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, free basic breakfast, roof terrace, self catering kitchen, laundrette, bustling on-site bar, table football, and a coffee shop. We provide free luggage storage for you on the day of your arrival and check-out. There’s even a 20% guest discount in the bar & cafe too!

What more could you want? Book now! We can’t wait to meet you.

    Superb

    15 Jun 2018
    This is a really lovely hostel with helpful staff and great facilities. It’s incredibly central to Shoreditch which is a plus, but on the weekend the street is incredibly noisy (not a problem for me but might be for someone else). As with all hostels, I recommend arriving in the daytime while it is still light so you can get your bearings with the dorms. It’s no fun trying to navigate your way to your bunk in the dark while everyone sleeps (but of course, this was my mistake).

    Friendly and helpful staff, busy street, so it was a bit noisy; very warm to sleep in, even with windows open; shower in my dorm area was quite moldy; beds were very clean.

    Great location and friendly staff. The toilets and showers were not very clean despite a sign posted saying they were cleaned every day. The ceiling was also leaking in my dorm and the whole room and attached bathroom smelled like mildew.

    Quite pricy for what it is. Hostel not very clean and confortable and quite creepy. But the main pb is the noise. It is located in the main street in front of bars and clubs which are crazy loud on the weekend. No sound proofing with the corridor which mean that you will follow every people coming in and out and opening doors as each time it makes an awful sound. As a conclusion, dont come in this hostel if you want to sleep
