Liked: Excellent location, only a short walk to Camden Lock. Very handy for a weekend away with friends.

Liked: Nulla

Disliked: Non c'è nessun controllo per quanto riguarda cibi in camera (Il tuo vicino di letto che mangia pollo fritto alle 2 di notte sveglierebbe chiunque).. I materassi e le coperte sono tappezzati di macchie e buchi. Va bene che forniscono le lenzuola ma il solo pensare di essere in contatto con quei ricettacoli di batteri lascia ben poca voglia di farsi una bella dormita dopo una giornata stancante.

Liked: The location was pretty good. Everything was a short metro away and the Camden area is super nice if you want to stay close. Just a little hint: they charge a fortune for the towels, but the receptionist just gave us extra sheets which worked beautifully!

Disliked: Very cramped and the room became extremely warm at night. Also, they charge a 10 pound security deposit which they give you back when you leave. So if you are leaving England right after you wont be able to use it.
