There is nothing beautiful or elegant about this hostel, but if all you need is a place to sleep, it's perfectly adequate. I had a private single room with a shared bathroom, never had to wait for a shower, felt safe and comfortable while I was there. The best thing about this hotel is the location, right off Russell Square. You simply can't beat the location or the price! I will definitely stay there again the next time I am in London.

Great location, not a very social atmosphere. Would be nice if you had lockers in the room, very quiet place, good value for money

Ruhige aber dennoch zentrale Lage in der Nähe des British Museum. U-Bahn Stationen Holborn und Russel Square jeweils nur wenige hundert Meter entfernt. Saubere zweckmäßig eingerichtete Zimmer (inkl. Kühlschrank und Microwelle). Super Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Wir würden das Hostel auch beim nächsten Aufenthalt in London wieder buchen.

Perfect location and a really nice place to stay for a few days in London. My girlfriend and I were looking to just relax and this was perfect. Loved being able to use the kitchen and the fact that we could have a private room and it was very quiet and night and in the morning. Will definitely stay here again.

This hostel is safe and extremely central - just 15 mins walk to Soho and 5 minutes to Holborn station which is linked to Heathrow and basically everywhere. Don't expect amazing bathrooms - bring some thongs/flip flops to shower in and you'll be fine - you get what you pay for. Nice lounge and breakfast area. Had a great, comfy sleep in a single bed- room was a little stuffy but I think the people I was staying with had been there for a while. I'd stay again.

Tres bien place, proche du metro mais proprete tres limite... Les moquettes seraient a changer et de facon generale il faudrait vraiment rafraichir l'auberge. Il n'y a pas de douches mais des baignoires dont la proprete est egalement douteuse... Accueil sympathique et petit dej correct mais pas typique.

The location was great,you can either walk to many landmarks such as covent garden,oxford street or you can take the tube from russell square or holborn. The rooms on the first floor were spacious and clean. In addition to this, the sheets were clean and you can have free towel if you haven t brought yours. The only problem was charging phones as the power socket was damaged. Breakfast was basic but fresh. You can stay there safely if you don t mind about minor problems.

Fair warning, the top floor showers have very low water pressure and the space is quite narrow; 2nd floor facilities are good. I recommend the 4-bed female dorm as the room is well spaced out and comes with handy wardrobes for storage and a sink in the room.

Excellent location but not very clean!

I liked the hostel. It has a very nice enviroment. It is located at the city centre. Although it has a shared bathroom and toilet it is always clean. Towels and small sized soap are provided for customers. Breakfast is included. Internet is free Wifi which is good for us. Reception staff is very nice and friendly. If you plan to visit London for vacation I strongly advise that hostel.

Quiet at night, clean, good wifi, nice breakfast included, excellent location - this hostel did all the important stuff for us well. Only nitpick would be slightly small bathroom I guess, hardly any room to put anything.

If you are looking for a central, quiet and great-value-for-your-money place to stay, this is perfect. Comfortable and generous rooms, friendly and personal atmosphere, attentive staff, more than adequate facilities. We (family with teenagers) enjoyed our stay very much. Not your typical hostel though and probably not for party seekers.

This is quite a hard review to write. While the staff was very kind and helpful and the hostel is well located to the Holborn station and Kings Cr/St Pancr, our room in the basement had a few flaws to it which was a bit of a downside to our experience at Pickwick Hall. E.g. the shower was a bit mouldy - in general the bathrooms and towels wouldn't dry properly. There was no wifi signal in our room and we had to discover that the toilet brush holder was...well, not that clean. Still recommended.

Great staff and very convenient location. The room was clean all the essentials were provided. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
