    Great location - it’s really only 10 minute walk to the King’s Cross station. Huge + for the bar and the option to order food till late at night! The security level is awesome - you get in only if you’re actually staying or visiting someone who is. Although maybe it’s time to renew matresses in some rooms, mine was pretty tired of previous guests. Also the level of privacy could be better, there could be some curtains by each bed so you don’t see everyone like on a tray.

    Fabulous

    The location was very handy, the facilities were very good food and bar, Internet was fast and efficient, shower were clean and roomy. However the sleeping “tube” made me feel very claustrophobic so I feel a sleep through tiredness. Bed was very comfortable and charging facilities were above in a shelf. Breakfast is recommended however due to the size of the hostel patients is needed when looking for table

    Very Good

    The room that I stayed in smelled awful to where I had to cover my face with one of my own shirts so that I could sleep. I asked the desk if there was anything they could do about it and they said they couldn't do anything. Staff was not very friendly either. The hostel was close to Kings Cross and that was really nice because it was so easy to get anywhere from there.

    Noise was awful, karaoke and live music at the bar which was only a few doors down from our room kept us up until 3am most nights. People also continued the party in the corridor outside our room, leaving empty bottles behind them. Our room was also unmade upon arrival at 6pm, with dirty towels, sheets, and rubbish everywhere. Once they cleaned it, I had to make my own bed. Basement room also meant no natural light in our twin private with ensuite, so we avoided our pricey room most of the time!
