Book Smart, Stay Smart!

Our Smart Russell Square hostel is the perfect hostel to reach any destination in London with ease, as it's right in the centre of London and very close to main bus routes and the London Underground. You'll have 24 hour access to the world famous city. With our friendly atmosphere there's always fun and interesting people to meet and exchange travel stories with.

Another advantage of this prime location is that we're only a short walk away from some of London's most famous tourist attractions, including the British Museum, Oxford Street and Soho .

Very close to the hostel is the world famous Camden Market , a selection of night clubs, and every Saturday the local shopping complex hosts a World Food Market.

ATTRACTION TICKETS

If you plan to visit the attractions of London, save yourself time and money by purchasing your attraction tickets right from our reception. With up to 20% off gate prices on attractions like Madame Tussaud's, Tower Of London, London Eye and The London Dungeon, you'll enjoy them even more as almost all of them are FastTrack Tickets - jumping you right to the head of the queue. That can save you up to three hours at every attraction. And if you'd prefer to visit the theatre, we can arrange the best tickets for you at great prices for any show in London.

CUSTOM MADE BEDS

The first thing you'll notice is our custom-made Pod Beds. These beds don't just offer you a place to rest your head, but they also have privacy screens and a light-blocking curtain so you can sleep in complete privacy and comfort, any time of the day. Linen and duvet are included in our rates for free.

SHOWERS

In order to reduce the waiting time for showers we have put all our showers in one place. This has solved the problem of queuing as there is always a shower available for you to use, with hot water 24hrs a day. There are also changing rooms with free lockers you can use while you're showering.

SECURITY

Security is something we take very seriously, to ensure that you and your belonging are secure. We have 24hr reception and high tech key-card system that allows you to just wave your key at your door to get in. And if you would like to use a locker, we can program your key to operate that too. Lockers are located under the Pod Beds so you'll never be far from your belongings. We also have Security Officers operating at night on the door and 24hr CCTV to ensure that the hostel is as safe as possible.

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.
