The check-in times at Belvedere House, Holland House, and New Mansion House are as of 12:00. The check-in time at Friendship House is as of 12:30. All other properties handle a check-in time as of 14:00.
The check-out times at all properties are until 10:00.
All LHA properties work with a flexible check-in. Please inform us in advance if your estimated arrival will be after 21:00 so we can make sure there is somebody present to provide you with your keys. The property might ask to leave a valid Passport during a late check-in (after 21:00) in exchange for the keys. Your document will be given back to you once the check-in is fully completed the next morning.
In case you have an early departure and wish to check-out during the night or in the early morning, please speak with the manager at your reception the day before regarding the refund of your deposit.
We get great feedback about our service and accommodation however we appreciate that sometimes things can go wrong. LHA has an absolutely minimal notice period for guests and so we need to work hard to make things right when this happens. We have a policy of dealing with 100% of guest issues within the hostel in the first instance and the best way to achieve this is via direct contact with the reception desk in the hostel concerned:
Guest to communicate their complaint to the duty manager at reception at the respective hostel. The team member on duty will either deal with the complaint immediately or report it to their manager for further action with within a target timescale of three working days.
If the guest is not happy with the resolution of the reception team member they should ask to speak to the House Manager at the respective hostel. The guest’s details will be taken and a time will be given for when the House Manager will next be able to deal with the complaint.
If the guest is still not satisfied with the procedure in house, or the House Manager is not available within the stated timescales or if the complaint is about the House Manger, then they should escalate to the customer services team by emailing email@example.com
The customer service team will confirm receipt within the same working day and will check that the hostel has been given the chance to resolve the issue. If not, they will take on the issue and will aim to resolve and reply fully within five working days.
If you are unhappy with the outcome from customer services after the second escalation please ask for a final appeal from the customer services team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
A separate member of the customer services team will then review the response and will aim to reply fully within a further five working days. We appreciate that you can give us notice at any time, we will always respect your ability to do this and we will do all that we can to resolve your issue and to keep you choosing LHA London as your accommodation provider.
