Dear sir thank you for your comment. We discovered the aerial socket had become detached and was reaffixed and made secure by the maintenance department. Otherwise thank you for staying with us.


The hostel is not very central but they're very good transportations. The cleaning was excellent and we did not feel like sharing toilet and showers. The kitchen was also very clean and charming.

Dear madam thank you for your kind words. Also whilst not located in Central London, Davies Court is right on the doorstep of Canary Wharf the Financial District and head office area of major banks and financial institutions together with numerous dining and entertainment choices and it's many attractions, We are also ideal for The O2 world famous venue and the 2012 Olympic Park shopping complex of Stratford Westfield, only a quick journey on the DLR.


The location was awful, plain awful, in one of the worst parts of the city. There was no wifi (they make you actually buy an ethernet cable from them), a completely under equipped kitchen and no reading lights or plugs near the bed. Atmosphere? There was no atmosphere whatsoever. and for the key they want a god damn £30 deposit! Or else they take your bloody passport. It looks like a good price but the fact is that you have to take two trains to get absolutely anywhere interesting. Staff were ok

Canary Wharf is a desirable area of London, located in Zone 2 of the very extensive transport network with buses directly going to the Regent Street and Piccadilly areas whilst directly passing many major Central London photogenic and important landmarks. There never was WiFi you can buy Ethernet cables from all good PC shops, we sell them as a service for those not bringing one. Residents like to personalise their rooms and bring their own crockerty , cutlery etc. Thank you for saying with us.
