Hostelz.com's Review
The best asset of this hostel is its location. It's very close to the King's Cross tube station (zone 1 in London), so it's within a short metro ride to anywhere. Journey's King's Cross fares quite well on the value scale as well--not too many options can be found in London for under 15 quid (or as little as 10 quid a day for longer term stays).

The hostel has all the basic amenities that the backpackers will expect, but it does lack somewhat in personality and social atmosphere. The rooms are comfortable, yet drab, the kitchen is too small, and showers are too few and lacking in privacy to accommodate all the guests comfortably. A typical hostel breakfast consisting of bread, butter, jam, and coffee is self-served every morning in the kitchen. There is a small TV lounge with internet, and another small lounge leading up to an open-air area, usually used by smokers. The small area of the lounges makes it somewhat difficult to socialize, which makes this hostel a bit boring.

In this overpriced city, you will learn that the phrase "you get what you pay for" rings true. But this hostel may not be a bad choice if you're looking to save a little cash.

1   Disgusted This Hostel was foul ... we were given keys to the wrong room and had access to every ones things, there was ONE unisex shower for woman as the rest were all out of order. The staff were down right obnoxious. On returning to the Hostel at 23:30 we were blocked from entering the place by all the drunken 'full time' guests and the STAFF drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana together while being abusive to any woman walking past and swearing constantly at the top of their lungs. When my girlfriend entered the only female bathroom she was faced with three intoxicated men in their underwear in the bathroom making disgusting gestures at her. Our room was filthy, our bed (if you could call it that) was the most uncomfortable joke we had ever lay on and we were kept up the ENTIRE night by the drunken staff and resident guests shouting foul abuse. Absolutely the worst place I have EVER had the misfortune to stay, my girlfriend felt truly unsafe and upset the whole time ... I have literally stayed in scores of Hostels all across the world, but this place was just unbelievable ... AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!  , Scotland ()
