    The room is being cleaned everyday. However, I've noticed that public areas like the dining and living areas aren't cleaned and a little bit messy. But, overall, it was a nice experience staying in The Funkhouse. It's very convenient as it is close to the train station, supermarket, convenience stores and the tourist spots. I'd love to stay there again sometime in the future.

    This place was good value for the price. The rooms and bathrooms were kept very clean, front desk staff were very nice!! Most of the guests were on working visas and staying there for a few months, so it wasn’t the best place to meet other people just traveling. Location was good, close to bars and restaurants and very close to kings cross.

    I’ve stayed in a few hostels over the last year and this one probably had one of the worse bathrooms I had used was just uncomfortable to shower in. Kitchens were always dirty. A blonde female member of staff was quite rude to us but the male team member was always very polite. Can’t complain though for 10 pounds a night so you get what you pay for

    They upgraded our room upon arrival from a 8 bed to a 3 bed which we had to ourselves our entire stay. Great location. 5 mins to train station, 5 mins to grocery stores, full of little local cafes and markets. Kitchen facilities were not always clean; wouldn’t feel comfortable cooking food there. Loud partying until 5 am (to be expected in a hostel I suppose), vacuuming outside bedroom at 630 am everyday. Found hair that didn’t belong to us in our beds. Bathrooms clean!

    Cleaning starts a bit early around half 6 which is no problem bar the vacuum bangs off the walls and woke us every morning other than that good value for money with a massive kitchen and something for entertainment every night.

    Loved the staff! My room was clean. The atmosphere wasn't what I was looking for. Lots of ppl who already knew each other there so it was hard fitting in (especially if you didn't speak their mother tongue). Not a bad place if you're looking for a place to sleep and leave your luggage but not one I'd choose long term for Work Visa. Great wifi connection!!

    the location was great, you can walk everywhere. It was also pretty clean (it should be considering they wake you up hoovering at like 5.30-6 am every morning). There are a lot of people staying there long term, most of whom come across pretty obnoxious and they have no regard for other guests, slamming doors and screaming into the early hours all week long. Tried to use the kettle once the whole week we were there and people were all but shoving you out of the way.

    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
