I've backpacked all over the world, so I am use to staying in cheap accommodation and not expecting much. If I'm honest, this has got to be the least cleanest of them all. The flat has 3 bedrooms, bathroom and a small kitchen, no social area. I felt that the owner of the room had just packed their bags and left, it felt as if no effort had been made to vacuum, dust or clean it, to make sure the light by the bed worked, or to even make the bed nicely.
Good, free WiFi
Good for backpackers who don't expect much
Good communications with Miguel & Alberto
Comfortable bed, and pillows, warm duvet
Less than 5 minute walk to Russell Square tube station
Everything/where smelt of cigarette smoke (I had to wash all my clothes when I got home, my family wouldn't come near me) even clothes that were in my bag that I hadn't worn stunk
Light not working beside bed
Light not working in main communal hallway
Mouse traps in bathroom
Toilet seat broken in bathroom
Mildew on bath tiles
No hot water in the morning (in any of the taps in the bathroom), but only at night
No lock on the bedroom door
Breeze coming through bedroom window that I couldn't close (my hand came away covered in a thick layer of dust)
I had asked Miguel if the sheet and duvet cover would be clean before I got there, he assured me they would be. When I looked at the pillows they looked like they had mould on the cases, so I spent the two nights sleeping with a towel over them, if I had had my own sleeping bag, I probably would have slept in that.
I'm sorry for this horrible feedback but it's honest. I've only given it a 1 star because it wouldn't let me submit the feedback otherwise.
