Dingy, dirty, uneven flooring, dirty bathroom, overly narrow staircases that threaten to break upon luggage being brought across, no a/c or fan, dirty floors, dirty walls and ceiling, door that doesn't lock properly, tv that doesn't work, dirty sheets and linen, staff who can't seem to speak english even though we're right smack in London. Please don't waste your money... More

Hotel was as expected, basic but clean. Main problem was someone came into our room during the night. They had keys so assume it was staff. Not acceptable especially as we had children in room too. Bathroom was ok and clean but no bin. Will look at youth hostels next time.

It depends what you want I suppose, but even £39 was to steep for this flea pit. They also close the doors and lock you out by about midnight so if you don't check in early enough, tough! I had to pay an extra £25 to get a taxi just to pick up the key. It was explained to me... More

I stayed here with my wife because we wanted to catch the earliest train to Paris the next day. Merely 7 minutes away from Kings Cross St Pancras station. The room size was ok. Cleanliness 4/10. Shower on top floor not working. TV not working. Front desk was helpful though. If youre only gonna stay here for few hours (about... More
