I had a lovely time here!
The staff is super friendly and on-call 24/7 if you need anything.
A hostel that meets my expectations.
I stayed here for 2 nights in May. The location of the hostel is ideal as King Cross station is only 3-4mins walk away.
The living room area and kitchen felt a bit on the small/cramped side and I thought it could have been a bit cleaner.
They do offer free wifi which is easy to log on to and also have a couple of TV's within the living room area.
My dorm was a 5 bed mixed. They're triple bunks, all with curtains, power sockets and a light. The bed was comfortable to say the least :-) however I'm sure some people will find the beds too small as there isn't much head room.
The showers/toilets were clean but I did feel there wasn't much space to get changed into clothes after showering.
Taking all things into consideration I would stay here again however I would be aiming to stay at other hostels before directing my attention to Journeys Hostel. - Kings Cross.
The staff is super duper accommodating. My bank card was not working and they allowed me to pay upon check out. They were really nice about it. The beds were cool, I like the bed curtains, plug ins to charge my laptop, and individual light. Its also in a perfect location, right near Kings Cross. Also, you do not need a key, you just use a code, unlike some where they make you pay a deposit for a key.
The internet wifi did not work at all, and I rely on this heavily. Breakfast is not all that. Bathrooms are ok but not spacious. Bring your own towel/wash rag or you have to pay.
I would look for another place but not opposed to staying here again at all.
