Great location if you need a bed for the night
Location is perfect for our needs. Very close to the tube and Albert hall. The down side it wasn't a very nice room. plug socket hung off the wall and a hole munched in the wall. Shower and toilet not the best.

It was so bad we left after one night
The room was moldy. Every spring could be felt on the mattresses and the pillow was like an envelope. Rooms were tiny, walls and doors paper thin. The lock on our door looked like it had been kicked in. Shared bathroom was advertised, but it wasn't advertised that there were two bathrooms for pretty much the entire building. From 6-9am there was a noisy parade of nonstop showers leaving the bathroom soaking wet. The other bathroom was extremely dirty and moldy so I opted not to use that one. The WiFi stopped working about six hours after check-in and gave the "Connected, no internet access" signal for at least 15-16 hours before we left. Overall, the only thing this place has going for it is the location, which is close to Gloucester Street underground, but otherwise should be shut down. We left after the first night and ate the cost, as it was non refundable. I would never recommend this place to anybody.

Dirty room, Smelly Toilet, No reception. Blackout.
1 permanent staff and 1 cleaner do all job including cleaning and receiving customer. They have 24 rooms to take care. At least they need to provide a reception table to take customer in because it is a hot place for visitors. some need to get wet in the rain just for waiting someone to take them into the building. Toilet have no hot water. and very very bad .

Awful All Around
When my friend and I arrived at the "hotel" there were no instructions on how to get in. We rang what we thought was the door bell several times with no luck. My friend went around the corner to a neighbors house where they told her that this happens all time and people end up calling the owner. Because we were international we didn't have phone service. I stopped some men outside and asked if I could borrow their phone, by this time the employee of the "hotel" came out. He awkwardly confirmed that I had paid for the room then took us upstairs to a room and briefly showed us a bathroom and then showed us another room. We picked the 2nd room. He failed to mention that the building did not have hot water. The second night there was no water at all. I asked our neighbors staying in the room next to us about the situation. The one guy told me that if we went to the basement (4 flights down) the bathroom down there had water. The bathroom smelled awful. The half bath (2 piece) on our floor was disgusting. There was dust everywhere and it smelled of sewage. The sheets on the bed were stained, as were the towels. The WiFi was very temperamental. All in all the best part of this hotel was when we left.
