Services and activities
One of the reasons people love Hostel One, is because our staff prepare a delicious FREE dinner each evening! We’ll also take you on daytime activities, and later play drinking games before going out to a pub, bar or club. Our hostel is set in an old 19th-century building, featuring a large new common area, brand new bathrooms, a kitchen & garden area. We officially opened our doors as Hostel One on 23 August 2018, and will continue to make improvements to the hostel for the foreseeable future.
Located in the absolute heart of Notting Hill (surely you’ve seen the film), one of London’s most beautiful neighbourhoods. We are a stone's throw away from many major tourist attractions, such as Portobello Market, Hyde Park & Kensington Palace! Hostel One Notting Hill is themed around famous British bands & music artists, which you’ll notice in our rooms and around the hostel.
