    Our stay was great. The people at the desk were very accomodating and helpful. There is a closet (unlocked and accessable, but convenient) where you can leave your bags if arriving in London before checkin or leaving later in the day after check out. The beds were very comfy in my opinion. The location was great. And, there was a small sink and mirror right in our room which was a luxury when getting ready in the morning. All around good stay!

    Location is amazing, about 7 min walk from Covent garden, 10 min walk from nightclubs. Rooms are tiny and takes many stairs to get to your room, but doesn't really matter if you're not planning on staying long. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was basic but had very attentive staff. Lounge is very cute and has big windows with a great view of the strand. Bathrooms again very basic and could be cleaner but still great value for the price. Felt safe. Would defintely stay here again.

    Stayed there for two nights. The location is amazing. Super close to covent garden, trafalgar square etc. the rooms are tiny. And I mean tiny. I was staying in a 3 female dorm and we could barely move. I also had to keep my backpack in my bed Bc there was literally no room. The window wouldn’t shut all the way as it was broken. So it was quite cold during the night.

    This is a budget hotel rather than a traditional hostel, so don't expect the usual hostel facilities or atmosphere. However, it is a great location, very convent to reach Convent Garden and the West End, as well as the national gallery and other sites.

    In an aging building lacking many amenities, but in a great location. Despite being dated and up a lot of stairs, it was kept quite clean. One of the showers on our floor was nice, though the other one was strange and small. Check-in was fine, but felt a little unprofessional, and the room was tiny and lacked amenities such as outlets by each bed, lights, or anywhere to safely store our bags. Most frustrating was the lack of WiFi in the rooms. Restaurant smelled great though!

    The location, was just great, right at Strand next to Waterloo Bridge. 10 min walk to Soho, Covent Garden and 15 min to Chinatown. but there are a few downsides, the facility is very old and not really clean, all the water installations (faucets, toilets are old and not well taking care of, all shaky and loose) the comp Bfst is very very poor (Instant coffee, milk, tea, toast, cheese, empty peanut butter jar, empty jam jar) but I did not expect much, because of the price.

    This hostel is right on the Strand so very convenient for theatre trips. However, the facilities are very outdated and basic. My room was somewhat unfinished, was missing parts of the doorframe and had plaster marks all over the wall. Only one very flat pillow. Luggage storage room wasn’t locked so not very secure. No staff members were wearing masks at any time even though I stayed the same week the government had re-encouraged mask wearing to combat the new variant.

    The whole place needs a redo. The room was dirty and smelt. It was obvious someone had been smoking weed on our floor.
