I stayed here for two nights. On the plus side, I saved a lot of money and I had a clean warm safe place to stay, with a small bathroom. There are buses that run nearby that take you to Bethnal Green tube station. Some of the rooms are close enough to the wi-fi hotspot to have a very good internet connection, which is included for no additional fee. On the down side, there's a loud water pump on the 3rd floor on the other side of the wall of my room that would go off every minute or so. I took off a picture frame from the wall to reduce the rattling sound. Even with ear plugs, I had a terrible night's sleep the first night. The friendly staff said they would turn it off for most of the night on the 2nd night, so I got a decent night's sleep on the second night. The shower is small with just barely enough hot water, but it is enough.
If the owners could isolate the water pump better and provide internet access to all the rooms and do just a bit more maintenance (e.g., fix the drippy faucet in my room), this would be a good affordable hotel.
