Love this hostel. Nice, clean, quiet, secure and in great location. One thing would be very useful - to have some hooks on walls/doors for your jackets etc. Very obvious lack of, especially during colder months.

It's a nice, clean and safe hostel, very close to Kings Cross train station and all transport links. Only downside - it's on a main and very busy road, it gets very noisy in summer with both cars and people. Our room was good, but incredibly hot. And if you keep the window open, it was hard to sleep. So if you are a light sleeper, might not be a place for you (or ask for a quiet room).

Great hostel if you have an early train to catch. The area around it is a bit grim but hostel i s perfectly safe. Beds already made on arrival and are very comfortable. Lockers are available in rooms but are very narrow, so only suitable for coats or very small bags, standard size backpack won't fit.

Great hostel if you have an early train to catch, only about 5-7 min walk from Kings Cross. Rooms are ok, beds already made when you check in. All beds have very useful sockets to charge your phone etc. Not enough lockers for each person in the room, but there are more at the reception. All the communal areas are in good condition and clean. The only negatives: pillows are far too flat, had to fold mine double to get some support. Mattresses might be a bit too firm for some. Great free brekkie

By far, one of the best hostels in London. Great location, very secure, close to all transport links and attractions. Very good free breakfast included. A few long-time tenants, no crazy loud groups, so pretty quiet. You can still meet people there, but it's a wrong place if you are looking for big party life. Beds are solid wood, good quality, not shaking or squeaking etc, with foam mattress and pillow, so quality sleep. To be really really picky, the shower cabins are a little small.

it would be nice if the towels were free and some kind of tea/coffee making facility was available. Even if just a kettle and a few mugs

Great hostel, perfect location for exploring central London. Not just for young people, suitable for all ages. Pretty quiet and safe. Extremely helpful and welcoming staff. One of my favourite places to stay in London. On a slightly negative note: rooms were very hot, struggled to open windows, feels like heating was still on. Showers were ok but problems with water not going away in one of them.

Hi there, Thank you so much for your kind comment and great rating. We are glad you had a good stay in London! Indeed, it is really hot in London the last couple of weeks (very unusual though ;) We do have 24/7 reception staff and maintenance on-site every day, next time please let us know about anything that needs to be repaired and we'll try our best to fix it! Hope to see you soon again! Your Meininger Team.

Nice and clean hostel. Great view across the road from it to the Battersea Power Station. A bit of a walk from the tube, but very very close to the bus stop. Good quality breakfast. Probably the best shower (hot and powerful) in all London hostels :)

nice clean hostel, within walking distance to all major London attraction. The building and furniture is quite old, so there is a lot of creaking sounds around. Might be a problem for a light sleeper. Will definately stay again.

Nice basic accomodation in Nice. Very close to the beach and all touristy bits. 4 peoples rooms advertised as female only, but were in fact mixed.

perfect if u r travelling from waterloo station (eurostar etc). Quite nice and clean, but very basic for the price. Would recommend if only for night or two.
