5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I used this place for 2 nights as i needed to head to London for work and it is right around the corner from my office. Its actually pretty good - large building, pretty clean - soap and water in the bathrooms, hand sanitiser and reduced room capacity. Can't speak for when it's busy but staff are polite and at the moment it's not too busy! Recommended!

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
No clean bedding, no toilet in room, cleanliness poor. Rubbish from previous guests left in room. Overall cleanliness was disgusting, no space in the room. Very cheap hotel didn’t expect much but wow it couldn’t have been worse. 5 years behind bars is more appealing

Good hostel in central London
I stayed for one night in a single room. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, however the pillow wasn't firm enough for me so I have slept on two pillows. I noticed that faulty shower heads were replaced to new heads since my last visit. Also saw communal areas are cleaned frequently to keep the hostel covid free. I was satisfied with my stay.
