If you want to be a part of a social & informal atmosphere with positive people along with the fastest free Wi-Fi in London, a cheap bar and all in an excellent convenient location, then we look forward to seeing you soon.

We are only 2 stops from King’s Cross St Pancras station!

We have the largest social area of any hostel in London, its big enough to find your own private area when you want to chill and lots of people in it when you don’t. It ticks all the boxes. With a stage for live music, large cinema screen, free pool tables, free table tennis and a PlayStation 4 you will never be bored. Did we mention the free superfast Wi-Fi throughout the hostel?

And we just keep getting better….

Unique to the hostel, Stoke Newington’s Church Street with independent restaurants, pubs, shops and cafes serving the best coffee in London are only a 10 minute walk from the hostel. When you get bored of Shoreditch, check out Stokey.

We are only minutes away from the night-life of Camden, Holloway, Dalston and Hoxton. Awesome!

Arsenal Football Club and the Emirates Stadium is only 5 minutes’ walk away. Our bar and the hostel are a great place to be on match days. Carnage!

Going to a gig or event at the Alexandra Palace? We are only 20 minutes by bus away from the Ally Pally!

Direct links to Heathrow Airport

We are big on security and provide lockers free of charge and CCTV throughout the hostel.
