Pros: The hotel is very cheap for London.
It had fairly late check-in (10:30pm when I arrived), but apparently open until 11. The rooms were tolerably furnished - cheap flatpack stuff which doesn't fit together properly, but it mostly worked. They had a kettle, TV, bar fridge and small wardrobe. Cons: basically everything else. The place reeks of cigarettes, despite the ironic no smoking sign downstairs. All my clothes smelled afterwards, and needed to be washed. The stairs are perilously steep, especially with big bags. The rooms were very hot (as reported by another guest), and loads of insects come in if you open the window
There were regularly drunk elderly customers out the back of the house, and one passed out in the middle of the stairs (blocking the narrow staircase). The bathrooms are shared, and get quite dirty at peak times (morning, evening). They also particularly stink of smoke. Overall:
I would definitely go for a nice hostel even if the prices were the same - you still have to share bathrooms, and good hostels won't be nearly as disgusting to stay in. As this place is twice the price of most hostels, it's really a no-brainer as to where you should go.
Good value for money
The place isn't hard to find, Jim the host was incredibly polite and nice, made us feel welcome.
The room was a decent size. All in all it was a nice quick stay, can't complain
It is a good place.
Unfortunately we haven't had hot water at all. They have had some problems with the boiler.
Great little hotel if you're looking for something cheap overnight or a few day in London.
We stayed over for a night out at 'The Nest' in Dalston.
Homely atmosphere budget hotel
I stayed 10 days at the Amhurst hotel.
Nice sympathetic staff. Specially Jim, the manager who's been really helpful. Two kitchens (downstairs and upstairs) to cook own meals. A warm living room. Bathrooms were clean. Simple basic room with a normal bed, wardrobe, sink and a good heating. Good value for money in London.
The hotel was average but what made the stay worst was the manager was very disrespectful to me on my arrival.
I will not be going back there again.
Just the Job
The location made this Ideal for the area's of North London and the City I visited,
Very lovely building.
room was clean and comfortable, a little bit cold. But non the less really pleased with the stay. Staff very friendly and happy to help.
Good late deal, but dodgy room
It was a budget room, but I still have to leave a bad review - the shared bathrooms were nice but the room was old and not very nice.
The TV didn't work (the aerial jack was was broken) the room was freezing even with the heating on full (I ended up sitting on the floor leaned up against the radiator). Also the mug provided was dirty on arrival. Simple things that shouldn't be an issue... Besides for that it's alright?
