Hi,

Thanks for your feedback and especially for appreciating the staff. :) I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately we couldn't fit as many lockers as there are beds in some of the rooms that is why we have additional lockers in the reception area. Hope to see you again at Clink!

Enjoy your travels!
