Nice hostel close to Kings Cross Station and buses

Pros: Proximity to trains and buses.
Location: Great area with plenty of places to eat within short walking distance.
Great place to stay! Little noisy at night over the weekends, but that's to be expected (and they provided ear plugs). Breakfast each morning was a good money saver for those on a tight budget. Clean rooms and bathrooms.

Decent for price

Decently clean rooms, bathrooms were not too dirty and location quite central - but takes a good 10-15min walk to kings cross station.
