A fantastic location, a unbelievable good price for London, a small room with everything to have a rest and very friendly staff. I would and will recommend this place for everyone who requires a simple and safe place to stay in London.

The hostel is looking very tired and needs redecorating/bringing up to date. My room although very tidy had a falling in ceiling and damp. The staff however were amazing and would put a lot of Hotels to shame.

the area is lovely, breakfast is great, the building is spacious and the value for money in general is excellent. Good service, we appreciated the tea/coffee possibilities in the room. We felt very much at ease in the Lodge and will definitely go there again .

All attempts at cleanliness provided by the staff are thwarted by the age of building. Do not be discouraged. The staff are cheerful and helpful in answering questions; your rest at the lodge will be a quiet one. Security in the building is something to be noted: the front desk is 'manned, however the door locks didn't work. Often, I was able to walk into my dorm room without my key card. The real treat of this place are the grounds. You can picnic or spend a morning getting lost in a hedge maze

The building was an architectural gem in the sixties but sadly has not been maintained in recent years. The site is great, set in a large park with adjacent sports grounds and beautiful trees. The room was basic and tidy but it was disturbing to see rotting window sills. We were disappointed the hostel did not supply any soap in the bathroom and the toilet cistern functioned so poorly. On the positive side, the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent.

Really enjoyed my stay here. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful and make sure everything was ok. Great breakfast included, wifi is good and the park is a beautiful location to base yourself with the train and some shops just a short stroll away. Will be back!

Evening staff unfriendly &unhelpful. Breakfast very poor choice and quality - mouldy bread and not real orange juice. Very limited choice Room very poor condition, in need of decorating. Tiles fallen off bathroom wall and lots of mould in shower Sound proofing awful - could here everything in the bathroom Not told I needed to swipe the key card to close the door and the man in the next room walked in my room late at night. The cleaners also did the same at 8.30 on the day I was checking out

It was really difficult to find an affordable single room accommondation in London, and the deal was great value for money. Only its a bit far from the center. Anyhow, there is 24 hour bus running so one does not need to worry about the connections in the mid of night.
