First, today is my last day at this wrongfully called "hotel", which is more of a hostel.
They only accept cash or debit cards to pay for the time you're staying, if you try to pay with credit cards they will charge you with 4% for who knows why, this is not detailed in booking.com, so if you're planning on staying here (thing I would not recommend) bring local cash. This is kind of odd for a business that receives INTERNATIONAL guests, it's easier to keep track of expenses using credit cards.
The guys at the reception don't know anything about tourist information, my brother asked the guy at the reception for some hop on hop off tours and got no response what so ever, It seems that this hotel is not runned by locals, or at least they should act like they know their surroundings.
Another fault in the description is the fact that the wifi is not for free, and the fact that "it's available throughout the building" does not make it open for everyone.
Last, the rooms are super small and the walls are so thin that you can hear footstomps, bed bumps, water-flushing and all sorts of noises at night from the rooms upstairs or besides.
It's sad to get an awful reception from this hotel as we did when staying on an amazing city as London. My recommendation is that you look for a hotel runned by locals that can really bring the bright spirit of London, because there is a whole bunch of kindness lacking in this hotel.
