This hostel is centrally located, clean, bright and friendly. It's suitable for any age group, families, couples, singles. There's a shop around the corner if the hostel isn't already selling what you require. I'd stay there anytime! The value for money is amazing.

thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighborhood is a favorite

you can try sending them an email but they generally do not adding beds beforehand. bed assignments are based on what is available when you check in

Lulu Lemon pants. They come with a passport pocket. Never separate yourself from your passport. Especially while travelling. You can control your pocket. You can't control the "safe" back at the hotel room.
