 "Pleasantly surprised"
For the cost of this centrally located London hostel, I wasn't expecting much but it was amazing! Clean, friendly, ideally located with a good mix of singles, groups and families. I would definitely recommend it and look forward to staying again when I'm next in London. It's good to know they are in many European destinations too :)

 "Very friendly"
This was my first time staying at a hostel. It was extremely clean, very safe, and conveniently located minutes from St. Pancras/Euston/Kings Cross train stations. Staff was super friendly and helpful, even came & fetched me from the street when I was lost. Would definitely stay again and have already recommended it to several people. Thanks!

 "Basic, clean and quite"
We stayed in this hotel for one night. The facilities are basic but good and clean. The rules of the house are strict which is pleasant for all guests. The beds are good. Location close to St. Pancras, which is nice when you need to travel to the airport.

 "Cheap- but no sleep"
The staff working in the reception as well as the security staff were very helpful and service-minded. The location was good, close to major tube and train stations. The doors to the roooms were extremely thin and the loud noise from the corridors and the entrance kept us awake during the nights. The room smelled of mould. The beds were good and the toilets and the showers (those that worked..) were clean and tidy. Breakfast was alright, but very crowded.

 "Great place for young people - and the young at heart"
excellent value for money, very clean, good breakfast, great location. Doormen rather intimidating - someone should teach them to smile and be more welcomming! I would definitely stay here again!

 "Great bar and 'chill out' area - nice and social"
Pros: Great bar and 'chill out' area - nice and social. rooms were basic but very clean and tidy.
Cons: Loud noise at night, particularly with my room being right above the subway and next to the smoking area.
