The only good thing about the rooms is that they are not small. I had a bed with bumps. I only got soap in the bathroom. No shampoo, shower gel ... nothing. There was that funny smell everywhere, no ventilation in the bathroom. The noise is unbearable, both from slamming the door in the corridor and from the street. Breakfast is another story. For breakfast and dinner we had to cross the courtyard (which is not a pleasant experience when it rains) because we had meals in the opposite wing, though there was a dining room in our wing too. For breakfast we had only jam and butter and cold toast, stale fruit and coffee. If you want something else you have to pay for it (4.5 for one small sausage). For dinner the meat was gristly and tasteless. The staff was not helpful at all. Working time is flexible for some services (like for renting the adapters).
The only good thing about this hotel (or better to say hostel) is the vicinity of Oxford Street (10ish min walk) and the tube (few min walk away).
I know that my friends and I won't be their guests again.
