Underrated Hostel”

Great hostel, one of the few still open, but a good one near the Brunswick estate so good for shops (waitrose, sainsbury's etc). Near also to Kings Cross, and Oxford St, The Beitish museum. My favourite aspect is the kitchen so you can cook instead of the usual fast food or cold food. The lower ground rooms can be a bit musty though but it is generally a bright, modern, clean hostel. Recommended. Special shout out to Kurt at the reception.

Very nice hostel with experienced and nice staff”

Quick check-in when I arrived close to midnight. Good beds and although 8 persons shared one room, it was close to sleeping in a private room due to the curtains covering the bed. An extra bonus was the free really good breakfast before leaving at Christmas Day. Later I found out that all public transportation including Heathrow Express were closed down that day and the taxi charged double fee for driving to Heathrow! Fortunately, when visiting Hyde Park I went to Smart hostel Hyde Park View and they helped me to order an Uber. Very customer friendly staff at both hostels.

The hostel is clean and has everything you need. They give you clean linen and free breakfast (bring your own towel). There is a plug near each bed and a drawer (bring own padlock). The beds are quite small, but comfortable. There is a big living room with many tables and more plugs, some sofas and a fully equipped kitchen. The best is its location, 15 minutes walk to covent garden. I would recommend the hostel
