  • I am glad that there are cheap options like this in London- I paid very little as London prices go for a private bedroom- but- I had to report that my lights weren't coming on on my first night, and that was apparently down to the leaking ceiling, so I was moved to another bedroom, that didn't have wifi access (the first room had had weak signal). Couldn't hire a towel- only option to buy for £8. I would definitely say that this place is all right, a bit rough around the edges but cheap

  • I was looking for something cheap & close to the city. No. 8 was so cheap I was initially a bit worried about what the quality would be. I'd booked a single room and it turned out to be great. The room had heating, shelves, a bar fridge, window & (basically) made up bed. There was one bathroom per floor with two separate showers & communal sinks & hairdryer. They got a bit grotty but we're cleaned daily. Reception was manned early till late & they offered clothes washing & drying for £7.50.

  • Just two things: There aren't no employees in the reception or other place, between 12:00 pm and 8:30 am. It is impossible to check out early. There was RATS in the common kitchen. I saw it.

  • Showers and toilets were generally good, but it took half a week to repair one of the two shower/toilet cubicles on the first floor, during which time lines of impatients were intermittently forming. There was, however, more capacity on the ground floor. I appreciated having my own fridge in my single room.

  • They don't take cards, with good reason I'm sure, was glad I had enough cash to pay as the cash dispenser in reception was not working. Could have been awkward.
