Liked: Really, really, really lovely friendly and helpful staff, chilled atmosphere, I really liked the bean bag TV room, very nice sociable area. The cleaners clean the kitchens and bathrooms often and hoover the rooms and change the bins every day which is nice. Despite being in the middle of Kings Cross it's surprisingly quiet at night, we kept the window open all night without being disturbed.

Disliked: A bit run down which makes it look dirty, the room smelled bad even with the window open. The room got really hot at night, there's only one fan which was near the ceiling so the top bunks got most of the breeze.

Liked: We've stayed at quite a few hostels in the Cross and this has to be one of the best. We stayed in a 3 bed room and there was plenty of space for our suitcases and it was nice to have space to unpack and hang clothes up. The common areas are nice to chill out in. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hostel was kept clean. Would defintely stay again and reccomend to others.

Disliked: The Kitchen didn't have an oven which is easy enough to work around, bit of a pain going downstairs for pots and pans but nothing dramatic. The wifi was hit and miss which was frustrating when trying to skype etc but I think they were upgrading it and there are computers that worked fine downstairs.
