“A decent place - Value for Money considering the location”
Reviewed 6 September 2010

No Internet Access, No TV so got bored. Rooms are decent, toilets are usually shared between two rooms. A classy hostel atmosphere. Staff is ok, not so great. Many places to eat and roam. Good breakfast. Value for money accommodation.

This hotel if ok, but dont believe the staff when you ask about parking during your stay they say although they do not book parking it is never a problem and there is always a place for your car. Guess what happened when we arrived down from Scarborough. the rooms are basic but ok, the bar etc area was dated and in need of a bit of TLC. the breakfast was good and hot. location is its redeeming feature being only five minutes walk from tube or bridge over Thames into central London. oh and there no wifi in the rooms or anywhere else in the hotel.

I stayed with my family for four nights while visiting London. It is an excellent choice if you are planning to visit central London and looking for value for money deals. The rooms are basic but they provide clean towels and linen. The breakfast is great but do reach 30 minutes before closing time to avoid a queue. It was a little noisy but that did not affect us.

This is a good choice if you are looking for a value for money deal.

Reasonable room price for central London. Clean simple room, kettle and drinks provided, no TV. Good checks on the door when we were there, providing safe accomodation for the many young people and other guests using the building. Great location behind Tate Modern, 5 minutes to the South Bank, or across the river to the West End.

First of all, it is really good value for money...the only serious shortcoming was quite a noisy backyard with a running engine of aircondition or what was it, so ask perhaps for the front rooms...moreover, the room was really hot during nights...at least beds were comfortable. What improved our feelings every morning was breakfast - really excellent choice of food from full English breakfast to vegetarian one + cold water, juice, tea, coffee. The canteen is quite noisy, however...but air-conditioned :) Bankside House is full of very young travellers and the reception is sometimes quite crowded and busy, however that make the place characteristic and, in my opinion, positive!
Central location = The major PLUS: Tate Modern is few steps from there and many, many other attraction as well. Try a short stroll via the Millenium Bridge to St.Paul's Cathedral. Oh, BTW...we were really suprised by HMS Belfast...hadn't expected that the ship could be such an interesting and exciting place.

Stayed overnight whilst visiting friends in London. Thought it was good value for London. Student accomodation, so fairly basic, but room was clean and so was bedding, they even provided towels and soap. I thought it might be noisy, but we didn't get disturbed at all.
The booking included breakfast, which was quite good, but there was a long queue in the morning! If having breakfast don't leave it till the last half hour like we did, or you may miss out.
Would definitely use this again. As good as travel lodge, but much cheaper!
