Its a lovely building and the common room, tv room, bar and computer room - set in a old court house is lovely.
Breakfast simple but plenty of it -toast, nuttella, jams. two types of cereal, tea, coffee, water, two types of fruit juice.
Showers were clean and the laundry room, mobile phone chargers and lots of locker spaces were all useful.
The down side was the rooms, the beds were comfortable, fairly clean and sturdy bunks. However they are squashed together like sardines, room would have being much nicer with six people sleeping in it rather than 10 and even in the luxury room there is just a few hooks and one narrow shelf, not nearly enough room for people to store things, a small bookcase or table would have being really useful as would have being some more hooks.
Staff were very nice and helpful and offered to carry my suitcase up a flight of stairs - very kind.
Location is excellent 5 mins walk from Kingscross tube, bars, food, chemist, museums ect all within walking distance.
Would stay again.
