i would always suggest this place to everyone going to london.
the location is just the best you can get (5 mins walking from holborn tube station. 15 minutes to covent garden/piccadilly circus) but still on a quiet nice street just across the british museum so far from the traffic and noise of the big london's streets yet close to everything you need such as supermarkets pub and everything that london has to offer.
really good prices and services considering it being an hostel. free breakfast and free access to (fully equipped) kitchen facilities. toilets and bathrooms are pretty clean and rooms are acceptable.
big lockers for each bed (you can easily fit a suitcase in each of them!)
the staff is the best part of the deal!! everyone is so friendly and helpfull..they really make your stay!!
just one thing that i recon needs to be fixed: they charge you for the wi fi..but considering all the rest the overall experience is definitely worth every penny!!

- One of the oldest low budget hotels in London, the Museum has been helping weary backpackers and travellers loosen up since 1977! The location of this hostel makes it one of the best value hostels in London central. Right in front of the British Museum guests can access Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Leicester Square in just 10 minutes. Definitely the best central London hostel.A cosy budget hostel split across two buildings near Russell Square, this low cost hotel doesn't feel much like it. With a recently renovated kitchen, new reception and revamped lounge. There are dozens of sights located so close to the hostel, and is best hostel to visit as much of London as you can take in! Otherwise stay indoors with your fellow residents and enjoy a good time in the kitchen or if weather permits on our small terrace. ... more less
