The staffs are very nice and helpful!
The internet connection was down a few times when I was there so it was a bummer 'cos I needed the internet at the time
I think the hostel intends to keep a good privacy to every backpacker. So every bed in my room is of curtain.
The description says it's near King’s Cross Railway Station. So I got down the Underground train in King's Cross Station. After walking, I found the nearest Underground station should be the Russell Underground station.
Very good location, just 5 minutes' walk from British Museum. Breakfast is modest but is absolutely a plus.
The room is a little stinky(it depends on your roommates). NO internet! There should be a free wifi network but staff said it doesnt work, and the network problem was not fixed during my stay. In this case, to surf Internet, you need to pay 1 pound to use their desktops for 30 minutes.
the location is pretty pefect to reach anywhere in central london. the staff are very friendly and helpful.
the fact that the showers are in the the basement and you have to pay extra for a locker in your dorm. also the breakfast could do with starting at 6:30 rather than 7:30 during the week.
You have to pay a £10 deposit for the key to your room, I didn't mind that but it would have been helpful to have had this information on the website so that you have an extra £10 on you if you are paying the whole of your bill by cash.
