Hostelworld says:

The Steam Engine, Bestplace Inn is a great hostel for those looking to see some of London's best-known sites. Guests tell us 'you can easily walk everywhere in London' from this hostel, including Piccadilly Circus, the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Lambeth North tube station is also nearby. Many of our visitors praise this hostel's friendly staff, the 'clean and really comfy beds' and the discounted drinks and pizza in the pub downstairs. One reviewer told us they 'would recommend this to someone wishing to meet real Londoners'.
