No hot water for one day for shower. On other days, water is either too hot or too cold. Water pressure is so low, it's like showering in the rain. No table in private room. Comparing with another same level of accommodation standard, Hipotel in Paris is cheaper and better.

The staff is very friendly and kind.
It's well located (subway is 1 minute on foot).
The building has not a lift, so we had to bring our luggage for 3 floors of stairs.
Rooms and shared bathrooms is clean enough, but in my opinion it's for very short stays. (max 3 days)

We stayed in a dormitory for one night before leaving for Paris and we were glad to leave in the morning. The showers were filled with dirty stuff (maxi pads, hair, old plaster, etc.)
The hostel is well located, easy to find and on the same line as Kings Cross-St.Pancras station. The staff was friendly and helpful and we felt welcome.
In other words, pricy hostel, dirty bathrooms, just for a quick stay.

I went to this hostel to try and help my friend check in as he is not a native English speaker and suffers from a disability. The receptionist was rude and discriminatory and threatened to 'kick him out' if any one complained about him as he was in a shared room, soley on the basis that he was disabled. My friend understood perfectly what was going on and was hugely offended. I was mortified, so dissapointed that this was one of my friend's experiences of this country. There also did not appear to be any disabled access.
