Great place to stay, staff are very friendly and helpful, facilities are good. Irena, a member of the YHA staff, ran activities for a morning which were fantastic fun. Food was very good for a hostel and plentiful. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our specific requirements and to assist with ideas for future visits (Tom). As... More

Stayed here with my 5 year old son in June. Was a nice hostel and very quiet compared the busy london. Very close to train station and easy train ride from London. Noisy banging doors in the night but thats what you get when people are coming and going in hostels. Had to check out early due to last minute... More

For easy access to London (train station a stones throw away) and the lovely Lee Valley you couldn't ask for more. We have stayed in YH's a few times but never really self catered. As there were 6 of us we decided to give this a go. The kitchen, despite being recently upgraded was totally inadequate for self catering. We... More

Check in is from 2pm onwards and we reached at 1.30pm. The staff was inflexible with that of the card key system I guess. Showering facilities were private, spacious and clean but a hot shower can steam the whole toilet... poor ventilation! The beds were comfy and not creaky which we really appreciated. There is a bed light for each... More

We liked the layout of the separate lodges. Our 2 bed family ensuite room was plenty big enough - it had twin beds rather than bunks. We cooked in the self catering kitchen in our lodge, and found everything we needed. We had breakfast served by a friendly staff member - she did seem very busy (I think a member... More

Group of 25. Spacious and clean accommodation. Beautiful and accessible location by car or train. Let down by the catering - they got caught out at breakfast even though we turned up at our pre-booked time. Great for walks along the riverbank. Water sports on site.

The service from the staff was excellent they were always happy to help us they could of not made us feel anymore welcome. The accommodation was clean and all the amenities of home for self catering. We will definitely come again.

I visited this weekend with my 3 year old son. Accommodation was clean and warm enough, considering the lodges are possibly not the easiest accommodation to keep warm. The local area is pretty and far away from distractions such as Telly, Internet and YouTube. Had a lovely stroll by the canal also visited the natural play areas, which my son... More
