Oh for a... More

I've neven been there, I have to change my travelling plans and had to cancel my reservation 15 days before going. Said they could charge a no show, that would be fair but they charged the four days that i would be staying there. The least i coud do is to put a negative review on them.

Despite reading the reviews and noting the location and bus stops beforehand, this was a bit too off-centre for the price. I don't mind a walk, but it had been raining persistently and Waterloo Station is about two miles away, so bus and Tube were necessary. What spoilt it for me was the bunk bed and no chair/desk - I...

Not a fan of leaving negative reviews, but in this case...I only gave 1 star because you have to mark something. Absolutely everything about this 'hotel' was abhorrent, from the TERRIBLE communication to the place itself. Chosen for its proximity to the O2, was a big mistake. The neighborhood area has armed guards patrolling on foot(first clue) our taxi driver... More

For some reason cabbies have NO IDEA where this place is. So be prepared with a full zipcode. Also if you are just arriving, know the bus routes(get off at the Alsace stop) or even better have your Uber app ready to go!!! Apparently London is HUGE on Uber and cabs dont frequent south of the river. Two girls on... More

I will write this review with my personal honesty. The staff were great, rooms were okay nothing special but they are cheap rooms, kitchen was nice, bathrooms were okay. HOWEVER: Good luck getting any sleep. It literally sounds like I am sleeping at a construction site. I heard metal being tossed around at 1:30AM into a garage nearby, I had... More
