We stayed in a twin room. Rooms: they are puny, the walls are so thin that one hears everything, carpet wasn't clean, bedsheets and towels were though (thank god !), no soap at the sink in the room, terrible matress which needs to be changed. Our room was looking at the street, so it did get loud at times. Bathrooms/Showers:... More

Bad: Room was a mess: there was a chair in the room with horrible marks and stains all over it. The Blind was dirty and so were the walls and the floor, just stains and marks. I have left my jacket in the room after i have checked out. I called them to send it back to me. They send... More

Small bed/study rooms and shared bathroom facilities. I have stayed a few times over the years and my most recent visit was I think the most comfortable. Showers/toilets (shared on floors) have been upgraded and were always clean. It has been and I guess still is probably 'luck of the draw' as to whether you have a quietish room and... More

This was my 3rd visit to Rosebery and I must admit, I was somewhat disappointed. First let me list the positives. It is a very good location in Islington with access to Angel Station plus great bus service right out front. Lots of places to eat, drink and shop within a couple of blocks. Exmouth Market offers great variety as... More

I am used to staying in campus accomodation during the summer in London, it is usually, basic but cheap, safe, clean and central. I had thought that Rosebury Hall would be a safe bet - how sadly i was wrong. The hall is a 1970s building, attractive from the outside in leafy Islington and just across the road from Sadlers...

The rooms are prison like. Simple bed, cupboard and table (with no chair) combo. The one we originated in had cut chair and holes in the walls. Staff were standard. Friendly enough. No real positives that make it willing to stay. Standard canteen. Wouldn't recommend for any travel.

Mattresses were a bit lumpy and the en suite ceiling was falling apart, other than that, it was ok for what we wanted, a central location for a stag night in London. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice, with other options if you didn't want a fry up!!
