Hostelworld says:

The Great Eastern, Bestplace Inn, Docklands is in a quiet neighbourhood near Island Gardens DLR station in London's Zone 2, making it 'easy to get anywhere and everywhere', according to our users. Our guests say this hostel is 'in a lovely location right next to the river', above a pub which is 'a great place to hang out and chill'. We like their professional, friendly and helpful staff as well as their pizza, which has been highly praised by many Hostelworld reviewers.

    I think that the location of the pub is very inconvenient : to acces to the city center by train we took almost more than 40 minutes and we needed to change 3 trains sometimes. Also, I think the staff should be far more friendly. The toilets were dirty in the morning. Nobody to clean it. And finally no kitchen ! For a hostel it's not appropriate, travellers who generally books this kind of accomodation are not rich and actually use a lot the kitchen to buy cheap food and cook it.
