A man dressed as a woman was allowed to stay in a female-only dorm by a hostel which forced a ‘terrified’ domestic abuse survivor to find alternative accommodation late at night.
The man, who booked a room in a female-only dorm at the Astor Victoria Hostel in Pimlico under the name Alisson, was seen by female occupants sprawled out half-naked on his bed displaying his male genitalia.
Sue Boardman, who suffered 23 years of horrendous domestic abuse, spoke of her horror after discovering the female-only dorm she checked into was occupied by a man.
The 55-year-old from Shropshire had travelled to London for two nights on 28 May for the Let Women Speak event which covered the importance of safe spaces for females.
She told The Sunday Telegraph: ‘I was just about to go to bed when one of the other women informed me that they had discovered a man dressed as a woman sprawled out on the bed, with his male genitalia on display.
