Cheap for London, but still not cheap based on the appalling state of the room.
So small I could barely close the door (which offered little security and I could see through to the outside landing). The toilet was so small that you had to be a circus contortionist to sit down and use it. Always smelled damp.
No wardrobe, only a short bar in the corner with a few hangers. No shelves, so most of my belongings stayed in the suitcase for the duration. No headboard for the bed and 6” space so that your pillows could fall down the back.
Room was way too hot and you couldn't regulate the radiator. I had to keep the roof fan on all night. 50% of light bulbs worked.
Didn't even bother with the breakfast... I went elsewhere to be assured of something decent.
Unless you really only want a bed and don’t care about anything else, I would avoid.
