    Location is amazing to explore areas like Southbank and Westminster. Staff weren’t very friendly. Facilities basic but all that we needed for our stay.

    Cheap but don’t expect anything other than the basics from these guys! You can drop your bag off early but it’s in an unlocked cupboard so take out valuables. Tiny toilet and shower rooms, very basic buffet breakfast but the location is fantastic and if you don’t mind the above it’s worth a visit. Keep luggage to a minimum as access is up a steep staircase also.

    Location is great and staff are very pleasant. Breakfast included which was simple but just what I needed. The building is old and so the plumbing system is not great and everything has a look of deteriation. My main issue was the cleanliness. Every room, toilet, lounge area, whatever, there is dust and dirt. Not necessarily on the floor but windowsills etc. This could be easily fixed and it would improve things greatly. The highlight is the beautiful Indian styled bar to relax in.

    Amazing location and lovely view from the bedrooms on the 6th floor. However, my room (6 beds) was very crammed and dirty! It was also very hot even though it was only around 18° outside, so I definitely wouldn’t recommend going there in summer! If you’re only looking for a cheap place to stay in an amazing location, this is for you. If you want to spend more than just the night: go somewhere else.

    Bare bones, WiFi is no bueno. Amazing location on The Strand. Walk to covent garden, embankment, Gordon’s Wine Bar and Westminster. India Club Restaurant is tight inside.

    The bathrooms were not clean and the toilets even stopped flushing during my stay, there were smudges of dirt on the bed sheets, and the hostel lacked any sort of community atmosphere. Apart from all that the location was amazing.

    It was just dirty. And I got there and my bed hadn't been changed, I didn't shower because the showers were gross. I was only there for a night so no big deal but I would not stay there long term.

    I was meant to stay two nights but had to leave after one, losing money and paying elsewhere. Good location but crammed tiny room, not very clean, very hot, uncomfortable bed and pillows, curtains did not block out the sunlight which came streaming in from 4am, very noisey, not nice toilet and showers. Must have managed 2 hours sleep if that and ended up with a really bad back. For the price I dont know what I expected, I have perhaps been spoilt by hostels in other countries for the same price.

    Location is great nice and central for everything. Everything else was terrible. No hot water, beds are terrible, wasn’t clean, a strong breeze would blow the door open not very secure. I would never stay here again not even if I was paid. Best part of the place was leaving.
