Aren't too many rooms. Staff were nice to let us stay in the common room as we were only leaving at night. They make an effort to provide everyone with enough plug points, putting many extensions throughout the room. Free tea and coffee. Its really near to the train station, literally 1 minute away if you know where you're going. Lockers available with deposit. Hairdryer can be borrowed from reception.
Room keys were not provided meaning that you can't lock the room but lockers were huge so you can for a hang luggage in then which is good. Internet can be used in room. Few plug points in room though. Breakfast not provided.
location near bus stop and DLR station. security generally good, but its a bit unnerving to walk outside alone when its dark just cause there is almost absolutely no one around. inside the hostel, every door has its code to enter. Atmosphere was pleasant. both genders share same bathroom and toilets. beds were standard, squeeky when you climb up to the top bunk. wifi can be accessed in rooms. staff friendly. overall pleasant stay.
dodgy location with lots of immigrants hanging outside for most of the day. BEWARE OF PICKPOCKETS ON THE METRO, BUS AND ON THE STREETS. Inside receptionist was competent; residents were the friendliest I've met. Free wifi only at inconvenient hours like when you sleep in or leave late. wifi connection only usable in a tiny room, which is almost the only place you can charge your electronics (only one socket in room). Attached bathroom was tiny like airplane toilet, preferred using shared baths.
