Well this was my first time staying in a London hostel, because we booked last minute 5 of us stayed in a room with 15 random people. The beds were narrow and there was a severe lack of plug sockets. We were woken up several times by drunk people coming into our room. I got sexually assaulted in this dorm and the staff did nothing about it when i reported it the morning after because it was dark and i could not describe the attackers all they said was sorry this happened. They did not ask around the other occupants in the room if they saw anything etc.
The hostel itself had a nice clean modern feel but the room was terrible it has put me off staying in a hostel again. If anyone ever stays here try to get a room with all the people you know. The security in the other 20 dorm (where some of our party) got robbed .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- REST UP hostel in London has been established within Driscoll House, a unique pre-WWI baroque style listed building, unlike any other in the surrounding suburb of Elephant & Castle. We have a century old history of being a hostel, a claim that we are very proud of, originally just for women and children however now open to all. With an original exterior, the interior has been brought up to date with modern common areas perfect for relaxing and zoning out of reality and into the cyber world with our FREE WIFI. Our TV room and terrace are both great places to enjoy some snacks and laze around in the brightly coloured chairs/ bean bags and soak up the sunlight (on the rare occasions when London’s weather decides to shine). English not your mother tongue? That’s not a problem! We have multi-lingual staff that are here to help you. A hostel unlike any other hostel; with the hustle and bustle of central London on our doorstep complimented by the great array of guests within (young and old from all around the world) as well as friendly staff and delicious meals available throughout the day it’s the perfect place to make new friends, relax and REST UP at Driscoll House Hostel. ... more less
