    It was not too bad for a hostel but they can improve. Prices are ok but it can be cheaper. The facilities can be cleaned better. But is has a great great location in London. Near shops, museums and tourist places.

    Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
    the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
