I've been coming to London for about ten years, from Devon, for various gigs and conventions and I always go for a cheap hotel, after all when all you're doing is sleeping there all you need is a bed. When I found the City View for £40 a night for three nights, it seemed to good to be true. The...

I booked a single room here on the 25th feb. This was due to flying from Switzerland to attend a weekend course in London. Unfortunately my Swiss bank card was declined due to reasons unknown, which I was made aware of at around 9:30pm the evening before i was due to check in. This email informed me I had 24...

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Stayed in room number 107, which was quite big, had our own large fridge, bed and bedding REALLY comfortable, had the best nights sleep in a long time. Breakfast was okay, small selection of cooked food. Excellent value for money. If you like/dont mind hostels, this would be good, has a hostel feel to it....

No facilities for breakfast, no tables and chairs and the kitchen i saw was a wee cubbyhole containing a fridge and a cooker, couch in foyer always had someone sleeping on it. Was told breakfast served at 8am but had to leave before then for work. Rooms were cramped and smelt damp and mouldy. Beds were not changed in the...

However on our last day we met a young lady working in reception by the name of Dounya shame she wasn't there from the beginning she made us feel very welcome and cooked the...

At first I thought it was some kind of sick joke when I entered the room. It stunk of poo and there was no end of semen and other bodily fluids everywhere. I have stayed in better quality crack dens in eastern Europe than this. Highly recommend to anyone looking to die a slow death.

The room was supposed to be a twin room , it was long and narrow with one bed behind the other, it was dull and dank, in the basement, and the stairs down had what looked like crumbled biscuit all down the stairs. It's the worst accommodation I've ever went to, atrocious is the word for it.

Where to start with this one!! The room was a very small box room with two single beds crammed in. There was nowhere to put our clothes so had to live out of our suitcase for three days which we had to climb over to get to bed because the room was so small. It was also very dirty. The...

This hostel was everything you can wish for for £55 per night / 2 persons. The rooms were tidy, sheets were comfortable and showers clean. The breakfast was also excellent! Toast, eggs, coffee, tea, orange juice, beans, sausage...
