You know, if this was less than 20 pounds a night I would give this 5 stars. It's the perfect down and out flophouse of my dreams. I don't think there is even a right angle in the whole building! The bathroom was tiled a beautiful turquoise blue sometime when David Bowie was in the charts (Heroes period I think) and I don't think the rooms are ever vacuumed. However, they are warm and dry. I would advise anyone staying here or in a similar dive to bring their own sleeping bag, although I can't say I was bitten whilst sleeping.
GOOD SIDE: right next to Earls Court station so zone 2 and great transport links into town. Really lively area, nice and friendly people, lots of good asian/indian food.
BAD SIDE: Paid 40 pounds for single: should be max. 20 pounds
