Youth Hostels (YHA)

Postby gbnz » 21 Jan 2019, 9:38am

40 minutes trying to book online, the site lists information but I found it difficult to actually make a booking. Phoned a premium booking telephone number to find I was left on hold indefinately (Nb. Actually only 2-3 minutes by that stage, but by that stage it felt indefinite)

tel:+44(0)8000191700 I thought that was free
Or
0345 ******** charged at standard landline rate

If you’ve been on a premium line have you been scammed ?

£0.03 a minute. That's premium enough for me! Hostel itself turned out to be excellent, well presented, clean, excellent facilities, excellent card based "key" system for guests. Only issue being an overweight, old man in the room after 11.00pm, resulting in several hours of intense snoring
