dear friends I love visiting Deptford as there is a street market where you can buy all your friends cheap teeshirts for a £1 each, tht is if you buy five teeshirts you can go further for your pounds and save on washing and drying!!! Seriously it was great being able to stay at the Royal Standard pub as I had a decent bed in a female dorm and I could shower every day and have a decent breakfast as well. I could run for the bus or the overland railway and the transit takes me to Greenwich!!!

It was great to stay there, very nice counter, clean rooms, nice people. The price is very cheap, it is located a little bit far from city center though, If I travel London again, definitely I will stay there !

The rooms were clean and the kitchen had a good set of tools. However everything is tiny. The rooms are small and the kitchen can barely fit three people at a time. Only some of the showers have adjustable water temperature settings. Most of the knobs feel broken. Hot water doesn't last very long either. Laundry was good and the main area was nice. There was a lot of construction and trip hazards when I was there. The staff were very rode, demanding people clean dished immediately.

Thank you for your comment! We are currently carrying our refurbishment works, in order to make our Hostel a more pleasant place for our guests' enjoyment. In terms of asking our guests politely to clean up after themselves, it is a basic courteous gesture in order for everyone to be able to make use of the kitchen space. Hope we see you again! Kind regards.

Own smoking area, washing machine and dryer worked fine, but the kitchen is pretty small.

Thank you so much for your review. We know the kitchen is small that's why we decided to make it bigger by next month. We hope see you next time in our Hostel. Xenia

If you are a girl travelling alone definitely don`t stay at this hostel. Even though this is zone 2 you can only travel with the overground which means it will take way longer to get to the city center or pretty much anywhere. Second, the staff wasn't' really a good humor they were in no way trying to be helpful, just one of them was nice and explained to me the surroundings. Besides being far the neighborhood it's not great I was very scared to walk there at night. The bathroom is also bad.

thanks for your review, we have 4 stations around us, it will only take you 5 mins to travel from the hostel London Bridge, so we totally disagree that you say its far. on the issue with the staff, all our staff are friendly and accommodating, we are available to help all our guest with everything requested, also you mentioned the shower, we only installed the showers last year and they are clean most of time, having said that we hope we will change your opinion next time you visit us

This hostel is not traveler friendly. Majority of the people who stay here a researching for jobs and very unfriendly. The staff really helped getting around. However, I would not recommend this hostel. I was lost for 45 minutes looking for the hostel, which the area felt sketchy and ghetto. The showers are coed and all in one area. It's strange. The bathrooms are all on a different floors.

Dear guest, thank you for the comment. Is a backpacking hostel, but we've guests who are looking for work and also for a place to live. No all of them are unfriendly, as everywhere, there are more sociable people and who are less. We're close to 3 stations, you can feel free to ask our staff (24h) how to get anywhere. London is a multicultural city, where anyone no matter from which country is from has a place to stay. The showers and toilets are separated for hygienic reasons. Thanks, Xenia

Particularly appreciated quiet location, yet easily accessible for Greenwich. Staff were relaxed and helpful.

Thank you for your review! Yes, we are really close to Greenwich (10min by walk) and is an amazing place to go. Thanks once again, Xenia

Great staff, great location (short walk from New Cross station) The bar in the hostel is reasonably priced, and bar staff very welcoming.

Very far from everything. Any money that we saved was spent on transport to get to any sites. Would definitely rather stay in the city center next time.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comment, we are just 5 min by train (£2) from London Bridge. And 30 min by bus (£1.40-£1.50) to the Big Ben/London eye... Thanks once again. Xenia

people who worked there were very nice and helpful. however it was so run down, the common area was creepy to walk into and the rooms were on a slant. and the location was awful. would not stay there

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for leave us a comment, we are so sorry for your bad experience with us. We are disagree about the common area, one of the best things in our Hostel is that always there is a good atmosphere and a good place to meet new people. The location awful? We are situated just 5 min from London Bridge, so just depends what are you looking for. Anyway, sorry once again. Xenia

The directions to the hostel were quite confusing. Couldn't find a train from London bridge to new cross like the directions said. Had to get back on to Canada waters and change there. Staff were pleasant but I was woken up at 2am and told I was in the wrong bed when I wasn't. Nice quiet hostel out of the city. Definitely not a place to stay if you want to party. But good for actual rest. Easy access to food and super markets

Owner Comment (Hide)
we appreciate your booking and your comment, there is train from London bridge to new cross, it is called southern eastern line, it has been in existence for over 10 years, so we are a little bit surprised that you said you couldn't found it, also in respect of waking you up in the middle of night, you must have taken a wrong bed hence why the staff woke you up becaause you are occupying another bed that is for a different guest, above all, we hope we shall see you once again

I've spent a nice time at Venture. The hostel is in good position, close to the Overground and the staff is really available and friendly. I would like to suggest that the lights in the hall should be stronger; I had some problems while reading.

Everything about the hostel was absolutely great. It was definitely worth the money. However, the location is a little sketchy. If walking from the train, there's one dark ally way that you will not want to walk by yourself; especially at night. But other than that, the staff was generous and very helpful!

A group of 7 of us stayed here for one night and it was just what we needed. Quiet clean and cheap. Showers were wonderful and warm and the location was ideal for a night out in Greenwich. Would definitely use again if needed somewhere cheap and cheerful. Thank you.

Decent hostel if you can get it for a good price. The actual hostel part is okay and clean but the pub itself is pretty scruffy.

Second time I've been here and they've put me in the same room twice over, room 13 has one decent mattress and Ive pinch it twice having the room all to myself. Hot showers and decent facilities.
