Stayed 2 nights in May 2016

Just OK, there are way better hostels in the vicinity”

The room was extremely small; beds were cramped and there's not enough space to put my items. It wasn't thoroughly cleaned and bathrooms were not on all floors. On the other hand, location was great as it's near St. Pancras/King's Cross, wifi was relatively fast and the staff members were friendly. Prior to my stay at Journeys, I stayed in a hostel which was within walking distance (I wanted to extend but they were already full) but the experience, facilities, cleanliness, etc. were much better... for almost the same price! Journeys is good for a few nights stay only, but I would probably not come back.

Hi Christine, thank you for taking your time to leave a review. We have bathrooms on every floor and showers on 3 out of 4 floors. We have cleaners that clean our entire building every day. And unfortunately we can't make the rooms bigger, you will find that most hotels and hostels in central London have smaller rooms. We hope you will consider us again. Have a nice day!

Exceptional”

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!

HOME - KING'S CROSS guest visitor THE ROAMING NOMAD”

There is a tiny cramped kitchen but hooray you can self cater. Rooms overcrowded and cold, mine had some sort of damp and mold growing in the corner - unpleasant. Tiny, narrow stairs. Decor basic, not bright and cheerful more on the side of dark and grimy. Has its own teeny, weeny bar for all you drinkers. Sheets were clean and fresh. The free breakfast had loads of choice, 3 kinds of bread, 5-6 types of cereals, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, orange juice, pancakes - so many jams and spreads I couldn't count. Fantastic location just a hop, skip and a jump from King' Cross British Rail and Underground Stations plus St Pancras for Eurostar.

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.

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.

This hostel is good the location, it is not far from King Cross station. In contrast, this hostel quite not satisfied with cleanliness, toilets, and bedroom. The bedroom is quite squeezed, and a number of beds quite exceeding. It is not a good time when you would like to sleep.

Dear Pattarapong, Im glad you enjoyed the great location of our Hostel. Unfortunately this also mean that alot people want to stay here all year round, and, just like the City itself, yes sometimes it maybe a little squeezed. This is the nature of Hostel life when travellers are paying cheap prices to accommodation (And with very big bags). We also have a great team of house keepers who clean all the Dorms, bathrooms & communal areas everyday and do their best to keep the it clean and tidy all day. Thank you for writing the review and staying with us. Regards, Kelsey

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

Great location but very small rooms!”

Internet access and transportation links to city of London.

the time spent at this hotel was ok but not great. There are a number of good things abotu the hotel like internet access, great location for transportation links being within walking distance of Kings Cross metro adn train stations where you can also get international connencting trains to Europe. The staff was okay. Room was not as clean as it could have been and was overcrowed as there were two people sleeping in 1 bed at one time during my stay. And also there was a broken window that had to be left open due to the fact it could not close. This made sleeping at night uncomfortable due to the noise and cold breeze coming into the room. overall I would say that they stay was just below average.

good location

The location of this hostel is good because it is very clos to King's cross train station. But the room is rather small and the hot water for shower is not satisfactory. Overally speaking, it is OK to stay for a short time except that I lost my bag in the luggage room, which is very strange and unacceptable.

Location, cheap

So I arrived at Journeys in a chilly night. Check-in and get my bed and stuffs sorted. It looks quite good though with interesting design. Got to key in security numbers to get into hostel and the room itself so I did feel safe. Got power point and small lamp at each bed. In my case a bunk-bed look-alike. Wi-Fi no problem. Bathroom just nice. I remembered only Nicole, staff that helped me through my booking modification. Another guy, John i think his name also good though. It just one thing, the kitchen and couch room is locked at early morning. So it was a problem to me when getting up really early and need some hot water.

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.

This place is fine. I found the rooms to be very small, but I don't stay in hostels that often so I just might not have been used to sharing a room with 6 people. It's about a 5-10 minute walk to King's Cross which is convenient.

A decent place to lay for a night ”

Nice staff, quiet rooms, great location

A labyrinth of sound,proof doors and rigorously controlled quiet hours make this hostel surprisingly comfortable. I slept off the worst of my jet lag here, for one night, and when I woke at 4:00am the desk attendant was wonderfully accommodating. She unlocked the kitchen and left me to chill with my coffee and book for a few hours while the sun came up, then later, she gave me a key to the luggage room for no extra charge ,, I dropped off my bag and went for a great morning walk in Regent's Park. All in all this quirky place was totally worth it, but like most hostels, probably just for a night.
