    Booked it as needed one night stay, reviews- some of the negative ones are not doing the place justice. Security is great, just will be nice to know in advance that you need a lock for the lockers. As was running the marathon, location for start line is the best. Town offer you few places to shop if you need anything. Rooms are clean and the fact that there is a bar on the ground floor did not effect my stay. Definitely will come again if needed.

    The place isn't luxury, but really clean. Breakfast for 3.50 - fair enough. Okay for the money.

    Good place to stay for a few days. Light box by the beds don't work, so bring a headlamp. Close to the Overground to London Bridge & Cannon St. Can take the bus or walk (30mins) to Royal Observatory and Greenwich Park. Staff are friendly & helpful. There's no kitchen, but a bar/restaurant downstairs & can eat your take out there. If you're vegan there's Embas supermarket that has a vegan section. And Greenhouse cafe across the street that serves yummy Vegan/veggie food.

    I was a little worried before I went. But when I arrived, I found the staff is very enthusiastic and friendly. The room is safe, because you need to swipe your card to get in, so you can sleep at night. But the location is super far from the city centre, which is inconvenient.

    Venture Hostels was overall a fine place to stay because it was cheap but I've stayed in other hostels in London that were better. While it's close to some buses and a 10 minute walk to the overground, it still took about 40 minutes to get into the city center.

    I booked this hostel meaning to book another. I emailed asking if a refund is possible and i understand if it isn’t. I would have stayed here anyway, no big deal. The hostel responded with an impersonal generic email saying my booking is cancelled and they will be keeping the entirety of my money. They didn’t even ask if I wanted to cancel or not, just assumed. I lost my money and had no place to stay. Very stressful and disappointing and also a waste of money.
