I stayed in a basement room for 3 nights, where the rooms were quiet and tidy - rooms above the common areas will have noise issues as the hostel has a DJ on until 3am, so don't forget your ear plugs! The beds are arranged a little weird in some rooms (there was a big gap between my bed and the wall). There are no plugs by the beds, and no individual lights, which is frustrating for many reasons. I understand there are issues with adding outlets due to the building being listed, but there are ways to deal with that. The common areas are good. Lots of seating, decent WiFi and a good atmosphere. The staff try to get people involved with daily events etc, which most seemed to appreciate. Unfortunately they seem a bit strict when it comes to bringing your own food and drinks. Drinks at the hostel as decently priced for London, but I heard bad stuff about the food (although I didn't eat there, so it might be good normally. There are lots of cheap places nearby though if it's not the case). There are no places for guests to cook, but maybe you can get hot water for noodles if you ask nicely. I will stay here again, but there are improvements to be made. Price is good.

This hostel is certainly worth staying at. Has a great bar which isn't expensive and food is available. They have washing machines and dryers which are expensive to use however this is understandable and a welcome addition when staying in a hostel. The lack of air conditioning should be noted however I stayed during a heat spell, which isn't too common. Security is great and reception staff are phenomenal. Location is perfect, not too noisy but also close to get around and see all of London. The 4 bedroom room was cramped, so would probably recommend the 6 bedroom however if you have great roommates its not an issue at all.

Clean, comfortable beds, professional service. Stayed in a 4-bed room and it was tiny. Barely room to breath. Stayed in a 6-bed room and another time and there was a lot more space. Definitely more commercial than most hostels - you can't rent a towel, only buy one; you can't rent a padlock, only buy one; no outside food allowed, only food from the restaurant. Nowhere to chill except the hostel cafe/bar or your room.

The hostel is located very close to King's cross. Each floor has a different thematic and the rooms are very comfortable. The staff is very nice, to the point that I didn't feel comfortable in the first room they gave me and without questions asked they changed me to another. The atmosphere is quite nice, particularly if you're on holiday, but they have different areas for chilling too. I feel breakfast is a little bit overpriced but then again is a buffet breakfast with hot meal and continental breakfast. Downside is that they don't rent towels, they sell them, so don't forget to bring yours!

The staff is very kind and the rooms are very nice and clean. I luckily find Jessica who is an Italian girl who works there and she is incredible! She's very good to welcome people and to make them feel comfortable. It's been a pleasure talk with her because you can see the passion she has for her work. Talking about the hostel, there's a lovely and simple breakfast with a good amount of choice. Very nice the zones of the bar and the chill room.
