Ridiculous fire alarm wakes you up every time u try to take a nap. And needless weekly fire alarm test.

The Glassworks FAQs

No, you do not. Contents insurance is automatically included with your rent.

Your contract is for a fixed length of time – so your room is yours throughout that period. That means that you don’t have the hassle of moving your belongings out during the Christmas or Easter vacations, and you can choose to stay in your property over these holidays if you want. It’s usually possible to book additional accommodation over the summer period if you want to stay then too. But we advise booking early to ensure rooms are available.

Every Host home has a team of trained staff on site to respond to meet your needs. Their job is to make your Host experience as enjoyable as possible.

Host takes safety seriously. Many of our properties have a member of staff or security guard on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to ensure help is always at hand should the need arise. Please check with your chosen location to see if this service is available.

Electronic door entry systems, intercoms and CCTV ensure that everyone who lives with us enjoys a high standard of security and the safest possible environment. So they can get on with enjoying themselves.

Every Host home has a dedicated caretaker team to respond to and solve your maintenance issues. We respond to every issue quickly and, if possible, will complete the repair during the first visit. Of course, this isn’t always possible and there are times when parts need to be ordered or external contractors arranged. When this happens, we’ll keep you updated on the progress.

Host designs homes that provide everything you need to enjoy living with us. Our flats come kitted out with all your cooking appliances: cooker, hob, kettle, toaster and microwave* and some sites also provide cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils.

No, you don’t. Any payment you make upon booking is part of your rental payment.
