Do not miss this opportunity to save loads!
I simply can not recommend this place enough. So long as you are ok sharing a room with other highly respectful and nice people then you should use this place. I am quite old but have always been made welcome, the place feels very inclusive, and you meet all kinds of lovely travellers here. And it is so cheap! It is a jewel in the heart of London. To reassure you, I have never yet, in the dozen or so times I have stayed here, meet anyone who kept me awake if I needed to go to bed early, or were anything other than respectful of each other's dignity when it came to changing clothes etc. And there are lots of clean and well maintained facilities if you want to change, shower etc in complete privacy. You will be amazed what you can get for a fraction of the price of the grotty hotels in the area, if you are young at heart!

Very good 8.0
Good anyway
Unexpectedly stayed with a friend in Maida Vale and did not make the reservation, sorry. This establishment is known to us and would give a good rating anyway. Thanks.

Poor 2.0
Unfortunately not worth a visit
The room was freezing cold and the heater didn’t work. There was no hot water in the zinc in the room and the floor was sticky so we couldn’t walk bare foot.
