    Value for money. It is what it is. Student type accomodation. Large desk. No TV. Excellent quality and quantity continental breakfast

    It was very convenient. The continental breakfast buffet was generous though the quality of the sliced chicken (?), cheese, and croissants was industrial. I applaud LSE for seeking to raise revenue by offering their student accommodation for hire but I really think they need to be a bit more discriminating about the condition of the rooms. There's no way a youth hostel would be this grubby and tired.

    I guess that the Reception staff are more used to dealing with students, some of whom may have an 'attitude' but they could still lighten up a bit. Notwithstanding this being a very inexpensive place to stay, I am a little amazed that students would put up with the standard of decor - carpet tiles peeling from the floor, burns around the wash-hand basin, threadbare and stained chair. There's no tea/coffee facilities in the room, though there's a kitchen elsewhere along the corridor. However, there were no ingredients and a very random selection of mugs and (stolen) glasses. The shower was shared among six people, though you could try venturing further afield and stealing someone else's, but the hook on the back of the door was broken, so your clothes had to sit on the floor and get wet while you showered! But the worst aspect was the noise. The room I was given was on the third floor directly above High Holborn itself. The noise really didn't seem to stop until 2 or 3am and at 6am I was woken by a driver who was impatient with the car in front and let rip with his horn.

    The location is fantastic, two tube stations are very near. In the area there are places where you can eat. It was great that I could store my luggage after check out and the people at reception were very friendly. The breakfast is extremely good for such a hotel.

    This hotel could use some freshing up. Although the room was clean, there were stains on the carpet and the sink was very worn. It is too bad that there is only internet (for a fee) in the public areas.

    Breakfast was quite good. It seemed quite safe and secure.

    The bed was terrible. A metal frame with a five inch, very poor quality mattress.

    Superb

    This is a students room no luxuries but clean, comfortable and cheap. It has shared shower and W.c although it does have a sink in the rooms. Perfect for people staying on their own who want cheep accommadation without the hostel style of sharing a room.

    Cant fault it when only paid £39.00 pp/pn in this location.

    I've been charged for my stay there when I had already paid once through Booked.net. Have asked for the duplicate payment to be returned.

    I liked the location of LSE High Holborn.

    I did not like the breakfast room, in fact we didn't bother to go in for breakfast once we saw the room, very small and spartan.

    Superb

    Reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. When I realised I had printed the wrong return train ticket they let me use their computer and printer free of charge. The building and the room were very clean as were the shared facilities. It's a 5 minute walk away from Holborn tube station and plenty of restaurants, bars and fast food outlets in the vacinty. Also, LSE is next to Oasis pool and leisure centre if you fancy some exercise. Fantastic value for central London. The room was light and airy and had a wardrobe, desk and single bed... all you need if you just want somewhere to lay your head.

    Excellent locations, really friendly staff, definitely the best place for a single person on a budget. I couldn't believe how good it was for the money! IT was also really quiet, which I wasn't expecting! 3mins from Covent Garden for 30-odd quid? Amazing.
