"I did not know there was a swimming pool or a gym. We are not allowed to use them. I would not expect to use them. It is no problem."
He said the hotel was full, with many visitors having to share a room.
Khan fled Afghanistan two years ago when the Taliban seized control of the country, twenty years after they were outed by US troops.
His family’s business was burned down by the Taliban and they captured his uncle.
The 20-year-old fled to Pakistan out of fear for his own life.
He said: “I did not want to come here. I want to be with my family in Afghanistan. it is my home. It is where my best people are.
“But if I go there I lose my life. Now, my family do not know where I am but they can hope I am alive. If the Taliban take me my family knows I am dead. This is better.”
Since then, he travelled to Calais slowly by foot, walking the astonishing 4750 miles to France.

Upon arriving in France, Khan was left unsure of his next move, as he did not have £3,000 to pay to people smugglers to take him over the channel.
On September 12, Khan noticed a group of migrants heading to the beach and proceeded to join them.
He said: “I followed through the sand dunes where they got to a boat on the beach. It was still dark. They started pumping it up. I grabbed a pump and started to help, everyone thought I had paid and was part of the group so I just kept busy and helped as much as I could.
"We carried the boat down to the water and there were no police. We were stuck on the beach for 45 minutes because the engine would not start. All we saw were two people. One was a fisherman going home and the other was walking a dog.
"At last the engine started and we set off but I asked if the authorities knew about us? If they don't know, we could sink and drown, no-one would rescue us, but if they know they will save us.”
Khan describes how he called the French coastguard who proceeded to follow the boat until it made it into UK waters.
He was then processed in Dover before being sent to the luxurious hotel in Wigan.
