    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    London Home is such a dirty unhygenic hostel the bathroom was full of mould shower cubilces were full of dirt. The shower was awful so old fashioned had to push button for water to disperse after a short while it would stop so annoying! I didnt bother having a shower on the following day with it being so filthy. There was no soap in dispenser in the toilet and hand dryer was on the blink. I had booked a double room yet was given a twin. The mattres was hard and made of what looked like leather. Very cold especially at night the heating was never on. Not a place where you can relax. Its the worst hostel I have ever stayed in absolutely apauling! They should be ashamed I have stayed in much better hostels in Italy and Spain where the room and bathroom are cleaned every day. I would not recomend London Home to anyone it was definately not worth £44.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Bed bugs. Stained sheets.Filthy prison like shower with standing water and clumps of hair on the floor. The bathroom was out of order. Drug deal going down on the front steps when I arrived. The place is horrifying and should not be listed here as an optional property to book. I got sick the first night from the bites from all the bed bugs and had to last minute find a new hotel to move to. The staff was kind.
