This reviews on here are very harsh. Its a hostel in the middle of london and its cheap, why complain? Bad points:- guy on reception (possibly owner) wasnt very welcoming, bit of a language barrier however, not a big deal. Mouse trap next to my bed. Not the best thing you want to find in your room but the food... More

Our plan was to stay for one night in order to catch the Eurostar to Disney. The kids were excited to go to Disney but when we got to this hotel they were so upset. First of all, the appearance is pathetic. Paint is peeling, cobwebs everywhere and carpet was shabby. Reception doesn't even have a desk, you just stand... More

We went to London last week for a couple of night stay and I booked this guesthouse to keep the cost down, budget it definitely is. We made most of it as we were out all day and then only went back to sleep, and at least the bed was clean . The place is overall a bit grotty and... More

Located in Kings Cross, this hotel seemed an ideal place to stay for me and my family. We payed £158 for 2 adults and 5 children for one night, split into 2 rooms. On arrival, the place looked 'budget' without a doubt, with the hallway presenting a most unwelcoming feel. Reception was a corner desk in a small room with... More

Terrible hotel, not very clean, metal frame beds being held up by blocks of wood, hole in the floor covered by carpet, doors don't fit the frames, Windows all rotten, water takes a lifetime to drain from the sink and that's the good bits! Didn't see any rats but evidence they are around. Bunk beds in the reception area which... More

I stayed there because it was late and the receptionist told me they couldn't do anything in that moment. The next day they changed my room and...saw rats again! It... More

I have been in this guest house one night with a friend. We are both very easy going so we thought it would be fine just for a night. Belive me, it wasn't at all! It is decadent, dirty, noisy... They welcomed us saying: girls don't get scared! We saw the cleaner putting the clean sheets and towels on the... More

Obviously not much comfort can be expected given the price and the name of the place - but low room temperature can not be forgiven even in this occasion. Also noise from the subway and footsteps along with other noise from surrounding rooms was an issue, that's why only one star instead of two. It'll be fine for a few... More

Hostel is 5 mins to Kings Cross - that's perfect. It is hostel - you cannot wait five star hotel luxury. But the room was clean, as well the towels and bathroom. I think that If you want to only sleep in the room, not to spend long day in here, it is perfect.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
