Neale M. Solo travelers United Kingdom, April 4, 2015
Worst hostel i've stayed in
2.3
This place is poorly run. first off when i check in i was told i would need to change my room the next day. also the key i was giving for my first room would only open when it wanted to. this was annoying but i didnt mind so much but the next morning i go and ask for my new room key told i cant go in untill they cleaned it. so i had to leave my stuff in the TV lounge where anyone could come and move it etc. Also i had valuables in a bag so didnt want to leave that in the tv room was told i could use the lockers which cost me 5 dollars and they didnt offer to compensate me considering it wasnt my fault i had to check out and move room. this was compounded by the reception area looked more than big enough to have stored that. toilets/showers weren't very clean and shower water power was. it was also rowdy and the tv room was full of yobs. the free breakfast is just cereal/toast. Also i booked into an all male dorm and had a girl in my dorm. AVOID at all costs

Good location

The hotel is not far from Kings Cross station. It's a backpacker's hostel. Do remember to bring your own necessary toiletries as the room is really very basic.
