This hostel is in a great location, 2 seconds from Kings Cross Station and a 10 min walk from Euston and with a nice bar across the road. The hostel was clean and basic, it's quiet which is what we were looking for. However, the underground rooms are not only underground (I knew that when I booked) but also really... More

This Hostel wasn't anything special or particularly nice. However, I have certainly stayed in worse places. It was overall pretty dirty but the main thing that I was dissatisfied with was the cost for what you are getting. Towels, locks, and other basic amenities were an additional cost and ridiculously overpriced. I would would only recommend booking this hostel as... More

Considering I have paid infinitely LESS money for hostels in Asia where I've had a pool and beautiful surroundings, my hostel expectations are often unfairly high, however saying that, whilst the room was small, and I don't love bunk beds, the room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the shower pressure excellent (if not the shower space itself a...

Had phone charger and headphones stolen and staff told me that it was my fault that it was stolen. I would sooner walk the streets than stay here again The receptionist was terrible with me and the rooms horrible without good lockers. The bathroom was horrible too, and the people who go there is very violent. The worst staff ever!!!... More

The room was nice, stayed in a 3 person room with private bathroom with 2 friends. Had its own in wall ac unit which was great. I did notice a strange moisture smell in the room however. We stayed in Omega room 5. You need to rent towels here, which is fine. Had to do this at a hostel in... More

Hostel and staff (Andrea in the reception) brilliant. Location perfect. I would come back definitely. A little bit noisy during the day, which is understandable because is located in the central London.

My friends and I stayed in the 4 bed private room for 2 nights. The staff were very unwelcoming and acted annoyed with any questions. The atmosphere was not very social or exciting. Other hostels I've stayed in for similar price have been much more accommodating. However, it was very close to the Underground with some good restaurants and coffee... More

Ok, it is really cheap, and for that price I half expected to share a room with rats! We got a triple room, which was really small and empty, no table or wardrobe, just lockers, even if it is supposed to be a private room. It was also quite dusty, considering that we all had an allergic reaction. The window... More

I stayed here with two friends in May 2015 for three nights. We were firstly promised when we booked that if we emailed before we got there, we would be given a room with an ensuite. This then changed and we were told that was not possible (by very rude staff.) It took my friend weeks to get any answer... More
