        I stayed at this hostel before and I thought I wouldnt stay again, however I thought it was an excellent value for money and I ended up staying for 4 nights. The stay was fantastic and there were lots of multi- culteral people staying which made me feel at home. The reception staff were fantatsic and I will be returning to london soon. (October 2011) Thanks to russel square hostel for making my stay an enjoyable one.

        The only thing I can say bad about this hostel is the availability of chairs for people to sit on especcially at night time.

        Basically good staff, usually quiet, clean bathrooms. It is very close to the Russel Square tube station, and you can reach the British Museum by foot in a few minutes.

        Pretty narrow rooms and beds, but liveable after all; pretty fair for a low-price hostel.

        Very clean hostel in compare to rest of uk hostels. Very near to main locations in London (Piccadilly, Oxford street, Soho etc...), price

        Showers are very far away from rooms. Several showers had only hot (to hot) water, so it is impossible to use them. Several showers were not working at all. All in all, the showers are the worst par of hostel, everything else is ok

        The room I was in seemed to have thicker - maybe new pillows since the last stay.

        I booked for two nights but when I arrived the receiptionist said I would have to book out the next morning and book back in because I could not have the same room for two nights.

        close to british museum

        room is too small, it is very hot in the room

        Breakfast. Cheap. Location, near tube station & Tesco Express.

        - Pretty big place, a bit confusing to find way to shower. - Too many school kids, a little bit difficult to meet people with around same age as me (30) - Built-in bed, ive got the 2nd bed from the bottom, so, it's a bit difficult to climb up to my bed.

        Excellent location and staff all seem professional and competent. The communal breakfast area is open and friendly and the security is good.

        Being in the basement was a pity - it felt a little locked away and isolated and there wasn't much air. I was also disappointed I couldn't stay a second night but it was full.

        Great location, lots of available space.

        Really poor air quality - rooms were uncomfortably stuffy. No explanation about the cost of in-room lockers until a roomate told me once I'd reached the room. "Breakfast" is just cereal and toast, not very appetizing. Showers very far from rooms, no place to put toiletries while showering, and grungy.

      • Single

        Too noisy, I can hear conversation of people who live other room.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        I liked the location and it was very clean.

        It was very annoying that the shower room was in the basement could have one on a couple of floors at least! There wasn't much of an atmosphere in the hostel during day/evenings.

      • Single
        7.4

        Nice people, good location, amazing price, a good hostel.

        The rooms were poorly ventilated. In the summer did a lot of heat. They should put a fan, or let the window be totaly opened.

      • Single
        7.4

        Great location, good communal space, nice staff, free fast wireless.

        No wireless signal in the rooms just in the common areas. The rooms are hospital like, as I believe this was an old medical facility, so not the most pleasant surroundings.

        Staff were polite and was able to communicate to a variety of visitors, dorms were clean, tidy and can be quite private with lockers available to, the location is brilliant I though as I like to explore quite a bit I found in a 30 minutes walking radius there is the museums close by famous landmarks to the south-west like Big Ben, London Eye and Westminster bridge, it's also close to the west end and soho

        I wasn't informed that they want £10 deposit that they give back after your stay was unexpected but fair enough, I did get it back after stay

        The location is convenient.

        The attitude of the staff is really bad!!! The staff is not helpful to solve clients' problems. Very noisy environment. The shower room is on the basement. Need to walk for a long distance to and from the shower room.

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        Great location! Clean and well organized. Some rooms have fewer beds, which means less disturbances. Security is fine and noisy guests are dealt with.

        The usual drawbacks: No reading light or electricity next to bed, the wifi is overcrowded (as are the common areas). Strange bathroom solution: most toilets are unisex with very little privacy. Showers are ok, but far away in the basement. The room was very hot and the bed a bit short for Scandinavians. Many guests are out partying until early morning, so plug your ears if you are not one of them.
