8.8ExcellentExpand details
Great place to stay if you are going to London for a night out and can't afford a hotel. I was at my work xmas party in a hotel around the corner and some people paid £300 for a room there. A great hostel but turn down the heating! it was like a sauna
i didn't like the fact that i paid to stay in a 6 bedroom and the staff put us in a 10 beds, showers were in the basement and my room in the 3rd floor, the room was too warm and there was only a little window.. at least it was clean

I enjoy staying at the old Georgian building which is Smart Russell Square. Its proximity to the British Museum is ideal. Other hostellers there are usually pleasant. The Staff try to please.
