The location is as good as you can get, right next to the British Museum and 5 minutes walk to a tube station. It is also just about 15 minutes walk to SoHo and less than 30 minutes to Picadilly Circus. The amenities are pretty basic, with not enough bathrooms and toilets for the number of beds. The rooms are large and clean though.
