Everything I expected for such a good price, I have seen worse breakfasts for more money before! on the downside I would prefer a self catering kitchen and free lockers if I was going to stay more long term.


It's a definitely great value for the money you pay and everything given in the description matches the reality. The cheapest option is being one of 24 in a room sleeping in 3-storey bunks. The security was ok, two doors with codes provided and if needed locker can be rented for 4 pounds. The location for such price is just excellent - Victoria station is less than 10 minutes away (by foot).

Had a great night's stay at The White Ferry. Arrived very late at night to a warm welcome and comfy hostel. Staff were great, beds comfortable, bathrooms clean and breakfast simple but plentiful. They are triple bunk beds but this is an old building, the ceiling is very high! Anything less would be a waste of space and would result in higher prices for no reason. Transport easy, especially recommended for Victoria coach and train station.


There's no working light in the bathroom and the bar below it can be loud. Some staff members were very helpful but others not at all,


This place stinks pigeons! The toilet was bad! However, it was nice having a bar to meet some people. The Portuguese girl who works in the reception was really nice.


Bed Bug Heaven , Fresh Bedbugs to ea\t you alive . 28 Bites in one night itching and scabs for over a week now . What can i say come stay,at your peril


Lockers are too small, in the hall there is a lack of sockets, besides that it's a great place where to stay


Staff were really helpfull.


Location is excellent and staff is very good, i could enjoy my staying

Is a quite far from the station The reception is the same bar attendents, and if they are busy with their clients you just have to wait. The hostel looks dirty principally the bathrooms was like iif they dont cleaning up dail. The access door for the room was broken (the access code was not necessary) so everybody can get into, and was a room of 15 people was not enough plugger stations Dont have storebaggage it was a cellar where any could enter and take any suitcase Can not make reservatio


12 bed dorm, fully occupied: There are no storage facilities for Backpacks etc. and it was a MESS! There were belongings EVERYWHERE. I had to shove things out of the way. There are 3 tier bunk beds and no room to store luggage under beds. They try and put too many people into a room. There is a little locker for small bags and valuable items though. Very POOR bathing facilities. Only one shower incl.toilet for whole floor. Had to go to another floor to shower/toilet. Great location for 1night.

There were only two of three working showers for four bedrooms (one of them with 24 persons). The staff members were a little rude, except for one (blond and tall guy) he was so kind.


Clean and tidy place, and always full of occupants as this is one of the famous hostels in London Some of the staff were friendly. The staff works by rules and they are so strict with it. Lack of power sockets in rooms is a major issue, where there was only 4 working sockets for 15 bed room

Very nice location next to Victoria Coach Station and to Buckingham Palace. It was why I chose it and it didn't disappoint.


This place was a really cool hostel, very close to Victoria Coach Station, really nice staff. The bar downstairs has a good atmosphere. Only suggestion is to maybe add some vegetarian options to the bar menu and reading lights in the beds. I would definitely recommend this hostel, especially if you need to catch a coach early in the morning.


As ever, *the team* now managed by TED was excellent, the young mainly spanish staff were again friendly and helpful--yes antonia, juanita et all have moved on but thier replacements are just as good--I am 66 and on a budget so i find the prices are excellent value for money--*the inferno* pizza is great and the beer competitively riced at £3.15 a few hundred yards away its£4.60 a pint--money talks!! its also clean and comfortable and by and large the young kids in the ferry are considerate

Location is good. As for me, I didn't need any traffic to go center of city only excepting city bike and even quite close to victoria station. Breakfast was just basic. Cereal, toast, milk, tea, coffee. But i think there were bed bugs in bed. I don't know why it was, as far as I remembered, even though covers were replaced every day.


Biggest issue was probably the staff. Some where nice but others were unfriendly. One guy complained about his job the whole time and was defensive/rude to customers. He should probably not work in hospitality field. Also cleared breakfast before it was over. Place was pretty dirty. The cleaner was too focused to find a good song on his iPod than his cleaning. Bar but no kitchen or lounge area. Triple bed is a bad idea. Good if you just need a place to sleep. Located close to tube.


No A/C and the windows don't open more than 6 inches. Don't go here during Summer.

There was POOP in the shower. Some toilets did not flush, the other showers were also very dirty. Most of the staff is very friendly but the manager is very rude and arrogant. Not a very convenient location and not much to do in the area as far as night-life or much of anything. This hostel made me want to never stay in a hostel again.
