I didn't actually stay at the hotel but arrived late as planned for an overnight stop. I was to be charged in excess of £76 for a double bedded room with single occupancy. On arrival I was concerned- when showed the room the bedding appeared to be dirty- although I was informed it had be changed, the duvet which was... More

All in all it was an okay hostel if you are staying for a few days. It was very run down, and the dorms where very packed, but the beds have curtains for privacy.. Too bad my curtain was broken... The place wasn't that clean, and there was nowhere to put your bags safely, during my visit the police even... More

I stayed here so I could walk around London from Kings Cross Station and it was perfect for that close to the station and not far from the rest of London. It was my first time at a private hostel, stayed at Youth Hostel Association places in the past. I was impressed by how organised the place was with codes... More

We had a train to catch from St Pancras the next morning, so checked into the 17 person dorm for the night. You are packed in like sardines, but the beds have curtains, lights and a powerpoint which makes it a little more private. The place wasn't terribly clean, with the showers quite dirty and mouldy. The shower was more... More

The hostel was nice enough nice rooms and good security but the breakfast was not, every morning I went down for breakfast there was hardly anything left - the sugar was almost run out with lots of bits of coffee in it and hardly any orange juice.in it. But not bad. I rented a locker at £2 a day which... More

Ok so the hostel wasn't super clean but I loved the quirkiness and the curtains around the beds, which were very welcome in my 9-man dorm. This hostel is cheap, very close to both Camden and Kings Cross and is a great place to meet fellow travelers. I had a very enjoyable breakfast in the little courtyard. Would stay here... More

I staied at this hostel for 3 nights with my friends. I choose the 9 female bedroom. This hostel is very central in London, 3 minutes far there is King's Cross Station, with trains and subway, and on the same street, Caledonian Road, there is the overway, so it's very easy to move and visit whatever you want. The guys... More

I came here with my boyfriend to meet up with our friends that live near London, only to be given a room we hadn't booked! We booked a double bedded room, and we ended up with shared dorms with 15 other people. We were also disgusted by the sight of the dirty and unclean kitchen, and toilets. Truly dreadful. The... More

The location is absolutely amazing, it's very close to kings cross station and a Tesco. About the place itself, the receptionists are nice and helpful! The building is quite narrow so every room is a big small but I still thought it was comfortable. the bed is good and the linen is included in the price which is good !... More
