Do not for whatever reason stay here”
I have been to a ton Hostels from all over the world and this is the worst hostel I've ever stayed at. It was strange to be at a hostel that was the dirtiest place I've ever seen. 3rd world countries have cleaner hostels. They also refused to do anything about the MAJOR MAJOR BED BUG PROBLEM they have. The staff just shrugged and didn't care. Sooooo please do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else. Like anywhere in the world would probably be better than this place. The only good thing is location.

Good value of money with surprises”
My first time to be in a bunk bed with 3 decks. I booked a mix room but ended up I had a bed with two other girls only. Simple breakfast with roasts and cereals were also served every morning. Again, I didn’t book for that. These surprised me.

My room smelled awful (I think there was a person there who was sick, and in the morning I saw socks hanging up that looked pretty soiled). At least the window was open. The bed sheets were warm, but I didn't feel anything was clean enough to sleep in pajamas so I slept in my street clothes. The restrooms and kitchen were fully stocked, and good signage in place to keep people informed and respectful (be quiet for neighbors, turn the volume down here, wash your dishes you use, etc). The place was very loud, though I liked having the common space. I don't recommend for anyone trying to get anything done, as there was constant flow of people through the kitchen cooking, eating, in and out of the bar, and watching a movie. Peanut butter at breakfast was AWESOME. The staff I did talk with (though a bit drunk) were welcoming and talkative, and the receptionists were at least getting the job done. Grateful for the cheap rate and good placement, but I wouldn't stay there again.

Very good value for money being in such a central part of London. Beds are more comfortable than I've had in similar priced hostels. Music heard around the hostel (I think from the bar in the basement) was to my taste - mainly rock and pop punk being played. Showers were better than I initially thought they'd be as there's no temperature control (on the one I used at least) but it was nicely warm. However the shower head was quite low and fixed at that height, so it was a little bit awkward to wash my hair. Breakfast was plentiful, with lots of cereals, bread / toast with a variety of spreads, pancake mix, juice and a coffee machine. It was also wonderful to see the cat wandering around acting like he owned the place and making sure people were behaving!

Okay for a night stay”
(+) walkable distance from the king cross st pancras station (+) curtains and power socket for every bed (+) was lucky to have very nice roommates!!! (+) only good for a night’s stay (-) only staircase meant that large suitcases would have a hard time bringing up to ur dorm room upstairs and the corridors and staircases are really small - only fit the size of a person. (-) female showers were really small. You can’t put ur towel and clothes inside the showering cubicle as there isn’t any space.
Reviewed May 03, 2018
Thank you for your feedback we are glad you enjoyed your stay particularly the privacy offered by the curtains, and the convenience of electric sockets on each bed. We do encourage guests two take only an overnight bag in to the room and store there large suitcases in the luggage rooms provided, this means everybody can make us of the space in the rooms. We understand the female towers can feel a little cramped, however in the unisex bathrooms there is showers inside a cubicle, with hooks on the back of the door for your towels and clothes. Kind regards Danny

Pretty decent hostel”
I booked a '3 bed female room' and it was nice. The room was small but it was enough for 3 people, there was a mirror and a chair. There was a socket and a small lamp by each bed which was really helpful, each bed also had curtains. There was also a small electric heater in the room. The bathrooms were alright, unfortunately the female bathroom was broken so I had to use a unisex bathroom in the basement which wasn't too comfortable. Overall, I'd stay there again if the price was the same.

Bed in 17-Bed Mixed Dormitory Room

Dirty (Checked Out Imediately 3 hours later)”
Was very disappointed with the Hostel condition. Booked a 6 person dormitory and I think I got one which is for 12/17 person dormitory. There were bags of clothes and shoes thrown around the floor. Pretty hard to walk around the room. I checked out 3 hours later after finding myself another Hostel nearby which is world's apart. Avoid the Hostel if you are an occasional backpacker. The place vs YHA and Generator are worlds apart. Did not get any refund as I didn't ask for it but frankly should have as I paid for a 6 person dorm. My honest opinion, the Hostel is not for everyone.

Location is great and the staff were one of best I've experienced in London. Thought the hostel itself was average, get what you pay for though. I'd recommend for some of you to spend a few extra and go a nicer place but if your really budgeting you will have no problems here
