Wir sind ein 70ig jähriges Ehepaar. Uns hat der dreitägige Aufenthalt in der YHA London Lee Valley sehr gut gefallen! Schön ist die wunderbare Naturnähe und die gute Bahnverbindung ins Zentrum Londons. So dass wir sowohl ein herrliche Radtour durch den Nationalpark wie auch einen Besuch des Zentrums Londons unternehmen konnten.

Great having USB power outlets on each bed. BAD having doors with NO handles and having a single key between two people to come and go without one or both of us getting locked out of our room all the time. It's a really BAD concept, and propping open our door only lessens the practical security and convenience. Limited WiFi coverage and having to compete for outlet space in the lounge (for WiFi) caused us to avoid it all together. The rooms were clean and bright but the kitchenette was limited.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our hostel. If you had asked reception for another key, we would have been more than happy to give you one. We at at least 12 outlets in the reception/accommodation area so not sure why you were having to compete for one. Thank you again for leaving a review on our hostel. Kind regards, Leigh Duty Manager

J'ai aimé le cadre verdoyant, la proximité de la gare.les petits bémols : nos toilettes privés sentaient un peu dans la chambre. Les accessoires de ménage (balais, ramasse poussière, serpillère) sont sous clefs. Quand on est avec des enfants, ce n'est pas facile de tout laisser en plan pour demander les accessoires nécessaires pour nettoyer les dégâts.

Hi Gaelle, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our hostel, great to hear that you enjoyed the surroundings. We keep all our cleaning equipment locked away as it is part of the Health and Safe regulations, however, the housekeeping team come to the lodges everyday and would be more than happy to help you. We hope to see you again. Kind regards, Leigh Duty Manager
