This housing facility for students also provides accommodation for anyone during the summer when students are on vacation. This may consist of beds in common dormitories or single or double rooms, as well as a few small flats for couples. I wish to point out from the beginning that the single en-suite room that I received was not in the...

I loved staying here. It's right across the street from a tube station and Regent's park. I really liked the feeling of everything here. During my stay, however, I think there was some construction outside our window each morning at about 7am or so which was annoying. Other than that, absolutely great.

The surrounding is very inviting considering the location. Upper floor have a nice view either on Regents Park (north) or Marylebone. The canteen and bar is located at...

I lived here for a whole year starting from September 2013. I hate to be a complaining customer, and I avoid that at all costs after working for a year in a restaurant... But there are so many things wrong about this place, it needs to be written down here. First: ISH is a total rip-off - this money-driven little...

We travelled to London during Easter holiday and thought it might be cheaper to stay on student hostel. We decided to try ISH since the YHA on oxford street is full. On arrival, we were told that we only booked 1 bed instead of a room. The website was confusing since we put in 2 travellers so it should have...

Great location that allows one to get all over london quickly. Felt secure. Renovated bar and lobby. Nice to be around so many international students. Be sure to stroll through regents park and see the rose garden.
