  1. Sterile Metallic Cold

    “Sweatbox after the renovations is top, but the decor, design and set up is 1970s, best defined as cold, metallic and sordid.
    Yes, it’s clean.
    Yes, its staff is polite and professional.
    Yes, the location is perfect.
    Yet, it’s not a cosy place.
    It doesn’t offer a warm and comfortable atmosphere.
    Its setup is disjointed.
    The tv and the “bar” are part of the reception area.
    TV programmes are the typical lame gayish stereotypical programmes.
    The old TVs showing adult films in the corridors have vanished. If adult films are no longer possible, put on some TV sets and show clips or something. Bring some life to the corridors and contours.
    It’s sad the place improved from a logistical and hygienic perspective, yet it lacks the flash and the action, essential ingredients a gay person looks for in a sauna.“

  2. newly refurbished!!!????

    “I live in London for almost a decade , this sauna really needed a refurbishment, it was done from last year, but in my opinion the results were worse than before. They tried to give a modern appearance that could be good, however from the first week after the expected reopening, many failures in water drainage, in the steam sauna that works as cruising also, the water was flooded on the floor; in the second basement, you could feel that are under a rain, because inside of the cabins and glory holes the water is dropping constantly that was a nightmare for users. Few months ago they closed the showers area for repair works, it was ok because there are other showers in the second basement; actually they closed the steam area for repair works again, leaving a tiny place for users. However the entrance prices are the same and the users do not enjoy the facilities at 100%, this issue should be mentioned at the reception and offering a discount for the inconvenience caused. It is a shame that after they made a big investment for refurbish the results were not satisfactory for users. The staff team is better that before, now they are new workers, very friendly and polite.“

  3. Good relax in London

    “Very good sauna actually. Spacious and clean enough. Staff super friendly and cleaning work happening all the time. Just the fire doors are a little confusing for new people.
    Lots of hot guys and actions. I think half 20-35 and the other half older.“

  4. Claustrophic

    “I can see why they call it sweat box.
    The air is uncomfortably hot in there. The whole place feels claustrophobic and stuffy. The Cain's are the tiniest I've seen in a sauna. The security system is a bit over the top, which adds to the feeling of entering some strange world that you can't escape from.
    Sorry to sound negative. Lots of hot guys there btw. “

  5. Nice, friendly, crowd

    “The size of the place is medium big. I attended several times during a month long visit to London.

    Every time I attended it was pretty busy, large variety of guys, from all sizes and ages.

    The first floor has jaccuzi and A gym.

    It has a sauna in the -1 floor. It has several rooms so you can walk around or just chill. If you don’t like what you see you can just walk to another room which sometimes I appreciate it. I must say that one of the deeper rooms tended to smell like urine but as long as you were not there, it was gone. However in general the place is modern and clean.

    There are some cruising cabins in the -2 floor as well as some darks rooms, fetish room, and showers. There is enough to find one empty whenever you need it. Lube and condoms everywhere which is nice as well.

    The staff was super friendly all the time and they try to avoid drug consumption which I appreciate as well.

    They have hairdryers in the lockers.“

  6. Refurbishment Not Done well

    “I went last Sunday, asked to put valuables in a box at reception which I guess is good considering you're putting the rest in a cage which was exposed and didn't feel safe. I don't get it, why can't they just have a proper Locker. Prices are good in comparison to other London Sauna with the passes. Then the confusion starts, you have to give key in, in exchange for an arm band, then you go through a revolving gate. This you must do all the time if coming back out. Then you don't have access to your belongings until you leave.

    So if you have plans and need to get contacted by somebody forget it. It was hot and humid as it has always been before the refurb. No flip flops as is normal in the UK but it was dirty and nobody cleans. one floor down you have steam room which is narrow and claustrophobic. Only one person can pass at a time and its total mayhem. Showers on that floor not working and tiles missing off the steam room bench area. Downstairs gets even worse, small suspended cabins, dirty as nobody was cleaning, limited showers for amount of people and once again very hot and humid, bad ventilation and it smelt musty and mouldy.

    A maze of confusion and door open door close scenario. Probably a fire hazard precaution. Would have been simpler to design a more open area instead of such narrow passageways. I bought a 48 hour pass, but threw it away for the second day. Never going back again. They advertise that after 17 May, there is Dean Street presence for sexual health screening and advise you to call to check. After several attempts to call, I eventually got through and the guy I spoke to didn't know what Dean Street was and then replied no, they don't come here anymore. It's a shame, as I really enjoyed this place and was hoping with so much money spent, it would be best sauna in London.“

  7. Disappointed

    “First at the arrival staff at the reception was nice and friendly. I didn't like having to put my phone in a box and leaving at the reception. The lockers are just small cages it didn't feel very save leaving any valuable there.
    They don't give you a flipflop to walk around. Downstairs toilets and shower area were smelling very bad. I didn't see any cleaning going on for the whole night. in the basement a lot of leaking of water dropping even inside of the cubicles from the ceiling.
    I hated walking in a barefoot in so much dirty. Shower gels were all empty and it was just bottles thrown on the floor.
    Gym was closed.

    I won't come back!“

  9. Good facilities but basement area soaking wet from leaks

    “Full on checking in process, quite complex and confusing.

    Great huge facilities, however the basement area where the cubicles, glory holes, sling, small dark area was sopping wet from leaks above. Floors wet, all paper hand towel rolls were soaking wet.

    We went 3 days in a row, hit and miss for action. Busy place.

    Great value for a 48 hour or 7 day entry pass option.“
