Has anyone used Stasher.com for left luggage?

My daughter and I will be in London next weekend and we want to stash our bags at/near St. Pancras on Sunday morning before our mid-afternoon Eurostar to Paris. (We're staying at an Airbnb in Camden, so it's not practical to leave our stuff there.)

I looked at the prices for Excess Baggage at St. Pancras and almost fainted. Their website is quoting me £25 for five hours and they have horrible reviews, too. Thought about using the lockers at the British Library, but it doesn't open until 11 and we want to do a walking tour that starts then.
So, further investigation led me to a website called stasher.com, which apparently contracts with local businesses (hotels and others) to provide storage for about half the price of the in-station extortionists. Has anyone used stasher.com? I searched for it here in the forum and don't see any reports. Thanks!

It took me a bit of time to track down who we used. We did not use City Stasher. We used BAGBNB (www.bagbnb.com) which worked fine. We also considered City Stasher but BAGBNB had a location closer to Victoria Station that also happened to be just down the street from where we were purchasing SIM cards for our phones. The only reason for choosing BAGBNB was location. I have no reason to believe City Stasher would not work as well.

Thanks, Bob. I looked at BAGBNB (great name!) and I like its interface better than Stasher.com, plus it's a pound less per bag, so I'm going to give it a try. I'm happy to see they have a location in Liverpool, too. Viva disruption, at least in this case --looks like a good way for mom-and-pop businesses to make a few extra quid.

We used Stasher last year and it worked fine. I might do an internet search to see if there were any recent complaints others have posted. It works, although I admit that it may feel a bit odd leaving your luggage at a convenience store or one of the other locations that are part of the system.

I'm just back (belatedly) to report good experiences with Bagbnb in Liverpool (at a youth hostel) and London (at a convenience store; yes, that did feel a little weird). And last month, passing through San Diego with a few hours to spare, I used the app again to leave my bag at a cool brewpub a few blocks from the train station (which also is on the Bagbnb network now, but I was catching a Lyft to the airport ...)
