Fabulous 8.6 From 85 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great hostel in ideal location for visiting nearby night club Printworks. Staff were very friendly and price was reasonable, especially considering London location.

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.

Very good 8.0
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

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
