The rooms were clean, the staff were very friendly, and it was easy to find and get around.
A good hostel. It's clearly used as a student dorm much of the time, and yet - it's really clean, very quiet (the walls are concrete), and very conveniently located. Since the walls are concrete, it can be a bit chilly if they haven't turned on the heat, but that is the only drawback I could find.
The rooms are very basic; for the cost of the accommodation, perhaps you can find something better. The place has an orientation to rent rooms to students. The corridors are very small and it feels a strange smell in the rooms, like if some fresh air was needed. In general it is acceptable without expecting anything extraordinary. A nice plus is its location: really close to 2 metro stations that connect to many tourist sites. And another plus is the breakfast they offer, quite well.
The place is like a dormitory for students going to London school of Economics so u will see a lot of students there. There was a nice lounge area on the ground floor with TVs and foozball table. The reception is 24/7 which is nice. Breakfast is included. I got a double bed room and paid 104£, and it was extremely small. It felt like a jail cell. On top of this, u have to go out of your room to go to the bathroom, which is communal type.

Have stayed before and would stay again. Very good location. I like that older travellers stay here too. Staff were pleasant. Excellent breakfast. Towels, small toiletries provided. Has been revamped a little since I last stayed. Bathrooms were clean. Hand basins in room. Can get noisy at night due to traffic outside and other guests (so earplugs advisable). Those looking to meet people at a party hostel should look elsewhere. This suits those looking for a clean, safe bed for the night.
From Warren Street, the nearest underground, the hostel was very easy to find. Good location, not far from all the major stops in zone 1. Staff were VERY friendly. Rooms were simple but very clean and tidy. You can make yourself tea and coffee in the shared kitchen. 10MB of free WiFi. Very pleased to have a cooked English breakfast included every morning! Need to use your key card to get through 2 doors before you can get inside the building so we felt very safe and secure.
