              The Italian bird staying in my room. And the breakfast was ok, done the job

              Toilets & Bathrooms! A bit worse for wear. Good to see top floor bathrooms being redone, hopefully starting from the top and working down.

              Easy to get to... Friendly staff and congenial fellow guests..real good value for the money.

              Thanks the woman taking my reservation in the morning. There was no female dormitory in the morning, so I booked the mixed one. I asked her to change my room if there is any cancellation. When I came back at 11 pm, there was a man at the reception and he said my room was female dormitory. Thanks the care they took. Rooms were clean according to a dormitory.

              Location and good staff.

              Water is too hot... Skin will feel hurt while taking a shower. Bed is not so comfortable. Internet is not fast sometimes.

            • Single
              5.8

              It's a colorful and fresh place with interesting young guests/staff. The location is great - very close to a key Underground station (King's Cross). I liked the common areas - tv room, dining area, computers.

              Because of the good location, the hostel is located on a busy main street. The window panes are single, plus the window needs to be open all the time in order to get some air in. Therefore the noise comes straight into the room. The breakfast was more scarce than expected. Bathrooms need renovation, but they said they are already working on that.

            • Single
              5.4

              Breakfest was fine, staff was really friendly

              The showers were horrible - the water was so hot it almost burned, and there were no way of regulating that the bed was poor, real hole in the middle kinda thing

            • Group of friends

              The poor condition of the shower/bathroom. only one for each floor

              the location is fantastic, staff is very friendly as well, and breakfast is awesome!

              6.6

              Close to train stations. Room was fair but toilets/showers could do with major revamp. Average overall.

              Bathroom/showers.

            • Single
              6.6

              Very cheap, facilities and comfort as expected given the price.

            • Couple
              5.4

              Reception is open 24 hours; staff were very friendly & helpful - they pointed out some good spots for food & drink; the location was excellent - 5mins from Kings Cross / St Pancras station; free breakfast was basic but enough to start your day of sightseeing / rambling around London

              Doesn't cater for smokers; a 'private room' should come with private bathroom facilities & not have to share with the rest of the floor- also our floor had no female washroom facilities, only male; washroom facilites could do with being updated (grimy & aged tiles, dripping shower heads) however, the reeptionist did mention that some refurbishment was being carried out while we were therre, which would explain the loud building noises from 7am!

            • Single
              6.6

              my female dormitory room for 4 was a tiny room for 4 people, just enough to sleep. the room was very clean. I booked thru here and my deal(22 pounds thru this website) was pretty good for the great location, Kings Cross station just around the corner, and with breakfast included.

              i took a shower at about 8 to 9 in the morning, and no hot water in any of the shared shower rooms on my floor. hope this is just temporary.

              Staff support, facilities

              Noise, I had a bed in a room that was towards the street and could not sleep

              5.0

              Location. In 5 min walk is King's Cross station (for underground - 6 lines cross) and one of major railway station.

              Dirty showers and toilets, only 2 for ca. 40 ppl and kept in bad condition. For this price (30£ for 1 night in 18 ppl room you'd expect more.
