In real terms it was a non starter to have the census completed in any way complete. The responsibility for completion of details of who resided there on the night of the census was the 'hotels'. Needless to say the accuracy given the nature of the business, cash etc, was questionable but impossible to prove.
Jeez you must have needed armed bodyguards. That census return will baffle the researchers on 'Who Do You Think You Are' episode 4907, first broadcast in 2522, and a year later on 'Yesterday' .

I am pretty sure it was what might be described as a gentlemans' hostel. Wasn't this the site of the world famous 'Ponderosa' too ?

Short straw springs to mind. It was a little dodgy entering unlit HMO's on Bentick Road.
