The kitchen was clean but people used to let dishes and cutlery unwashed in the sink. Off course, this is not the hostel's fault but I would suggest they put some signs alerting costumers to wash their dishes (it is simple and can help uneducated people to think about it).

Good complete breakfast. Liked the location and the fact that Oxford Circus was just 10minutes walk away. The only thing I didn't quite enjoy was the noise control as we were constantly woken up at least every half of an hour past midnight from the doors.

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.

Great place to stay. It's walking distance to many of the "must see" in London and the center of the city. A perfect way to get to know London on foot and save some money on transport. Facilities were great, breakfast very generous and delicious. Plenty of shops, supermarkets, take aways and 3 tube stations close to it, if needed.

Fantastic hostel run by helpful staff. Excellent breakfast and above all the location is fantastic. Under £70 for a private room brilliant. Will be back

hope a better bathroom.

Breakfast was legit. Room was clean. The only real negative were shared bathroom facilities for both men and women. I feel this made some people uncomfortable.

The stuff is really helpful. and the breakfast is wonderful.. but the room and the hall have an awful smell. in the twin room we have only two sockets. anyway, the price is comparatively low in such a central district of London.

When we discovered the area the location seemed perfect, and i thought the showers will be like in camps, but i was pleasantly surprised about showers, i read already on other reviews about the hair dryers, really, they dont cost much, they should think about that, but all over it was really great place to stay with low budget.

My key failed and couldnt get into the room after had been to the toilet this could have been difficult if it happened at night couldn't get into one of the kitchen doors nearest my room and had to use the other door. On checkout day before the checkout time a cleaner barged into my room without knocking this could have been very embarassing had i not already been dressed as it was it gave me a shock and i find it unacceptable that she didn't at least knock before using her key.

It's actually a students house of LSE, so it kind of looks like a prison. Don't expect to find young travelers, most of guests are 40 or more years old. Don't expect to get too much sleep, either. My mattress had a hole in the middle of it, and very early in the morning they started moving furniture on the floor above me, so I always had to wake up around 7. The collective bathroom and kitchen are clean, but there's no way to control the temperature in the showers. Breakfast was great.

NO WIFI!!

Dirty rooms, mold, hostile staff, easy to bypass security, loud students stay here, staff refused to give me another open room (out of laziness - went back two hours later when shift changed and was able to secure one), not a 'bad' area but nothing is around - prepare to travel 15 minutes to find someplace to go eat.
