Liked: The staff was friendly and helped with everything I asked for. There are two computers that you can use when the reception is open and there were no lones for them usually. The kitchen was quite big and there was lot of space in the fridge for food. Location is near the Kings Cross station so you can get to the city centre easily with the train. On Sundays there's a free pancake breakfast which is tasty.

Disliked: This is a party hostel so there was a lot of noise every night and the people didn't care about others who just wanted to sleep. The kitchen was really messy all the time and there were a lot of dirty dishes. The wifi was free but it wasn't working well usually in the evenings. The street has a lot of adult shops and clubs so it isn't a quiet environment. The lockers in the rooms were big but you couldn't fit a normal lock on them because they had such small holes.
