14 June 2009

Liked: The Hostel was reeeally good located, next to King´s Cross Station, easy to take any bus or metro. But, we didn´t like the bathrooms and the night staff was rude. She didn´t help us at all when we asked about pubs, just "ahh, walk around...soho, ...here, ...no." while she was really focused at the msn, icq, i don´t know! But, the guy that worked in the afternoon was cool! :b And that is a pub in front of the hostel...

Liked: This was my first time hostel-ing and it really was a positive experience - the staff were helpful and chatty, the rooms and bathrooms clean and mirror-y and our roomate remained ridiculously friendly despite us coming back in from a steampunk concert at 2am waving samosas at her. Awesome location too!
