Every thing good
I like the location , the hall meeting
Basement room very noisy, dirty
Location=very close to everything. Shopping in covent gardens and leicester square etc were all withing walking distance. Plus there was a small shopping square nearby that had a TESCO and other restaurants. Very convenient. Staff were super friendly and the nights at the bar were fun plus the movie room was a good place to relax.
The size of the rooms. I had a 2 bunk (4 bed) dorm and the 2 bunks were so close together you could reach out and touch the person opposite you. Made getting ready in the morning extremely difficult. Also laundry fascilities the dryers dont work properly take hours to dry clothes. On the nights i stayed there a very loud drill alarm would go off at around 3am every morning jolting you awake. Not sure why as i was too busy sightseeing to complain about this but it was not fun!
Beautiful location with a big food store and easy access to city centre oder a train station.
It was very loud through the night, because of loud shutting doors!!! The room (1 bed and 1 bunk bed) was very small, there was no possibility to open all small! luggage storage at the same time :( Hard rules in the hostel: no alcohol and food at the rooms Rooms and Washrooms was not very tidy (always hairs at the floor). Besides, there were no storage for clothes, shower gels, etc.
thanks so much murphy, amandine, alex, helena, and everyone else at GenLon for such outstanding energy and support!
The design is great, it's a pleasant atmosphere and a cool place to meet new people.
There is one female bathroom for the entire floor (I stayed on the Bond level). The bathroom has about eights showers and three toilets for LOTS AND LOTS of people. I had to pick awkward times for showering so I didn't have to queue. It was a long walk back to my room so I had to get dressed in the showers to avoid an embarrassing moment in the corridor.
The hostel is near the underground station, very convenient.
The staff of the bar are not so nice....
The interior of the hostel, in the lobby
Breakfast was terrible
Small dorm, four bed, good location and nice staff. Great for stay in London !
Door pass kept messing up. I had to get security to let me in room after 3 visits downstairs to desk which wasted valuable time !
central location (close to King's Cross/St Pancras station); friendly personnel; large lockable drawer; comfortable bed linen provided; duvet warm enough for cold winter night; welcoming common spaces on the ground floor; clean bathroom facilities; bunked is clearly identified, each has its own ID number
The room i had a bunk bed in was not bigger than ca. 10m2
Beds are ok and showers,w.c.
Needed hangers in the showers to let the shampoos and these things. Breakfast could be a little better, but for the price of the stay you can't complain too much....
Location is great, five minute walk to two different tube stations. Wifi is amazing. The bathroom facilities were very very clean. Lots of hot water.
Design, location, quick check in, helpful staff.
No curtains on the bunk beds.
It's a little bit hard to find.
Stayed for one night, was exactly what I needed for one night. In a good location, friendly staff, value for money in comparison to other accommodation on offer in London.
bathrooms are few
Nice clean rooms Socializing was so easy
Location is good 5 mins walk from Russel squer (tube station). Friendly staff, ready to help Nice lobby, good atmosphere No noise in room rooms are isolated staff tried to help me and gave me aheater after i complained that its cold in room- it really appreciate this Security is good 24 hours check who enter and nobody without crad can enter the hostel. Very good Wi-fi
Bathrooms are not clean Toliets are stuck and you cant flash the water in toliet. The cleaning-woman clean the mirros,faucet sand sink, with towel!!!! and not with cleaning supplies In 5 floor bathroom are very small i needed to go down to the 4 floor - .there is a better bathrooms In all bathrooms in 4 floor and 5 floor- no enough space to dress in bathroom- only one empty cell in 4 floor to dress after shower. Room was very cold you need to sleep with scarf, socks and hat- heater in room dosent work, and also no heat in corridors Toilets in lobby very very freez and cold! Beds in room were not clean, alot of dust. I was in a private room with mom and sister) In last night someone enter to my room in middle of night and ask if there is somebody in room, maybe someone from staff but it should not happen!!!!! No free water to drink in all the hostel- u must pay for it. Be-aware!! Bar-man returnd wrong money in the lobby where I orederd Cappuccino.
Very friendly, very clean and good location a very few stops from the cbd. Free wifi, good connection with the airport and subway.
Nothing. Everything was good.
The decoration, confort of the bedrooms and social area, the pub inside the hostel.
The bathrooms should be better... Your feet stands on the water of the other shower, you don't have a proper place to put your clothes while taking a bath.
The international atmosphere and the fact that guests were of all ages.
No cooked breakfast available. Few restaurants or pubs offering food nearby.
The size of the rooms
Location is great easy walking distance to kings cross station which connects to all central underground lines. Nice for a hostel.
Don't bother with the breakfast it is terrible. Plenty of places around kings cross to get a better breakfast for same price.
This hostel is very good, location is great and it has a nice atmosphere! The hostel is very clean and feels newly renovated. It has everything you need and even more! There is a cinema, a lounge, a bar, lots of spaces to meet people. There is always someone at the door so it feels very safe.
The bathrooms/showers were very clean, but it could get a bit crowded in the morning. Maybe there should be more bathroom/shower facilites on each floor.
The coffee bar Cleanliness Security
Being two women in a dorm for four then being woken at 4 am by two guys trying the door 3 times then getting in after 30 mins and not sleeping. That seemed unnecessary .
