Fun bar with good food, but beds and pillows were very uncomfortable, rooms were sweltering when windows were closed, showers were annoying to use, and floors creaked, which annoyed the other people in our room if we came in late. Staff were very nice and helpful, but overall not a great stay at St Christopher's.

I booked this hostel because ive stayed at other St. Christopher's around Europe and really enjoyed it. This one however... It is a bar FIRST then hostel. The staff seem to care about the bar customers and facilities and prioritize them over the hostel residents. Music was blasted all night (free earbuds, but what if you have an early start and need to hear an alarm??) Staff was very unhelpful, Was told to wait for kitchen to be freed up due to bar customer's large order. Overall Terrible. AVOID

Hi, thank you for getting back to us with your feedback and comments. We're sorry to read that you felt that the staff prioritised the bar over the hostel guests and can assure you that this isn't the case but perhaps there was a particular occasion or something you felt we could have done better? We would be very interested in hearing your thoughts as a better understanding of what went wrong would allow us to continue to improve and resolve the issue. Thanks the St Christopher's Greenwich Team

tempted to mark everything as excellent but had to highlight location / staff and cleanliness as superb. Security was not an issue either for me......I missed out a little on atmosphere as I was busy elsewhere and did not make it to the bar! Under £20 is pretty damn good.......but could it have been two or three pounds less? Maybe / maybe not. Call me old fashioned but I guess a separate male / female shower and toilet facility would have been preferable for me.

It was fine. Be sure to bring earplugs if you value sleep. Also, not a comfortable place to sit around to socialize. There's the creepy, smelly chill out room in the basement, but not so cozy. Nice breakfast though. Also, I was put in a top bunk with a security light directly over my face. It wasn't easy to sleep, but when I asked for a new bed they helped me change, so that was cool.

Hi, thanks for getting back to us with your feedback. It's great to read that you enjoyed our free breakfast buffet. We do hold some epic parties and noise can unfortunately drift into the hostel, we're sorry about that. For next time, we do provide free earplugs in all the rooms and at reception to try and counter this. We hope you will be pleased to know that we are currently working on a plan to improve our chill out room facilities. Happy travels the St. Christopher's Greenwich team.

Really you get what you pay for with this hostel, it's cheap and cheerfull, but I have certainly been to better hostels - after paying more. I didn't bother with the breakfast, as it really didn't look that appealing. The room was acceptable, and my bedding was clean. The showers were pretty clean, and toilets were also in an acceptable condition. I would agree that the communal room is a bit creepy and smelly, however the luggage storage is very handy!

just your average pub hostel. out of city centre but the price is good. I aprreciate spacious dorms, large and clean showers and cheese for breakfast though actual butter instead of margarine would make it even better :-)

Well for an eight person room there were only two outlets, so id sugest that you bring your own or plan on hanging in the bar or lounge where theres more. The staff was great the place was clean, the wifi was fine too. Having the bar with food at the hostel was helpful, you could stay in and still hang out with people.

St Christopher's Greenwich is a great hostel! The location is perfect (only 8min from London Bridge by the Southeastern line), just next to a train station and also away from the touristic fuss but close enough to the center. Very clean, personal lockers, safe card to access the room and a legit breakfast (fruits, bread, cereal, cheese, ...) I'd say just the atmosphere and the staff could be a bit better better. In general, GREAT! :)

Staff were rude and the hostel was the loudest that I have ever stayed in. The club on the main floor operates until 2 or 3am and there is no chance of getting any sleep until the club closes.

It was quite noisy until 1am when the bar downstairs closed. No sound-proofing at all. In fact, there were ear plugs on every bed because it's apparently a common problem. Otherwise, it was the usual hostel fare, completely average. The price was really quite good, though, and it only took 20-30 minutes to get to London Victoria.

Not enough outlets, and can hear everything from the bar.

We do host some epic parties and sometimes some of the sound can drift upstairs but we offer free earplugs available from reception to counteract this. Happy travels the St Christopher's Greenwich team.

The staff at Belushi's were excellent and being right beside the train station made it easy to get around London.

This is the second time I stayed at a St. Christopher's Inn, and I've been impressed both times. If you are looking for a relaxed hostel with a chill out environment, this is the place for you. However, on weekends the bar turns into a "club" so If you are looking for somewhere quiet, I would go somewhere else. Nevertheless, the music wasn't too disturbing, and everything else was great! I definitely recommend this Hostel chain.

I've stayed at other st. Christopher's locations and was expecting a much better facility and staff. We had difficulties with our flights and the staff was not very considerate or helpful and it was very disappointing. Also, none of the hair dryers worked and since there was a bar underneath the hostel it was nearly impossible to sleep with all the noise until the middle of the night.
