Liked: The rooms are clean and well set out, the location is close to Underground stations and it's very secure. The atmosphere and staff were great, friendly and open. I felt really comfortable there!!

Disliked: Not much, there was only one toilet and one shower for a few rooms of 8 people which didn't end up being a problem but could be if there were lots of people wanting to use it at the same time.

Liked: The lounge was nice. Staff were friendly. Rooms were ok.

Disliked: Maeby some more toilets and showers would be great. The main thing that bothered me was that you had to bring your own lock to the lockers, and I did, but the locker wouldn't close even with the lock. And pretty hard to meet people..
