Absolutely Horrific

There couldn't have been much worse about my stay. Nobody was in attendance at the reception at check in time - so we were locked out the building for a good 20 minutes. A kind resident let us in, however, still nobody was at reception for some time. The number to call made no help. The receptionist had no sense of urgency, did not apologise for the delay. When we finally got out room, it absolutely stunk of cigarette smoke and so I insisted on having our room changed. The room was dirty, unpleasant, no windows, or any ventilation. The bed was uncomfortable, and lacked basic amenities. The shared bathrooms were disgusting. To make matters worse, within 10 minutes of getting into the room, the entire building was evacuated due to a false fire alarm, with plenty of firetrucks in attendance. Unfortunately due to the conditions of the booking, we could not get a refund, but if it was refundable, we would have been out of there before we even got to reception. Wifi was insufficient too. Avoid at all costs.

The best bunk beds in a hostel I've ever had. I got a good room with windows out onto Courtenay Place, and the facilities were very good too.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The property was ok, but our room was directly off the lift lobby. It had loud plumbing running through it and a small gap near the window into an adjoining room where noisy people played videos from 4am. So not much sleep!
