Liked: The atmosphere was very nice: open and friendly.The location was fantastic and its a nice building. Its a simple but fair hostel, nothing more nothing less.

Disliked: The rooms were rather small: good for a short stay but wouldnt recommend it for longer stays.internet was a bit slow (in the common room at least).

Liked: It was cheap and great location. And we had a quiet room, because the window was facing the back yard.

Disliked: The bed was terrible, there was only one shower/bathtub. The breakfast was a little too simple; toast and jam.

Liked: Location and staff

Disliked: Uncomfortable beds and noise coming through the thin doors. Noise from outside should be expected and not complained about as it's right on the Strand in central London!!

Liked: Location.

Disliked: "Continental breakfast" is only toast, melted butter, little jam, some cereal and a cup of coffee or tea. Luggage room is a dirty tiny shed that is not always locked. Internet does not work in the rooms but only in their Indian bar. Toilets don't even have a sink to wash your hands (it's in your room). Rooms very small for 4 people. Doors were not really safe (very cheap wood). In the bathroom you have nowhere to put your clothes or bath products on (except the floor). Also, the curtain bar fell down while I was taking a shower and for some extrange reason it was impossible to put it back onto its place. Surprisingly, the bar was reduced in length so it never reached both ends of the bathroom! It was a very strange scene, finding myself naked and cold trying to put this bar into place at 1 am..

Liked: The location is superb for all sites in london, I am a Londoner and anywhere on the Strand is good.You can get a private room a bit pricey as it was small and not up to the standard you would get at Uni. For a few pounds more you can stay at the travel lodge.

Disliked: The bathrooms are small and out dated but at least you got lots of hotwater.The stairs are small and lots.The windows do not hold back any noise from the street and being in london the traffic noise is 24/7, so not much sleep.
