I think this hostel is pretty good and you get what you pay for. The staff do what you ask them but can often be kind of slow. The rooms are nice and clean but there is not much space to put your luggage on the floor.The toilets are clean but they need more of them. One of the things... More

Overall not a bad hostel. I stayed here in July 2014, and it was full with people. It is quite clean and tidy, the bathrooms are decent. However, for a hostel with a capacity for 100 people there are not nearly enough toilets and showers, sleeping is decent (if you are lucky to have good behaved roommates) although it can... More

The staff was great and helpful, but we had very bad experience with our roommates. They didn´t know what the cleanliness is. Room and bathroom were very dirty because of them. Anyway, I really recommend this place. Next time, I will stay there again.

Stayed here for a few days early September last year. Excellent service, friendly bar staff and the room was great as well. Good location for getting about London on the DLR and tube. Anytime I am back in London I will be stating here!!!

This was a post Xmas and pre New year booking I made on account of the low cost during this period and I can honestly say, If I'm staying in London for just a couple of nights with minimum luggage, I would recommend it. Mostly I ended up carrying my luggage all over London during the 2/3 days I was... More
