This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It is a cheap oportunity to stay in london - not more. The location is a 5min walk away from the tube, so you can reach everything (but house of parliaments and buckingham palace for example are on the otther side of london). The room and bathroom were clean, but the bed was old and really not comfortable and so was the only shower for the whole hostel. And breakfast was everyday slices of toast with strawberry jam, the cheapest cornflakes and cheese. But you can get wifi for free.
When you just want to have sth cheap for the night, fct is okay, but for a little more you can get probably sth newer and more comfortable.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The team that work here are wonderfully generous, and know how to run this business. The rooms are neat, tidy, and comfortable. This place is fairly central to the city, about 10 minutes walk from the tube station, and then 20 minutes (at worst) to the city. All good, really.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

+: Good transport, Price/value, clean, friendly host
-: very basic facilities(2 Wc, 1 Shower to share) and room
If you are looking for something cheap (compare to prices in London) with close to city center and don't have big expectations, this is a good choice.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Bare bones basic room with a mini-fridge. It was the right price, decent location to the Tube (3 block walk), quiet street, and generally clean. I'd stay there again - but there's nothing special to write home about it. It's a clean room, a bed, a shower, toilet, and basic breakfast in the morning. Friendly hosts.

Pros:

-- Very good travel conditions (close to tube, bus, zone2).
-- Clean room, clean bathroom, clean toilet, fresh towels every day, fresh bed linen every second day.
-- Satisfactory (although not very good) breakfast
-- wifi,
-- very good price.

Cons:

-- Staff's English is surprisingly poor.
-- Very limited use of kitchen (microwave & oven only, you cannot use the stove, staff not very friendly in providing dishes, plates, cutlery).
-- _Very_ old bed with noisy springs.
-- Hot water runs out pretty fast.
-- Shower is in terrible condition -- low pressure, and a bit rusty.
-- Neighbourhood is a bit dodgy -- not really dangerous, but a bit dangerously looking.

Overally, not a bad place. If you want to keep your lodging expenses low, it is not a bad choice at all. Try to sort things out with the staff (especially with the kitchen).
