No words can describe the strand. We arrived at the hostel (not hotel) and immediately felt uneasy. The girl at the desk was not very inviting as she gave us our instructions. We climbed up to the six floor (which was actually an attic) and walked into our filthy and stinky room. We had to make our beds and were... More

The hostel is located in the upper floors of a building on strand street, above a Indian restaurant. A little bit hard to find, especially due to the reacent constructions, the biggest selling point is of course the value one get for the rather cheap price. 3 nights in a 4 bed room cost me about 90 pounds total.

This place whilst cheap is an absolute disgrace. I booked to stay 1 night in a 6 bed dormitory, I arrived late at 3am and 3 people were asleep in bed. I took an available bed and went to sleep, I was woken an hour later by an irate Eastern European guy who claimed I was in HIS bed! I... More

The place is frequented by budget minded people and not middle class couples away for the weekend. The bed was clean with fresh towels. The hotel was warm and staff friendly. I got a... More

Ideal central location and reasonably priced. Do not be out off by the tired entry. The room was clean and warm, with a hand basin and coffee-making facility. Very friendly and helpful staff. I will go there again. Walking distance to Covent Garden, and tourist bus stops almost outside.
