    Staff was friendly and helpful and room was cozy. We stayed for an overnight and it was a good option for the price. This hostel was much better than nearby backpackers/hostels at similar prices. Close to Kings cross station which was very helpful.

    If you are too big to get onto a top bunk you shouldn't stay at a hostel.
