To not fancy paying £100 to stay here, for 2 nights, over Christmas with my in-laws, our 3yo and me at 35 weeks pregnant?

You are joking aren't you?!

Whose bloody stupid idea was this?

YANBU at all. You deserve to be pampered at that stage of your pregnancy not deprived.

it looks cold to me.

TBH, I think Christmas should be at home, when you have a little child.
And you need to be able to totally relax, at 35 wks

It looks like a Nissen hut, there are no interior shots and no list of what there is in terms of knives forks, spoons etc., the word evades me..oh yes equipment.

<<shudder>> @ Youth Hostels. I know they're 'posh' these days but I've still hated every blardy one I've stayed in.

It's a recommissioned scout hut, surely?

BreeVanDerCampLGJ Tue 02-Oct-07 17:35:15

Oh holy heart shock it is a youth hostel, waddle as quickly as your bump will allow in the opposite direction.

YANBU. I think you are entitled to put your foot down and do whatever suits you and your own little family.

Cammelia Tue 02-Oct-07 17:37:30

Do NOT do it, it will be awful

Hulababy Tue 02-Oct-07 17:37:42

Not for me! And especially not at 35 weeks pregnant. And definitely not at Christmas time either.

i like Christmas Day at home with just me, Dha nd DD. Family time!

hell no, not a yuff hostel!

Friends of ours go often and says it fabs nowdays but I have done ruffing it when younger and more enthusiastic.. I want pampering now (well actually I want to be left alone but you are not going to get that with inlaws anyway)....

The only thing which would entice me away from my own hearth at Christmas would be utter 5* plus luxury, and I'm not PG

(Won't even go to my sister's for christmazs, cos they are more interested in their animals, and you have to fend for yourself when there).

yanbu at all, no way jose!

MrsBadger Tue 02-Oct-07 17:42:43

why? is it to be near some local family or something?
if so this is just the other side of the motorway and looks a hell of a lot nicer...

pointydog Tue 02-Oct-07 17:49:24


A 2 star youth hostel! Wasn't expecting that.
No, beaners, you ar enot being unreasonable

beansprout Tue 02-Oct-07 17:50:01

That does look a lot better Mrs B, but in-laws are most definitely after the cheap option!

beansprout Tue 02-Oct-07 17:50:44

Fortunately, we are in NW London, so I think I am going to suggest the day trip option... grin

Hulababy Tue 02-Oct-07 17:50:54

beansprout - let them stay on the hostel, and ou guys go to the better place grin

pointydog Tue 02-Oct-07 17:51:14

HotLove Tue 02-Oct-07 18:10:56
