Liked: Easy to get to. Security codes on doors is a good system over keys. Curtains around beds good.

Disliked: No hot water in the showers!! Really really noisey at night, echoing doors slamming, people talking, yelling thoughout the hostel can be heard even with earplugs in! My room seemed to be near some sort of generated so there was an unpleasant humming noise that went constantly and you could feel as you tried to sleep! Definitely not somewhere you want to stay if you want a good nights sleep!

Liked: I liked the communal lounge and living room, it had a chilled out atmosphere and had lots of books and dvds for use if/when required.

Disliked: The private room booked didn't look the same as it did on the website. The room was cold, dank and lifeless. It served its purpose as a room to sleep in but other than that it wasnt great. The showers had no pressure and were cold.

Liked: Great value. Excellent location close to a major station and underground, Tesco metro right down the street for all your shopping needs, lots of reasonable ethnic restaurants right around (indian, chinese, thai, italian). Reasonably clean for the price. Free Wifi, breakfast was a great added value. I had linens waiting for me on my bed even though I had thought they would be extra cost.

Disliked: Can be quite busy and a lively atmosphere (noisey) so those who don't want that sort of environment should look elsewhere.

Liked: It was very homey despite being a hostel. Everyone was friendly and spoke freely to you.

Disliked: There are no elevators, the stairs are a bit narrow to maneuver luggage up or down, and the showers could use a bit of a scrub.

Liked: Bed with curtain in dorm provides much needed privacy,breakfast was basic but good enough, very close to kings cross which is an added bonus for travellers,facilities were clean

Disliked: 17 ppl dorm was too cramped but what can u expect with the price,it should be made compulsory for all the huge 20-30kg bags to be placed in storage instead of the dorm(my bed was at the end of the room and there was no space to walk there!)

Liked: The location is grand, the staff is very helpful. And I saw that they had plans to improve stuff, they where busy doing the little improvements. That is always good to notice.

Disliked: Although were busy with improving, redoing all the paintwork inside can give the place a fresh look. And that is necessary.

Liked: Hi guys, the property is located 5 minutes walking from King's Cross metro station. In the same street you will find Tesco, if you wanna buy something to eat or drink. the kitchen-common area was clean, but sometimes crowded. the second common are was really nice to drink few beers in relax. breakfast OK and free, and free WIFI (but sometimes it wasn't working). power plug in each single bed.

Disliked: the bathroom, the showers, were a bit dirty and located in a really humid place. I suggest to the property to do something to the showers. I stayed in the room with 17 beds, and the room was a chaos, and impossible to sleep, thank to unrespectful people. During my journey, someone stolen the IPAD and MACbook of one of the guest, during the night: he left the devices near the kitchen, so, please be careful.

Liked: They have a common kitchen where you can also watch a dvd with many tables, and a small smoking area. they have also a washing machine and a dryer. and they have also a nice bar/living room.

Disliked: this hostel is one of the best I've ever stayed all around Europe: the only thing they could improve is cleaning more often the toilets, but in comparison with all the hostels I've visited this one was the most clean.

Liked: Good location.

Disliked: Dirty bathrooms and bedroom, too many people in a small room (room of 25 m2 with 12 beds). Beds on three floors that can barely climb. People leave stuff all over the floor so you can't pass through and smells awful.

Liked: Compared with other hostels in the area, the Journey King's Cross is quite luxurious as the beds in the dorms have privacy curtains, a lamp and powerpoint. Tea and coffee is available from the kitchen all day and there is a free breakfast with juice.

Disliked: The dormitory rooms are secured with a password combination which you need to quickly memorise or carry the slip of paper with you.
