My favorite things about this hostel were that it was fun and in a great location.. It is located right next to King's Cross and Euston stations so you can take the tube anywhere and only walk a short distance. Theres also a bunch of bars, clubs and restaurants right within walking distance as well. The hostel has it's own bar which was pretty cool. I met a lot of interesting individuals in it and had a lot of fun.
The beds were kinda cool, they had comfortable down comforters on them and were pod bunks....so you were in an enclosed bed with wall-like things around you. This was cool so you didn't have to wake up right in someone else's face. Unfortunately, my room was painted bright orange...so there wasn't much sleeping to be had past 8 am anyway.
The hostel provides breakfast and a computer room. Theres also a place to hang out and watch TV in. The staff was really cool...I had some drinks with a couple employees and ended up getting late check-out thanks to one of them :)
I'd recommend this hostel to backpackers on a budget or people traveling alone. I was in a room with 9 other girls so the fact that I was alone wasn't so bad.
