Good value no frills student accommodation especially suitable for single travellers.
Mr Richard C

We stayed for two weeks. It is just by Victoria station so, very well communicated. The room has just what one needs.Comfortable bed. And the common room was great to have some tea, or something when coming back for a long day. Very nice and helpful staff. And so peaceful at night! In the middle of everything and yet so quiet to have a great rest. Thank you to C.Fontaine from UCL for her help! I wouldn't think of any other place to stay. Planning to go back as soon as we can.
Ms Belen M
