Perfect for my 23 year old self!
It is a great place for anyone not suffering jet lag. The staff were couteous, the patrons friendly and exotic, and the location could not be beat. The quarters are cramped, but the price is rock-bottom right!

Location Trumps All
I stayed here with my boyfriend earlier this month for 3 nights and what the hostel lacks, the location makes up for it. The floors have shared bathrooms and showers-our floor only had one shower and 2 toilets. The toilet situation was fine, but the one shower situation could be annoying-if you are trying to shower and get out to start your day and someone else is in you have to wait. The rooms don't have air conditioning; thankfully it wasn't hot the days we were there, so we slept with the window open, but that was a downside. There is no elevator, so be prepared to lug your suitcases up flights of stairs. The only REAL issue we had was with the WiFi-it didn't reach any floors other than the main floor where reception and the common area room was. Once we went upstairs to our room (on the third floor), we lost connection. The hotel WiFi network didn't even come up as a network we could connect to when we were in our room. And there were multiple times that we had to ask the reception to reboot the WiFi when we were downstairs in the common area because it was no longer connecting to our phones or laptop. Hotel issues aside, the location was gold. You are minutes walking distance from Covent Garden and Soho, where the streets are lined with bars, restaurants, and shops. The tube was also nearby so we had no problems getting around London. I don't know if I would stay here again, but if in a pinch for cheap room in a fantastic location this is the place to stay.

Not a hotel, barely a hostel.
Not very pleasant. The receptionist was almost never around. The wifi only works in the bar, and is slow at that.

Nice location
Convenient location. Need to walk a bit to either underground station though. Small room with fair noise isolation.. Easily woken up by neighbors banging the door!

Great location...and that's about it.
The location is great! Central and walking distance to the museums, Covent Garden, theaters, and more. The dorms are tiny and rundown. My first night, while using wifi in the lounge, I saw a mouse. The receptionist did not seem surprised. The shared bathrooms are clean, but again very run down. Wifi only works in the lobby/lounge area. Stay here if you have a high tolerance to old, worn accommodations. If you plan to be out most of the time anyway, and only using the room for sleeping (not relaxing) then this place is fine.
