Sabine Bellstedt thinks…

"Communal areas were all very spacious, kitchen facilities were fantastic. The beds were comfortable and private (even though the top bunks were a bit of a challenge to get into!)"

Jamie Tracy

01 January 2008 Jamie would recommend this property

Liked: Location! Very short walk from one of the main tube stations. The facilities are not that great but the location, free breakfast, and cheap price make it an excellent value for London. They were even nice enough to store my main luggage bag for me while I took 4 days to go tour Ireland (with just a smaller daypack). Lots of shops nearby as well.

Disliked: Jamie left no negative feedback.
