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

Stayed here with my partner for one night, it was very nice. Stayed in the 6 bedroom room, the beds were comfy, room was clean and staff were very friendly. Bathrooms looked to be nicely maintained each day, and the price is very good for the service. The New Cross area is also quite nice, there are lots of things... More

I've stayed at the New Cross Inn Hostel twice now and will continue to go back. The first time I stayed in the 2 bed private room and the second time in a 6 bed mixed. I was pleased with how clean the rooms were and you could tell the bedding, linen and towels had been washed (which seems a... More

Stayed here for 4D3N. Price was too expensive for the atrocious living condition. Personal Experience: Stayed at level 3, where 4 rooms were located at the same level (about 20 people). There were 3 shared bathrooms. Among the 3 bathrooms, only ONE bathroom had heated water and a lockable door. The door cannot be locked for the second bathroom. The... More

Very good location and very nice stuff. It is not perfect but for that money is great. Very clean. It is a bit noicy due to nearby bar. Concerning the breakfast it was included but i didn't like it. Stuff allowed us to leave stuff there after check out -so that we can do seighseeing without luggage - very nice... More
