Nice central location, friendly staff, clean facilities. Room had no windows, and the air conditioner quit on us first night. Wifi was useless.

I've given London Central a higher rating in the past, but on this visit the only bed available in my dorm was in a corner with only a few inches between the accessible edge of the bed and the wall. In order to make it an ensuite room, there was a little rectangular space left over, just enough to squeeze in an extra bunk bed -- you have to shuffle sideways to get into the lower bunk. Claustrophobic and uncomfortable. This should really be a room for four people, not six.
