Backpacking / gap year

Liked: This was an excellent value for me as a solo traveler with only a limited amount of time in London. Being right in the middle of everything meant I was able to avoid having to waste any time commuting and start my day right in the thick of things. The hotel is old, and offers no lift, but as a backpacker this was no problem. The location felt extremely safe as the residence floors have a passcode lock to access, and staff was on hand 24/7. The staff also was very accommodating in that I had to upload a large file overnight, and they gladly kept my laptop behind the desk while the file transferred.

Disliked: Nothing for me to complain about. The location is just down the street from Trafalgar square, so expect road noise from outside, but I wouldn't put this on the hotel. Wifi does not extend to rooms (unless you sit by the window). But there is a 24/7 lounge that has bar service until 11pm.

Liked: First of all, the hostel is exceptionally well positioned for visiting the sites in London -- only a short walk from the Waterloo Bridge, National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, etc. The staff are also very, very nice and accommodating, and the facilities are kept clean and well organized.

Disliked: One major downside is the lack of a kitchen and refrigerator. A big asset of hostels is typically that you can save some money by cooking instead of eating out. So essentially the cost of eating out while staying here adds a fair bit to the price of accommodation.
