Charming hostel a bit out of the way
We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Hour Glass. Everyone was courteous and the room was exactly what was advertised - reasonably priced and comfortable. The location is a bit out of the way, but it gave us a chance to experience London like someone who lives there.

Fantastic budget hotel.
For such a cheap stay (£40-50 per night) in London it was amazing. The host was lovely, showed me around the room and full kitchen facilities. I had an en-suite room, but there are cheaper options with shared facilities. If I am in the area again I will definitely book her (which is half the cost and twice as good as most other budget hotels in London).

Friendly, comfortable, clean
Checking in at a busy local pub bar, part of the hotel, felt a bit unusual to start. A warm friendly welcome from the efficient staff immediately made we welcome. The room had obviously been recently updated. A stylish en-suite shower room with top quality fittings had plenty of hot water, and the bed was comfortable. What else do you need.
