Liked: The hostel was pretty nice except for the bathrooms. The showers were cold and the toilets had problems flushing. However, I did like the atmosphere of the hostel, convenient location, and free breakfast.

SUMI LIM

04 February 2008 SUMI would recommend this property

Liked: it's cozy and is a good place to relax because it is pretty quiet. also easy to go to anywhere(close to King's cross station and there are many buses to go to the city center) Personally I really enjoyed staying there. After staying a week there, I went to another hostel which was dirty and noizy because I was fully booked.One bad thing was tourists there didn't seem like talking that much.so I couldn't meet many friends there. But it's not an Ashlee's problem.

Jamie Tracy

01 January 2008 Jamie would recommend this property

Liked: Location! Very short walk from one of the main tube stations. The facilities are not that great but the location, free breakfast, and cheap price make it an excellent value for London. They were even nice enough to store my main luggage bag for me while I took 4 days to go tour Ireland (with just a smaller daypack). Lots of shops nearby as well.

Liked: Good things? Bad things- You had to hire crockery, no free tea and coffee. Kitchen vacilities in general were terrible. The bedrooms were extreemly hot and we couldn't turn the heating down. The showers were burning hot and not adjustable, so i couldn't shower.
