We stayed at YHA Thameside for one night while on a theatre trip. We had three young children so booked a six bed dorm for privacy. The room was large and suited our needs quite well (bed for the night) but had we been without the kids, we wouldn't have thought it so ideal. With the beds being stacked tightly...

Stayed at the YHA Thameside with my partner for a single night. As we were travelling on a budget we booked into the dorms and split up. My night was mostly fine as I was one of the last people to arrive in. My partner on the other hand was one of the first to arrive in that evening so...

Stayed here for 1 night on 16th August. Have never stayed in a hostel before and wasn't sure what to expect but I'm pleased to say I was very impressed. Room was lovely perfect for what I needed(a bed-bathroom) very clean carpet looked brand new,no traffic noise. Someone woke me up banging a Door shut at 6am but you get...

I’m a member of the YHA and find them very useful for overnight stays in London. With 7 venue choices, you can decide which is most convenient for where you’d like to be in the morning. I’ve stayed at St Paul’s….only once I’m afraid, the bonging of the blessed Cathedral bells on the ¼ hour nearly drove me mad, which...

We were booked for two nights as part of our honeymoon. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Complimentary bottle of wine thanks to Mo and the Assistant Manager (much enjoyed after the walk from Canada Water). Room was very comfortable complete with a good sized en-suite. Very nice to see tea making facilities available in the room. The only downside...

My wife and I stayed here for a night on the 9th of August,2015. The hotel was a bit far away from the center, however, it can be easily reached by bus (-No381-there is a stop next to the front door) or by tube (-Canada Water-10 min. walk). The neighbourhood was quiet and far from the crowds of the center....

We arrived on a Sunday, which means there was no bus from Victoria Station , so had to take the underground to Canada Water,with our luggage, and walk through gravel to the hotel. At the front desk, they tell you the bus stop is across the streeet, bu don't tell you they do not accept cash, which means you must...

Very safe hostel full of families and school children. As a family we enjoyed staying here. We were in a room for four We did look into other rooms, and were glad we didn't have six guest in one of those rooms. That would have been very tight. The bathrooms are old, but generally ok. The mornings were full of...

I arrived tired after a gruelling day of travel. Right away the friendly smiles at reception made me feel relaxed and confident that I had made a very good choice. The reason I picked Thameside was because there was no availability in the more centrally located hostels. What a lucky chance! Because, of course, with the Tube, it really makes...
