The landlord at Tennyson House is a nice guy who is ready to make your stay enjoyable

Charles, Swazi

Staying at Tennyson House was great. I'd definitely recommend it for anyone looking for quiet single accommodation without the price of a hotel. It's more like a guest room at your uncle's place or one of your favourite relatives. I was actually going to O2 when I booked my accommodation. I found Tennyson House a bit far from the venue but I managed just fine with the bus and underground rail system

Andy Fisher, British

This is a properly basic hotel, with shared bathrooms, squeaky beds and generally a low-rent décor etc. It’s not the worst place in the world and the location nearish Walthamstow tube station couldn’t be that much more convenient. Everything worked, but the cleanliness could have been better and it really is budget. For the price, that’s understandable but certainly next time I think I’ll spend a little more

Luke, English

Tennyson House was cheap for london. Friendly lad running the place

Daniel, Spanish

This London hostel is cheap and quiet, I recommend it, it has the under/overground 10 minutes walking, that is really nice! Around the hostel only there are houses, don't shop or supermarket, it is bad. The hostel is comfortable and quiet
