                                It was close to the station, shops and tesco. The bar was great value and I liked the music and films that were shown too. It was good to have a sink in the room and the showers were close.

                                The room was very hot at night even with the windows open.

                                Receoptionist is good, nice and efficient. Very near to Euston statio so it is very convenient. Bed is clean.

                                Very noisy, to be honest, as most customers are young teenagers. Roon is not very clean but bed is clean.

                                The location is good. Staff is friendly:

                                It is good for young travelers. But beware if you want a quiet night of sleep. Very noisy. All night. Big party place.

                                Location, extremely good location. 5 minutes walk to Russell Square station. A lot of cafe and shops near hostel. Cheap (for London).

                                Slovenly, disco night on the 1st floor, crowds of people sitting on the stairs, a little lift to the entire hostel. вOuble-decker beds are too low, you cannae sit at low level. Very noisy, no sound insulation in 4 bed private near toilet.

                                Safety deposit lockers. And one girl from staff was really nice.

                                It was filthy, not clean at all, tiny room, Toilet in the hall barely working, I couldn't even find a shower, Every time I came to reception I felt ignored. It took them time to notice me and even then to actually do something. I won't ever stay there again.

                                The attitude of the staff at reception desk is not so warm.

                                It was a decent value for what you get. Staying here is an experience in of itself where you have tons of people to interact with if you so choose. The location is close enough to the Russell Square metro station that will get you to most destinations. The neighborhood this place is located is calm.

                                This is a very busy hostel with people coming and going constantly. It feels very crowded at times, especially in the public areas. The bathrooms will get very busy in the mornings I was there. This problem was exacerbated by the fact that our floor's bathroom was closed. Also, the WI-FI sucks unless you're in the common area at the ground level.

                                The hostel was very well located.

                                We booked a 4 bed dorm and they placed us in a 6 bed dorm which was disappointing. The room offered only two power outlets for six beds. The showers were beyond disgusting and the toilets were constantly clogged and overflowing.

                                All toilets in bathroom on 5th floor are broken! I cannot believe it!

                                It was in the perfect location for what I wanted to do in the city, staff were very obliging and wifi was free for the first day I stayed. In a lovely neighbourhood, not far from local attractions and train station, friendly atmosphere.

                                The beds were very uncomfortable and the pillow practically non-existent, couldn't leave valuables in the luggage room and "complimentary breakfast" consisted of bread, cereal and milk. Very uncomfortable, couldn't get much sleep during my stay.

                                it's really close to evry more interesting attractions around the centre, but the room are really uncorfortable, for example the position of the light it's far from the bad, during the night only cold water, and windows are so small than the dimension of the room. But all the stuff are really nice, helpful and polite, and you can sleep quite. I met lot of people about 20-20 years old, so it's really good for young people that r travelling alone.

                                It is one of few not so expensive staying place if you want to near the London Euston station...

                                It's not very safe to sleep in the dorm. On the day I stay there, one girl under my bed lost her wallet and money while she was sleeping at night. And we found out that because the dorm door wouldn't close completely if we don't shut it down very hard. Therefore, sb. Just came in night and stole the girl's money....not a good experience and way to start you journey in a new country. Besides, the lock under the bed is not safe enough, because it is net-shape, so other people can easily see what you put in the box, unless you put it in another box....and you better bring your own lock to secure your belongings! Most importantly, after the girl reported what happened to her to the hostel staff, they look like don't offer much help, just gave her a sheet to fill in, and did not show much concern for the dorm safety...how to improve the overall safety ... we stay in the hostel doesn't mean we don't care where do we stay.....for the price we pay(19 pounds a night), it looks like it does not worth the money..... And the location is not as convenient as it said, it is located at about 15-20 minutes walk to the main station if you got a big suitcase....and you will have to climb some stairs to get into the hostel....

                                If you just want to have fun and meet people from different places, I highly recommend the hotel. But if you are working and need to rest, this is not the best place for you!
