Great staff, great atmosphere and a lively place to be. Always enjoy my frequent stays here, wouldn't stay anywhere else. Can't recommend the place enough.

It's quite far from thr center. Specially if you wish to go out at night, the dlr sistem closes at 23h and night buses don't go there.

This is decent for a cheap hostel in London. Be prepared for shared bathrooms and showers. It's loud bc its above a bar.

This is the perfect hostel for extended, non-weekend stay. The bar does make noise in the weekends, but on weekday it closes early. There is a free washing machine (!) and dryer (!!) and iron, free breakfast that is better than most paid breakfasts I've seen in London. It's right next to the DLR, which does add ~4GBP to every one-way trip you make. But it's timely. It's the perfect "getting started in London" hostel (and there's loads of people here with that purpose).

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.

This is the hostel I use most. It's amazing value, the staff are absolutely awesome, and the bar downstairs is great. Food is good too, and it's right next to the train station which is really handy.

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.

Overall the hostel was fine and a decent value for your money considering this is London. The atmosphere was a bit distant though. From my experience people were either in groups or by themselves. It's far from Heathrow airport so I suggest finding another place if you're only there in passing. Also, the eight bed female dorm room did not have Wi-Fi access which was a huge disappointment.

Nice hostel, but a bit far from the main city, takes about 25-30 minutes to get there by train and metro depending on where you're going. Would be nice to have individual power outlets instead of a couple of power bars stretching across the floor. Love the bar downstairs, except the noise travels through the whole building and the night goes pretty late on Fridays and Saturdays (though they do offer earplugs). The chill-out room in the basement is alright. No real kitchen, just a microwave.

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.

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! :)
