There aren't many places near central London that offer cheap accommodation that you wouldn't run a mile from, but Sir John Cass Hall is one of them. I stayed here for a week during the summer. The room accommodation was basic but comfortable and breakfast offered each morning was tasty and there was a good variety on offer. Broadband is offered in each room which is included in the price. The only thing I would say is really not good enough is the shower facilities. There aren't enough showers on each floor and the layout of the shower room isn't comfortable, there isn't much privacy and the shower head is at such an odd angle, it makes showering uncomfortable.
