Reviewed 23 September 2013

First impression, the place was nicely presented and there seemed to be quiet a few students staying here. Overall the room was good (basic) but very clean and had everything we needed. THe actual layout isn;t really suited to accommodation, you have to go up flights and flights of stairs and in and out of buildings to get to your room.

Now on to the breakfast good selection, but horrible machine tea and coffee, now I don't expect a lot considering we payed 72 quid for a night and breakfast is included, but honestly some of the cooked breakfast was almost in-ediable and it looked like it had been sitting in the hot cabinet for a few hours. My advice either do breakfast well or don't serve it at all and make the room prices cheaper.

Room Tip: Ask for one as close to the entrance as possible, otherwise you will find yourself walking in and ou...

Put aside any concerns you may have over Uni type accommodation. This is clean, well maintained accommodation in an excellent location, close to Euston station and in the lovely leafy Bloomsbury area. Staff are excellent and very helpful. Breakfast is buffet style though reasonably enough, given the low cost, you are limited to the number of cooked items that you can have. Unlimited toast, coffee, tea, juice though. If the weather is good, the dining room has a nice terrace leading off.
So far I have gone only for a room with shared bathroom but have not found this a problem, never had to queue to shower. All rooms have a handbags in.
The kitchens are well equipped with white goods though cutlery and crockery and pans limited. You can collect a mug, tea bags, coffee and sugar from reception for free so you can brew up any time.

Room Tip: There isn't really any road noise as this is located down a quiet street but front and high are...

Just a few minutes walk from euston station, a clean room with plenty of furniture and plenty of choice for breakfast at £43 a night. It's a basic room with a desk, phone, wardrobe, bed and sink - TV is in the common room in the basement. Bathrooms were shared, but toiletries and small towel provided, although I noticed that despite staying 2 nights, I was only given bathroom supplies for one day. Breakfast over the weekend is served 8-10am. Unfortunately I had to leave earlier than that on Sunday and they would not do me a take-away breakfast or let me take more stuff the day before. Also, the breakfast is limited to 6 items, and I've no idea how they count the 6 items because everyone seemed to have more than me. Noise in the room can be a problem - can clearly hear people in the hall and next door - and even when they plug in electricals or turn the tap on! However, for the price I would not hesitate to stay there again.

This is a great place to stay if you only need somewhere to put your head down for a few nights.
Stayed 2 nights in a single room - nice staff, place is clean, the bed comfortable, decent breakfast and, above everything - amazing location. You're within walking distance of Oxford Street and with great transport links nearby to get you anywhere you need to go. And for £40/night.
Could not fault it for what it is, would definitely stay again.

That was really great: Freshly brewed coffee for breakfast instead of machine stuff. The room was a bit worn and my stay would have been most enjoyable had I known the advice I give at the end (i.e. garden side). The staff was polite and helpful, even giving ideas for future stays in town. A Boris bike station close by with easy access to the sights around (get yourself the newest "cycling in Central London" and docking stations maps before going bonkers in the oneway system). The WLAN was free at my stay though the registration process was a bit cumbersome. Worth a try.

Room Tip: No lift to third floor. Ask for garden side (quieter and not so much heating up during the day)

The staff at Passfield has gone above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate my mobility handicap. The building is old and not ideally suited for disabled but with their help I have made a go of it. Don't expect a 5 star hotel, this is a COLLEGE DORM. You can rent wifi connection, but there is no air conditioning and no TV's in the room. I stayed here in August and September 2013 and was quite comfortable with an electric fan operating in my room. It is located very near Euston train station with many connected bus routes making it very convenient to get around London. It is in a quiet neighborhood (unless they are doing remodeling nearby) and there are shops and restaurants nearby.

My wife & I just spent a weekend at Passfield Hall, and doubt if we could have found better accommodation in London for anywhere near this price. Everywhere, from the rooms, communal areas like showers, and the dining areas were clean and well maintained. The showers were good, and there was always plenty hot water, and clean towels provided.
The choice and quality of the breakfast was good with more than enough selection of both cooked items and cereals/fruit etc to suit us. They do get a bit off if you dont take all your breakfast items at once.
The location is great too - handy for Euston, Euston Square, Russell Square and not too far from Kings Cross - plus the many restaurants in the area, and attractions such as the British Museum and Foundling Museum.
If you don't mind the fact that rooms are not en suite, don't have double beds or televisions this is great accommodation at a great price.
