    Safestay was awesome for traveling with a large group! They accommodated us very well upon arrival, even though booking was complicated. Location is not the best but everything else is great. It is very clean and there is a lot of room for socializing.

    The atmosphere is amazing, the location near to Elephant and Castle Station (underground) helps to move by subway. The staff is helpful and the price is cheap. I liked of my stay in Safestay and I recommend to my friends.

    It was perfect for what I needed. Easy travel straight into the city centre, close to many food outlets, and a comfortable bed for the night. It was quite warm in the rooms at night, which may have been helped with some fans
