  1. 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!“

  2. 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.“

  3. I paid £17 to be bored and feel unclean....

    “I did not go to Sailors thinking It, would be full of hunks. However at the same time, I did hope for better than there only being one other person than myself. I know it only takes one to have a fun afternoon, but the only other person there could not make it down the steps to the dark room…..
    I feel charging £17 is out of touch with the standards of this place. It’s a just about clean, dull couple of rooms and a telly.
    So overall I felt I had wasted £17, and an hour of my life I will never get back. Only to rush home to have a shower to make myself feel clean again.“

  6. 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 ;-)“

  7. No alternative

    “Thought I'd give it a go as often visited the now closed Chariots Shoreditch, very disappointed, only a handful of guys in the place and it stank, not sure if it has problems with the drains. Not all that clean, would definitely recommend management visit the Pink Broadway sauna in Southampton, which in my opinion is the best and cleanest in the south. Will definitely not waste £17 on Sailors again.“

  8. 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.“

  10. 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.“

  11. first time visit

    “I recently found myself at a loose end as far as wanting to visit a sauna was concerned as my 'local' Chariots in Shoreditch sadly had to close down due to a hotel having to be built. So after much research I decided to try out Sailors.

    To cut a long story short i was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't busy but that didn't mean i didn't have any fun.The staff are friendly and polite the place was clean and tidy as one would expect.They also serve food on Sunday's, apparently included on the entrance fee.

    Congratulations to Sailors on a good time I had and I will more than likely make this my new local.“

  12. 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“
