          Hello, have any of you experienced that the hostel is... well how should I say this.. haunted? I slept in the fourth floor, and late at night, I suddenly started hearing indistinct humming from a woman. I didn't hear any footsteps first, and of someone was really there, I would have heard it. And it couldn't have been from another room, cause the room was at the end of the hall, and the sound came from that side (the humming came from the stairs/hallway). Kind of creepy, so I was wondering if anybody else has experienced the same?

          Hallo Helen. Just take the 'Piccadilly' underground line (dark blue on tube maps) from your terminal in Heathrow up to King's Cross/St. Pancras. It takes about 50 minutes.
