From check in to check out and on a daily basis, this was a complicated (unnecessarily so) stay. If I actually listed the details, you wouldn't believe me. The person at check in was not friendly. My daughter and I trekked around the place (from the 3 floor down to the basement-all stairs) on a daily basis due to switching... More

The location is the one saving grace for this hostel. Otherwise it wasn't great at all and we wouldn't stay here again. A friend and I were staying in an all female dorm - lots of the blinds were broken so lights from the busy Kings Cross location shone in all night. Rooms very noisy, and you needed the windows...

We were in a private room for 2 people: - moulds on the walls and shower - chewing gum on the bed - bogies on the walls (nice one!) - hairs in the bed (not ours) - when it is raining, the rain goes through the wall and then the room is wet - plastic bag in the bathroom bin... More

Stayed here a few days ago whilst visiting London. Having stayed in London multiple times I wasn't expecting much considering its cheap and so central but the state of this hotel is horrific. When arriving we were given keys to our private room which was way at the back of the hotel through many different corridors which had flies and... More

Me and my partner stayed in a private room with an ensuite. The one good thing with this hostel was the location, extremely central. We had mould on the wall (which was then attempted to be hidden by the mattress), the mattress had springs broken on one side and one of the nights when we came back to our "private"... More

We stayed in a private double room without a bathroom. Our room was so small and the window was small so it got pretty stuffy at times. I was not too uncomfortable however my boyfriend did complain about it being hot at night. It was quiet, and and clean. The staff was helpful and always at the front desk. The... More

Keystone House is in a great location for exploring the city by foot or when using public transport. It is a huge hostel but the staff was really friendly and very helpful. There was a service to leave your bags after checking out, although it would be great if this service were a bit cheaper, or even free! We stayed... More

The hostel was in a great location, directly across the street from an Underground entrance (Kings Cross/St. Pancras station), and a five minute walk from Kings Cross and St. Pancras. The staff was so helpful and friendly! The hostel itself was VERY clean. We stayed for two nights and had a private room with its own bathroom and bunk beds.... More
