Super room (even for student accommodation). Very clean shared shower and toilet rooms. Discovered a lovely roof terrace next to my room where I sat and had breakfast. Building is stunning. Surrounding area is lovely to stroll around.

The staff was nice but the room is hot and window only opens a small amount. The dining hall is in a different building that is Across the Square.

Really quiet in a central location, although I was told the weekend is different, but during the week great. Nice green surroundings. Friendly staff. The shower in the room I was in, was in need of regrouting, but otherwise modern rooms and safe feel. Comfy matress.

This place is a gem! If you are ready to graduate from hostel dorms but still would rather not pay London hotel prices - this is the place for you. A private room but shared facilities (bathroom, showers), though they also have ensuite options, is really fairly priced and provides you the comfort of your own private space (bed, desk, closet, mini-fridge, sink) to relax in. Since it is a college there is food on site (breakfast, lunches, dinners) that you can access, is good food, and very fairly priced. The space was clean, quiet, safe, and an easy walk from either King's Cross/St Pancras or Russell Square. As a female solo traveller I felt completely safe walking back from Russell Square in the dark at night. The staff were excellent - very helpful. I have found my new go-to London accommodation and know I will be back many more times.

It is a beautiful property and the room very clean. The location is excellent near small shopping centre and close to King's Cross, Holborn, Marylebone. Was very convenient and quite reasonably priced. Downsides are that it is a single bed and the room has no aircon which made it uncomfortably hot in 34 degrees

It’s a Student halls of residence not a hotel, so you adjust your expectations according, and Goodenough Accommodations was perfect for what I needed. Lovely staff, and great walkable location and safe and clean room.

I have been coming to the Goodenough club for a number of years now and it is my preferred accommodation whenever I am in London. The value for money is outstanding along with the central location and friendliness of the staff. I like this accommodation very much.

Interesting but not luxurious to be in old college setting (old dorm room) and a great location in Bloomsbury. Comfortable accommodations and courteous staff.
