    Shared toilets and showers are clean, fully equipped kitchen, breakfast included in the price, good laundry facilities and fast wifi. Typical London student accommodation rooms, small - but there is a sink and a small fridge. Transit apps will suggest you come by tube and overground; however, if you are carrying a heavy suitcase and want to avoid stairs, take a bus. Several bus lines serve Hackney and stop just a few metres away from Sir John Cass Hall. Lovely staff!

    Only problem was that the room gets pretty hot in the summer, and the window doesn’t open completely (or I couldn’t open at least). But the the rest was great

    The only bad thing I can say is the bed wasn't too comfortable for me and it wasn't possible opening the window enough in order to get fresh air during the night. But everything else was very good especially the shower and the breakfast! I'd definitely come back.

    If you’re looking for somewhere low key and quiet to get an early nights rest, this isn’t the place for you as there is loads of noise in outdoor areas and the kitchens until quite late. I did appreciate having my own room but it was a sauna without the window wide open. The communal showers were spotless which was a nice touch compared to the toilets on my level which were filthy and they could definitely do with an exhaust fan. In terms of value for money, I wouldn’t recommend.
