The hostel was fine, it provided a bed, not overly comfy however. The kitchen was plaughed with flies, and you had to provide a deposit for a plate, cutlery and a mug etc! The place wasn't overly clean and had no atmosphere. Alright if you literally need somewhere to crash for the night, but wouldn't rate it other than that.

Absolutely loved the hostel, great atmosphere, real character and really clean. Only down side was that in a 6 bed dorm there were only 2 plug sockets, located together and right behind one persons bed....not ideal. Other than that, fab place to stay, and super comfy beds!

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to rate your stay and we're glad that overall you enjoyed your time in Jail. We're sorry to hear that you encountered a problem getting access to the plug sockets. We agree that they are quite limited in the dorms but because the original prison walls are over two feet thick it would be a challenge to install any extra wiring. There are extra sockets available in the communal areas and guests are very welcome to charge electronic devices in our office. Once again, thank you for your valuable comments and we hope to see you in Jail again very soon. Kind regards The Jailhouse team

Great little hostel, the staff and guests are all lovely - nice friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The only thing I would say is that as a single female traveller walking back through the Kings Cross area at night on your own isn't the nicest, so just think about your location when choosing your hostel. Bathrooms and kitchens were kept super clean but bedrooms not some much, but I guess thats up to those staying in it. No lockers to lock your stuff in but didn't feel like it was necessary.
