Limited Facilities

Been here several times and quite honestly, I would not bother. The price is £18, same as the far better Pleasuredome and Sweatbox. It is not the cleanest of saunas and only has one tiny steam room and sauna. The top two floors are just cubicles, empty mostly! Hardly ever any clientele in here and with out seeming ageist and sizes, I found none under 60 and all overweight!


Hit and miss and more expensive than others in London

Sauna can be hit or miss. Dead quiet at times and the upstairs Porn cinema is almost always closed other than a Saturday night. Downstairs porn cinema smells of drains. Not nice. At £17 it's not cheap and although members get in for £15 - it is not possible to become a member even when you are a regular there up to 3 times a week! Insane. They only allow 40 members in a city of 8 million? Bizarre. They could offer reduce entry at quieter times to entice customers in but that suggestion falls on deaf ears. There is better out there.



I left a heavy silver ring on top of the locker when going home.... Called the next day and guess what: they found it and kept it safe for me.. I grealty appreciated the honesy and service



I like that sauna very much friendly staff and very clean. I like the cleaner that work there.


Friendly and unpretentious.

Today is going to be my fourth visit here. The guys at reception are incredibly friendly which makes a huge difference, and most importantly the place is very clean. Oh! and the short older man who i think is the manager... very handsome ;-)


Friday and Saturdays

Havent been here in 8 years. Whole layout has changed for the better, much cleaner than any other gay sauna I know of. Friday to saturday is the best with free food put out in evening so you dont go hungry, music is set just right, friendly atmosphere from everyone. I go every Friday now make new friends catch up on gossip. There is someone for everyone here. Must for anyone visiting london or a local visit for guys more regular. Hope to see you there.


5* at Economy price

The place was a lot bigger than I thought it would be, the cleanliness and customer service was to a high standard. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!!


Worked for me

This is the first gay sauna I have visited. There was certainly a range of types, including guys I was very into (and who were also thankfully into me). Got my jollies off pretty easily, and had to employ the word "no" a few times too. I'd definitely go back.


Music levels

First time I went I was pleased the Irish man at the door explained the layout and I wandered royund the floors which were open. all was very clean though the music could be a bit loud at times but upstairs was quiet and relaxing so I thought I would come again. different guy on the door but very pleasant again. this time however the music was also upstairs still no problem but then the music (all over the sauna) would fluctuate from being pleasant background to extremely unpleasantly loud then back again. at 7 pm I went to the front desk to ask if they were aware this was happening (politely) and there was a different younger continental (?) guy there who was so rude and arrogant said I should have left if it was so bad so I did and will not go there again thanks to his attitude. such a shame as the other staff tried so hard to make it a pleasant experience which it was til then so im afraid because of him the sevice gets marked down. sorry guys
