How can i make a complaint?

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:

First instance - 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.

First escalation - 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 guests details will be taken and a time will be given for when the House Manager will next be able to deal with the complaint.

Second escalation - 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 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.
