Location was fantastic - within easy walking distance of Covent Garden, etc. Ideal place to stay for a night out in London. The room was fine. A nice comfortable bed and sink. I think it was pricey enough for a hostel room to be honest as it was very basic. But then again considering the location it was probably alright...

Stayed here for only one night alone. Was checked in to a room at the top floor with 6 beds total. The room was dirty, poorly ventilated, there was nowhere to hang up coats or put stuff except on your bed. The wall and windows next to my bed however was full of fungus/mould and the place, from the room...

Excellent location, very near Waterloo Bridge, Somerset House, King's College and walking distance toTemple tube. Breakfast was ok with cereals, toasts, fruit juices, coffee and tea. But hostel is in need of refurbishment as it is already old and quite shabby. Shared bathrooms are old and windows can't be shut. Lots of stairs with no lift, so we had to...

Our room for four was 'compact'...two bunk beds. Mattresses were unstained, sheets were crisp. There was a sink in the room but the separate toilet and shower were down the hall. There are six floors and no lift. My friend told me the rooms on the 6th floor have mouse/rat traps. The hostel is very tired. Breakfast was included which...

Single room, Room was very basic, bed comfy, sheets clean Adequate for what I needed. Hostel is well situated on the Strand, with quite a few places to eat for all different budgets, breakfast is basic but you can have as much or as little as you want. Overall not too bad.

It is near Lyceum theater. I was in 3 bed dorm with lady and other guy. I liked it but if you are looking for something very nice you should go somewhere else. Don´t come here and then complain. Stuff is very nice and breakfast is reasonable.

I stayed in the 6 bed dorm on the top floor (a clamber up steep, narrow stairs). Room was basic but clean, bedding provided. Shared toilets and shower on the same floor with constant hot water. Main criticism of the accommodation is that the mattress was very soft and unsupportive. Also, thin walls, so if a bunch of prats in...

What you get is fair for what you pay. I was given a bedsheet on check-in and told to make my own bed, which was a bunk-bed in a 3-person room (shared). There were allegedly two wi-fi networks, though neither of them reached the bedroom (I didn't follow this up as I didn't need wifi). The bed itself was comfortable...

That was my second stay in this hostel. I got room 56 that is a sheard accommodation room with 3 beds. We stayed for 2 nights, everynight we had a different companion. It was a quite room as it is at the back of the building. Breakfast as the last time very good, toast, cereal, tea, coffee, jam and cheese....
