You get what you pay for - simple as that. We only needed a room for 1 night as cheap as possible and close to Kings Cross. No bells and whistles but good enough.


Our room was smelly! At first we thought it was the curtains which were mouldy but dry! On reflection I think theroom was not aired often! Suprisingly, the tiny shower room did not smell at all, though the large shower head was crusty!!! Thankfully, we were only there for one night and it was a last minute booking. It was cheap but we were desperate! The positive was the bedding was clean and the owner looked after our luggage. Would not return.

The hostel is near Kings Cross Station which is really convenient when travelling, whether taking the national rail or catching the tube (subway). We were given a room at the top floor (4th floor), and carrying big bags and going up the spiral stairs was not the easiest thing. We were not able to receive wifi connection as well.
