Music to Ur ears.
The Hostel and staff were great.situated above a music venue which caters for all kinds of genres.also a Sunday roast to die for.i was in a male only 18 bed dorm with each bunk having its own light, plug sockets with usb ports and at the foot of each bed there is a lockable unit to store Ur personal stuff.showers and toilets on all floors also a kitchen and dining area on the top floor which has a job, microwave,fridges and a kettle.20 minutes to the city or 2 stops to Lewisham on the DLR. If it's cheap and cheerful u want then this is it.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness
Can’t check in nor leave your back pack until after the pub opens at 12. Hostel looks like it’s never cleaned. Cold showers and if you go there on a Friday or Saturday it’s loud due to band playing in pub below. Lots of space and privacy as you can close your bunk doors. Poor toilet facilities and some taps not working. Far into centre of London but good for Greenwich
