Liked: It was definetly value for money - wasn't very expensive and really good service from the staff. I arrived late at night and had to leave next morning, but from what I saw there was a very good atmosphere, it was safe, breakfast was okay and they helped me charge my phone, when I had forgotten my charger. It is easy to find if you have a map with you - approx 10 min walking north of Oxford Street, nice location.

Disliked: Mia Melanie left no negative feedback.

Liked: location is good, very close to the train staion. The reception staff is very friendly to answer my question and help us to solve the problem.

Disliked: We rent a 4 person room with private toilet but the toilet light is not working. They should have check the room condition before they give away the room. Ask them to fix, as a result they lock the bathroom and leave a note asking us to use the bathroom outside bacause they can't fix it. Quite upset that we have to use the bathroom outside although we should have a private bathroom. At the end, we ask the reception again and they manage to call someone to fix the toilet light on the second day.

As a family with children

Family Holiday

25 November 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location was great, the restaurant was a fair price and decent food, convenient after a long day of sightseeing

Disliked: The staff, though not openly rude, did not seem to like having families with kids around. Seemed a little annoyed with having to deal with family questions, but happy to talk to the under 30 crowd. The kitchen was a bit small and not grestly equpped. WiFi, all over the building would have been nice The website should have stated more clearly that only minimal linens were provided.

Liked: very helpful and friendly stuff!!and truly hostel-character though in heart of London!i really enjoyed!!

Disliked: Overall i really enjoyed!just some feedback for further improvement: slight amendements at wc could let guests have warm water without making a mess within the wc....elavators fully operating but controlling a bit the calling system , could make them more useful rather than just waitining and elevators responding to calls that are no longer in place...
