the hostel is good with a good value for the money, it's not that clean but good compared to price, wonderful staff, and free bread and rice whole day.
We stayed at the room on the top floor, this is not a good option since alot of people party at the roof top. And our roomies didnt really care about anyone trying to sleep. No lockers in this room and no AC, so the door was pretty much open all day. Ok shower, clean linen, wifi only works for like 5 ppl at a time, no ladders to bunks, tiny kitchen. Alot of noise from the street. If you decide to stay here, bring your earplugs and eyemask thing.
The place was fairly dirty in general. I stayed in an eight bedroom dorm which was an absolute tip. There was no space anywhere to put my bag in the room. There was also only 6 lockers for 8 people so I never felt safe leaving my things in the room. Alot of long termers who aren't very friendly and treat the place like their own personal hotel. Wifi was poor and they would only type in the password. Wouldn't allow you to have it! Location was central in Kings Cross. Very loud and 'lively'!
Decent enough location and value for money. Lacking a bit on the cleanliness side and the kitchen facilities were fairly inadequate but the staff were very friendly and helpful.
One of the staff members ( joe) was incredibly helpful whenever I asked for anything but the others didn't seem to go out of their way to help with anything I asked. The bed was the most uncomfortable thing I've ever slept on. They should have at least had sheets in plave before i saw all the stains overing the mattress. The bathroom was moldy and had a ceiling leak that was constantly making everything wet. Can't beat the location, which is usually all I care aboutbut I would never stay again.
