This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Overall, not bad as those comments. I have stayed at a 24 mixed room. I agree that the temperature inside the room is too high as the room was fullfill of people and the bed was a little bit too small.

The reasons why I choosen this hostel is the location and price. It is very close to The British Museum and the underground station; For 1 night, the price is totally valuable, less than 10 per night. But i won't suggest you stay over 4 days!!!

However, because every facilities are externally charged, Locker( 1.50 per night), pool table ( 50p per play), even computers ( 50p per 15 mins)< (same price as using computers in the airport =.="), that why the cost of the room is so cheap.

In terms of cleanliness, do not expext anything as there are too many rooms and people. I think they did ther best to maintain the cleanliness.

It is better then those comments discribed, after I arrived the hostel and see the thing. If I am going to london again, i may stay in this hostel again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This hostel is in a great location, just a block from the Russell Square tube stop and a short walk to the British Museum and Library. This is a rather large hostel, and it does have a little of an institutional feel. Each room has bunk beds with privacy curtains, lockers and a sink. Toilets are scattered on each floor, but showers are located in the basement in a locker room type setting. Everything was very clean and it felt safe and secure. Computers were available with internet access for a charge. There is a large common room and laundry facilities. It seemed like many people were living here on a temporary basis while working at nearby hospitals. After staying in three different hostels in London, this is the one I would definitely return to.
