    Overall, I am quite pleased with our stay at Strand. The location is perfect for everything...dining, shopping and a relaxing walk towards the river.

    Really clean, absolutely fantastic location. However, there were no lockers in the doorm room I had booked so I had to upgrade my room to a private room to ensure my stuff was safe. 14:00 check in and 10:00 check out left me feeling a bit rushed in the morning as well. Great hostel, just not necessarily one I would recommend for a night out.

    Great location; which is why we chose it. But definitely a fixer upper. Our 3 bed room was fine but the showers were cold and the whole space just looked old and in need of renovating.

    Stayed there just for one night. It was not really clean and there showers are horrible haha. Only really hot or really cold water. The breakfast was not nice. It was not really safe because there was no lockers in a shared bedroom.

    Had no hot water for 2 nights. The night staff were rude and hostile but the day staff (the lady and the chap with the Spanish accent (?) were marvelous! On 1 night, the night staff was fast asleep and rude to me when i woke him up. Another night staff demanded i show him my room key in an impolite manner, stating he was the boss. Staff are not wearing face masks and have no exemption badge.

    The only thing good about this hostel is its location. It is cramped, no lockers in rooms. The toilet seat was broken and barley flushed. Check-in took 40 minutes. The longest check in I've ever had anywhere! Breakfast was limited and even ran out of toast (couldn't just have popped to the shop in the corner and got another loaf of bread for the rest of the hostel that would have liked toast). Would not recommend staying here unless you're out most of the night at heaven night club.

    Location is excellent, but for the price I paid I didn’t have an experience on par to what I would expect. No wifi signal in the rooms, so I had to sit on the stairs near the lobby in order to work at night. Windows + walls are VERY thin, so expect to hear everything and everyone around you. I have had much better experiences elsewhere in London for a fairer price.

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