My room had a blocked sink, stunk of fish, sockets bar 1 didn’t work, neither did the shaving port above said blocked sink. the place itself was run down, showers out of service, security door broken. the lady on reception was okay during the day but the nighttime staff were rude, going as far to say i wasn’t actually staying at the hotel. the only good thing was the location. never returning

Amazing location and decent hostel. The India Club downstairs is really good. Bathrooms were a bit dirty. You get what you pay for.

To start, my interactions with the staff were good, the location is perfect in central london, and it is a good value. However, upon check in, I was told the wifi would only work on the first floor (i was on the sixth floor). after trying to connect, i found out it was only working in one half of the first floor and even still the connection was extremely poor. The sink in the bathroom on my floor did not work, as well as some toilets on the first floor. The lock on my room was very finicky
