Keystone House Hostel has surprised me on many levels. First, everything went wrong with booking a bed. When I emailed first about paying upon arrival because I don't own a credit card, they were very strict and said no. After two weeks I accidentally emailed the same hostel with the same question and now it was possible. But after reserving... More

Stayed here with friends at very short notice, walked in looking for a place to stay that night and the only room they had space in was the 16 bed female dorm room which was fine for us. Beds were clean and comfy. Right next to st Pancras station which is useful. Overall we enjoyed our stay. For the price... More

Pros: - Excellent location near Kings Cross - Somewhat cheaper than alternatives - Easy access to a Starbucks. Which you'll need for wifi... More

I needed a place in London for a night's stay at very short notice so booked this. I was a bit disappointed that there weren't any male/ female separated rooms, at least not when I booked. Also it was very very loud at night. The location was awesome, tube station just across the road and Kings Cross/ St. Pancras within... More

Most comfortable hostel beds I have ever stayed in. Staff was generally not overly helpful or pleasant. Wifi was spotty at... More
