Brooke Hall Hostel
Ranked #636 of 908 Specialty Lodging in London
Reviewed February 29, 2008

It was the cheapest accommodation I found in London in december 2004. At that time I had to visit London in 7 days with just few bucks, so I decided to go to this hostel since it's really well connected to the City. You have connections to the tube (Oval station) and there's a bus stop in front of the hostel (very comfortable if you're getting back in the evenings and directly connected to Victoria). You can find any kind of restaurant and market near there. We stayed the first three nights in the northern building, that at that time really needed to be refurbished (and actually, recovered...). The room was nasty, quite dirty and with uncomfortable bed and dusty sheets and plaids.
We passed then to the southern building, recently painted and renovated, but our room was still smelling as it had been painted just two days before..it was even nastier sleeping there than in the dusty room. In this hostel there is all the kind of people that would choose a bad accommodation for a couple-of-quids fare: mostly people working there or students, not so many tourists. Although the buildings are big, there's no such common area to have a chat with buddies and make new friends. In the summer you can maybe take advantage of the garden and have the opportunity for a bbq, but that's pure speculation... At night we couldn't sleep because of people making noise or high volume music in other rooms... showers and toilets were really dirty... the maid entered the room without knocking the door the day we had to change the room. At that time, some Italian guys were running the hostel, very nasty people, I mean, they treated us really bad and we were compatriots!! Their mood was like... "ah-ha! look at that..two newcomers-neverbeeninlondon-compatriots..losers..." as they were the big travelers just for living and working there.
Anyway, if you're going to stay in London and don't want to spend that much money, passing the least time possible in the room and take advantage of tube/nightbuses..that could be a solution. Could be...
