Liked: The best hostel Ive ever stayed in! Would definitely recommend. The atmosphere is great, lots of very welcoming long term guests and the nicest staff ever. Locations great as its in Kings Cross, still very quiet street so I had a good sleep as well. Very clean and friendly hostel. Would definitely stay again!
