Abercorn House Hostel London was a horrible experience. No sink in room. Kitchen sink nozzles were overgrown with thick hairy green mold. No chairs, tables, or desks in rooms. The Iraqi front desk staff were profoundly rude from behind their bulletproof glass. Room wasn't ready. Made us wait in hall with luggage for 45 minutes. Windows open to an active construction site. Noise from saws, drills, and garbage dumping runs from 8am-5pm, Saturday included. The courtyard is totally cluttered and trashy with old mattresses, furniture, and assorted rubbish. Internet is not free. Wifi costs £1 for every hour of use. Wifi coverage is spotty and slow. Some sites blocked. They charge £5 for tokens to use the washer/dryer. If you open the dryer door to check on your clothes, it resets your time and they force you to pay again. Even though they could easily give you another token to finish your load, they have zero tolerance for opening the dryer door, despite the fact that there are no postings. They see every occurrence as an up-selling opportunity and charge you more. The lukewarm showers are the type where you push a button for ten seconds of running water. The vibe at the Abercorn hostel London is very negative. Most travelers lay low by staying in their rooms or leaving. The only people I ever really saw were middle-eastern business men. The location seems good for the price, but you will easily make up the difference in tube tariffs and additional charges from the hostel. Exterior doors and gates are left open all day and night so any person from the street can walk directly to your room or into the unblocked showers without passing the front desk. Very unsafe.
