4/10 Fair

The location is great. Very close to King Cross station. The staff are friendly. I also like free luggage storage. But the place stinks. The Wi-Fi sucks. I mean good Wi-Fi is like the baseline a hostel should have and you fail. There are not enough bathrooms. People have to queue up to get into a bathroom(which combines toilet and shower together, so if you want to pee, you have to wait for people to finish showering).

The hostel was in a great location but was not clean. Also, the rules are joke and the staff are also the ones breaking it. Examples of this are parties late at night when the common areas should be closed and smoking of week on the premise. Again, staff were around and/or part of the act. Depending on what you're in town for this may or might not be the place for you.

A bit on the dirty side. A very easy way to meet people. Overall it was okay, if you are a light sleeper I suggest not staying here it’s very loud.
