I stayed here at the weekend with some mates for a stag doo. I was sceptical when told we were staying in a hostel - how wrong was I. The place was modern and clean, staff really helpful and free onsite parking. The location is pleasant, only slight downside is the noise from the passing trains, not too bad when... More

We were here for a night. Decent sized, clean rooms and bunk beds. My favorite was the breakfast buffet though! Worth the money! Staff were friendly and helpful. I'd recommend this accommodation to anyone.

This is an ok hostel. The entrance hall is pleasing and vibrant and has lots of tables and chairs and there is a TV. The room had 2 bunks and there was enough room to put suitcases on the floor. I did find some rather unsavoury things in the bed, they could definitely be washed better. The bathroom is a... More

Thanks for the review; sorry we didn’t get it quite right this time. Dorm beds are great value for money, for guests who prefer not to share we do have a limited number of smaller rooms which sell for as little as £39 per night, unfortunately these rooms must have been already sold on the night you stayed so the...

I stayed at the YHA one night, and that was probably enough. The self catering kitchen was tiny. There were kids everywhere. People running in the halls at all times of the night. We asked for a twin room and got a 4 person one. Average location (a fair walk to all stations and city centre). It does have positives... More

I've usually been pleased with YHA run hostels, and this is no exception. The food was good and the cooks were very helpful to a gluten free person in our group. Rooms were adequate, though the bunk beds are small. Only frustration was a large group of rowdy middle schoolers who slammed doors all night, with no direction from their... More

We stayed here as a group of 14 from the Boys Brigade using 4 private rooms. We stayed in the London Thameside hostel last year and thought it was great, this one is even better.
