Property Information:

18-35 ONLY



If you want new facilities, new mattresses and private showers we strongly advise you to book elsewhere!

If you want to experience and be a part of a social & informal atmosphere with positive people along with the fastest free Wi-Fi in London, a cheap bar, cheaper condoms and all in an excellent convenient location, then we look forward to seeing you soon.

Don’t be fooled by other hostels with similar prices as us; they’ll screw you over on everything else once they get you in the door! Don’t be fooled by hostels with higher rates either; they’re worse!

We focus on you and not the money in your pocket. Viva la revolución!

We are only 2 stops from King’s Cross St Pancras station! By the time it takes you to get out of Kings Cross Station and walk to the hostels in that area, you would already be checked into our hostel and having a beer in our bar. We are only 5 minutes’ walk from the nearest station. Sweet!

We have the largest social area of any hostel in London, its big enough to find your own private area when you want to chill and lots of people in it when you don’t. It ticks all the boxes. With a stage for live music, large cinema screen, free pool tables, free table tennis and a PlayStation 4 you will never be bored. Did we mention the free superfast Wi-Fi throughout the hostel?

And we just keep getting better….

Unique to the hostel, Stoke Newington’s Church Street with independent restaurants, pubs, shops and cafes serving the best coffee in London are only a 10 minute walk from the hostel. When you get bored of Shoreditch, check out Stokey.

We are only minutes away from the night-life of Camden, Holloway, Dalston and Hoxton. Awesome!

Arsenal Football Club and the Emirates Stadium is only 5 minutes’ walk away. Our bar and the hostel are a great place to be on match days. Carnage!

Going to a gig or event at the Alexandra Palace? We are only 20 minutes by bus away from the Ally Pally!

Direct links to Heathrow Airport

We are big on security and provide lockers free of charge and CCTV throughout the hostel.

    You will take from this hostel an opinion depending on what you want out of your stay in London. It is great value for money, in zone 2, and a 5 min walk to the tube. The rooms are not the nicest, but everything was clean enough if not just a little rough around the edges - but I cannot complain for the price I paid for its amazing location. The staff were really welcoming and friendly, facilities all worked, and I managed to get 2 good nights sleeps without disturbances.
