Property Description

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.

Latest Review

" After having read the reviews for this place, I thought it would be a real rat hole, but it was fine. Nothing was too loud. Everything was pretty clean. The beds were sort of like prison beds, but the toilets were functional and the showers were hot and private enough. The bar next door was pretty cool and cheap, and all the other lodgers seemed to be extremely considerate. It wasn't the party hostel I thought it would be. Overall, it was a nice place to stay. Don't bother with breakfast though. "
