This was a very modernized hostel with an excellent breakfast. Nice, private bathrooms, key card entry. and a neat tv lounge. The bed was very comfy and clean. Although the security in the rooms left something to be desired (the lockers were not large enough to accomodate an average backpacker's pack). The service was excellent and everyone very friendly. I wouldn't recommend it if you're a social backpacker looking to meet others, however. People there pretty much keep to themselves. I loved how close it was to the British Library! They had some really neat stuff in their exhibit (Shakespeare's First Folio, the Magna Carta, loads of illuminated manuscripts, and a section on The Beatles with cocktail napkins on which were first composed the lyrics to songs that changed popular culture and music forever. Really cool, and definitely worth checking out. Admission is by donation (pay-what-you-can).

Have stayed at a few other London hostels (Earl's Court, Holland House, etc.) and St. Pancras is by far the best - its super clean, brand new, the location is great and the facilities are practical and innovative. Like every other hostel, who you share a room with ends up affecting your quality and length of sleep, and privacy is next to non-existent; but in comparison to large, dusty rooms and overcrowded lounges of other hostels, this YHA is simply the best to be had, especially for people working at the British Library, or needing easy access to King's Cross rail.

I stayed here because I'm a postgrad student who was doing a research day at the British Library across the street, so the location was perfect--to be any closer I would have had to camp out in the piazza! Having said that, if the BL is not your goal, the location is not great--good for getting places as it's very near King's Cross, but Euston Road itself doesn't have great attractions or shopping or anything and the area's a bit dodgy at night (especially if alone).

The one improvement I would like to see made to the hostel is that there's no kitchen, so I wouldn't want to stay more than a few nights--it gets expensive eating in cafes! However, for a day or three, the hostel food is great--the cafe is quite inexpensive for London but the food is actually quite good! I tried the vegetarian enchiladas and a pizza as well as the breakfast and they were great. I loved sitting in the comfy chairs by the window, drinking a glass of wine and watching the snow fall outside! Lovely. In the morning there's a choice of breakfast things, either a basket of cereal/yoghurt/pastry, or hot food, or both, so you're sure to find something you like! Comes with juice and tea or coffee and you'll be stuffed for under a fiver so no complaints!

The rooms are very clean, with plenty of room to put your things. There is an en suite bathroom with a shower, but also another down the corridor a bit in case someone's using it when you need it. The beds are among the most comfortable hostel beds I've ever slept in--I applaud YHA's decision to start using ordinary sheets and duvets and the mattresses weren't limp at all. The bathroom was clean, well-stocked with loo roll and paper towels, though a soap dispenser would be useful--the corridors ones have them but not the en suites.

There is a lounge on the first floor as well as the cafe downstairs. I didn't investigate the laundry as I wasn't there long enough. They have computers or you can buy wifi--quite reasonably priced at £5/day or £9/week. If you forget your towel, like I did, they can be bought at reception for £4. The staff are friendly and responsive, and the atmosphere is very relaxed--it doesn't seem like a real party hostel, there were even a pair of little old ladies staying when I was, which I think is great!

I usually stay at the YHA Earl's Court when in London which is lovely in a different way; I picked this one because of the location this time. Really pleased, and will definitely stay there again!

We stayed in this hostel over the new years period, from the 29th December - 2nd January. We booked the room well in advance as we knew the prices would get higher and higer and thought we got a pretty good bargain - 62 pounds per night.
We arrived via the eurostar at Kings Cross and it literally took about 3 minutes to walk there. We departed via St Pancras which was even less time to get there, we could see it from our room.
We werent able to check in any earlier, so had to store our luggage in the lockers, which cost 3 pounds and ate our money without locking the first time.
Although the hotel is in central London, it is just a bit too far to walk to anywhere of importance, especially at night - so you end up having to pay ridiculous bus or tube fares to get around.
The room itself was small and pokey, with a very basic bathroom. The bed was tiny and had paper thin pillows. If you do decide to stay here, keep your valuables on you or locked up as the cleaning staff don't look too trustworthy. On numerous occasions - at approximately 10-10.30am cleaning staff walked in without knocking, while we were in the room and didnt greet us or aplogise for intruding.
Im not sure what room the person who mentioned double glazing stayed in, but Euston Road was extremely noisy and a certain man hole cover made a really scary noise when buses went past (from really early morning to really late at night), not to mention the ambulances, fire engines & police cars that go past at least 4 times an hour.
If you are looking for a place to eat, go next door to the Irish pub, they have great breakfast deals and fairly cheap lunch and dinner specials too!
Overall, an average hostel but what else can you get for this price in this extremely expensive city over the new years period?

In the city and freaking cold. I dont know why they didnt have hot water but close to station and kings cross. Place is clean and cant complain for hostel. Staff some helpful some couldnt care but thats england for you.
Luggage pay for it to be stored, wifi not free. Mirror is another issue but i dont use much of it.
Pub nearby so nice place to chill. Few fights i saw but thats nothing to do with hostel.
Overall be safe and stay here.
