It is cheap and convenient. Staff were friendly and helpful. The place was about as clean a hostel as could be expected, there isn't enough showers or toilets for all the people, which is the same for (nearly) all hostels in London. Breakfast is basic and fine. Only down side is the room was very hot and there was a... More

Easily explained: You get what you pay for. The hostel wasn't too nice, but the location was good. A lot of people partying in the pub downstairs. The staff was friendly and helpful, probably not extremely knowledgeable about London (not too bad).

Hostel was pretty good value for money, we only stayed for the one night and it was just somewhere to sleep for a few hours before we had to move on. It's in a great location, and near to the tube and Borough Market too. The only thing I think that could be better is if breakfast was on for... More

We stayed at Great Dover apart. for one week, in 2 individual rooms. They were clean and noiseless, and we were close to the metro station (10 min walking). The only negative point was the temperature control on the shower: it was very difficult to adjust, so scalding or freezing, there were no middle way (this is the reason for... More

The hostel was very good overall, the service was great. When I first arrived the staff at the check-in desk was very helpful and friendly as was the rest of the staff, the room was very warm but I still slept well and the sight from the room was really nice at night, the location was excellent as a station...

This hostel was amazing! The location is great and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast wasn't much, cereal, toast and fruit, but the location (the pub) makes up for that. The beds were very comfortable and the pillow was great, too. It's an old building, the floors are a bit wobbly and there's no lift. It's on a busy street,... More

Staff is obliging, breakfast is fairish, but there wasn't warm water in the third floor and the smell on the stairs is terrible. But I would still recommend it, because it's really good for the price.

Staff are friendly and location is great - right next to a tube station. However, I would not stay here again nor recommend to anyone because: - Toilets hardly flushed - Had to request more toilet paper from staff on at least 3 separate occasions - Lack of communal space for the amount of people in the hostel (at least...

If you are wanting cheap accommodation, this is the place to stay. However the money you save on the hostel is made up by the money spent on the train. It is a 2.5km walk into the city centre, so location is not fantastic. The room are clean, but there are nos n wash basins. One shower room per floor... More
