Es gab jede Nacht Feueralarm durch jugendliche Gäste. Die Zimmer sind alt, ebenso die Duschen, die Betten unbequem. Die Fenster lassen sich spaltbreit öffnen, schließen auch nicht dicht. Ein defekter Toilettensitz wurde sofort ausgetauscht. Das Frühstück war gut und reichlich. Das Personal tut wirklich alles, um die vorhandene Mängel auszugleichen. DIe JuHe liegt relativ ruhig, trotz Straßennähe. Bus und Bahnen bringen einen schnell in die City.

Hi Christine Thanks for posting your feedback on your stay. Yes our new alarm has been put to the test lately .The teams on duty were quick to respond and to settle everyone down. Its good to know that our customers take it seriously and follow instructions by our duty teams. We are working closely with all customers to highlight how activations can be avoided. Hope the breakfast got you back on track Thank you for the kind remarks about the staff. Hope we see you again. Many thanks Beverley Robinson Manager

Had a twin room - it was quiet and had a nice view over London. Bathroom could do with a freshen up. No complaints for the price. Nice staff. I hate carpets in British hostels - I'd love to see the British obsession with carpets come to an end. Nice walk to Canada Water station.

Hi Edmund Thanks for reviewing your stay with us. Did you see Canary Wharf or towards the Shard, Tower bridge and the London Eye. your comments on "Nice staff and prices are much appreciated. The Walk to Canada Water along the canals is very peaceful with all the wild life. I get what you mean about the carpets, they do keep rooms cosy . In any case will pass on your comments to our planners . Many Thanks Beverley Robinson Manager
