It's really cheap to stay here and it's very close by to King's Cross (which is so great for getting around!!). It also feels really safe and at no point in time was I worried about my safety or even my stuff's safety, so kudos for that especially at a hostel.
Having said that, I would strongly recommend NOT STAYING HERE (though of course as you should take what I say with a grain of salt).
However, I was staying at a room near the common area and I was really surprised that Sat, Sun, and even Mon night they had really loud music playing till 2am. The signs I thought talked about quiet hours after 10pm (which no one I think really expects especially over the weekend) but to have loud music pumping at 1:30 am on a Monday night was kind of ridiculous.
On top of that, the first night I was there. I got to be quite late after a flight and of course the loud music and happy birthday singing and I wanted to sleep in BUT this beautiful probably-french dirty-blonde haired 20 something year old woke me up in my bed and told me to get out and that I had over stayed my checkout time. Thinking I made a mistake, I apologized profusely (while turning pretty pink) and tried to quickly bundle all my stuff up and then checked my reservation. Turned out she was wrong and has wasted my time and she NEVER apologized. I previously had interacted with someone at check in who incorrectly checked me in. This stuff is to be expected when you hire cheap labor.
Also a note to the hostel, if someone gives you a negative review on your feedback form, you might not want to direct link them to tripadvisor to leave a review. But kudos to you, for looking for honesty!
