Great location that allows one to get all over london quickly. Felt secure. Renovated bar and lobby. Nice to be around so many international students. Be sure to stroll through regents park and see the rose garden.

I am currently completing a work based diploma towards a degree and I need to attend seminars in Central London. A few seminars were held over the last year at ISH and I was told of the availability of tooms in the venue itself (very handy). I usually only stay for 1 night. I have stayed in three types of...

I stayed at ISH for 5 days in a double room though I never ended up with a roommate. Considering the quality of the room and the price (I paid 130 GBP - approx. $200.00), it was a good value. London, like most of Europe, is expensive. The price also includes a daily voucher for a light breakfast. The ensuite... More

I stayed there for 5 days and I found the location perfect!! The tube station is outside and the Oxford street just 10min walking.. The only things I didn't like, is that they didn't clean the room daily, which I personally think is very important!!! Moreover, they seem to care a lot about the money, and they ask you to... More

I wouldn't honeymoon here, but I wasn't on my honeymoon! It was a suburb location and I felt safe walking back at night. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. There were a lot of events going on and very student oriented but the excitement was infectious! It seemed very standard of hostels I've stayed at... More

The staff are very friendly, the bar is nice and the location can't be beat. Very close to 5 tube stations, multiple bus lines and tour bus services. Easy walking distance to Marylebone High Street, Oxford and Regent Street, Camden Market and the sights of the city. Very close to convenience stores and restaurants also. It might not be the...

I stayed at ISH on August 2012 for a week. I have to say it's quite a good value if I take into account location and price. It is a hostel, not the hotel as many people are confused. The residence consists of 2 buildings - the main in Great Portland Street and the second in York Terrace. We were... More

Despite the attractive location and price, the publicity fails to mention that the hostel is essentially built on top of a (giant?) night club, which is thumping all night. Perhaps if you are a member of the deaf commuty, this is not a concern, but I could hear (and feel) the bass through the earplugs. This may not be the... More
