5 out of 5

One of the best hostels in London

Pros: location, cleanliness, facilities, value, wifi
Location: Tube stops are Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Circus. The British Museum is within walking distance, as is Piccadilly Circus.
I have stayed there twice during early 2017. Sohostel is a great location, clean, with very good facilities and very good value for the money. The lounge/dining/entertainment area is quite good, with a kitchen menu available during the evenings. The bathroom and shower facilities were clean and well-maintained. A very interesting and friendly group of young people were the visitors. Generally meet someone new at breakfast. The location made it easy to reach several different tube lines within a less than 10 minute walk. The rooms are not large, but you don't spend much time in your room. Wifi worked through whole building.

Very nice hostel experience. Clean and up to date

Pros: Location, cleanliness, low cost.
Cons: Soap or shampoo dispensers in showers.
Location: Very good. Could walk to Oxford Circus, and took tube to Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, and V&A Museum.
I had an extended stay while traveling and working in London. Rooms were a little small, but the common area was great, and the people were helpful. Location was very good, in Soho near Oxford Street. Short walk to Tottenham Court Road tube station. Several places to eat nearby.
