    There are few professional people who would use a mixed dormitory however the location was only 2 minutes from where I needed to be during the day for two days and the cost meant that I saved time and money travelling to and from home on the south coast that evening, It would be good not to be asked for a key deposit, this I found quite strange but didn't leave a deposit when I queried it. You do share with others, in my case, two men that being a female many would consider odd.

    Mervi is awesome. Everyone at the Finnish Church is really helpful. And they leave you breakfast in the fridge when they close on Mondays.

    Lovely warm place, friendly staff, comfortable beds, although disappointed they only have bunk beds, as it was difficult to sit up on the lower bunk, and the room was tight for four people.

    The people at the hostel allowed us to keep our bags there after we checked out so we didn’t have to haul them around London. The little souvenir shop is adorable and filled with Moomin merchandise which i was suprised and delighted by. The facilities are fantastic and there is even access to a sauna, I will definitely be staying here again on my next trip.

    Quiet, efficient hostel with helpful staff. Small dormitory room but it was a great price and was a lifesaver when me and my friends needed somewhere to stay last minute. Well heated even on a very cold night and really handy breakfast available.

    Great stay, very close to Rotherhithe and Canada Water. Staff members incredibly friendly and guests tend to be nicer on average (and Finnish, of course). However, room itself can be a big squeeze especially if fully occupied. Shower and toilet facilities adequate, shower is a bit unpleasant since it was always turning cold however. Small kitchenette with a microwave and fridge. Entire place is very clean and given breakfast is included I think 29 pounds is more than fair.
