That's great Nodoom, but what was the reason for the closure in the first place? You really should be looking for some type of permanent lodging that doesn't closed down.
The reason for closing during the holiday was down to "funding cutbacks".
Long term accommodation is a difficult thing to find. It is very expensive and the welfare system only allows for a maximum of £200 per week for rent. Rents start at £250 a week here in the capital.
So that only leaves the hostel choice. But there is the next problem. Due to new rules a person can only stay in one hostel for a maximum of 6 months than has to move to a different hostel.
With 800 pounds a month you should be able to rent a room in a home, are you not?
