The location of this hostel cannot be beaten. Just a few short blocks from the Oxford Street station and right in the middle of everything. Surprisingly quite as it's located on a side street. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms, showers, and WCs were standard and clean.

The hostel is perfectly located on Oxford Street in the Soho district of London- so you are no further away from most of London's attractions than a 10-15 minute walk or commute by metro. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom facilities are very clean and always available, and you can rent towels for the shower at 2 pounds... More

This hostel is tucked away just behind Oxford Street in central London. Handy for two Tudeley stations, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford circus so accessible to most tourist places in London.

I booked a private double room for GBP59 per night. The building is rather new and the room was OK, but there was a lot of dust on an extra mattress on top of the double-bed. Also common showers tend to get dirty during the day. Maybe they should improve the general cleaning level, considering that now private rooms are... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
