Great price and location, would recommend!

London accom is so expensive. This place was barely any more than a hostel with bunk beds... But don't be suspicious, it's legit! Room (single) was compact but clean, it was everything I needed for a night or I could've stayed longer. Bathroom is very small so sorry but if you are overweight, it will be uncomfortable... Probably the nicest staff I encountered at any of my stays in England, if not Europe. I also could store my bags after checkout.

Brilliant location. Couldn't be anymore central

The room is TINY. Just a warning to those who do not travel light. My boyfriend and I are were staying there for 4 nights in the middle of a three week holiday so as you can imagine we had a medium/large suitcase each. I wouldn't recommend it if you have bags this size or more as there is literally NO space to put anything. We were falling over our bags to get to bathroom and bed! However a few nights with a small bag would be fine. Other than that brilliant location, breakfast ok and room cleaned well daily.
