Hostelworld says

Many Hostelworld guests who visit Smart Russell Square say they particularly appreciate the under-bed lockers and ‘the curtains around the bed [which] allowed me to sleep anytime I wanted even when the lights were on’. Our visitors say this hostel has a ‘spotless’ kitchen, ‘friendly staff, comfortable beds, a good atmosphere and is conveniently located’ near the British Museum, ‘with a tube station, supermarket and pubs right around the corner’. We’re noticed that this hostel sees many repeat guests and several of our users say they’d stay here again.

The hostel is nice, but the staff isn't. We had a problem with the beds, they gave us one bed that was already full and to resolve that it took more then 30 minutes. The rooms are cleaned and organized. The nitchen is good, but you can't used in the morning because they have their own breakfast, I wish I knew that before buying things to have breakfast.
