Stayed at the dorm while attending meeting at the university. For the price compared to hotels my expectations were low.
I found an adequate front desk staff who were efficient at check-in/out, making change, etc. but gave bad information about transit, provided little supervision of stored luggage.
The hall has a lift. Do not stay on the ground floor with reception that I think they call 1st or 2nd floor. The windows open out right on the sidewalk so no privacy and limited security. And with no air conditioning you will need to open the window. There is street noise on both front and back of the building so higher is better.
The single room was small, as you would expect in a college dorm, rather stark, but clean and adequate. There was a single bed under the window (I put my head at the other end to get away from the window noise and light), a desk with chair, wardrobe, and bedside table. Basic linens with a paper bathmat--dangerously slippery. Private bath with small shower stall, toilet, and sink. No vanity or counter space.
There is a coin laundry--washers, dryers, and iron that I made use of. A few vending machines. Coffee/tea in room, but no food onsite.
Security was good with front desk checking keys upon entry. Bus service on main road about 1.5 blocks away. Angel tube stop about 10-15 minute walk.
