They were unclear when staff was coming into your room for cleanings. Also there was loud drilling early in the morning. The breakfast, however, was very good, and the staff are very friendly and accommodating to residents needs.

Nice and helpful staff. Spacious breakfast lounge, also available as a self-study area at night. Excellent location - opposite to Domino's pizza, 3 mins' walk to Sainsbury's Local, 5 mins' walk to Holborn tube station, 7 mins' walk to a bunch of restaurants. Good for first-time visitors to London.

Excellantly located

I really liked LSE, the location was really close to a tube station which was very convenient. The only bummer is no access to free wi-fi. I felt the facilities were very clean, the only thing I noticed is our bathrooms weren't given attention during my stay. But all in all i had a really good experience and would come back! The breakfast is really good as well.

Everything is perfect except the Internet, which is extremely slow and you will spend more than 10 minutes to open google.....

The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast provided was very filling. Location was excellent, a few minutes walk from Covent Garden Market and Leicester Square.

USED TAMPONS on the floor in the toilet that were still there 3 days later. Need i say anymore? .. I will...Our room was occupied by previous people who should have already left, and the showers are automatically activated by an infrared sensor so ended up doing a NAKED HULA DANCE in front of the shower before realising that IT DID NOT WORK. Oh and THE INTERNET IS BROKEN. and the SWIPE CARDS to get into the main building DO NOT WORK.

The only thing is that fresh towels were not provided on a daily basis. Also, there waws no hot water on the first day which we were not aware of.

The hostel was in a good location with good security to the building, the beds were clean and comfy and considering the price for a central london hotel its a bargin in my books. However the kitchen was dirty and the shower wasn't great, though it did work! The kitchen had no pots or pans and no crockery either so was useless, however if you plan on eating out this wont bother you.

Really great location in central London, 2 minute walk from Holborn underground station. Room was clean and reasonably quiet seeing as it is in central London, brilliant breakfast too. Would definitely stay here again.

Some corridor doors are very noisy, oil should be made​​.

The LSE-Hostel is well located in centre of London very close to Oxford Street and Covent Garden. Is very clean and I can´t stop rhapsodizing about the breakfast: wide range of fresh bread, toast, croissants, sweet bread, lots of fresh fruits, jam an so on. It´s comfortable to sit there also with your Laptop. In the basement there a lots of freetime-activities like kicker, TV, great sitting area. Rooms are ok with bed and wash-bowl, what prove to be quite convenient, also wardrobe and desk.
