We had originally planned not to stay in Kings Cross as we had heard mixed reviews about the area but our other friends had stayed in Original Backpackers awhile back and we had heard good reviews about the atmosphere and the rooms.
We had arrived later than had planned, as our plane had been delayed, so we arrived quite late at night on a Thursday and we had to deal with a young English guy.
The place looked nice and I was warmed to it as it seemed like a good place, and I had been worried that we wouldn't be able to check in as we hadn't made a booking and it was so late. This was the least of our worries!!!!
My partner and I had to offer I.D for checking in but I couldn't find mine, so I said to my partner that it was in her bag. My exact words were, 'It's in your bag, honey.'
The guy looked up and sneered to himself and I heard him mutter, hmm, dykes!
I was absolutely disgusted and have never, NEVER experienced such abuse in my life.
I was too shocked and takend aback to say anything so I grabbed our bags and walked out.
I thought I would have liked it there, but will be telling all of my friends and anyone I meet not to stay here. EVER!
