The hostel is clean, close to a big station. The breakfast is poor. Staff is very nice and helpful. The only problem is that it is a little bit far from central London. However, it is very good for The value, when compared to other hostels.

Loved the hostel! It was friendly, fun and welcoming. There was a great buzz and it couldn't be in a better location.

Very good location (close to King's Cross St Pancras) for a good price. Free breakfast, but only toast, milk and butter.

My only problem was the fact that shower in my twin room was very dirty. It looked like no one bothered to clean it for weeks.

The hostel is 2 blocks from kings cross which is nice for grabbing the tube, but other than that there's not much worthwhile within walking distance. There is only wifi in the common areas which was a little annoying. The rooms were clean though so nothing to complain about there, and lockers were provided (but you have to bring your own lock). The reception desk could have been more efficient and helpful though.

I would not recommend this hostel to anyone. The rooms were incredibly hot and stuffy and insanely loud at night. The bathrooms were gross and uncomfortable, as the shower and toilet were in the same stall, just separated by a curtain. Staff was overwhelmed every time I was at the front desk, they definitely need more than one person working. One staff member wouldn't help me when I asked for directions and told me to "come back later" as he flirted with another guest instead. Don't stay here!

Had a private room. Very small - bathroom quite dirty. No towels included - had to buy one. Everything was a money grab. Check out at 10 am - should be 11. Breakfast that was included in stay was horrible - no water or juice. Just toast. Should not be considered a complementary breakfast. Have to do your own dishes.

The location was excellent! 1 minute walk away from King's cross station. Staff was nice and helpful too.

3 minutes' walk from the King's Cross station. BUT the long stairs are really a great challenge for whose who carry lots of luggage.

The hostel is great. But I stayed in a room just for girls. Thanks god is wasn't with full capacity because it was only two showers and sinks for more than ten girls! It was busy all the time. The environment is really good and comfortable.

Having to use the key to exit the stairwell and building are a massive pain. As well, the key fob stopped working 3 different times while I was staying, trapping me in the stairs. There is no way to contact reception from here. I also see this as a massive fire hazard, because the exits to the building are locked. If there was a fire, everyone would be trapped inside.
