Hostelworld says

The Steam Engine, Bestplace Inn is a great hostel for those looking to see some of London’s best-known sites. Guests tell us ‘you can easily walk everywhere in London’ from this hostel, including Piccadilly Circus, the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Lambeth North tube station is also nearby. Many of our visitors praise this hostel’s friendly staff, the ‘clean and really comfy beds’ and the discounted drinks and pizza in the pub downstairs. One reviewer told us they ‘would recommend this to someone wishing to meet real Londoners’.

I am not satisfied at all and will not choose this accommodation again. No kitchen! only one bathroom was available for one floor with 3 dorm rooms for men and women together! not clean at all. toilet without soap! beds were in 3 floors, very noisy and beds were not totally separated. Power bank and airpods were felt down on my head from guys on toper beds during the night! could not sleep well!!!!

We unfortunately had a change in plans that was unavoidable and according to they website no matter what service you booked through all rooms are refundable but they refused to honor this and we lost our money. Terrible customer service as we gave a month notice which was plenty of time to fill our spots. In fact we saw that they had already filled them and still wouldn’t refund us. Bad customer service.
