I loved the Location, very near to a lot of Restauraunts the Russel Square Tube Station as well as Tesco. The Morning Staff was very welcoming, lively and super sweet. Check Out was easy peasy. Wonderful people and the Neighbourhood felt safe. That sums it all.
The Evening Staff could have used a Smile at the least. The Beds were ok but broken and non functional Electric Plug. Breakfast could be a lil more creative. The WiFi is dead slow and almost not reachable to my Bed but was there to spend just a night so not complaining.
I've worked for three days in the British Museum, the hostel was almost next door. Perfect.
The staff were really helpful and even though there is a maximum stay they are willing to accommodate you within thier discretion
Perfect location for meeting up and socialising and good location for libraries , museums and art & musical shows. Theatres!
Great location, just 5 min walk to Underground station and friendly staffs
The twin room is too small. I and my friend could not open our luggages at the same time!!
Location is good, close to shops, restaurants, transit options, etc. The common space had usb outlets, which made charging devices easy without having to lug around a power converter.
The bed was enclosed on five sides right up next to the mattress, which in practice meant I felt claustrophobic and every time I moved I ended up elbowing or kicking the sides. There are no lockers available in the rooms, and those available downstairs of course require payment and they didn't even have the large ones available when I asked. The bathroom is absolutely tiny and the light is motion detection only, which in practice meant if anyone was using it at night, the room was well-lit. When one roommate was doing this from about midnight until three in the morning it was quite annoying.
With a stay at Smart Russell Square Hostel in London (London City Centre), you'll be a 3-minute walk from Russell Square and 8 minutes by foot from The British Museum. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and laundry facilities.
