I have stayed at HI Basildon 3 times recently, after being a regular visitor a few years back. The rooms are very basic and look out dated, with the beds spongey and uncomfortable. The full english breakfast is clearly cheap brand and you would expect better for your money. Two of my stays have been on fridays and upon returning to the hotel after a meal out, the atmosphere is one of chaos. Drunks banging on the doors, people lingering around reception drunk and there dosnt seem to be enough staff on as well as any personality with the people that are there. I used to visit circa 2008-2011 and i remember the night manager ''Jason'' was fantastic. Outstanding personality, had complete control of the lounge area - including getting rid of the drunks when the security were not, and generaly made mine and my girlfriends stay much more rewarding. Guy was absolute gold. You need more people like Jason, and more comfortable beds, as well as better brands of food.
