We decided on this hotel/hostel based on its reasonable prices and great location. The staff were polite and friendly. Complimentary breakfast was good, option of full cooked breakfast or cereal, yoghurt etc. which is perfect for the budget traveler. Kings Cross, St. Pancras and the underground were practically on our doorstep which made navigating the city very convenient. It was also about 20mins walking distance from Euston Station which is very handy for those intending to visit the Harry Potter studio tour. The room was always very clean and had tea/coffee facilities, private sink (we were in a room with a shared bathroom) and some storage space. Bathrooms, toilets and sheets were all clean which was one thing I really appreciated. The only let down at this hotel was we were staying in a basement room which was fine with us however it did have a strong smell of cigarettes which we found frustrating, particularly as I am an asthmatic. We asked for a non-smoking room but I think it was a residual smell from the building being quite old. Had a friend staying in an upper-level room which did not have the odor so only the basement room. Overall, a very comfortable and convenient stay.
