    Clean and functional. Efficient staff. Good facilities. Plenty of bars and places to eat nearby. Close to New Cross station. Definitely recommended for short stays. Someone in another review said the area was rough. I didn't think so. I spent Saturday night drinking in New Cross and didn't see any trouble.

    My friends and I really enjoyed our stay here. The atmosphere and communal area was great, however there is no kitchen for those staying to use. The facilities could also do with a bit of an update, but we didn't spend much time in the hostel aside from the communal area, so we still really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were lovely too.

    The location vs price is great for London, with great connections for transportation. The bathrooms are shared between all the guests, it has the toilets in one floor and the showers in another so if you're in for privacy, that might not be the best, however, Ade was AMAZING. He helped us at check out and was a delight, super friendly and ready to help (hope you go to Barcelona soon!)

    People in my room were annoying and not courteous, key cards didn’t work and there wasn’t much of a choice in the kitchens. But short staffed too. I’ve stayed in hostels before and I know not to expect too much but I just got frustrated with staying here and left early. Staff were friendly and did do there best. There was a good water fountain facilities available here too. Also a washer and a dryer.

    This hostel is nice and relatively clean but it is nowhere near the city center and takes a good 30 min to get to any tourist attractions. The beds were comfortable and clean, same with the bathrooms. My biggest criticism aside from the location was that there was 3 older people that like lived there long term and they sat in the lobby/bar drunk all day and then (one of the old women lived in our room) they would come in at like 3 o’clock being super loud and drunk to get ready for bed.

    Lovely staff with great vibes. I enjoyed the atmosphere and service that was provided. Breakfast was limiting and overpriced for what was offered. Triple stack bunk beds with little space in room made a stuffy environment. I was bitten by fleas. Not the most pleasant experience. Showers and bathrooms where ok. Space was very limited. Lockers are flimsy, so I didn’t lock my belongings people there felt safe anyways. Great access to London overground train.

    This was the first hostel I ever visited in London. It was very hot in the bedroom, I had to sleep naked, and the curtains on the beds barely provided any privacy. The showers and the toilets were located on two different floors and the entire building is structured like a maze. I did like that showers were big, and the staff were all so helpful, but otherwise, not my favorite hostel.

    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.

    The location for the price was alright, though there are a lot of people urinating in public just outside at night. The rooms were stuffy and somewhat smelly but otherwise clean enough. The toilets and showers were extremely smelly, so much so that we chose not to use the shower. What was most disgusting though was that breakfast was served with all bowls, plates and cutlery that had not been properly cleaned with visible old food on them. The staff were friendly but the place was unhygenic.
