It is 4am, I am in a private room in the full mon hostel and I can't sleep. for dirty pounds a night, I could be staying in a basic hotel (eg. The clifton, the,Washington). They fail to address basic issues which would take the experience from a nightmare to poor but tolerable. For example, they have actually gone to some trouble to find the most uncomfortable bed they possibly can. I think they must hate their guests, or at least enjoy laughing at,their pain. The mattress springs protrude into my flesh and the bed frame makes a loud wiry noise every time I move. What really bothers me, however, is the smell of sweaty heads that had accumulated in the lumpy pillows that have clearly never been washed. The walls have dark splatters ask over them, and there is a creaky door just outside the room that is being incessantly opened and closed (I will go and ask the reception to oil it shortly).
also, for forty pounds a night I don't like having to share a bathroom sprinkled liberally with urine (outside of the places you'd expect).
Less within the control of the owners, but still a massive nuisance is the roaring and shouting guests in the room next door.
The staff told me parking would not be a problem and that I should park next door in ncp. This would cost me forty pounds, almost as much as a parking ticket if I were to just leave my car somewhere I shouldn't. Again, out of their control but I feel misled by their info.
The reason I returned to this hostel is that last time, I had quite a basic but nice room (room 'a') with an en suite shower for exactly the same price. I am told this room had been given to 'a non paying guest who is a local artist, because he keeps setting off smoke alarms in the other rooms'. I see.
