This is overall a perfectly nice place. Good baggage room, okay breakfast (nothing special, but toast and cereal is all you can expect at a hostel), good wifi (in the common room/kitchen, not in the rooms). I had a "duchess room"--private room with two bunk beds. It was small but fine, with two lockers/mini-closets. You could close the shade of... More

Good prices, GREAT location and super-friendly staff. Not a crazy party-hostel, but still quite a good spot to meet people. The staff in the reception were always really helpful and the rooms were clean and nice (once you found them - this place is a maze!). It's not luxuries, but based on the location, staff, free breakfast and price it... More

A friend and I spent two nights in this hostel. It was overall very pleasant. We were in a private room, which had no windows, but air conditioning worked great so it was fine. There is a very light complimentary breakfast. WiFi is available in the common areas (though it is a bit slow). Perfect location for Kings Cross and... More

I've stayed in Keystone Hostel, together with 4 more friends, in a 6 person bedroom. First of all, the location is great. One block away from King's Cross and has a underground station on the other side of the street. The room was nice. AC was working and was a great, because the windows don't open (imagine the smell of... More

Very comfortable beds and the rooms had air conditioning. Breakfast was satisfactory but nothing special. WAS THE LEAST SOCIAL HOSTEL IVE STAYED IN. Was expensive and wasn't really near the touristy areas that you would want to see if you haven't been to London before. I wouldn't go back if I were backpacking with my friends again.

We spend there with my boyfriend in a twin room about a month in the first half of the year 2014. The location of the hostel was great; it was in the centre of London – UK’s capital. We could do many sightseeing simply on foot, even in the best-known centre (although it was a bit more distant). During our... More

Location is great for a traveler. It's easy to drop your bags after getting off the train and then head into town. They let me store bags for free before checking in, which was a great perk. There was a bit of road noise in the rooms, but considering the location that's to be expected. I've stayed in several hostels... More

Hostel is located in a very good spot, near transportation and relatively cheap places to eat and buy stuff. Easy to find. There is a communal kitchen and shared bathrooms are decent. Mind there is a lot of stairs, in case you have much luggage or difficulties in locomotion. It is quite noisy, being very central and near intense traffic,... More

This hostel is in a great location. Right next to kings cross station and only a few stops away from most attractions. We stayed in room E1. A twin private Ensuite. Everything was fine until I found a mushroom growing out of under the shower. I cracked it off and tossed it in the garbage. Not sure how that could... More

The hostel is one block away from King's Cross and St. Pancras stations, and it has an underground station outside the front door. The location could not be better. The hostel itself was a struggle sometimes. The hallways are very narrow and there are a lot of stairs, which made carrying luggage difficult. It was definitely designed for backpackers and... More
