          You can't beach Sugarshack's location or prices. Those two alone make it worth it for most budget travelers. The toilets and showers were very nice and clean. However, the communal kitchen was absolutely filthy, and the staff seemed to spend most of their time in...More

          Veryvery cheap, free pool table, nice staff, dircetly next to the beach. Unfortunately the beach itself is very littered and East London itself is no real beauty. But if you decide to go there, you get a good budget hostel for your money
