I was really worried about staying here because of some of the other reviews but was pleasantly surprised with the room. I stayed one night, the room was nicely decorated and clean- the bed was really comfy! Also, there were fresh flowers and lots of storage space which was really good. There is quiet a bit of noise from the street but it isn't too bad. The bathroom needed a clean and I can't comment on the shower as I didn't use it. We had some trouble with out swipe cards and had to walk back to the main reception to get them fixed, a bit annoying when you have to walk a block in the snow, and mine still didn't work. The girl on the desk when we checked in was really lovely, but when we went back about the cards there was a guy who was unhelpful and quiet rude. I guess it's luck of the draw! Overall, the hostel was comfortable and in a good location (across the road from the wonderful Borough markets and walking distance to the Tower of London) and for the price we paid I thought it was a good deal.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Oasis Hostel in London Bridge is exactly what it sounds like - a protected retreat of tranquility just for girls, right in the heart of London. This entire hostel is female only and it comes with lots of extra little luxuries, including fluffy towels, super soaps and those extra finishing touches that make any break away from home a bit more special. This youth hostel shares a check in, reception and breakfast area with the St Christopher's at the Village hostel on the same street - so there's plenty of opportunities to meet fellow travellers from all walks off life and you get to make the most of the on-site nightclub, cinema, comedy club, bar and restaurant - also at the Village. Add to that the fact that Borough Market and the Tower of London are on your doorstep from this location, and you're guaranteed to have a good time. When you've finished tasting the many free food samples at the belly bulging Borough Market, an amazing walking route along the River Thames is only minutes away. After you pass The London Dungeons and Sir Francis Drake's ship - the Golden Hinde, this path heads west to take in St Paul's Cathedral, the amazing and free Tate Modern Gallery, the OXO Tower, Gabriel's Wharf, the British Film Institute, the Southbank Centre, the London Eye, and the Houses of Parliament! Needless to say, you won't be at a loss for something fun to do! This London Bridge location is also a short train ride away from Greenwich with its famous observatory where time is set, the Maritime Museum, the 02 Arena and the Cutty Sark tea clipper! ... more less
