Was supposed to stay here for two nights. Got here and there was only a top bunk left even though i'd rung before i booked it to ensure i wouldn't have a top bunk. Room was on the 6th floor with no lift. Whole place smelt of curry..which is great but i don't want work clothes smelling of it the... More

We stayed here because of the location and it was such a mistake! We had all our electronics stolen from our LOCKED room, and we weren't sharing with strangers! I would treat this place with serious suspicion considering the room had not been broken into-

Had a 3 night stay here, room was a bed basin and nothing else. Suited us fine but stairs aren't for the faint hearted! Great spot for the theatre and easy to get around with close tube stations. Staff were a bit tricky to track down, other than that good place.

The "hotel" is quite close to Covent Garden, but still it's a rough walk when you have heavy luggages. The "hotel" does not have any elevator, so in case you have many suitcases with you, I would not suggest you to go for this place because you might be allocated to the highest floor (around 5th or 6th??). The other... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and the only positive thing is its sooo close to the center. It is even not worth to use tube if you dont go very far outside of the most touristic places, london eye, picadilly, covent garden etc. But (They were old Indian people) the staff was not helpful. There was no lift and... More

I know it was booked via budgetplaces, but the Hotel was in really bad conditions. Bad bed, curtain not properly fastent, toilets not working all the time and very bad breakfast. It was placed close to center, but I would have paid a little more to have stay in something just a little better.

The location is amazing. Very close to Trafalgar Square, the London eye, The Big Ben, Chinatown , Picadilly... Bed and sheets clean and nice staff. There is always someone in reception and if you are Spanish, there are spanish people working there. Breakfast included (toast, cereals, coffee...).

Clean bed and sheets, stayed in a 3 bed dorm room. Shower area was fine but the toilet was quite cramped. Location is a plus. One downside is the number of stairs I had to walk up to get to the room, 6th floor and I broke into a sweat even in the winter. Well, for 22 pound a night... More

The location of this hotel is excellent, right on the Strand and perfect for visiting the West End! The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the hotel is excellent value for money! The bathrooms are also clean (although, the 6th floor toilet door didn't lock properly) and well situated on each floor. The only drawbacks to this hotel is that... More

For my first time in London, from a very small town, I needed somewhere to stay that was accessible to my meetings (reasons for being in London). At £20 for a shared room I thought it was good going, but you really do get what you pay for. The reception staff were rude, make you feel small and liaise in... More
