 "Good location, easy walk to kings cross"
Pros: Good location, easy walk to kings cross. basic breakfast included.
Cons: Room was way too small for 8-10 people (& the guy on the desk said they were always 10 bed rooms...). 4 bunks (so 8 beds, 4 top bunks 4 bottom) were connected- so every time a person rolls over/sneezes it shakes all the beds- i got very little sleep as a result of this, and i'm a heavy sleeper and have been travelling and staying innhostels for months.
