I was not looking for much when I booked this room, i needed a cheap place for one night that was clean and would allow me to sleep. Unfortunately, this hostel failed to provide either sleep or cleanliness. I was upgraded to a single with privat bathroom instead of a single with shared bathroom, which was nice but the room...

Dear Racheal_F12, Please accept our most sincere apologies for the experience you had while staying with us at Bankside House.

We enjoyed our short stay at LSE Bankside and found it generally very satisfactory, welcoming and well-run. There appeared to be no evening meals available, but breakfast was perfectly adequate and offered a good choice of tasty fresh wholesome food. We occupied a first storey room facing the Bankside building site. There seemed to be just a few minor problems...

My husband and I were given a small room with twin beds, but since it was a student residence we weren't surprised, but now that I see other reviews with some people having a full flat even though they booked a twin room, I feel rather disappointed especially since we were there for 4 nights and booked well in advance....

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
