Liked: The location, the price is one of the cheapest in London, toilets and shower better than in most dormitories in London

Disliked: the price still high compared to the quality. Beds are uncomfortable, the radiator didn't work, the room was moisture and cold if we kept the window open, if not, then the air was really bad. The breakfast not even worth mentioning..

Liked: Camden smart inn is very good value for money, relaxed, safe and confortable. You can get a good nights sleep and access a cosy kitchen, tv room and garden. There is also washing machine access for longer stays. The location is excellent, in between Mornington Cresent and Camden Town.

Disliked: The staff were friendly and helpful but I did have to go back to ask where the showers and kitchen were and what to do with the bedding. There is little signage around and there is no lift access, so be prepared to climb 5 flights up and down for breakfast! There are not many showers but I did not have to wait too long to use one. I would have liked to see soya milk at breakfast for my cereal and hot drinks as a vegan and for those with lactose intolerance! :)

Liked: Good location near the underground. Kitchen looked good but we didn't use it.

Disliked: The rooms are super cramped, 6 bed dorm should only be a 4 bed. They get super stuffy at night. You have to pay £2 a day for a locker.

Liked: Location only, nothing else.

Disliked: Cleanliness is not great. Int the shower you can't choose the temperature and it depends of the time you take it. The beds are not very large, there is no curtains to get personnal space. Breakfast is the worst ever : just a kitchen when you have a few things display to take, but tasted awful! Finally staff is completely unfriendly.
