“Great location, good value, friendly staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

This is a great hostel in terms of both its location, price and staff friendliness. The rooms are standard hostel dorm rooms, mine slept 5 and had a ensuite bathroom. The beds are very comfortable and bed linen is supplied, although towels and small locks for the in-room luggage cupboards are not (although they can be bought from reception for a few pounds).

There is a small cafe in the reception area selling drinks (including alcoholic drinks), and reasonably priced hot and cold food. In terms of luggage storage, there's space in the room, including a lockable cupboard as mentioned above, and also paid locker storage in the basement, if, for example, you want to store your luggage at the hostel after you have checked out.

One of the major draws of this hostel has to be its excellent location. When you stay in this part of London you can walk to almost anywhere, and you're close to Camden and the lovely area of Bloomsbury, which can boast some great bookshops, the British Museum and the British Library (which is literally across the road). The hostel is opposite Kings Cross and St Pancras stations, and down the road from Euston station, and is near lots of underground stops too.

The only negative thing was that the ensuite bathroom wasn't very clean, although this may have as much to do with the strangers I was sharing the room with as with how often and thoroughly it was cleaned. There are other bathrooms in the hallway which you can use though, so that, plus a pair of flipflops, and you should be fine.

Super clean hostel, very great location (2 minute wakl from St Pancras/Kings Cross Train Station. Stayed overnight to catch an early train to Paris...big bathroom, nice beds. Stayed with 3 friends and one other person who was very nice. Lockers available beside the beds in a wooden cupboard...great hostel. Would stay again!!! Staff is very helpful and right beside O'Neill's pub...which is amazing.

Overall the hostel was very welcoming. The rooms had no sinks so had to go the the shower room/bathroom to clean out teeth and have a quick wash but as there are pently scattered around that was never a problem. We took out a travel kettle to ensure a morning cup of tea before attacking the city. Rooms were very clean and the bunk beds very comfy. There is traffic noise but we're in the city centre! Great location and brilliant service from the staff. Bathrooms were a little on the damp side so bring Crocs or flip flips.

I'm sat in the cafe in the lobby having just checked out and have had a really great stay. The rooms were surprisingly spacious (we had a family en-suite with 2 bunks). The room was clean on arrival and although it faced onto Euston Road the traffic at night wasn't a problem for us. The staff were friendly on check-in and out but the night staff (jet lag is a pain!) we're a little quiet and unwelcoming, though I wouldn't say unfriendly. The 24hr cafe was a god send at 4am when me and my daughter couldn't sleep! The only downside was out train wasn't leaving till 1.30pm and I was under the impression there was somewhere to leave our luggage. Maybe if you have backpacks not suitcases! The problem was solved by opting for a late check out for £5 which I was happy to pay. Not sure what we'd have gone if it wasn't available though!
