I stayed here for a week with my friends visit in London over Christmas. It's a a wonderfully friendly place at such a good price of the staff so helpful and giving me a map with discounts for London. Will definitely come back next time I'm in London has saved money to spend eating out.

Disgusting 'family room' in a damp smelly basement. 4 different sized single beds, toilet didn't flush, TV was stuck on bbc2 and no remote available, fridge no where near a plug socket, no drink facilities, just awful!!!! Hoping breakfast could start us off for a busy day in London but a dingy room with small tables and nasty plastic chairs...
