Hostelworld says:

Jolly Swagman Backpackers is a fun, clean, spacious hostel overlooking a plaza on a nice, quiet street only five minutes from the nightlife of King's Cross. It's got everything a backpacker could need, from friendly staff to 'nice party offers with free drinks and great people', according to our guests, many of whom say they'd 'definitely recommend this hostel' and would stay again. We like that they have lots of essential little extras available, such as irons and in-room fridges.
