    I had a good time here. Free breakfast is a big plus (toast, cereal, tea & coffee), and very close to King's Cross station. There's a nice common area and kitchen. There wasn't enough space/compartments in the kitchen to put your food, and the fridges were a bit dodgy. Also saw a few small cockroaches :/ All in all a very pleasant stay though!

    Amazing Staff, okay facilities, better toilets upstairs, decent Internet. Squeaky bunk beds lol.. I enjoyed my stay. Had good roomies. Though Despite the cleaning efforts of the staff: most of the backpackers were disgraceful, were clearly not raised right. Treated the place like a dump and didn't clean up after themselves. I'm surprised half of them were not evicted.

    Fine place to stay for a night. Its quite noisy being on the street at kings cross but thats to be expected.The one problem we had was we tried to check in befire it closed and still had to call the night manager as they had locked the door early. He was unhappy about us keeping our IDs as we had to check out before staff hours (10am). Good value for a cheap hostel overall

    You get what you pay for! The location was good, close to the city center. Clean enough but probably wouldn’t cook in the kitchen.. Comfortable beds and great WiFi! The really big downside is that there are a lot of long term people that don’t come across as friendly at all.. a lot of groups. As a solo traveler I didn’t really vibe with it. I found it hard to talk to other..

    This property is located in rough sketchy area, which was the first red flag upon arrival plus that there were cockroaches in the halls.. we went into the kitchen to find a disgusting mess everywhere and decided that it was totally unsafe for us to cook in it for our one night stay. The rooms/ halls stunk and the washrooms were gross as well. I get that staff clean and we did see them when we were leaving the next day. But this hostel needs to do more, because this was our worst hostel stay ever
