Badly managed
Went on Monday 28th July 2014. Got there around 10pm. I was warned that there was only one other person inside. I still went in & left half hour later. I was advised that Tuesday ( next day ) would be busy with free pizza @ 7pm.
I got there @ 8pm. Time advertised for the place to close was midnight. By about 9pm there were about 8 people left. Around 10pm there were about 4 of us left.
I must add the rooms downstairs were filthy. Looks like they had not been cleaned since opening that evening. I could not believe the amount of used lube was on floor. To me it was disgusting. I can understand why people are put off by going. It really was filthy!! Doesn't take much to clean.
I was about to go downstairs & was advised that it was closed. That was about 10.10pm.
The 2 guys working seemed to want to get out quick. On my way out it was 10.20pm & the counter part was all shut up & looked very closed to me.
If they wish to close early why not advertise on their website.
Do these guys realise who is paying their wage??
I live abroad & have been going for the last 7 years when coming on holiday. This must be my worst experience. If they wish to stay open then employ people that want to work. When advertising opening & closing times stick to them.
It looks VERY BADLY managed to me.
My past times have always been good, with guys coming in @ 8pm & later. Due to filth & desperate to closing early I can see why people would avoid this place.

My favourite location

.. always attract a large crowd ...
- UPDATE - (10. October 2013)

As a further concession the entry is reduced to £10 if you arrive before 11am on Mondays to Thursdays.

- UPDATE - (19. June 2013)

Since the price increased to £15 and there is no free coffee or tea as previously, there is a marked drop in attendance. This can be particularly noticeable on the Bear's Day on Tuesdays. Concessions still apply.

- UPDATE - 23/01/11

Basic entry has now increased by 50p to £12.50 with concessions at £10.50. Still good value compared with some of the other saunas.

ORIGINAL REVIEW - (06. September 2008)

Take a train to Streatham Station (NOT Streatham Hill) from London Bridge or any station on the Sutton Branch of First Connect. Left turn out of the Station and walk up the road until you come to a small park, turn left into this park and walk up to the top, the sauna is next to you on your left. Alternatively you can take bus 159 from Whitehall/Westminster Bridge to Streatham and get off at the small park which is on your right (Babbington Road).

This is quite popular venue for those who live to the South of the River. The clientèle are of all ages. If your are 60 or over, you can obtain a £2 reduction on the entrance charge on producing your Freedom Pass or a Passport. 

The sauna is on three floors with the steam, saunas and Jacuzzi on the ground floor and cubicles, darkrooms, porno video on the basement and first floors. Much of the action takes place in the steam room and darkrooms.

Special events which always attract a large crowd, are the Bears' Days every Tuesday and the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month, when free refreshments are supplied in the evenings - it is a good idea to get there early in the afternoon before the bears get too tired ;) 

"Dark Steam" on Fridays can also be quite busy. The bar serves free coffee/tea and biscuits at all times.
