1. It is two times cheaper in the hostel next door. 2. It is dirty 3. Rooms are extemely small - no space to make a single step. 4. Staff are helpless, not cool and makes you feel in a recreation centre for old people.

The breakfast was horrible, the kitchen was dirty our private fridge in our room smelt like off milk. The beds and room was dirty.

Staff was very friendly and gave great tips on visiting the city. Located in a trendy area, lot's of nice bars around. Breakfast was great, just be on time and you'll have plenty of... More

It made us wonder how a hostel in kings cross had any beds available at this time of year but it was a grand little place. Staff were helpful when they were around. The "storage room" was a joke as in all it was... More
