No windows in the room so it was ridiculously hot in there. A guy was asleep in my bed when I turned up so I had to wait to get access. Toilets were relatively unpleasant. Was told I could check out anytime before 10am but when I tried to check out at 645 I couldn't so lost my key deposit.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. While all our rooms have windows some are smaller skylights and we know they allow limited ventilation, we have been trying to combat the unusual heat with additional fans but are sorry this was not enough. We're sorry you were misinformed about our reception hours and will speak to staff to ensure this does not happen again, you may like to know your deposit has been donated to the Team Margot charity, The St Christopher's Greenwich team.

The staff was excellent!!!! Thank you so much for being so helpful. As far as facilities go, rooms are great, chill-out room is great, there just needs to be more ventilation in the bathrooms. Too many people take showers there everyday for there to not be something better in place. It makes the whole experience feel stuffy and gross. Also, if there were hooks and/or shelves in the showers there would be a place to put your clothes while you shower so they don't get wet on the floor.

People in this hostel feel so good and relax that they can often forget that it will be better for them to socialize more. The hostel is clean and well located in a touristic area and not so far from central London.

Decent hostel. The beds and facilities are nothing special (although the chill-out room is pretty cool) and the location is a bit far out from the city centre, but for the price its really good. Great atmosphere in the bar and very nice and helpful staff. Great for younger travellers and people who love to party.

This hostel is getting better and better since the first Time I got there. To me, it is the best in London (among all those I visited) regarding the value for money.

The temperature downstairs and in the dorm is horribly hot and stuffy. With eight females but one tiny window and a fan. Couldn't even breathe properly! Didn't have proper sleep those nights. Kept sweating. If the hostel isn't doing anything about that, I'm pretty sure I won't choose this hostel again in summer. Apart from that, others were totally fine.

I loved my stay at this hostel. I endured a few problems, but staff were able to help me even if it was 1am In the morning. I loved my stay, especially as it was 35 degrees and one of the hottest days of the year. The hostel provided fans and kept the rooms too a really good temperature. I would thoroughly recdomened staying here if you are looking for value for money. The location is great. DLR is in walking distance and plenty shops are near by. 4.5 stars

Great place and staff very friendly. Chilling out area probably needs to be on the ground floor with windows and ventilation but apart from that everything else is tops for the money you pay...

The bar music was extremely loud at night, the rooms were hot, bathrooms were dirty, staff were not overly friendly, breakfast hours were not long enough

Hi, thanks for getting back to us with your feedback. We're sorry to read that you found our facilities did not live up to your expectations, we understand that during very hot periods the rooms can get warm so we do try and accommodate this by placing fans in all the rooms. We're sorry you felt the staff weren't very friendly, our guys love their jobs so perhaps there was something that stood out which we can work on to improve for next time?

The smell in the common room needs to be addressed, as well as issues with lockers. The staff was very good about dealing with any problems.

Great value for the cost. Staff were lovely and the convenience of the pub is great. Also, the free breakfast is rather generous. There's also free laundry available (well- almost free, you do pay a pound for detergent). Only problems were that the room was packed. Opening your suitcase instantly took up most of the floor space. Also there was only two electrical sockets for the entire room. So if 2/8 people in the room happened to be charging their phone, you were out of luck.

This hostel if fairly low-cost for central London, but for good reason. It is quite run-down, really needs a renovation. Paintwork is very rough. Mould growing on bedroom ceilings. Showers have poor ventilation. "Chill-out" room is a windowless basement level with no ventilation, dark and smells very bad. On the plus side, it does have free breakfast and laundry which is good. There are nicer places for similar money in London if that is what you seek.

Greenwich is a beautiful little part of town. Great location for relaxing and seeing things outside the typical London tourist stuff. The hostel is great, there are lots of stairs to get to the rooms. Good events to get people mingling. Lots of people my age to hang out with. Could improve chill space, especially those metal chairs. Also, the showers are a little sketchy on the cleanliness side. I loved it here, though. The bar downstairs is amazing. I definitely recommend!
