This is a hostel, and we did book a double room so I don't feel like I can complain but I just have to say that this was the smallest room I have ever seen! It was tiny, but very clean nonetheless. We had some problems as the hostel had only just opened, like no shower curtain so water went everywhere, and it took me a while to figure out the heating which I still think was only working sporadically. But the kitchen was good and we cooked with everyone else and had some good nights in the common area. We stayed 7 nights.
There is a bit of a walk to the tube, but the bus is very close and just as handy, especially at night obviously when the tube is shut. This was great and very easy to get back late.
My major complaint was that the room was advertised with a TV but there was no TV in the room - it had not been installed yet - you could see the wires where it should be. I do not think you should advertise something and charge people for a service you don't provide. I'm sure by now these problems would have been fixed as work was still going and it's taken me a while to get around to writing this review!
