1 Person in 4-Bed Dormitory - Female Only
Stayed 4 nights in September 2021

Strongly recommend people who need to work to live here because they have the best wifi”

Cons: 1. No hair dryer, the bathroom and toilet are very limited 2. No fan in the room, it’s very hot at night even on September 3. I was in the female room. The room is very small, and the locker is small as well 4. The bathroom are quite limited, there are only two toilets and two shower room in a floor Pros: 1. You don’t need to pay if you want to put your luggage here after check out 2. Very great location, very close to the kings cross station, and just next to coop 3. They provide kitchen and laundry, while I didn’t use them 4. They have the best wifi 5. The staffs are very nice and willing to help Overall: I will strongly recommend people who need to work to live here because they have the best wifi!! However, I will recommend women not to go out alone after sunset, I feel not that comfortable when I walk on the streets in the evening.

1 Person in 8-Bed Dormitory - Mixed
Stayed 3 nights in January 2023

Well-designed kitchen, lobby, and lounge area make it a great place for solo travelers.”

The bathroom is clean and the shower is well-ventilated with many windows, which is especially important considering the weak water pressure in London. Each room has a numbered key, so there is no need to carry a card key around, which is convenient. Earplugs and eye masks are essential items, but they can also be purchased at the accommodation. There is a Coop store right next to the accommodation, so you can use it for daily necessities, food, fruits, vegetables, etc. until late at night.

Bed in Mixed Dormitory Room for 18 people
Stayed 4 nights in April 2022

Completely satisfied for the price”

Stayed in a mixed dormitory with 18 people, used a bed on the second floor. It was tiring to climb up the ladder every time, and it was a pity that the bed was only half the size, but I was satisfied. There is a small locker on the bed where you can store your luggage, and there is a USB port and outlet on each bed, which was convenient. There was also lighting, but it was broken on my bed. The locker was big, there were two sinks in the room, and the bathroom and shower were also convenient. There was also a big hair dryer, so it was very convenient. There is a big mart nearby and a kitchen, so I used it well. It was near Kings Cross Station, so I took the Eurostar and walked, and it was good to be able to store my luggage. The staff were friendly, and it was a practical accommodation, not a fancy one.

Their Location, common kitchen, and attitude of staff were the best”

I'm back in London and staying in another hostel, and I can say for sure that the previous one is better. It's so comparable. The location here is also near the city, so you can enjoy walking without using public transportation. And it is a great advantage that the reception is 24 hours. The hostel where I am staying now locks the door at 1 a.m., and kicks out person who made reservation that fail to check-in without allowing them to stay indoors. There was a black man jerking off himself in the room during his stay in this hostel. While he was talking to me and he showed me his own. That was really disgusting. So I reported the reception right away, and they kicked him out. They moved me to another room for just one day. when I asked for print something, They printed it for free. The hygiene is not completely clean, but the kitchen is especially clean and very spacious. The staff are all very kind :) I'm sad that I couldn't stay at the hostel again when I came back🥲

Hi Minjoung, Thank you very much for your review. We are happy to see that your stay at our hostel pleased you despite the incident with said male. Our staff are always there for guests if they need them, and we are happy the staff on duty delivered and made your experience better :D Regarding the cleanliness of the facilities, we have a housekeeping team that do rounds in the mornings and evenings. However, with all the guests coming and going, it is possible that some areas might get dirty in between shifts. In these cases you can always come to reception (open 24/7) and we will deal with it as soon as possible :) Thanks again for your review. Hope to see you again in the future ~ Clink261Team
