    July 25, 2019 Heat Wave

    Our stay would have been great if not for the heat wave that week. No one's fault but YHA should have reserved at least an electric fan for each room booked that day. We were told both days of our stay that they didn't have an available fan for our room. Also, to be able to use their wi-fi, one has to go and stay downstairs in the common area. Since we were given a 5th floor room, it was a bit of a hassle.

    Was mostly fine, good location and cheap price but there is not wifi in the rooms, and breakfast is an extra charge. Can get pretty noisy at night/in the morning. Difficult to get in if you're out late. Rooms were clean though.

    We’d stay again!

    Everything’s was good. Our only problem was that it was extremely hot that day and we had a really difficult time sleeping one tiny fan and one larger one didn’t help much. We only stayed one night and it just happened to be ridiculously hot for London. Therefore I’m sure it was mostly bad timing on our part. St. Pancras station pretty much across the street was amazing. We also did a hop on hop off bus tour that was right across the street. A lively pub next door was nice and had air conditioning and so did the tv/breakfast room at the hostel.

    Very close to King's Cross, and also the whole place is as quiet as possible in the centre of London. The room could have been cleaner (though that may have been the fault of the other women in the room).

  • 4.0.Fair

    Although we have stayed in this hostel before we have seen it’s decline and this time more specifically. The hostel doesn’t appear well kept and will require a revamp to remain current. For example the room we were in - the door to the shower was riddled with what looked to be some type of borrer or carpenter ant. The ceiling also had bad water damage. Only one staff member was extremely helpful but found the others we dealt with not that helpful.

    Awesome place!

    Really fantastic place to stay! Extremely close to public transport and easy to get into central/touristy London. The staff were awesome and very kind. Neither I nor my friend felt unsafe here (two 20-year-old female travellers). There is staff at the desk 24/7. The only caveat was that the wifi was a bit slow, but that is it!

    I liked the cleanliness and decor of this hostel. The place was in great condition and there was a communal TV room, a laundry and a cafe area. It was a pity that there was no communal kitchen, but hot water was available to collect from the cafe if you have your own thermos. Staff were all pleasant and helpful and there was always someone in attendance on the front desk 24 hours a day. Will happily stay here again.

    Great location very close to a major tube station. Made it easy to get around London. Excellent coffee in the lobby. Rooms were nice and fairly clean for what I would expect in a hostel. However our ceiling was leaking the whole time. We had a bucket in our room for a while and then it was gone and they gave us towels. We had a 3 ft diameter wet spot on the floor. The dripping was loud! Not awesome. But I would still stay here again. You can’t beat the price or friendliness.

    Great location. Very comfy beds. Private room for two spacious. Very damp though and bad smell from radiator. One of the communal bathrooms was fine, the other grotty.
