Excellent budget hotel in a fantastic location rightt next door to a tube station which has a lift up to street level. The basic rooms are small, but all the furniture is new and there are 2 shower rooms on each floor which I never had a problem accessing.
The special thing about this hotel is the quality of the towels, you wouldn't get thicker at the Ritz. The breakfast is taken next door in the Italian cafe where they servce the best cappucino in London. Really this hotel is amazing value and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I stay their regularly and wouldn't book anywhere else

Stayed 1 night in July 2004.

The room, toilet and shower were clean and in working order. The staff were very friendly. Location is very central.

The price was £ 33.00 per night, which is at the lower end of the scale in London.

Despite the mentioned good sides, no more than two points for this hostel:

Like almost all accommodation in Britain, and in London in particular this one suffers from a grotesque value-for-money imbalance (at £ 33.00 you'd get a fine double room in a **Hotel in Paris, not to mention Berlin). The rooms and their furniture are rather run down (from generations of students), towels and toiletry are not provided, the showers have the charm of those cheap plastic things they used to insert in their kitchens in the former communist East Germany.

So, by British standards the place is ok, but then these standards are dismally low.
