Important Information

Hostelbookers Sale
Please note that all sales bookings are final and non-refundable. The property may charge your card in advance for the full amount of your stay. Payment protection is also not available in connection with these bookings. In the event that you cancel your booking the accommodation provider shall be entitled to retain the total outstanding costs of your booking. All rooms that are included in the sale are identified in their room type as [“!!! Sale !!! Non Refundable”].


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: You have a kitchen. Breakfast for 2 pounds. Good location. Big common room where you can meet others travelers.

Disliked: Small bed. Showers doesn't works very well, you have to press the button constantly. Only one sink in the kitchen. You have to go in the middle of the street if you want to smoke, you can't do it outside the hostel.

Liked: Clean, easy location just off the tube at Russell Square. Handy pub, coffee shop and Tesco Express just around the corner. Free cereal & toast in the morning (though I saw the sign about it was due to be chargeable from the next week) Shower in En-suite room was hot and powerful.

Disliked: Walls are quite thin so can hear other guests & cleaners in the morning although there was no rowdiness and everyone was fairly quiet.
