For what I have paid,I cannot complain,I did sleep well and wake up in the morning could not complain for that
The only thing I noted was when I arrived I gave my name,the receptionist told me to pay in Cash(£10) she could not take payment on the card since it was just £10,any other alternative,what if I did not have cash on
Fantastic location right near Kings Cross station, excellent value, great overall look and feel, very laid back & surprisingly quiet
The common rooms were great. It was really nice to have the opportunity to meet new people, when spending time in the TV and internet-room, and in the kitchen. All of these rooms were newly renovated, and the self-catering kitchen was quite well equipped.
I stayed in a 4-bed room. It was really small and there was barely room for one person to stand at one time. However, because you spend very little time in the room, it was good enough. The bed quite hard, but I slept well still. The bathrooms and showers were clean, but they were old and shabby, but hopefull they are planing to renovate them soon.
I really liked the humanity of the staff
I did not like the toilets and showers were broken because
friendliness of the staff, already recommended to several others
