Worst worst WORST place on earth! Since the beginning I didn't like it but it was ok for a couple of nights UNTIL I SAW A RAT in my room! I stayed there because it was late and the receptionist told me they couldn't do anything in that moment. The next day they changed my room and...saw rats again! It...

I have been in this guest house one night with a friend. We are both very easy going so we thought it would be fine just for a night. Belive me, it wasn't at all! It is decadent, dirty, noisy... They welcomed us saying: girls don't get scared! We saw the cleaner putting the clean sheets and towels on the...

Obviously not much comfort can be expected given the price and the name of the place - but low room temperature can not be forgiven even in this occasion. Also noise from the subway and footsteps along with other noise from surrounding rooms was an issue, that's why only one star instead of two. It'll be fine for a few...

Hostel is 5 mins to Kings Cross - that's perfect. It is hostel - you cannot wait five star hotel luxury. But the room was clean, as well the towels and bathroom. I think that If you want to only sleep in the room, not to spend long day in here, it is perfect.

The room was dirty... The bed was broken... The noise was terrible (with the train each 2 minutes and with other guests)... ONLY there was one toilet in the hostel. BUT the hostel is close to the city center.

The price you truly pay for a night here isn't in cash, it's rather a matter of endurance. Yes, it's one of the cheapest places in Central London. If you put together 1+1 you ought to figure out that there will be downsides to that. Here are some thoughts from during our stay: "Am I dirtier than the shower yet?"...

the decor is as shabby as others have said but staff have definitely tried to do what they can -the room had definitely been cleaned, and there were tea and coffee making facilities and a tv which worked. If you need a cheap room in London, it does tick the box, and the staff are doing their best with the...
