We really liked our stay at journeys! It is quite small but its nice and cosy. The staff are really friendly and very helpful! It's in a great location and very close to the station! Would definitely recommend to others :)
This is an expensive hostel,a dark gloomy place with bunks three high and no storage facilities in your room..... In the 40 or so hostels I have stayed at this is the worst one that i have been too.......Unlesss you are desperate DON,T stay here......
Wifi kept dying. So many fire doors it was basically a maze. Wifi only available in the basement. The bed I had was almost impossible to get into, it was a middle bunk with a stepladder into it, but then -another- stepladder was superimposed over it to the higher bunk. Some dodgy people in the hostel. Friendly and polite staff
The rooms are very crow, bed are to close, no space to put your things, no lookers.
Having the location next to kings cross station was nice. The security for baggage is a bit of a concern since everyone's bag gets locked into one room, as opposed to individual lockers. Showers were abit rough but overall it was a pleasant visit.
Good for somewhere to sleep, but I wouldn't want to spend much more time there. Very cramped and noisy, many of the doors slam whenever they're let to close, so all I could hear all night was constant slamming from people around the hostel.

Very small! showers didn't work. No atmosphere, okay for a night if you're passing through but wouldn't recommend if you're on holiday.
Never seen triple decker bunk beds before. Other than that is a decent enough placw to stay cheaply with good tube links
Very secure location, need to be buzzed in. Location was right down the street from St. Pancras. Staff was helpful and inclusive. The problem I had: my room had a big leak in the ceiling and since it was "staff picnic" no one was around to fix it until the next day. Other than that an alright place to stay.
I was very happy with my stay, many thanks to the staff.

A lovely Hostel. Very central. Near Kings Cross, what was great for our Harry Potter holliday. Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Only one night was annoying with some really loud Asians who turned up at 1 am, but that was acceptable, as we stayed in a 9 bed Dorm. A bit expensive but what would one expect from London ;) All in all whe had a lovely stay.
