Nice London hostel, very clean, very central (5min. Walk to Kings Cross) breakfast is ok, very polite and helpful staff and the interior-design is quite stylish.,But 4GBP for a towel(which didn't work!) Again 4GBP for a padlock, sorry that's not cool at all and the visitors-policy reminded me at a monastery
