The location of the Royal Bayswater Hostel is very good, since the city centre is very easily reached either by walking or by bus. It is relatively close and it doesn't take a lot of time to reach the most visited places from the hotel. We had a misunderstanding with the rooms, as we thought we'd booked a separate room for 5 people but instead had a room with 15 other people. Our breakfast was included but we only ate it once since it was only a bowl of cornflakes and toasted bread with jam or butter (and, of course, tea or coffee). We changed to another room for the second day of the stay since we didn't want to stay with strangers, of course for an additional charge. The rooms are very simple, not very cosy, and it's not the best atmosphere to be in, so we would leave early in the morning and come back late in the evening only for sleeping. Overall, this place is perfectly fit people who want to stay somewhere low cost and relatively close to the city centre. For those who want a more comfortable place, then I wouldn't recommend this hostel.

Royal Bayswater Hostel Reviews
The Royal Bayswater Hostel had a very comfortable bed but the toilet was dirty.
For price/quality best hotel in central London. Staff v helpful and I'll be back
I really liked the Royal Bayswater Hostel, but they charged to keep your bags in a locker - regardless of whether you had your own lock. The internet café in the entrance was quite handy and cheap though!
Royal Bayswater Hostel is a good hostel but the WiFi could have been free and the breakfast could have been served a bit later than 9:00.
