    Perfect location. Felt very safe as solo female traveler. Very relaxed atmosphere rather like a private club of old. Up lots of stairs to my room, I was on the 6th floor. Freshly laundered bedding and plentiful hot water but the room was very small making it an extremely tight squeeze for three people. The India Club was a pleasant place to sit and relax. Very helpful and knowledgeable receptionist. Warm and friendly staff at breakfast.

    first night there was really nice and helpful staff around and they prepared an ok breakfats on time, rest of my stay there was only grumpy staff around, breakfast was not on time and poorly prepared. Other than that an absolutely great place to stay in the greatest city on this planet. You can still feel the glamour from past times, the house shows a perfect balance between preserving the old atmosphere but sort of keeping up to current standards.

    Honestly, this hostel’s main selling point is its location. It lacks lots of other things. First of all, because it is actually a hotel with a few hostel style rooms it completely lacks the hostel vibe. The bathrooms are tiny, the showers barely work(mine just stopped halfway through), and my room was crazy freezing - it took two days for my sweater to dry. If you’re looking for a typical hostel,this is not it. But I would stay again,just because of location. Also,the staff is super friendly

    This is a Hotel with subpar hostel facilities. To be fair though, they are one of the most inexpensive options for a private room in London. The room I got was very small and had a very faint smell. The lounge area is not really a lounge area, somehow it doesn’t really invite to stay in there. Every time I stopped by it was empty. So I wouldn’t recommend this place for someone traveling solo, definitely recommended for a couple or pair of friends looking to travel in a budget.

    Everything was very basic but it was good enough. Staff was friendly and breakfast was ok. Showers could have been cleaner and the light should be fixed. Some beds are also of poor quality. Overall it was good for the price we paid and it had the perfect location. I would definitely recommend going to the Indian restaurant that is in the same building since it’s delicious and very cheap!

    The atmosphere isn't great because they don't have a common area. The rooms are small and a bit old, but everything is clean. The location is great because it's in a central location close to metro stations and points of interest.

    Room left a lot to be desired. Dirty bed sheet in the wardrobe. Curtains did not fit the window. Room was very small for 3 people. Disappointed as we stopped last year at Baden Powell House qhich was excellent.

    Pros: Great location! It is located in the very heart of London which makes traveling a breeze. Friendly staff and free breakfast. Cons: That's pretty much that only benefit of staying at this hotel. The security is relatively okay for a hostel but you might want to spend a bit more money to have better security. Facilities were fine (toilets and showers were okay - and they are shared at each floor) If you're staying in a dorm, you might want to be super careful of your belongings.
