Liked: It is a very safe environment, you can leave your things in the kitchen without fear of being stolen. Location is unbeatable, if you are low on budget you can walk practically everywhere, from the London Eye to Camden Town.

Disliked: No free wifi. There could be a small quota for booking, and charge if you need more, because it's so basic for a traveler it is a shame to pay for it!
