The saying "You get what you pay for" has never been more true than with this pathetic excuse for a "hotel". First of all, it's a hostel not a hotel, and secondly, it's absolutely filthy. To be fair it was undergoing renovation at the time I stayed so perhaps when it doesn't resemble a building site it'll be nicer but I would strongly advise avoiding it until the reconstruction has been finished.
Me and my sister stayed here for one night when we were going to a gig in Shepherd's Bush and just wanted a cheap place to crash. The bedding (bunk beds) was clean(ish) but the room itself was very dirty; mouldy ceiling, stained and torn carpet, filthy skirting boards, dodgy furniture and a safe which didn't lock. The cupboards in the communal kitchen were hanging off and looked very unsafe. The communal bathroom was absolutely disgusting. Due to the vast number of people using it the floor was covered in dirty water by 9am, the bin was overflowing with sanitary waste, the shower attachment didn't connect to the wall, and there were dirty used towels everywhere.
On the upside, the staff were polite and it was only a 5 minute walk from the nearest tube station. For £22pp a night in central London I guess this is the standard but next time I'm definitely going to pay a bit more for something half decent.
