Book ahead for best room selection
Seperatemale and female washrooms which was good. No option seen for womens only dorm. Dorm was fine - lockers available for each bed. Larger luggage storage was secure from public, but no tags to separate your own bag from the rest - anyone could have stolen it when getting their own bag. Rude guests came in at 2am - security didn’t seem to do much about them. When leaving the park - gates were locked closed, and we had to jump the gate to get out (around 7am)

Poor customer service and the water stopped wirkin
I would like to complain about my stay at safestay holland park park last night. I arrived at the hostel at approx. 2200 to find there had been some confusion of beds. I stayed the previous night too, and had been allocated bed 5 in room 14 (attached ). Not the end of the world, and easily resolvable. However, the attitude of the front of house person made this whole exchange more difficult than it needed have been, and he was quite rude to several customers, myself included. Working with people is hard work- I know this from my job, too- but the problem the residents were facing was not of our making and it would have been nicer to have been dealt with a little more politely. The night got worse when it became apparent that some showers in other rooms had stopped working. What followed was a steady stream of people who had been given keycards to the room I was in coming in to have a shower. This went on into the small hours. At no point did the front of house person tell us, the residents of room, directly that this was going to happen. I only found this out from the showerers themselves. I work in travel and hospitality- the reason I stayed was because my company’s office is close by, Audley Travel- and so deal with these situations fairly regularly. It wasn’t great- particularly when one factors in the night’s stay cost me £35. I really thought I had found a good location for a bit of flexi working but have to say I’m am left pretty disappointed.
