Not the most Salubrious Accomodation in London

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 30, 2005

Another weekend in London with Petra - We chose the Acacia Hostel in South Kensington purely because we know the area and it was cheap. We were in a 5 bed dorm. The bathroom was on the landing, (the floor was wet). The room was clean and the bed was comfy. We had a locker (which required a 5 pounds deposit). Nothing much else to say really... There was a bare bulb hanging in the centre of the room and the floors were squeaky. There was a big notice in the reception forbidding (by order of the London Fire Brigade) anyone (staff or guests) from entering the 4th floor of the building! I tried not to lie awake wondering why!!

This princely sum of 12 pounds a night also included breakfast (would you believe??) This was toast, marmalade (or strawberry jam), Weetabix or cornflakes, tea or coffee. (There's no option of brown bread or semi skimmed milk either- ONLY white bread and fat milk.) Don't forget to wash up your things afterwards.

The room had a TV and fridge (residents can also use the cooker in the breakfast room to cook their own food).

Towels are also provided. There is no curfew but be mindful of others sleeping if you are coming in late. Some people live here and have been working all day.

Unique Quality: For 12 quid a night you get what you pay for.

Directions: S. Kensington SW7
