    Reasonable basic accommodation. The room was tired but clean. Comfortable clean bed and the staff do clean throughout the day. Good kitchen facilities on each floor. The staff are great. Very helpful and they do have security in reception as well. Really close to the tube station and a bus stop outside which takes you direct to Oxford Circus for central shopping. A short walk to queen's park which is a lovely place to walk or jog around. A supermarket is only 5 minutes walk away for food.

    Wow... what a place lmao. It's interesting and even fun (the other guests who were there were the highlight). The girl on reception with curly hair seems to have no social skills at all. She was so so so rude to everyone. Shoutout to Jermaine on security for being awesome!

    One female on the front desk thinks she's gods gift to men and is not friendly and rude. You'll know who I mean if your unfortunate enough to book this place. You get what you pay for. Its not that bad other than that.

    Hi, I couldn't sleep or shower there, it is just disgusting, as well as the staff who are rude and disrespectful and treat customers like animals. This is by far the worst place I've entered in the whole of London, and I really regret it. They refused to give money back.
