It was horrible, there isn't towels, the fridge and the heater doesn't work
Literally nothing. We managed to sleep there because another guest found the keys by chance behind a painting ! Lucky us if he hadn’t found them we would have lost 130£ without possible refund
Adress difficult to find (little door on a dark alley ...) No answer from the host, impossible to contact : didn’t answer our calls or emails but he billed us before arriving No info at all about the keys location or adress, No keys - one of the other guests found them behind the painting after looking for them for 1h30 ... Other guests (a family with 2 children) were at the same situation when we arrived there Lack of cleanliness : rooms, bathroom ... No hot water the 2nd day !!!!!!!! (And no heating of course) Roof is as thin as it can get, good luck if you sleep on the ground floor and there is sb on the 1st floor No towels No shampoo or shower gel Tap was leaking annoyingly NO CONTACT AT ALL WITH THE OWNER DURING OUR STAY Place to avoid definitely ! An absolute SCAM.
Check in was non existent. Another guest let three other groups in. No room allocation. No reply to emails or calls. No accessible Wi-Fi. No towels or toilet paper. After first night access door to guesthouse broken and unsecured. 75% of light bulbs not working. Upper showers leaks through ceiling of lower bathroom. Stained sheets. Basically no maintenance and no contact with operator. We were just lucky that another guest let us in and we were able to find a key behind a picture for our home. Dozens written and voice attempts at communication with operator unanswered. It appears the operator is operating several guesthouses under one listing. If you find the property listed (there is no signage and the unlit door is along a narrow alleyway), and achieve the miracle of contacting the operator (there is no-one actually on site, and no Wi-Fi available), then it is still likely you will be told your bed is 40 minutes walk away at somewhere entirely different. This place is simply a council flat that someone had shoved as many beds as possible into, then sat back and left the punters to it.
Other than that, facilities were acceptable although there were no toilet rolls of towels to use with the shower and the toilets were often very crowded. Location was decent also and around a 15 minute walk from kings cross
Check in was difficult. I arrived along with 2 other parties and had to be assisted by a confused guest as the owner was in reachable. Service from the owner was unacceptable. 2 other parties arrived during my stay and had the same problem. One of these parties banged on my bedroom window at 1130pm thinking I was the owner and I had to try my best to assist them, which should not have been my responsibility.
