The room was small and basic. Upon arrival I was given a little toiletry bag with shower cap, shampoo, etc. The first morning of my stay I was awoken by the fire alarm and had to vacated the room during the drill. There was no toilet roll in the room when I arrived and had to go down to the cleaning cupboard to ask for a roll. The bathroom is actually a shower room where the sink, toilet and shower are all located in one room with no division. It was fully functional. It is located close to Waterloo Station. I found it a bit expensive for the type of accommodation however the locations was perfect for me, so I was willing to pay.
