Secure Entrance
Feb 27th, 2014 by stuwad

We all want to feel safe..

To enter the hostel, you have to come through our front door. Watching that door at all times are our receptionists. Anyone not staying at the hostel won’t get past.

Your Identification
When you arrive, we will ask you to provide us with some photo I.D., preferably a passport. We will issue you with a card (‘the blue card’) which you must show us everytime you enter the hostel.

Visitors are not allowed into the hostel at all. We do allow you to take visitors into the dining room, but for security, they may not go near the bedrooms.

Luggage Storage

During your stay
While you are staying, you can safely leave your bags in your room. There are lockers in all our short term rooms. You will need to supply your own padlock or we sell them in reception for £2. We do not allow visitors into the hostel, and rarely have any problems with theft. The staff all live in the dormitories, and all leave their stuff lying about.

On Checkout
When you checkout, you may have to wait a few hours for a bus or train. You may leave your bags with us in our office.

Travelling on
If you have bags that you need to leave for a week or so, then you can do that too. We charge £3 a week to store your bags. Unfortunately, we have to charge for this, otherwise we would have a mountain of bags that never get picked up!

We’re safe, but always be careful with some things…

Every bed has a locker. You will need to bring your own padlock.
