Andrew Ouchtomsky thinks…

"The large shared room was reasonably comfy. Seperate bathrooms and toilets made the stay easy. Great having the bar attached and breakfeast was decent for a stay in London."

Liked: Location is good and atmosphere is great. Met some amazing people there which made up for most of the negatives.

Disliked: I'm not very fussy but it's evident that this place is more concerned with making money than it is with providing the best experiences for it's guests. There's no kitchen. But what really got to me was that instead of repairing the toilet seats they just sat them back on top of the toilet bowl each day. Not good when you've had a couple. Last thing, the staff seem pretty unhappy. "We get treated like animals" was what I woke up to when a small meeting of staff randomly occurred in my bedroom one morning. The morale is kinda low there which unfortunately can be noticed.

Liked: The location was good and the staff was very friendly

Disliked: The bedrooms didn't had enough light and they were always dark we either didn't have any privacy at all, there was a lock on the cage under my bed that didn't let me put my luggage in, the bathrooms were the most dirty place I've ever seen, they were broken and smell bad, the halls were dirty and they charged me for trying to use the computers on the lobby that didn't work at all and didn't gave me my money back.

Liked: Ok for one-two nights, but no more than that. Good location, easy to find and enough space in the room (I was in the 10 one if I'm not wrong). But don't have big expectations, it's accommodation and it's London. The pub downstairs was amazing, though

Disliked: We arrive early in the morning and we need to pay for the lockers while the room was having done. It's safer, but it's expensive too.
