good location, nice clean room, excellent value for money
Staff were pleasant and the hostel is located right across from the train station and close to a grocery store, which was handy. The room was quite grotty and the whole place had a depressing atmosphere.

Good place to stay!!! Nice staff, good fully equipped kitchen, wide rooms, comfortable beds, enjoyed my stay there!!!
This is the second time I stayed in this hotel. It is an excellent place to stay in London and very convenient to travel or buy basic needs because of nearby Charlton train station and Sainsbury supermarket. The hotel is very clean, safe, and well maintained. The staffs in this hotel are very friendly. I will stay here again in future.
Everything was clean but the facilities are not as it was expected, considering the price paid. The showers dont work properly, you have to keep pushing the button every 10 seconds to remain the water flow. The kitchen was OK, everything was provided. The lockers are charged and they are not cheap. The hostel is in zone 2, very close to a rail (train) station thus, you are able to be on the most important touristic places in London in 30 min by far.
I'm not sure why this place was rated so highly. Pros: relatively cheap, close to shops and train station, has a nice kitchen. Cons: showers either didnt work or had to be pressed every three seconds, everything is so run down it just feels dirty, super far away from city center, no lockers, little to know atmosphere. not the best or the worst okay for a short stay.
It is a very nice hostel to stay and the staffs are very friendly and helpful. The room and toilets and kitchen areas are very clean and quiet, and the Charlton train station is only a few minutes walk to travel to all other tour places in London.
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.
This was an okay one night stay. More like a hotel than a hostel, but us a nice kitchen. Not the cleanest and the street noise was extremely loud. Good to crash in transit but I wouldn't stay for long.
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.
