There are hotels nearby with more facilities and room provisions for just 5pounds more. So although it is advertised for offering the lowest prices it does not beat competition.
I would like to acknowledge Omar for the wonderful customer service he delivered when I checked in. He was very peaceful and courteous. He was very understanding about my wishes and very patient. He has great skills of empathy, understanding and problem solving. He was warm and made you feel welcome. Thank you Omar!
Absolutely brilliant location.
Well, where do I begin. Firstly there is NO drinking water on the property, unless you have change to buy a tiny plastic bottle from the vending machine. While the hostel claims to provide towels, they do not inform you that they will cost £5 to rent, and to store luggage also costs an additional £3 per bag. It was clear that any luxury had a price. Moving on to the bedroom, I stayed with 2 friends in a 3 person room that was not at all represented in the pictures. The room was tiny, could barely fit the bed and had water damage to the floor and scuff marks all over the walls. To top it off, part way through our stay, our door wouldn’t lock which was just the icing on the cake. In terms of public spaces, there was a delapidated outdoor area which could do with a lick of paint and only a hard, grey canteen for people to sit in and hang out. I have stayed in many hostels in the past and this one, was by far the worst.
Location was okay, near to where my tour started. There aren’t any lifts and my room was on the third floor so... no good with a suitcase. Staff were unhelpful unfortunately. Room was small, bed was uncomfortable and bedding was a bit yuck. Alarm went off at 2am...
My stats at Barkstons Rooms are always extremely pleasant, especially because of the extremely friendly and professional reception Manager, Mary. She always greets me with a smile, she remembers my name and make the check- in experience is wonderful. She has exceptional customer services skills and her calm and peaceful personality is fantastic. She goes the extra mile to make your stay pleasant and give great advice. I also would like to acknowledge Sopan ( sorry if I misspelled your name :). He is very calm, efficient and have great problem solving skills. Even at 5h45 am, he greets you with a very warm 'good morning' and he is very understanding.
A stay at Barkston Rooms Earl's Court places you in the heart of London, a 6-minute drive from Buckingham Palace and 10 minutes from St. Paul's Cathedral. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and microwave in a common area.
