    Great! We loved the private room (double bed, en suite) B, the joint facilities and the garden. We loved the food, Dana at the reception, the cat. Actually, we loved everything there and will come back again and again and again. I am so happy - finally I found my backpackers hotel in London. :)

    Have stayed here before and it was good , it is a good location. Very disapointed this time . noise does not bother me ,so that would not count. Showers did not work very well ,a few people had trouble getting their door key to move in our dorm. This place I would give the thumbs down.
