pretty good for a hostel, good staff
Pretty good for a hostel. Customer service was pretty good, staff was helpful. It was a LITTLE bit dirty at times, but nothing terrible. There was a lot of people going in and out so it probably couldn’t be helped. Good location in Kings Cross, about 5 minutes walk from train station.
