One night bed AND breakfast for £60 in my own room with shared shower can't be bad in the heart of Theatre Land just up from the Savoy! But this is not the Savoy. I think you would struggle if you have mobility problems as there is a long stair case from the street, the lift wasn't working, and the...

This hostel is in a great location, about a ten minute walk from Leicester Square and Covent Garden. It is literally across the road from The Lion King theatre show. There is free breakfast included and for the price we paid we were pretty happy with that. The rooms are very small and do get very hot throughout the night,...

1泊シングルルームに泊まりました。Wifiは公共の2階だけで使えて、部屋では使えません。ドライヤーは無いので持参がおすすめ。壁が基本薄いのでとなりの人がしゃべりだすと煩いです。それでも、ベッドは清潔だし、共用のシャワーもトイレも使いやすかったです。受付はなんと24時間営業! Location is very good for me. You was able to go to the Astrology shop, Toreadwell's and the British museum. Single room was very comfotable but person who stay in the next door was a bit noisy. There's no hair dryer so if you have long hair, you had better bring yours. You can use wifi only in first...

Staff are really friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and location is really good. Loads of places to eat very close to the hostel. Me and my friends went there because my brother recommended this hostel to us... and it met our expectations.

Initially the lady on front desk was very friendly and helpful. How ever when we arrived in our room on the top floor the lighting didn't work and the floor smelled of sewage. The toilets are bog standard 😉 The rooms have tea and coffee with a mirror and wardrobe. There was no safe for your belongings. The rooms are...

Location was fantastic - within easy walking distance of Covent Garden, etc. Ideal place to stay for a night out in London. The room was fine. A nice comfortable bed and sink. I think it was pricey enough for a hostel room to be honest as it was very basic. But then again considering the location it was probably alright...

Stayed here for only one night alone. Was checked in to a room at the top floor with 6 beds total. The room was dirty, poorly ventilated, there was nowhere to hang up coats or put stuff except on your bed. The wall and windows next to my bed however was full of fungus/mould and the place, from the room...

Excellent location, very near Waterloo Bridge, Somerset House, King's College and walking distance toTemple tube. Breakfast was ok with cereals, toasts, fruit juices, coffee and tea. But hostel is in need of refurbishment as it is already old and quite shabby. Shared bathrooms are old and windows can't be shut. Lots of stairs with no lift, so we had to...

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
