5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Excellent location. Helpful staff.
Excellent position. Within walking distance of the Royal Albert Hall, where I was visiting. My room was above the entrance. There were notices that asked guests not to make a loud noise after 10pm & the first 3 nights if my stay, people were talking outside which kept me awake so I mentioned this to reception the next day & it was stopped thereafter.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Decent except for the lockers.
Good service and location. The beds were 3 high bunk beds but the first one was on the floor. This was my bed and it was a bit wierd being on the floor. One of the bottom bunks replaced with the lockers, which would be fine, however whoever installed them was an idiot. 2 of the lockers were placed behind the ladders that go to the above bunks which were bolted and welded in place so they couldn't swing on the hinges that they could have. This resulted in not being able to access 2 of the lockers.
