    We really liked our stay! We stayed in a mixed 8-bed room, the last room near to the rooftop, for 10 nights. Beds were comfy and there was a large locker for each person to use. Our bathroom was never too busy, it was almost private. Great facilities such as rooftop area and great location for the price you pay! It was a friendly and chilled out atmosphere. The staff was all amazing, always happy to help you, specially Nacho. It has a new administration; we recommend giving this place a try.

    It was a great location, nice people and a great hostel vibe with lots of friendly travellers! Only complaint is the cleanliness, we stayed for 5 days and the bathroom soap was empty the entire trip and the overall cleanliness was poor, but we had a great stay overall!

    Hostel was in a good location, with easy access to buses into the town. However, the cleanliness of the property was horrific. Dirty pans and cutlery in the sink with dirty sponges to clean with. Very low amount of things to use in the kitchen, had to buy plastic cups for cups of tea as all the cups were in use. Toilets were broken, and always low on loo paper and soap. Showers were good and powerful. Very poor management, people who were staying there Were not cleaning up at all.

    Expensive for nothing. Don't believe the pictures, the hostel is dirty. Well located in King Cross, but not welcoming. Smell foot everywhere. Deserve the rate of less than 7/10 on Hostelworld.

    Don't expect a "breakfast", because they just have some milk, butter and cereal, almost never bread or coffee. Super dirty, they never clean the rooms, the kitchen and the bathroom disgusting. The staff doesn't exist!! i just saw them the last day. "Organized Events & Nights Out" this is a lie!! they don't do anything.
