Property Description

Welcome to Shoreditch! We are all about East London. Our hostel is located in the capital’s coolest district, where cool East meets old school Central London. This area is famous for its alternative culture and hipster style.

The hostel is located just meters away from the bustling Shoreditch High Street – home of London’s coolest bars, clubs, restaurants, galleries and independent shops. We even have our own bustling on-site bar.

Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market, Columbia Road and The Old Truman Brewery are all within walking distance of the hostel. We are even near a couple of Banksy pieces! What’s more, we’re only bus trips away from the Tower of London, Oxford Street and Covent Garden.

The hostel is housed in a converted, Victorian-era warehouse and has a wonderful industrial feel. Perfect if you’re looking for something with quirky style and an independent vibe.

We don’t like to brag, but we do have it all: awesome staff, free wi-fi, 24 hour reception, roof terrace, self catering kitchen, bustling on-site bar, and a coffee shop. We provide free luggage storage for you on the day of your arrival and check-out. There’s even a guest discount in the onsite coffee shop too!

    I was staying in a single room here for a week during the COVID lock-down so I can't speak much for the area. I can say that my room was tastefully decorated and clean when I arrived. It's also one of the more comfortable beds I've experienced in a long time.

    Staff was amazing and helpful. The location is great near many bars and restaurants. The only problem I had was my storage was broken and could not be locked up. Still a great value for the money. Would go back again.

    Nice hostel, cool staff! However the music from the club downstairs and the bar next to it is too much, so LOUD you CANNOT SLEEP! Great place if you’re a party animal, want to party all night and sleep as little as possible.

    Very Good

    Only stayed for 1 night at this hostel, but in terms of a decent, safe and well located hostel, this is respectable. I am not from London but London is always more expensive. I think I paid 18 GBP for one night so I thought the value for money was excellent really. No real atmosphere, possibly because the place is so big with so many rooms, possibly 30 plus rooms with 10 beds if I'm not mistaken. So I guess if you are looking to meet people, I would probably edge towards somewhere smaller.

    Great location. Easily spotted. Good price. The shower and toilet were clean. However, in my room, the beds didn't have a bedsheet, pillow, and blanket. It was hard for us since it was wintertime. The staff was unhelpful.

    This hostel was in a good party location if that is what you are looking for, very loud. YOu need card access to get into the building so there is some security. The front desk staff where not very helpful. The restroom in our room would not work throughout the entire stay. When I would ask the front desk about it, it kept getting pushed until the next day. Upon check out, they suddenly had instructions for me. Which where not of use as I was checking out.

    The cleanliness of the place needs to be improved, and storage in the rooms needs to be fixed as people couldn't access their lockers as the beds were blocking them. Also, they need to check how old the people they are letting into the rooms are. I find it very unlikely that one of the men that was in my mixed dorm was younger than 35...

    Hostel is very dirty, the rooms have a toilet and a shower inside, so it is noisy and smelly all the time someone uses the bathroom,which is super dirty. They don't lend plug adapters unless you don't buy them and breakfast is paid and kitchen is dirty. Other guests make a lot of noise, smoke inside the hostel and drink. Very insecure and bad experience.
