I just needed somewhere to stay for the night after flying into Luton and before flying out of Heathrow and this was exactly what I needed. Near kings cross and in a quiet area. Staff is friendly and helpful.

This was my first time ever staying in a hostel, and in my rush to make a reservation for the next night, I accidentally booked into an 18-bed mixed room.

The room was good, maybe a little bit too small for 4 people, the facilities were clean (bathroom and showers). We could make our own food which is great even though it missed a bit of kitchen ware. Lots of pubs,...
