The manager was on holidays when you stayed so we could have helped you with your problems.The wi fi does work on Microsoft phones and there is clearly the option of hot,cold or warm wash on the washing machines.I'm glad you loved the courtyard,room and our location.

Being 20 years old and travelling alone it can be very nerve racking entering a new hostel, from the second i arrived at zing i was made to feel sooo welcome and fitted right in. If you want clean rooms, great facilities and the buzz of kings cross zing is for you.
