Im a tour guide,and in the easter time i take groups of students to London.As you may imagine ive stayed in many hotels and youth hostels around London. This one is a typical youth hostel:lots of screaming kids running around the corridors and slamming doors at 6am,very poor cleaning and room features (mine didnt even had a shower curtain)! There is surprisely coffee and tea facilities but i wouldnt for those ina thousand years!!!Food was of really bad quality and variety and being the last group to eat there wasnt enough food done for the whole group.
I asked to change room the 1st night as iOtd was placed among a group of really young and noisy french kids and staff thought it was ok to go to my room,get my stuff inside my bag and leave the open with reception staff for a whole day!!
Its bad enough that all my intimate stuff was there to be seen and touch but i also had hundreds of pounds belonging to the travel agency i was working for!!!Its it ironic that the next day while my suitcase was in the luggage "room" the same pounds that were there for everyone to see were stolen??
I only realised i was robbed when i got home so i didnt have the chance to press charges but the travel agency is taking care of that now...
Although i was naive and had no lock on my suitcase you always think your bags are safe at the place you staying. I will never think that way again!!
So if you decide to stay at this place is up to you but dont say i didnt warn you!!!
