clean and tidy
no lift for carrying baggage
Ensuite rooms are really nice.
Security guards lacking training and pestering some guests. Not nice to listen to.
There's a free breakfast, a kitchen to cook your food and nice people. It's also very well placed in the hear of London. I had a nice stay here.
1) The Location 2) Staff Politeness (Except I think a male Manager) 3) Cleaniness
1) Only shower in the basement. Room was in upper floor need to walk all the way just for a shower. 2) The Bed has a lot of loose joints that makes a lot of noices. 3) Should have shower on every floor.
Get off the tube cross the road and your there could not be better! In the hub of it all!
Single glazed windows next to a main road not a good idea for a good sleep but if ya put on ya hostel free ear defenders then your protected for the night!
Staff at reception was really helpfull, good location.
Cheap price. Friendly and helpful staff. Good location (in the center of the town).
Small beds, noisy in the morning because of the maintenance in the basement, no laundry and I need to pay extra, if I want to use a locker. Also, some days the showers were cold and other days it was too hot. I couldn't adjust how hot or how cold I need the water.
Te property is very clean the staff is polite and helpful Very good location Easy to travel around London
Great location just few mins walk from Russell square underground!
close to city and shops
showers are cold
they have cereal at the breakfast toilets were clean
3 stairs bunk bed system 3x3 = 9 beds the top one is like on a skyscraper:) poor breakfast -bread,jam,cereal,coffee lobby area is like a kindergarden tables
Proportion price to quality is appropriate, it's ok for one or two nights. Also you can meet here very interesting people.
A lot of stairs which it tiring. For longer stay it doesn't seem to be comfortable enough.
Relatively quiet hostel. Facilities are good. Plentiful breakfast.
Was the best one of all
Location Staff (most of them at least)
No laundry People checking in and out in the middle of the night waking you up Poor breakfast Uncomfortable showers Lack of sockets in dorms Lack of toilets
Showers in the basement. No toilets, no mirrors. Very noisy with doors slamming all night.
Their staff in night shift were so rude. I hate it. Room has no window for 9 beds. I think it's illegal. Close dawn! It was worst staff I have ever met in hostel.
Central location, wi-fi was ok. The entrance was watched in the evenings (a person checking you are a guest at the hostel).
It should be forbidden to put 15 people in such a small room. 3 beds one above another! No place to put or dry your stuff, not enough lockers in the room. Only two sockets for 15 people. Stuff at the reception was not very attentive: I had to wait for about 10 minutes while they (3 of them) were coming & going and doing other things. Huge uninviting common showers (though they were almost always empty in the evenings). Cheapest breakfast of one sort of cereals, cheap bread and one sort of jam. All in all: might be bearable if you need to stay one night (especially as the location is not far from Kings Cross), but would not recommend for a longer stay.
This is a dirty setup Please travellers avoid this place. My family caught food poisoning ! Mr g peters
Probably the worst hostel I have ever stayed in.Run by 3-4 rude male staff with poor english,this hostel has extremely inflexible rules.The room was unbearably hot (though it was 15C outside),and there was no water in a sink tap.The closest bathroom was 2 floors away.The showers are in the basement (5 floors down),unregulated tap with very hot water,it truly looked like a prison shower in some Hollywood film.This hostel appears to be so unsafe that they employ a special bouncer on doors.
Sheets very crisp, clean and in good condition. Made a huge difference as there was a heatwave in London and no air con in bedrooms of hostel. After a shower laying on fresh sheets was excellent. Staff also very helpful and overall hostel was clean with a good atmosphere and felt safe.
No air con in bedrooms.
Cheap, good location.
Staff had attitude, works start inside the building at 9am, wifi is only in dingy common area, I think they employed a child as a security guard at night.
Staff were nice. Okay location - thats it
We were in the basement with 16 others, so hot and humid. No air conditioning. 2 power points for the whole room. Toilets were 2 floors up about. Showers were cold with simply curtains for privacy. Had to ask reception for the boiler to be turned on. Beds were too short. Could not be stretched out when sleeping. Simply: never stay here!
Everything is ok and nice costumer service
