This place was pretty great value because of its location. It was so easy to get to many places by metro because of its central location. It was really close to Oxford Circus station and Tottenheim station which connect to 2 different lines.
It was nice that the gay village was really close. It was a a few minutes walk to a bunch of gay bars and clubs. I stayed in an all male dorm so there was a higher chance to meet other gay guys.
Room was clean and had lockers. There was also a sink in the room. The only real downside was the showers. While clean, it was open concept so the floor could be wet when you walked in but it wasn't horrible...similar to a locker room. Good thing is there was one shower to a room so you could lock it and have privacy.
Full kitchen facility which was nice. Wifi was good but overpriced. There was a Starbuck's close by where you could connect anytime if you're ok standing on the street. You can rent a converter for a plub which they charge you for but the give it back.
Please be warned there are a TON of stairs! Reception was pretty friendly.More
