    Wonderful location that is close to many attractions in London. Grocery and pharmacy within 1 min walk of the front door as well. We stayed here for two nights. The front desk staff let us into our room early so we could nap after travelling all day/night. We would stay here again. Be prepared for stairs if you're staying here though...we were on the 5th floor. Thankfully, we had backpacks. It would be tough with suitcases. Room was clean and sheets/pillows/blankets were provided.

    Excellent location, friendly staff, check-in straightforward. We booked a private double room which was definitely in need of some TLC (carpet coming up, ripped bed linen) but perfectly acceptable for the two nights we were staying in London. WiFi didn’t reach our room either but could be accessed in the bar. Breakfast was typical hostel breakfast - milk and cereal, bread for toasting, coffees and juices etc. Loads of alternatives on the doorstep tho - Pret, Greggs etc.

    Location of Strand Continental was great, but that's about all it had going for it. Rooms were basic but slightly dirty. My room smelled like cigarette smoke. The bathrooms were dirtier, there was no hot water, and the toilets stopped working at random times. Generally felt a little sketchy being there, but I guess the value was equal to the experience.

    This hostel is ideally located, but I encountered several issues during my stay. First, the dorm rooms were far too small to hold as many people as they were set up to. In my room the entire floor was blocked by chairs, luggage, and the beds leaving no room to move around. Second, the bathrooms were abnormally dirty. During my three-night stay our toiled was completely clogged twice and ran out of toilet paper on multiple occasions. The hostel was also noisy due to the restaurant downstairs.

    Of course, London is expensive, so you can’t expect too much. The location is great! The rest bloody awful. Toilets and showers are dirty. Rooms feel like a Asian prison.

    The hostel is terrible. We checked in and did not stay even 10 minutes. But they charged full amount and did not return at least a part of payment.
