    City Centre Hostel”

    Not very cheap but I took 6-ppl dorm (female only), city centre of London with a Metro Tesco just a few steps away, free luggage storage, very large locker that can fit a 26" suitcase beneath the bed, individual usb/socket for each bed space...very safe and kinda home-like...so would highly recommend this. The British Museum is nearby also and can walk to the west end, very convinient

    Sohostel is a sprawling mess of rooms located in Soho, Central London. The location is superb, only a few minutes walk from multiple underground stations. There's a supermarket across the road, open 8am-11pm! Prices have crept up, and the value proposition is not as good as it once was. Rooms are kept clean, there's lots of showers with hot water and ok pressure and toilets. Staff are friendly and helpful. Cons: When dorm bed rates are 25-30pounds/night you expect perhaps a little more than a thin piece of foam through which you can feel the metal bunk. Power points at each bed, but no shelf to rest your phone for charging. The breakfast is convenient but expensive - basically just cereal, toast, tea/coffee and yoghourt for 6 pounds. With a captive audience and bulk buying surely they can offer better - a range of fruits, real bread rather than the current cheap sliced offering A school group was staying, 15 year olds, v noisy all night and at breakfast. No attempt made to control.

    Excellent”

    Location is excellent — a 15-minute walk to Trafalgar Square. SoHo is a vibrant neighborhood. I had a pleasant stay and would recommend it to friends. Met some other travelers at the living room, but meeting people here is hit and miss — there are a lot of groups. And this is one of my cons: there are too many groups of very young people who scream, listen to the music, and make phone calls on a loudspeaker in the rooms both late in the night or early in the morning. Another cons is the fact staff couldn't manage my request to change room. I was told the hostel was 100% full for my entire stay, but one of the beds in my room was empty the whole time. Staff is friendly and invited me to play some board games. Overall, I had an enjoyable stay, the location is superb, but there's a younger crowd in groups staying at this hostel which is not the best for a solo traveler.

    Great location, great hostel!”

    My 18 years old daughter stayed 10 days in the hostel and had the most great experience! Location couldn't be better. She walked everywhere. The staff was really nice and food was delicious! There was only a bad smell in the bedroom but they solved the problem by opening the window a bit. They had a karaoke night where she mingled and made new friends... and she is a shy person!! She really loved it and recommends it to everyone!!

    I rreally enjoy staying at the Sohostel when in London. The facilities are excellent, and the location wonderful. My shower was not very hor, so they moved me to a different room until the shower was fixed. I go back there in early January. I would, and do recommend this to family and friends.

    One of the best hostel shower rooms”

    Staff are very helpful and friendly. I've stayed in many different rooms which varied in quality. Some better rooms have very big space with bed light and power station for each bed and the upper bunk is a bit higher than normal (which is good for lower bunk). Some older rooms are crowded and don't have individual light and socket. The best part is that EVERY shower room has an independent door with totally separated wet and dry space and is always very clean. The number of shower rooms and toilets are sufficient so never need to wait. Water is stable and hot. This is fantastic for a London downtown hostel. No kitchen and breakfast costs 6 pounds. But there is a good bar in the communal area and always provide drink water. There is even a room with 5 straighteners and 5 hair dryers with chairs and big mirrors, which are amazing for a hostel! Will definitely recommend friends to stay here if they visit London.

    Noisy and uncomfortable ”

    I will not use SoHostel never again even if I visit London and Soho area again. Everthing was below expectation and money value. The whole environment was extremely noisy while there was practically no effective sound proof (noting that the hostel is in Soho area). I could hear people talking and smell people smoking outside in the street. Even worse, there was much more noise inside the hostel, including lounge bar and karaoke night things. The room and shower facilities could have been improved and spacious at this price. There were always dirties, dusts, someone else’s hairs, etc. in the room floor whenever I went bact to room. The bedroom and shower room were very small and did not provide comfortable spaces at all. So, no satisfaction at all during my stay.

    The only thing concerned is the height (head space) of the lower bed. I need to bend my head when sitting on the bed. The rest is excellent! Location is very strategic. You can either stop at Piccadilly Circus or Oxford Circus via tube. Recommended.

    A hostel, not for older folks!”

    I have given this hostel 5 stars because it deserves it, but my husband and I are in the Social Security set and felt uncomfortable. No one was critical or mean but the average age was in the twenties, I'd say. I read in a review that there is an age limit which we surely violated. Also, the place is laid out like a maze and we were not sure we could get out in case of fire. So if you are young and short of funds, go for it! If older and wanting more comfort, avoid. A word to the wise.

    Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Cons include: early morning construction doesn’t help with sleeping, not all showers and bathrooms are created equally with some not as clean, some showers only running hot water and not all working as they should be. Pros include: Clean rooms, comfortable beds, good social atmosphere and great location.
