It's a cheap hostel, the building is from the Victorian era. I've been sleeping there for a week and it's totally worth its price: It's not at the very center of London, but you can get to Baker Street station in a few tube stations, so in my opinion location it's not that bad.

This hostel is at a pub located close to a tube station not too far from central which is great for the budget. I found it very laid back and is probably the best choice for the money that I found online.

Great music in the pub, comfy chairs, wifi, friendly staff, and cheap all pluses. But, very dirty bathroom, dark dangerous hallways, weird smelly leaks... Cons seem weightier than pros. (Key deposit is cash only).
