Liked: The location is superb, walking distance to most things. The area is very busy, but feels secure. Staff were friendly and breakfast decent enough. The bar is a nice communal space.

Disliked: Was mostly disappointed that our reservation had been split for the first night, so one of our party had to sleep in a different room. Poor organisation? The mattresses are old and dodgy-looking and need to be renewed. Overall the place didn't feel too clean, but may be partly to do with the age of the place - it's pretty run down. Bathrooms are teeny-tiny and there is no water pressure. It was okay for two nights due to the fantastic location, but I would not come back for a longer stay.

Liked: At check in the person on the desk was very friendly, helpful and caring.

Disliked: It was a bit dated and very unaccessable for people with some minor health conditions. There was no lift, only stairs and they had put me in a room on the fifth floor and after a while it got to a stage that it was quite impossible to staY at it because of all the stairs and especially when heaving a lot of luggage.

Liked: Right on the strand in the middle of the theatre district this is a brilliantly priced clean hostel right in the centre of London. Could not be better located (about 2 down from Somerset House, right by the Lyceum Theatre)

Disliked: No lift, which was stated when booking to be fairHowever, when we went to check out we couldn't find a member of staff for about twenty minutes, there was only one staff member on (about 9.00, even though breakfast was 7.30 to 9.30 and check out at 10) and even she was nowhere to be found, it was actually the person starting the next shift who checked us out when she arrived for work

Liked: They had everything I was looking for: common room, breakfast included, free wifi, restaurant open in the evening. Common room had a lot of atmosphere, being a bar with music playing and food and drinks available. Good value for money and will be coming back!

Disliked: Breakfast was average but adequate.
