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.

Liked: Very, very clean. Having 1 bathroom per dorm was excellent, and it being an ensuite was nice too. Location is perfect, 2 minute walk from King's Cross St Pancras which is great for those of us with early trains. Warm bedding, comfy beds. Nice, if minimalist, decor. The atmosphere was definitely not that of a party hostel - great for me, cos I wanted a good night's sleep before my horrendously early train, but maybe not for other travellers.

Disliked: Having to pay for every single extra, from a towel to internet (not just for the hostel computers but wi-fi) to breakfast to the luggage room. Not having kitchen facilities in a hostel seems a little odd, though they do tell you that on the site. Also, rather than just a small charge for towels and internet to cover costs, all the charges seemed excessively high for a hostel, like 5 pounds for a day's wi-fi.

Liked: it's just 2 min. walk from St.Pancros and King's Cross. So if you're taking train early in the morning, this is the perfect choice.

Disliked: Staffs were not that friendly, and this hostel was just a place for sleeping. 27 pounds for one night, however It didn't have any kitchen facilites, even no refrige to keep your food. No towels, no soaps.. no value for money.

Liked: Everything a-ok! Thought customer service on initial arrival was a little poor. I was asked if we wanted Breakfast, without being explained to that it would cost our party of 4 an extra £20 per day! Only realised at the last minute just before the attendant put through our increased bill. Wonderfully pleasant & clean hostel though. ***** Stars.

Disliked: Nothing.
