Reviews of Goldsmiths House
I found the staff friendly and helpful, but while the hostel was clean, think it could do with some 'jazzing' up - it has too much of an old-fashioned nurses'accommodation feel about it. Also, my sheets weren't changed at all despite being there for over a fortnight and really think cleaning staff should be employed on weekends. The sense I got is that, as usual, profits are more important than the guests' comfort/
They didn't accept my reservation for yesterday, even though I payed. I was very disappointed!
clean and tidy, there is lift, so you don't need to carry your bags, very good quality for this price. I recomend it as a very good place.
Nice to meet other students, kitchen< TV and computer
Quiet place, stayed there for 5 nights, but GH took money for 6 nights, promised to transfer it back... but I don't see that it's happened. Plus - you can use kithen to cook your own food, tea. But mug, spoon and plate for my room were so stinky, so I had no wish to use it. It's better to take metal mug with you...
Very nice hostel,loved it and will return there for sure.
Overall, considering the costs, a good place to say!
Great and safe place to stay in London. Very friendly and helpful staff.
I was extremely disappointed that my request that there be no blue bedding (due to a serious allergy) was totally ignored - everything was blue! The situation was saved by a very friendly and helpful porter, who also carried my bag to the 4th floor as the lift was broken. Another problem - when checking out, another porter told me he didn't have my name on the list even though I told him I could see it! I had to take it from him and show him - not great...
