Great GREAT living room amazing BED ROOM (Yes, even though it was a 4-people dorm, we all had real...

We stayed in Pickwick Hall recently when we traveled to London for the Harry Potter play in the West End. Having spent a lot of money on the play tickets and flights our hotel budget was fairly small so we booked Pickwick Hall on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed there previously. We had a double room with...

Ridiculously cheap for a central, safe, attractive location in Bloomsbury, near the British Museum. Extremely basic, with a shared bath, but for the price paid, it was a clean, uncrowded, quiet place. But, what more do you need when London is at your doorstep?! Very close to two tube stations: Holburn and Russel Square and only one stop from St....

We stayed here for three nights on our trip of Europe. This is in an excellent location, close to tube underground - Holborn station. The rooms are clean and tidy. Fresh clean sheets. We had a double with shared bathroom. The bed was a queen size and there were two toilets and one shower on our floor which was of...

It was a pretty average place. Quite cheap but you get what you pay for. Beds were absolutely terrible with springs in them that I just felt all up my back. The showers weren't very good as well. There were two showers on my level that were both broken partly and annoying to use. Beside the annoying bathrooms and bed,...

I am very sorry that you did not have a comfortable sleep. We replaced most beds and mattresses last year to hotel quality and we will change the rest this year. The ones not changed last year appeared to us not to requre changing at that time: your experience shows that we made a mistake and I am sorry for...

Very nice hostel a block away from the British Museum. Very quiet, seems to cater more to couples and small groups. Patrick was very kind and helpful. Easy walk to the theater district. We stayed in a three bed room and had plenty of space. Serves a continental breakfast included in price. A very cheap way to stay in central...

My daughters and I stayed here in June 2016. It was our second visit and again we found it clean, comfortable, great value for money and so convenient. Patrick was a very welcoming and gracious host and made us feel right at home. However,I cannot say the same for the young lady on reception the day we left. We left...

Booked into a three person private ensuite room in this hostel with two my friends last week. We arrived at 10.30 to the hostel, paid our remaining balance, unpacked our bags and left the room eager to explore London. On return to the room around 4pm, we found ants had vacated it and were everywhere to be found - in...

I chose this hostel because it was reasonably priced, close to the British Museum, and has a kitchen that you can use. There was excellent communication prior to our arrival. The location is very close to two tube stations and a neighborhood Tesco. We had a room downstairs with four beds, an ensuite, and a mini fridge. If you are...

Thank you for your comments. Yes, we do not have a lift (elevator) between floors. I am intrigued that we waken your memories of Enid Blyton's stories!

I'm not a hostel person, I needed a cheap place to hang my hat. I opted for a private room with shared bath. I liked how my room had it's own sink. The hotel is near the Tube and great restaurants and British Museum. The room is clean and had a great view of the street.
