I couldn't have expected better for the price. I found it clean and pleasant, and the staff at the front desk were helpful when I asked about anything. The location was excellent, a few minutes from the Thames and Westminster itself. The shower/toilets were shared between two or three rooms, as was the kitchen, but they were kept clean and... More

Location is excellent right near all the main tourist attractions, so much so that once we arrived we didn't bother with the tube. It is easy to find out of Lambeth North take the 2nd road on your left, then right at the crossroads, walk 20 meters and it's opposite you. Chances are that you wont get a warm welcome... More

Three of us stayed here for two nights, the place was recommended by a friend. Really great way to stay in London when on a budget, much better value than a hotel and more private than a hostel. Rooms were basic but clean and spacious and each room had a sink. Shared bathroom and washrooms were clean. Kitchen did what... More

I stayed here for two nights with a friend when we went to see Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies at the Aldwych theatre. Bedding was clean and new, and the bed (although a bit harder than I am used to) was comfortable enough. Toilet and shower room and the kitchen were along the corridor. Self-catering if you want...

Price and location = great. HOWEVER, in order to pay I had to speak to a gentleman on the phone on arrival and read ALL my account details over the phone to him. I expressed my unhappiness but was not comforted. This resulted in me cancelling my card that night and not having my bank card for my stay because... More

The rooms are a bit old but they are clean and provided with clean towels,linens and a small sink. The shared bathroom and toilette were always free since they are shared by 4 different rooms. The kitchen is very convenient, it is fully equipped for anything you might like to cook or store in the fridge. The location was great,... More

This accommodation is student halls and some rooms are hired out for the summer when there aren't students requiring the rooms. A very comfortable room - small, basic, but all I needed for 2 nights, while studying for an exam. There was a well equipped kitchen, which was handy for cooking basic breakfast and ready meals in microwave. Very handy... More

I stayed here for a week and although the accommodation is basic it has everything you need and has a wonderful location. Staying in London seemed impossibly expensive but I managed to stay seven nights here for 249 pounds which was roughly the price of two nights in a hotel. A private room in a hostel would be more expensive... More

I went to London for 3 days in June on business for the first time. As I was paying my way I wanted to rather use my money to see the city rather than spend on expensive accommodation. Excellent value for money at the International House. Had a double room and shared bathroom with 2 other rooms. Rooms very nice... More

Convenient location, a 5 minute walk from Lambeth North tube station, and a 15 minute walk to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, and Parliament. 2 twin beds in each basic dorm (with a sink), shared bathroom and shared kitchen. Odd odors, stained carpets,Floor seemed dirty, so i was not... More
