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.

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

4/10 Fair

スタッフの方は親切だったし 値段が値段なのであまり悪い評価をしたくはないですが…気になったのは ・汚い。とにかく全て汚くて、ハエをはじめ虫だらけ ・設備が悪い。エレベーターなし、ベッドは凹んでる、貴重品用ロッカーなし、シャワールームなども不便(女性用は、付近を通る電車内から見える) ・治安が悪い。ちょっと怖い雰囲気のエリアにあり、夜中でも騒ぎ声がしたり、大麻?の匂いがしたり ・スタッフ常駐ではなく、到着時、午前中に荷物を預けようとしたら開いていなかった。偶然、併設のバーの清掃スタッフに会えて預けられましたが 旅行者もいましたが、移民や出稼ぎに来た方の一時的な住まいになっている方が多いようでした。日本人には厳しい環境でした(他のホステルではここまでには感じなかったので、やはりちょっと酷かったと思います)。
