well, i dont know if its just me, but this place is pretty average, i went to have a shower this morning, and the shower was literaly filled with hair! i had to take about 3 handfulls of the stuff out of the plug hole to get it to drain the brown water resting at the bottom.
the asian reception lady is absolutly terrible, acts as if your doing her a great dis-service by checking in!
almost no staff speak decent english...i had to tell them about 5 or 6 times that i had a reservation...good breakfast though, but the floor in the lounge room was all sticky.
it is probally just my bad luck, but everyone i have met is not willing to interact with anyone other than their own little groups, i have only been here 3 days and im going home...mainly because of my own reasons, but the hostel definatly didnt help.
plus, what is up with pink and green rooms?

Heh heh heh... I should have guessed from your other post that you were staying in that shithole. I used to work there. The asian chick is really great actually, but she gets stressed out at the drop of a hat. Every single one of the problems there can be traced directly to management. But thats another ball of wax. And london hostels pretty much suck generally. I dont know what you're talking about, the breakfast is barely fit for human consumption.

Tell the asian girl (Ria) that steph says hi. And that I miss her bunches. In fact, tell anyone working at the desk. God I miss them.

And at least your room isnt sick pink and ghastly lavendar... Still gives me the willies. God I'd give anything to switch you places...

It was a shithole, but it was your shithole.
