Staff here were super friendly and helpful, upon arrival we were put into a better private room than we booked and we had wifi in our room which was a big pro! Kitchen was small and a bit grubby, that was the main con, but bread, tea, coffee, milk, spreads all provided for breakie! Good location and 2 min walk to kings cross station, overall I'd recommend.

Overall the Hostel was ok. While staff was super friendly and helpful, the room was not really clean and also my pillow had stains. Overall the bathroom could use some renovations (mold on the wall).

As soon as I opened room door, the smell hit me. It was filthy, with bins filled and things thrown all over the place. Absolute pig sty. Told the staff and they said it's because they are long-termers - no excuse. I immediately looked for an airbnb to check in to, but all booked up so had to stay. Top bunk with no ladder, mattress felt more like a gym mat. The street outside was noisy as hell, even with the window shut. No curtains so woken up at sunrise. Just awful - do not stay here!

The staff when I arrived seemed pretty flustered and not too sure what they were doing. It was a public holiday weekend so maybe they were just really busy.. Kitchen is far too small for the number of people staying here. Apart from this it is a pretty decent hostel, the TV room is super chilled out and the atmosphere is not too bad either (great shower which is always a bonus)... Would I stay again? Not 100% sure!

The staff was lovely and accommodating. However, I can't say the same for the lodgers, likely because this was Kings' Cross. There was a heavy smell of cigarette smoke and pot at the doorstep. In terms of amenities, I thought the rooms were cramped, toilets weren't flushed and they were too small. A lot of the rooms were messy and the kitchen was sometimes full of dirty dishes. There were no lockers. The bunk beds had no safety railings. If you want to stay, go private.
