We stayed in a private room with private bathroom here for a week and couldn't complain. Whilst the room was small we still had enough room for our bags and to get changed etc. The room was clean and suited us well given we really only needed a place to sleep. The location was also fantastic as it was so...

The pub isn't anything special and I don't fancy the beer options they have. Strange microbrews. However the rooftop patio is fantastic. It's like a small English garden. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

Location was brilliant, literally 2 minutes walk from Kings Cross, next door to a Sainsbury's. The bed was sooooo comfy, slept so well. Only downside was that I was on the third floor so had loads of stairs to climb up with my huge heavy bag on. Common room underground had fridge, microwave, and kettle.

Keystone House was terrible. Our room and the facilities looked nothing like the photos that were provided. The room was absolutely tiny, hardly room for two suitcases. It was also quite unclean. Our air conditioning made the room an ice box and without our own remote in the room we weren't able to adjust it to our liking. The showers...

The first impression of Keystone House wasn't great, the front desk manager (Hugo) was extremely rude and abrupt-I don't think this is the industry for you. Once checked in we found our room, it was nice and clean-very basic but we fully expected that anyway so no drama. We had a bathroom immediately to our left which was very handy-until...

I stayed here for two days while I was in London and my only major issue was that it took about 30 minutes to check in because there was only one person working the front desk and about 10 people needed help. I could have just arrived at a bad time...who knows? Aside from that, the facilities were not anything...

My Mum and I stayed here for a London adventure weekend. We planned to use it mainly as a base, hence choosing a cheap hostel. Private room was much cheaper than the £170 for anywhere else (£111 for the weekend). Room had bunkbeds, a single on top and double underneath so good for couples too. Bathroom was a good size...

From check in to check out and on a daily basis, this was a complicated (unnecessarily so) stay. If I actually listed the details, you wouldn't believe me. The person at check in was not friendly. My daughter and I trekked around the place (from the 3 floor down to the basement-all stairs) on a daily basis due to switching...

The location is the one saving grace for this hostel. Otherwise it wasn't great at all and we wouldn't stay here again. A friend and I were staying in an all female dorm - lots of the blinds were broken so lights from the busy Kings Cross location shone in all night. Rooms very noisy, and you needed the windows...

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in a private room with a private bathroom. We had never stayed in a hostel before and i'm so glad we had such a good experience here :) This hostel is in a fantastic location! You get off the train at a major station which is kings cross and the hostel...
