I just completed a 5 night stay at The Steam Engine and would highly recommend it. The building itself was adorable - bar (with also served pizza) downstairs and sleeping area upstairs. The staff is great - they even got us checked in early the day we arrived since we were dead on our feet so we could sleep. Location is very good. Close to a tube station, Big Ben/Buckingham Palace, SOHO area. And the bar downstairs is a great hangout and we meet a lot of cool people.
Only MINOR negatives to note: rooms are a little small with 12 people and all the luggage (but honestly, how much time do you spend in there?) but I felt completely safe leaving my bag out. Also, there are only 2 showers for three rooms of people, but I had hot water each time and timing was never really an issue if you are careful.
