Comfortable stay
Neat and clean rooms. Big and open lobby with a really nice cafe/lounge. Good breakfast - if you decide to buy it. Great value for money. I would love to stay here again. The water pressure in the shower could be slightly more though

Really great hostel in a good location near Rotherhithe overground station. The staff are lovely, they even found me a cheaper room without needing to. Bargain London stay. Good cheap breakfast. Comfy bed in a perfectly adequate little room with private bathroom. Even had a view of the city that you wouldn’t even get in an expensive hotel. Would heartily recommend if you’re travelling on a budget.

Great Value
The hostel was in a convenient place for our visit to our son in Canada Water. The room was basic but had everything we needed. The overall decor and bathroom could do with a bit of updating. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hostel was secure and quiet. It had a bar open until 2am for drinks and coffee. We would stay here again, good value for money so close to the centre of London

The hostel itself was great. The area is perfect as well but it is a bit of a commute to get there from central London. My only criticism would be gaining access at night, the intercom doesn’t work properly so reception does not want to open for you. I would stay there again without question. The beds all have there own light, plug and usb points. The rooms could use some more lockers though.

Great Location just south of the River, room of 3 bunk beds was large, clean and functional. Everything worked bathroom was clean, and all phone charging points by each bunk was an extra bonus. Staff friendly and breakfast and bar was good and reasonable price especially for london. We will look to stay again when next in the area
