Location is a bit far out from central London (close to the O2 Arena though, but we weren't in town for that). The train station is pretty close though. It's on a street corner so the street noise can't really be helped. The bathroom situation was a bit odd with two showers + toilet + sink for 3 rooms. You need to keep pushing a button to keep the water running in the shower too (and the first few minutes will be cold). Overall, it was good for what we were paying for.
Located non-centrally but close to buses/trains for Greenwich, Woolwich, SE London (right opposite rail station). V. clean kitchen/dining room (with panoramic aerial views) and washrooms - but some toilets had no basin, and communal unisex showers had translucent doors and no private dressing area. Dorms are basic but adequate and clean; private rooms looked quite nice. Security could be stronger: I was not asked for official identity proof, and an internal door seemed ajar. No meals provided.
Very clean,feels secured,friendly staff but u need to be provide some sort of breabreakfast in the morning...and the shower need a temperature control.
Good place except for the shower that is really bad, so small and the water doesn't fall continuously enough.
Excellent small hostel with very good facilities. A bit away from London city, but very good transportation to center.
Stayed here the night before the London Marathon. Lovely helpful staff and it was a pleasant stay, but the showers were rubbish. Also did not appreciate being woken up at 2am by noisy neighbors the night before the marathon.
Not even close to London City centre but it's very near the rail so we had no problems finding it. Very clean place. Not many people in the hostel when we arrived, even though we stayed over the weekend. A few eateries nearby including a halal kebab store. Would recommend if you're finding a place outside the city centre.
Good staff and clean rooms, but a bit out of the way of London- had to take a bus and the Tube.
Enjoyed my stay. Nice clean place. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable. Lacked atmosphere abit but for that price cant complain too much.

This hostel was a terrible experience. Not only was the location terrible, but the facilities themselves were also awful. It was difficult to get to by public transport,(basically had to taxi!) and had nothing worthwhile around it. The bathrooms were terrible-- bad water pressure and hardly warm along with no privacy. Paired with the feeling of uncleanliness we were happy to leave London. One bright spot was a staff member who helped us order a cab.
Location is good if you're going to an event at O2, otherwise there isn't anything around. Very close to train station, so easy to take day trips. Feels kind of outdated, and there's no place to lock up your bag in the rooms, but the bathrooms are decent and clean. Not for younger crowd looking to have fun (and by younger I mean under 35..) overall, it was okay.
Room 14. It did what was wanted- a bed in a room which was secure. (It was also en-suite - no problems with that). I suppose £45 for London (even that far out) is actually good value for money!). There was no breakfast, but a useful kitchen on the second floor. It was quiet as far as being part of a pub was concerned being in an annex at the back but noisy as it backed on to a busy road and the door was rather basic. A curtain to draw over the door at night would be good. But everything worked.

wifi was not working most of time, always on and off. room is big, and quiet when sleep. locates in zone 2 but need bus to metro station. kitchen is big and has a pc free to use.
If you want a real british experience i recomend you don't go central all the time while being in london. this place works like an hotel but you share the room with other people. its nice and works great if you want to avoid picadilly circus for a while. showers could have a little more preassure but thats all.
Clean and comfortable in a great location for the O2

Really nice hostel with an excellent self catering kitchen. Nice and very helpful staff. Good bathrooms.
It is a good place to stay, however, it was a bit anoying that they started cleaning the place at 8/9 o clock in the morning when people get up and would like to use the toilest or the kitchen.
The best Hostel i've stayed in. Warm, friendly, clean & comfortable beds. Very friendly and helpful staff. Kitchen clean & tidy. Can't recommend it strong enough.
dorm rooms are large, beds are ok. toilets and bathrooms are cleaned everyday. kitchen has everything. next to Charlton train station. showers must be improved though.
We stayed two nights and a lot of the negative reviews i read were wrong! Or maybe the staff read them and fixed the mistakes. Either way it was in par with all the other hostels I've stayed in backpacking Europe and the staff is very nice. The major draw back is it's distance from the city but with an oyster card its only €2.30 each way on the train. Overall I would certainly stay here again if a hostel in city wasn't an option.
