Pretty basic, rooms were quite clean, bathrooms weren't. A lot of noise from the street, single glass windows didn't block the sound. Wifi didn't work that well... Wouldn't recommend it. But hey, what did you expect when paying 1/3 of the normal room price in London. Value for money it is...

This was my first ever stay in a hostel... So my first impressions weren't that great... The drunken man stumbling around outside definitely didn't help the situation either, but this can't be helped. The hostel is very central to new cross, and new cross isn't that far away from London centre. So the position of the hostel is perfect. I... More

I were very disappointed with this hostel since I had looked on pictures at a booking site before, but those pictures must have been taken many years ago. The staff was uneven, some were very friendly and some not even helpful. The toilets and showers were often busy and sometimes run out of warm water. The breakfast was ok -... More

ok its cheap- fair enough but a hostel or hotel should be clean, safe and allow you to sleep. Not the new cross inn. we arrived to loud music next door which i commented on on the very nice man behind the desk said it was very unusual and should stop soon. so we went out to London and i... More

Ok, so this is an old building and you should not expect much from an old building. Rooms are tidy, kitchens are tidy, bathrooms are tidy but by no means are they spotless clean...some areas have more spots than others. While I noticed that bedding was slowly being replaced a complete overhaul would have been a good idea. Some beds... More

For what it is (a hostel) it was not too bad. It has the basics, like linen, towels, a common room and kitchen. Staff is friendly and helpful and reception is open 24hrs, which is convenient for late arrivals. Great transport links to all over London, with New Cross station on one side and New Cross Gate on the other,... More

Booked this "BNB" with AirBNB for 6 nights. WHAT A MISTAKE. Worst kept hostel I've ever seen, full of weird long term stayers that just don't talk?! I was rattled when I found out the breakfast options. Cornflakes, toast: no jam, and you have to get there super early in order to think about having milk with your cereal. Reception... More

English Well, when I first came in to the hostel I wasn't sure about the location, it seems way too far on the map suddenly I realice that theres a train directly to Charring Cross and to London Bridge and is only 5 to 10 minutes, so you arrive basically in 10 minutes down town. Theres two Sainsburys near the... More

Arrived early evening, the downstairs staff acted like I was a massive nuisance for trying to check in. Honestly I've never felt so unsafe in a hostel. Drunken people wandering around out the front at all hours of the night, though I suppose that's to be expected of the location. And the location! So far away from the centre of... More

The hostel is placed on top of a bar which plays VERY LOUD music until 2:00 AM, so it's impossible to sleep!! The beds on the first floor even vibrate with all the noise!... On top of that, the windows are not double-glazed so the noise from the street (ambulances, people walking by, motorbikes, etc.) can be heard loud and... More
