The room was quite big and had cage lockers under the beds. Bed was very comfortable but squeaky. The staff was brilliant, especially Marcel who was behind the bar. The lounge area is very nice with a patio, bar, TV, pool and foosball tables. Some food available at the bar but the hostel is very close to a shopping centre and about 40-50 minutes walking distance away from Westminster Bridge.

Facilities are good. Curfew at 12. No food or drink allowed in all public areas. No outside food or drink in restaurant. Runs like a high school dorm, not backpacker friendly.

Pro: New facilities, very helpful staff (we had a minor booking issue that was promptly solved prior to arrival date), very good-looking and cheerful dining room/bar/garden downstairs. Location is somewhat far from city centre /landmarks, but it is well served with buses (bus stop is just outside main entrance) taking 15-30 minutes max, to most places of interest. Also, there is a Metro/Rail station just under 10 mins. Cons: Bathrooms are few enough and can get very busy in early mornings.

Location is a bit out of the way but it's close to Bakerloo line. Very good facilities (beds, showers, common areas) and extremely helpful staff.

The hostel was extremely clean and was a great location to hop on both the bus and the tube. The rooms were comfortable and overall there were no complaints. Thank you for your hospitality!

Decent place. Very clean with sizeable communal areas. Downsides are the absence of self-catering facilities which are useful for the longer term guests. And also that the main communal area forbids the consumption of one's own food/drink. Almost forgot, if you don't have a padlock (or simply the correct shape/size of padlock) you'll have to buy (not rent) one for £3 of you want to lock away your things.

Loved our time at the SafeStay. Facilities were very clean and modern. The downstairs lounge / bar / patio dining area were fantastic. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A 5 minute walk to the underground made it easy to get around town. Would definitely stay here again!
