    Really good place to stay, very clean (floors are bleached daily) and friendly staff. Hostel is centrally located in Kings Cross, cheap eateries nearby, ten minute walk to Hyde Park and the city... Best of all though...Continental breakfast was included in the cost....!

    Thank you for contacting us. Our building is of an older style without an elevator and all rooms are located on upper levels. I would suggest looking at Hostels in the city centre area for a more wheelchair accessible option.
