    Good

    In order of importance, least to most: It does not look like a hotel from the outside. There is only a small sign, and neither doorbell works; you have to knock. The bathroom was quite scary. I did not wish to set foot in the shower. I received a room on the top floor, and had two heavy rolling suitcases. Each of the staircases has a trick stair, a 19th century architectural detail meant to trip intruders. Instead, it tripped me, every time I used the stairs. I had to leave at 5:30 am, and tried to be as quiet as possible, but I still managed to trip down the stairs. There is no lift for luggage, and no one to help with it.

    The location was nice, not far from Kings Kross station.

    The room. It wasn't clean. Shower was also dirty. It was very noisy. We heard everything outside (cars, people) and we heard everything what every night did our neighbours. As regards me, I'll not stay here second time. But for budget travel it's ok.

    The staff were very pleasant, helpful and professional, , and the staff seem to have done the best they can to clean the place, however how do you clean a skip?the whole place is a dump,

    The place needs some money spending on it, it is very poor. There is no sound proofings inside and very noisy outside as it is on top of a train line I only paid £20 and would not stay here for free, who every owns this place needs to spend money on it.

    Please no one stay at this hovel. Everything about it was disgusting. The group toilet was leaking, the bathroom (loosely described as this) had a filthy shower which could not be used as it was so freezing cold and dirty. My son took photos of this if anyone is interested. The room was hideous, brown rolled up carpet, wardrobe doors not shutting. Tv didn't work. Manned by one office staff who slept in the office, bed clealry made up in same room! Noisy, cold and disgusting . wish I had gone only 100 yards up the road to local travelodge. It was a basic nightmare of a place and no amount of complaining would have changed that just dont go!

    Everything. Dirty rug covers with stains clealry visible to the outside. Clean sheets but nothing else as outlined above. It was absolutleu awful, the kind of accomodation I would have expected in a deeply deprived slum in new Delhi.

    The htel is situated very close to King's Cross St. Pancras station and very close to both railway stations.

    Almost everything except the location. Dirty uncomfortable rooms, shared bathroom and toilet (even it was mentioned that all those facilities are in the room), there was no internet. The hotel located very close to railways, so it was very noisy.

    The guy who greeted us nice and welcoming.

    I suppose I have to say that the hotel was pretty run down as if it was running on a fast disappearing budget.

    Its dirty, the house probably will fall down soon, the bathroom is terrible, and people who works there dont help you at all. I,ve paid 25 pounds for one night, and I think it was to much for a so poor hotel.

    Very good

    A good sized room with clean sheets, good beds. Fantastic central London location. A good place to stay for travellers on a budget that don't want to stay in a big hostel dormatory.

    Bathroom was very small.
