Many long-term customers stumbling around drunk and smoking all the time. There are signs in the room asking tenants to keep the rooms tidy but there was minimal effort, like just pushing piles of things under the beds. All my roommates were older men who were actually staying a long time in London and were working there. They spoke very little English and communicating with them was very hard. I hardly ever saw anyone but my roommates and the staff in the hostel. The bathroom floor was sticky for my entire stay of two nights. It seems as though they expect tenants to clean the bathrooms as there are signs asking for guests to clean the shower after they take a shower?? Needless to say I did not take a shower there.
With a stay at Acacia Hostel in London (London City Centre), you'll be steps from Natural History Museum and 6 minutes by foot from Victoria and Albert Museum. Featured amenities include luggage storage and microwave in a common area. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available for a surcharge.
