across the street said "London." The bathrooms said "Tokyo." But at least, we had a private bath in our room, which is unusual for hostel-rate lodging. The Meininger was well-located in the Hyde Park area of London, and it was clean and nice. The front desk folks were cordial and helpful, particularly in arranging our cab back to Heathrow. I'd highly recommend this hotel for the traveler who wants a good location and great value.
