Diana Bartolo, Mexican

We stayed during a refurbishment so no proper running water, electric or heating. Dreadful hostel but at least it's cheap!

Salome Moha, French

The hotel was excellent and its central location 

Karen Finch, British

We stayed during a period of refurbishment so there was no heating, electrics or proper running water. The only positive is that it's cheap and next to Kings Cross Station.

I usually don't write these reviews or care too much about what other people say about places, since I mostly only need a bed to sleep on and that's it, when I am travelling. But this place I simply felt I had to. When I came back later to my room to sleep, I guessed the room would be in order. I got my keep and went up the stairs in this building, which mostly reminded me of a building site, I came to my room. It was not clean at all. The floor was very, very dusty - just like you see it when you are renovating places. The toilet I will not even mention.

I was very disappointed with my stay here. The room I was allocated was dirty and the bedding hadn't been changed. Despite this, the receptionist was friendly and the room was warm. I would not recommend this hostel, only as a last resort and if you're on a budget.
