I have been coming here for nearly 3 years now, and it never changes! Which is fantastic! The staff do not leave and decide to stay, which in itself says a lot about this place.

The facilities here are awful! I would not recommend this hostel to anyone. Plus the staff are very rude and not helpful at all. Definitely dont book this hostel. Made my stay in London very miserable. also Southwark felt like an unsafe area to stay.

Very good location, the friendiest staff, fantastic bar, lovely breakfast, fast Wifi connection :-)) Do not expect luxury!! If you plan to go out after breakfast and come back in the evening, choose Dover.

This hostel looks nothing like the pictures and is terrible! Really dirty and the showers smell like someone took a dump there and no soap in any of the bathrooms. The breakfast is bad and the man in the reception is really rude! Dont go there!!

Best packing trip of my life. We stayed in Dover Castle, loved everybit of it. The Dorms were clean and people are quite friendly here. Stayed here for 3 nights. I is in close proximity to the Thames and London Bridge.. Over all it was a good experience..

I stayed there for one night, staff was very friendly and helpful. I was sharing a room with 10 other people, wasn't expecting all to be that nice and quiet on a friday night. Was a good experience, definitely would visit again.
