Dear Mr131313, We are saddened to read your feedback about your experience of our hostel. Bed bugs are an unpleasent part of the hospitality industry and sadly we do have a few occurences, as almost most accommodation providers do. At Palmers Lodge every report of a possible bed bug infestation is taken seriously. Our maintenance and housekeeping teams immediately investigate the report and take action if the presence of bed bugs are confirmed. Any guest who might have been affected always have our full support even if they decide to leave our hostel early. Guests who book into shared accommodation must remember that sadly not every traveller shares the respect of personal property. We always recommend our guests to keep their valuables with them when not in the hostel or use the complimentary locker in the room or our safe/locker for hire services available at reception. Our front desk team are available 24hr to asssist guests with any matter regardless how small or big it is. There can be a number reasons why a refund is not offered for a cancelled reservation and we would be happy to investigate your case if you provided us with details of your reservation, just email your booking details to hillspring@palmerslodge.uk. If you wish to discuss the issues your reaised with us in more detail, please do not hesiate to get in touch with us. All the best,

Location in residential area, but close to tube station and high street shops. Spacious female only dorm with pod style beds (curtains, individual light) and lockers. Beds already made for guest. Clean facilities, comfy beds, decent breakfast and very good coffee. TV lounge, dinning area, bar provide options for rest and fun. Small kitchen would be the only downside. Friendly and helpful staff. Safe, clean, price savvy place to stay.

Stayed here during the Corona virus, Facilities at the hostel are fine, but information passed on to guests could be improved. Was continually told varying stories, then eventually told I could not stay on, even though the hostel was going to be open for another week. I understand the measures that were put in place by the government, but surely there are better ways to manage this issue then tell people they cant stay and shrug your shoulders when asked, so where can I go

Dear Bruno Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time while staying with us and appreciated our facilities. We are really sorry you felt like receiving insufficient information during your stay, but we had to follow the government's guidelines by closing our gates with immediate effect in order to protect our staff and guests. We are aware that we might give you some conflicting instructions on how to deal with your issue, but we had as well to deal with an unprecedented situation that forced us to take unpleasant but drastic decisions. We wish you to stay safe, and we hope to welcome you when our doors are open again. Kind Regards Dimitris Team Palmers

Nice, clean place, helpful staff, quiet location. Easy to reach underground, many buses in the area. Breakfast included in the price. Safe for solo travellers too. The hostel has a very nice location, not upfront of the road, thus quiet.

I have stayed here on numerous occasions, and have had great visits in the past, but this was the worst experience I have had here. Check in was terrible the 2 people on reception were talking to each other whilst checking people in. Rooms were extremely hot, too hot to sleep in. Even the radiators were too hot to touch. I asked to move, and was told to pay extra. I asked again to move on my 2nd night, as just walking into the room It was like walking into a sauna. I went back to reception, and thankfully a different person was on reception, and they moved me for free. There was a cleaner cleaning the shower rooms, and when I tried to ask her a question, she was so rude. Not all lost property is handed in, I recommend you retrace your steps. Overall I would stay somewhere else next time.
