John Scrivener thinks…

"Its well placed and priced, central London plus a 1 min walk to the Picadilly line, which means you can get the tube to Heathrow without any changes."

Important Information

We require guests under 12 to be booked into private accommodation. If booking a dormitory for a family, please email us before booking to guarantee private placement is available. BOOKINGS OF 10 OR MORE PEOPLE are considered Group Bookings and must be booked with The Group Bookings Department to verify availability for the dates, as well as special Group Rates that may be more or less than those stated for individuals. As Group Bookings require more effort regarding placement, security, processing, etc., we must reserve the right to deny any bookings made for more than 10 people. Please also be aware that your deposit is non-refundable per HostelBookers.com TOS and therefore booking more than 10 people puts your 10% deposit at risk as you will not be refunded.

Liked: Excellent location, have stayed in a few hostels and this was one of the better ones i have stayed in, nothing fancy but somewhere safe and secure to lie your head at night after a day of seeing the sights. Very clean, we were on the top floor which was quite a trek but we didnt mind. Location was excellent!

Matthew Schick

17 July 2009

Liked: It was clean and simple. I liked the curtains in the dorm rooms-it gave more privacy and it didn't feel like there were 24people in the room. The breakfast was average, and there was leaflets available. If travelling to/from Heathrow, the underground runs directly to/from the airport to Russell Square-no inconvenient changes with luggage.The kitchen was a lot smaller than it looked on the photos, there were only 4 hobs available for cooking which was not enough for the size of the hostel which means waiting around to cook a meal. No lockers were available which meant a lot of suitcases in the room, and no place to store valuables (small lockers available for a fee). The 15% tax is NOT included when you book so the actual cost will be more. If you use a credit card to pay, there is 1.5% fee for doing this! Therefore go to an ATM before checking in if you want to avoid this. Overall the stay was good, and may consider staying again.
