Liked: Very very cheap, which in London is not always easy to find! Nice old building with character in a nice area. Good facilities, and comfortable communal lounge with a bar and wifi. Security lockers in the rooms very handy.

Disliked: The cleanliness of bathrooms (both communal and in the rooms) is pretty awful. You get what you pay for I suppose; this place is uber uber cheap, and as a result you have to accept they apparently don't clean the bathrooms.

Liked: The staff are nice, the common area is fine as well and is not far from the metro. There are many places to eat and grocery stores around.

Disliked: Showers are very dirty and are the worst ever, room smells weird. Rather pay a bit more and stay in another place.
