Very good 75%

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

My second time in a Bestplace Inn and as usual it's a great stay!
I made some mistakes with my booking but still the staff managed to help me out and I'm so thankful!
It's located in a neighbourhood that feels safe and is only four blocks away from Victoria Station, to get you around all of London! It's clean and proper. Hostel-looking though. I'd say if you book in advance, you get more than what you pay for. The facilities are of hostel standard, but a good one.

A last shout out for the in-house pizza! Love all of the different types!


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It is a GREAT place !
We loved the furnished stuff and the services. This is really cheap and well made for young and students. We'll come back here next time.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Tiffany and Jenna


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

good bar.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very nice staff, rooms were clean, showers weren't great, but acceptable. The pub downstairs was very cozy and pleasant. If you don't mind other people sleeping in your room and don't need that much space around you, I can surely recommend this hostel to you.
