Hostel where sex-crazed guests ‘masturbated out of a window’ denied licence

A hostel where backpackers allegedly masturbated out of a window has been refused an alcohol licence.



Neighbours of the Journey’s Hostel near King’s Cross said guests regularly kept them awake at night and have been seen urinating in gardens and having sex on a roof.

It requested permission to sell drink as late as midnight but Islington Council threw out the application this week after a flurry of complaints.

One person living near to the Caledonian Road hostel, who asked not to be named, described the ‘stressful reality’ of the ‘sleep deprivation and nuisance’ caused by guests’ sex-crazed antics.

They said: “Guests repeatedly climb out of the bedroom windows onto the low-level roof to smoke, drink alcohol, play music and dance with the utmost disregard for people trying to sleep.

“They are often seen urinating into our gardens too and even brazenly have sex.”
