I managed to sleep well surprisingly. Free WIFI, always appreciated. Good area, close to Bethnal green tube station.
The room and bathroom are not very clean and the breakfast turned into a bit of a farce (self-service). Could do much worse, but not a high-flyer either
no sheets, poor enviroment
Towels and sheets seemed to be clean, they were the only thing that seemed to be.
Shower was filthy as was the duvet. General decor was old and worn. Staff were neither friendly or rude.
Cheap hotel, central location, great for a night out! Bed is so comfy had wicked sleep. Breakfast is standard continental croissants toast jam juice tea and eggs. Staff are really friendly, was well worth the money!
Price Location for trip (prudential ride london) so just round the car from a11 & straford
Stairs bit tight to get bike round!! Pretty noisy all night from main road, but hey that's london for you
I didn't like anything about this place -1000/10
The room was horrendous, the place smelled awful, everyone in the hotel shared a bathroom and kitchen. I was at that hotel for 10mins to charge my phone and then got the next train home! Do not recommend!!
The staff was very helpful and amiable. Flexibility - late check-out.
Bedbugs. Rooms were not sound-proof.
Bed set was dirty and smelly, bait and switch, breakfast was horrible( except arange juice and apple)
Always a lot of hot water.
There is a Wall around 2 1/2 sides of bed. No a/c. No hair dryer. One available plug in entire room. Back yard is a dumping area. Narrow stairs and short steps. Cockroaches in kitchen. Included breakfast but you cook your own. Only choice was eggs, toast and cereal. This place is a dump. I would not recommend it to anyone. I am very disappointed that Bookings.com have this place on their site.
The location, help yourself breakfast
I had booked 4 nights in this hostel, while I was looking for a flat in East London, and due to their 3 days cancelation policy I did not get a refund for the two nights I did not stay here, so be careful about that. I mean it's not like anyone would want to spend more than one night there: bedbugs, loud neighbours whom seemed to be some kind of relatives of the reception staff/owners and a really really small room badly decorated.
The staff was friendly and it was not far from the main attractions of London. The facilities available were relatively clean.
The bed was very hard with no substantial bed linen. I felt it was slightly over-priced for the quality.
Good price ,convenient location , clean rooms , self -service breakfast , flexibility ( late check in , early breakfast )
Zone 2 location so easy to access all of London and all the attractions. On check in the receptionist was very pleasant made sure the fan in the room was working and appeared to try to be helpful although he wasn't really.
Room didn't look like it had been hoovered. The plug sockets that were easily accessible were dangerously broken so I didn't use them for fear of electrocution on check out I told the receptionist who didn't seem to care. The sunk and shower took age to drain and some scummy water regurgitated from the sink. Could have been cleaner!!! it was not the worst place I've stayed in. But I don't think the price you pay for a room should effect the cleanliness
24 hour reception.
More like a hostel, than a hotel. Breakfast is self service, with only toast, cereal, eggs and bananas. You even have to wash up yourself. Paint peeling of the wall, mould all over the inside of the shower. Only stay here if you are desperate.
Location was brilliant and convenient. Staff were helpful. Didn't mind that with our room, we had to use shared bathroom facilities as they were well kept.
Only negative was the cleanliness of the sheets on our beds.
24 hr porterage clean room very keen prices
slightly anonymous entrance! non talkative staff no frills breakfast
i just like it because it is very close to bathenal green station also it is very close to suq
Surcharge for payment by credit card
Out of three staff we've met, only one was friendly enough to ad least say hello,
In act, same as left. Cockroach in the dishwasher. Bug in microwave. And a painfull back after lying on a totally worn matras (even my partner who just weights 58 kgs had a hard time on this matras).
the manager was very helpful especially to me as a first time visitor to London. It is a walking distanceto a train station (Bethnal Green)
Few staff, no assistance during breakfast, small rooms and beds. The beddings were changed once during my four night stay.
One staff member was very friendly and offered us a complimentary cold drink on arrival, however the other member of staff (both men) do not think could speak English and just grunted, nodded and smiled.
Very strong smell of bleach and had to open all windows and could not stop coughing, no mattress covers, bed bugs and generally shabby, smelly and dirty in the building in general. They need to give this place a deep clean and freshen up with a lick of paint and sort out mattresses.
Friendly and helpfull staff.
I liked the room and the staff was friendly and helpful
I didn't like the plugsockets as I couldn't charge my phone and no side lamp
The rude attitude of the front desk officer. The dirty environment. Hotel facilities not well maintained.
I found a cockroach walking on my pillow p
