Five ships of the Royal Navy have been named HMS Hindustan or Hindostan, after the old name for the Indian subcontinent:

Hindostan is now the name traditionally given to the static training ship permanently moored at the Britannia Royal Naval College, although the ship is not in commission and thus not prefixed as HMS. The current Hindostan was previously HMS Cromer, a Sandown-class minehunter that became the static training ship in 2002.
