Having only ever seeing a hostel in a horror film I did not have high expectations. Baden powell is modern, clean and comfortable. I cannot fault it at all.

Hotel itself is good as well, basic needs are filled. Beds are comfortable enough. Good trip! Fun history about the hotel, related to the founder of the Scouting groups around the world. Gift shop offers neck slides, patches, t-shirts. Outside is a statue of the...More

To many Scouts and certainly those visiting from abroad, Baden Powell House is seen as the HQ of the Scouts. Yet apart from the statue of BP outside, it is most unwelcoming and shows very little evidence of Scouting. Inside on the floor plan, an...More

As staff said, many people think that it is a museum, the Baden-Powell house is actually conference centre. But you will not be too disappointed since the staff will give you direction to the Baden-Powell museum while you can also buy some interesting merchandise

Good hostel. Rooms were clean and staff were helpful. Food is okay but not a lot of choice. Toilet kept blocking and needed a bigger bin but apart from that it was good

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
