We booked very last minute and when we arrived we were pretty unimpressed from the outside and the pub next door looked a bit dodgy but after having been in our room, all facilities were clean and tidy, kitchen was well equipped although we did find a few hairs in the beds, only downside was that there was the wifi...

Probably, the worst thing in this hostel is the receptionist who works on a daily basis (from 9.00 to 20.0, although she always arrives late at work). I pressume that working as a receptionist in this poor hostel is bad rearded in salary, but even the cleaning girls are more empathetic wth customers (what should not be), than the black... More

The room is ok, with clean bed. But, badly, the staffs behavior is really terrible. They are not friendly, zealous. Kitchen is so so so dirty ans messy. Bathrooms are uncomfortable, otherwise, shower is too hot.

It is a good place if you are looking for cheap accomodation in London, located near New Cross station. Easy to find when you ignore the description they sent together with confirmation email! The place is ran by very friendly staff and they are helpful when you need it. I stayed in 8 beds female dorm, beds were clean with... More

I booked a room for 4 people for a 4day stay in Greenwich,to visit my brother with family. The room cost 264.00 in total for all of us,for the 4nights. Amazing value considering this was during Wimbledon week. We arrived after midnight quite straightforward with travel instructions from my brother,getting off the DLR at Deptford Bridge. Journeys is less than... More

Having stayed in many hostels before, I can clarify that this is absolutely one of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in, and I implore you to avoid it. Where to start? Staff are rude and surly, and completely disinterested in helping you. We went to the bar one night asking for cider and a bottled drink. After some 5... More

Cheap by London standards, but difficult to find. The directions I had got me walking from Greenwich Cutty Sark to Deptford :-D They changed my room from a mixed dorm to a female dorm on request. Good place downstairs with stuff like burgers available on request. I spent 4 nights here in a room that was in no way geometrically... More

On the positive side, the staff are excellent and very friendly and helpful. The hostel is a 15 minute walk from Greenwich pier and market situated in Deptford. I didn't feel it was a very safe area to walk home to at night, although that could have been just my perception of it. Deptford always had a bad reputation for... More
