With the price you pay, you can't expect luxury. Ok breakfast is minimal and beds not so confortable. However the location is excellent and the staff welcoming. Good value for money

The property show signs of neglect. Beds are ancient and springing loud. Bathroom/toilet not large enough to fit a European male. Owner/Manager(?) seemed more interested in messages on mobile than the customer. Breakfast primitive - called Continental but not; cornflakes of unknown make, coffee catering quality straight from the tin. Plastic cutlery! Worst ignoring Fire Regulations. Fire doors propped open albeit with the fire extinguishers! No sign of smoke detectors except dining room.

The location of the place is really nice so the price to pay for a stay is acceptable. However, the room was really uncomfortable for me and my friend. My friend even didn't want to take a shower in that old, dirty, and almost cracking bathroom... The wooden floor and the bed were also let you feel its going to collapse! You wont feel the room is clean even the staff already cleaned it!! Next time would rather spend a bit more to stay in another place...

Great location but the most horrible mattress I have ever slept on. But it is very cheap so I guess you should expect something like this!

My sister and I just stayed over for 1 night. The accommodation was well located and the room is ok(with tv and ensuite bathroom). It was very dirty : there was a fridge but it had never been cleaned, the shower head was 10% working because 90% of it was blocked, there was dust all over the corners of the room. The window was not closing properly (it is fine considering the heating is working well) and the curtains were held by some plastic rail. The staff was nice. Globally ok for 1 or 2 days.

Overall I'm satisfied with my stay. I just needed a place to sleep for the weekend and I was out most of the time. Don't expect too much of the breakfast: two slice of bread with butter and marmalade, juice and cereals. Nothing you couldn't buy yourself at a Tesco. The rooms aren't amazing but they cover the basics, there's also free wifi. My room was clean, well heated and the bed comfortable enough. I woke up everyday rested and that's what mattered for me.

Good value for money and very good location! You can practically see kings cross/st prancras from the front door. Although, there was no soap in bathroom and we woke up pretty cold in the morning, you get what you pay for....and can't really complain

Really well situated and that's basically the only good reason to choose it. It's small and not very nice. The shower was stuck and the guy didn't do anything about it. The breakfast is ridiculous, the beds are extremely uncomfortable, the sheets are not very cleans and too small. The TV was absolutely unuseful (there wasn't even the basic channels). And the guy in charge is not even nice. Don't go there if you're on a week-end it's good enough for 1 or 2 nights as an emergency place. Or not.
