Liked: Its very clean and quiet, and there are good facilities/

Disliked: You have to pay for everything extra. Things that would be free at the vast majority of other hostels, you have to pay for at YHA. Wifi, towels, luggage room, etc., etc. They charge quite exorbitant amounts for all of these things and more.

Liked: Really good sized room, nice reception staff, brilliant location for where we were going. There was a huge window ledge which was handy as a kind of mini sofa!

Disliked: The toilet paper ran out within a couple of hours so I don't think it had been properly restocked since the people before were in there.

Liked: Location was the best! Only 2 minutes from King's Cross whether you need the tube or the Eurostar. Great helpful staff and good spacious room.

Disliked: Got noisy at night, window couldn't shut. Maybe get a sound curtain as loud music and shouting was heard most of the night. Also, wi-fi in the rooms would help a lot

Liked: Great location, staff were friendly and helpful, handy little cafe downstairs, we stayed in a 5 bed private room which was a good size and very clean.

Disliked: Generally a great hostel except that at about 1am we were woken by some men messing about outside our room. We didn't mind the noise but at one point they opened our door and shouted something into the room. We were a group of women staying in a private room and the door was definately shut properly so these men must have had an activated keycard to be able to open it. This was obviously concerning to us as we don't know how they came to have it (we think they must have been staff or had their key activated for the wrong room but they obviously new that it would open our door and that it wasn't their room). Luckily they went away shortly after and we were due to check out in the morning but we regretted not mentioning it to the staff when we left as it's worrying that the securlty was so slack.

28 January 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was very modern, like a hotel in aspects, room cards, lobby etc. The room was very clean, quiet, peaceful, with an ensuite which is very rare in hostels. The location was amazing, I didn't even need directions from kings cross, literally walked about two second down the road and could see it. Even though it was a five person dorm, it was empty a lot, and everyone was friendly. And it didn't look like people had been living in it for years! Ha, the last hostel I went to looked like people had been staying there for months, and it was clear that didn't happen in this hostel, the room was completely clean and empty, which is a much nicer to environment to enter into

Disliked: The main thing which let it down was the ensuite, I wouldn't have even felt it was a hostel, until I got into the bathroom which had a hole in the floor, mould on the walls, shower curtain etc, and the shower wasn't very pleasant. There wasn't a kitchen either, eventhough they did have like a resturant downstairs. So I had to live on pre-packed sandwiches and cold food for three days, so that would have been helpful for me. Also, the wifi and breakfast wasn't free, which I did like in the other hostels.
