I stayed here for a couple nights as I was doing a job in town. It's a nice place with nice laugh I didn't have breakfast as I left before it started. Next time I'm in town I'll definition again. Best cheap hotel I have stayed in.

I knew in advance that this place wasn't going to be great considering how much i was paying, but i stayed there 3 nights a week for ten weeks while whirling in London. On three seperate stays i was eaten alive with insects and left with rashes and red blotches all over me. Eventually when a bug crawled up the...

We stayed here last year and the experience still feels like yesterday, quite literally, I still feel the crawling where the weird and very persistent rash was that I got as a token of our stay. On the first night I woke up to a mutantly large rat forcing entry into my handbag for the bag of nuts I had...

I stayed here for a week with my friends visit in London over Christmas. It's a a wonderfully friendly place at such a good price of the staff so helpful and giving me a map with discounts for London. Will definitely come back next time I'm in London has saved money to spend eating out.

Revisiting this stay in my mind embarks on an extremely dark period of my life. However, I felt compelled as a Good Samaritan to inform others of this horrifying experience. A never ending narrowing staircase was reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland as well as bed bugs that put wild beetles to shame. My room door was about 4ft high and...
