I wasn't expecting too much from the amount I paid for a room with two single beds in a hotel just outside of immediate London. But the room was very small, so much so that you couldn't get a photo showing all of the room. The beds were comfy but noisy to sit on and move around in. There were... More

We (four girls, 17 years old) have been to London in June 2015 for three nights. Our bedroom for four people was small but clean, really comfy and very practical because we had our own fridge, water boiler and microwave. The bathroom was clean, too, but unfortunately the douche was too small to shower without getting a lot of water... More

Yes this is a budget stay hotel and in the middle of a massive council estate BUT the staff and management are very friendly and accommodating, transport links are right on the door step and local amenities easily accessible. We visited the area to enjoy a concert in Brixton which was a 45 minute walk away from the hotel we... More

I booked online, and when I arrived in London, I got into a taxi and headed to my destination- the hour glass. As we were approaching, my taxi driver told me, "ya know, this area if the city is not really very nice....it's kind of a shizhole to be honest." Those were his exact words. When we finally pulled up... More

Friendly staff. Nice location as it is quite near to the central of London. Bus 343 can bring you to the elephant and castle station where you can go anywhere you want. Besides that, although the room is quite small, it is clean and tidy :)

Our first night at the hotel could have turned into a disaster. Beware of late arrivals, otherwise you pay an extra charge per hour. The hotel was easily accessible by bus from London bridge station (stop Alsace road). However, when we came in the room, we were astonished by its size!! We booked for 3 persons and there was barely... More
