The hall is usually downstairs. Upstairs is called the landing. Are you not intending to replace downstairs?

Add the measurements in feet and inches as well.

Are you buying your carpet from a local company and getting a carpet fitter in to fit the carpet, or doing it yourself?

If buying locally, the company can send a fitter out first, to measure the area to be covered.

get the fitter to do the removal & measuring then as you'll probably need underlay too and you'll be restricted to what carpet by its width. Probably best to get a carpet and split it 3-4 times to get your 78-86cm widths
You'd need to provide information on how the stairs and hall are laid out for a sensible calculation to be made. Unless you want the individual bits split up as in your diagram (e.g. you may want a strip of wood on each stair showing).

13' x 15' is what.. 3.96m x 4.57m? That not going to allow you to cut a stretch long enough for the upstairs hall.

Don't worry about feet and inches, work in what you're comfortable with. The shop can always convert your measurements for their use.

oh I sent pics and re message the guy, I gave him 446 for landing or hall, lol when it is 466, he said it's 6 inch under but he will sort it for no extra cost, looking at carpet now it has not cut for hall way, and bit cut for half step, so all looks improvement, the stairs doesn't have underlay, but this capert has some backing so not too bad, I sent them pics also , so fingers crossed all goes good

yes he said remove old carpet will probably be tenner extra which seems fine to me,tho only thing there won't do is take old capreet
I had cut carpets before and if done right, ain't too bad
Unless you intend fitting it yourself let the carpet shop come and measure, because if you get it wrong that could be an expensive mistake, if they get it wrong that's their problem.
