Liked: General standard of cleanliness was particularly high. The staff were polite and helpful...

Disliked: Felt very unassured when told "there may or may not be someone in your bed already, it's the last one available tonight so I hope not. You will just have to go upstairs and see". I thought I'd heard everything in hostels but that was rather peculiar. Why have immaculate clean rooms but mouldy shower curtains? They're so cheap these days they're practically disposable.

Liked: As an older 'hosteller', I was treated extremely well and politely by the mainly young staff in reception and in the cafe. This does not happen everywhere!!. I love the location, the cafe (reasonable prices), and the breakfast.

Liked: Close to the train and tube stations. Ensuite in the room very good and helpful, warm building

Disliked: There was only 1 plug in the room and no mirror near by, the mirror was on the other side of the room. I think a mirror could be put on the wall near the plug for those that want to style their hair

Liked: First, location. There is no better in London.Other facilities say they are within a short walk, and then it is ten or fifteen minutes of dragging luggage. But this property literally is two or three minutes (depending on traffice lights) across the street from St. Pancras and Kings Cross stations (and access to trains to Edinburgh and Heathrow.)

Disliked: Was travelling with adult son, and would have preferred at the least a coed room for us to have beds, or a private coed room for us.

Liked: Great link to Euston and St. Pancras train stations! Beds are already made up with great green colour bedding... sweet dreams! Ensuite dorms, 24h reception, very affordable snacks.

Disliked: The air conditioner made noises all during the night even when switched off! Strange opening doors in hallway ... restricted space.

Liked: Ensuite rooms. Secure lockers provided in rooms (but need to bring your own lock). The building has a lift which was extremely helpful. Lounge area was nice and spacious with flat-screen tv and many channels to choose from.

Disliked: The rooms were a bit small, with only just enough space for 3 bunks and a few people's luggage on the floor. The cafe area near the reception is a bit small, but seating is also available in the lounge area. There are no kitchen facilities to make your own tea or coffee, but the staff in the cafe were kinda enough to provide hot water when I asked.
