Clean clean clean! Clean beds, clean toilets.

During my first night, there wasn't as heater, almost freeze to death when I woke up. Thank God on my third night, there was the heater! Because it snowed!!!!

Along Jermyn Street! 5-7mins walk from Piccadily station! Good food around! Theatre nearby. Tesco around! Good good good!

Do not expect too much as this is hostel style. Only bad thing, super small lift! No choice, as hostel located in an old building.

You'll meet many other travellers from all over the world, will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: You can either choose the room of 8 w private toilet or simply share the toilet located just outside...

There is no sign on the building that mentions there is a hostel there, but it exists. Everything looks suspicious (the creaky small elevator and especially the check-in area where they take you downstairs to the dimly lit restaurant to pay), but the rooms are actually pretty nice. The beds are clean, the showers are clean (no towels), and the WiFi is good. There are no lockers or locks on the doors, but it's safe to leave clothes and chargers.

Great location, but appalling hostel. I totally agree with the comments of Piret P and am not surprised by those of tash787. In the kitchen, the fridge wasn't working and cupboards were hanging off hinges. The bathroom situation was appalling. The ratio of women to bathrooms was totally inadequate - it was very difficult to even use a toilet. The bathroom was so disgusting. The shower recess looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a year - I have never seen such a disgusting shower. There was no hot water in one bathroom, which increased the overcrowding on the remaining 2. The beds were awful - you could feel the springs through the sheet. There was nowhere safe to leave your belongings. Downstairs in the Russian restaurant the staff offered to 'mind' your valuables - I wouldn't take the risk. The doors to the building weren't opened until sometime between 9 and 11 am. So if you wanted to go out before this time in the morning, you wouldn't be able to get back in. The only good thing was the location. But it didn't compensate for the disgusting hostel. In future I'd rather stay further out of the city and catch the tube in. I recommend avoiding this hostel. I wish I'd read some more reviews before I stayed there.

Room Tip: Avoid - there is no good room

Located one block from Piccadilly Circus on Jermyn St., this women's only hostel is in a FANTASTIC location! Within walking distance of Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, parks, museums- I arrived, threw down my bag and within 10 minutes was touring Buckingham Palace grounds. The dorm rooms are kept clean. The microwave needs repair and the shower could be kept cleaner, but for the price...The elevator is a bit rickety. The only downside is that they don't open until 10 or 11 am on the weekend- I went for coffee and got locked out! I would recommend storing your bags with the office staff, several women had items stolen. Good place to rest after a day/night of London!

Room Tip: Change dorms if your roomates are noisy or sketchy.

Please note no website advertise we provide a microwave and that, as written on the information sheet we shows to all our guests at the check in our doors opens at midday.
Regarding guests and their belonging we always suggest to leave valuables at the main reception to avoid other girls taking or using other guests things.
