Really well located but away from the noise of the more touristy areas. Generally clean but the shower area never got properly cleaned and I notified staff that the shower was not draining properly but it hadn't been fixed by the next morning. Under the beds was also not well cleaned, which is noticeable when everyone is storing luggage under them. Otherwise a very nice hostel, but I would only stay there again if the cleanliness improved.
Location is excellent, right next to the British Museum and within easy walking distance to many touristy areas. The toilets and shower areas were very clean but I was uncomfortable walking on the carpet in the room barefoot. They do a good job keeping people quiet late at night. They also have free WiFi and luggage store, which is always nice. Staff was generally friendly and helpful.
Hostel is well located near King's Cross and St. Pancreas. It was also quite clean. However, the heater/air conditioner in my room was not working and I heard units in other rooms were also not working. Unfortunately it was sweltering in my room because there was a complete lack of airflow. The WiFi at the hostel isn't free and there is quite a hefty charge if you aren't a member, but there are lots of places in London where you can get free WiFi.
Hostel is well located and was very clean. It can be a bit loud later in the evening. Most of the hostel staff were very helpful, especially when it came to booking an Antrim Coast Tour.
