The price is pretty cheap at that excellent location! Especially the breakfast is included - so wonderful! The pub downstairs has fabulous facilities - almost every table has a TV screen so that you can enjoy watching football with friends. Also it was my first time to sing karaoke at the pub in the UK, so fun! haha
Breakfast is abundant! High value for low expense! :))
The staff is absolutely excellent! We are two girls staying this hostel. We had booked a 18 bed mix room. When we checked in, the staff said he had made a mistake that the rest people in the room were all male. Therefore, he gave us another room. (This is his explanation I think, as my English is very poor..) We are very appreciative of it. I don't know his name, but, thanks a lot!
I saw the cleaners doing their work several times while staying in the hostel. They clean the environment very regularly! And the Italian staff in the reception is quite friendly, smiling all the time. The location is a little far from central London but very near the DLR station. I think it is not too dangerous for girls to walk on the street there at night. I've stayed there twice as the price is very affordable! I would recommend it!
It is good that there's a hairdryer for free! But I found it is difficult to use the shower facility so I just took a shower as fast as possible. I think it's better for visitors to ask the staff how to use it first. People there are very friendly. It is a nice hostel to make friends. And Greenwich is a good place to visit. :)) btw, their breakfast is so abundant!
The staff are so nice!! They help us a lot! The tools in the kitchen are completed. The entire environment is very clean. We had a fantastic experience in Backpackers. Just 2 points to advise: 1) It would be better if there is a computer for guests to search information such as bank account status. 2) It would be better if the hostel can accept the paying by euro. Sometimes there are some problems with the credit card or debit card. It is really embarrassing when the card is not working.

I was surprised! The facilities are much better than many hostels! And the breakfast is traditional British breakfast! It is really good for the foreigners who hope to experience the British culture. But it is offered only until 9:30, which I think is too early. The other thing is the location is a little hard to find.
