Good3.0 / 5
wasn't bad but very small
to be completely honest it was a nice place it was very clean but if you want a bathroom or a shower inside your room this will not be the place to go if you had a ground-level it would be okay but we are on the 6th floor and were required to walk up the stairs due to there being no lift or elevator which was fine because it was only a three-day short stay there was no breakfast included they were very hospitable and cleaned the rooms daily the room was probably the smallest room I've ever stayed in in my life the bed was uncomfortable but overall it wasn't a bad place to stay the neighborhood was good the tube station was near as well as bus stations places to eat and directly across the street from the train station if you're wanting to get to the London Eye or Tower Bridge or Tower of London it will be required to get on the subway or a bus that will take about a half hour if you're good at the tube maybe 10 minutes

This is a Hostel not a Hotel
The best thing about the hotel was the central location. The room was TINY, the size of a walk in closet. Bathroom and shower is shared between 3 rooms. One of the days we had no hot water. The hotel is OK if you are on a tight budget but if you expect anything decent this is not the place to go.

Not worth the price paid....great location
Location great. I was expecting a small room and shared bath...but pillow (inside pilowcase) was badly stained. Bed springs were dead. Shower head base was broken head was not useable for holding. All easy to fix items and would have made review much better

It was okay, I was on the top floor and the wifi was not good there. I had to literally sit in the second floor for good wifi. That was my only issue.
