I stayed here with a group of friends for a reunion weekend, it was easy to find and the price was good. The room was well laid out, but the space was a little tight when everyone was trying to get ready together.
There was a strong smell of chlorine and bleah, which was a bit off puttinh but at least you know the place was cleaned.
On the website it states that there is parking, i would like to advise that this isn't the case. There are plenty of charegable car parks in the surrounding area but feel the hostels website should state this as it is very mis-leading.
Every resident needs ID to check-in and when you come back, security want to see your key card which posed a slight problem as not all 10 of us had taken them out.
It is a 5 minute walk from the Russell Square Underground providing great links to central London.
All in all for the cost it is a good central location and suits a small budget. I would stay at this hostel again.
