I made the right choice staying here during my travel with friends. The staffs were friendly and helpful. Since it was my first time in the city, they showed me what was interesting about the city. Well about the facilities in the hotel, I would say, it is adequate for the price I was paying. The right price for the...

I stayed here to fill in a gap between moving out of one flat into another. There were a few hostels in the area but this one happened to have the best price for an all female room on short notice. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the hostel was located above a hip, tasty pub with great...

Stayed here for 1 night for the price your paying you can't complain room was clean just the showers were cramped not much space in them to get changed and only 4 showers between everyone could do with a revamp of shower area or a place to dry yourself down and get changed.

Deptford is more than you think! There is history to the place which I find interesting. Perhaps it reflects what London has gone through in other parts, and the changes are still continuing. Once upon a time there were about thirty pubs on the High Street. Hard to believe when you see what is left of the good old days...

This was my first experience staying in a hostel and as an 18 year old girl on my own I was a tad nervous. I opted for an 8 person mixed person room and was pleasantly surprised, the staff were really nice and there was 24 hour security. I would recommend a larger room if you're nervous as I felt...

I stayed one night at that place. Not bad place when you need to sleep somewhere and your budget are limited. You shouldn't expect something special in there... At least clean and you have all main things that you may be needed .

A little bit far from the city but near two major train stations (Newcross and Deptford Bridge); the lounge and bar were closed because of reparations; they didn't have computers available and don't allow to print anything on their printer from your computer (inclusive boarding passes), so you need to send them your files and pay to print; the lockers...

First - this is a hoStel, not a hotel. It's a dorm type with communal toilets and showers. But I found it quite good as such. I was staying in this place at the end of May. It had a pub downstairs but the pub and some of the hostel were being fixed up a bit. For 24 pounds I...
