“Bed bugs”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

THIS HOSTEL HAS BEDBUGS!!! Having stayed at this hostel fairly frequently over the last few months, I never had any reason to be unhappy with it. However, I awoke one morning this week looking up at a bed bug and have a photo to prove it. I have since spent the week trying to avoid scratching the 15 or so bites which subsequently appeared over the following few days - characteristic of bed bugs. I told the reception who didn't seem to care and have sent 2 emails with no response. Disappointing. Definitely will not be returning.

Was a good quiet hotel in zone 2 London not fast from the island garden DLR stop.

The service was good and the weekday price price was very good and included breakfast which included toast, cornflakes, coffee and tea.

They don't have kitchen facilities but you get a half price drink on arrival and make good pizzas.

The shorts and toilets were clean and the round were clean and you have a small security locker.
Could do with some shelving for bags though.

All in all was a clean and quiet hostel.
