We arrived early and they checked us in , it was very nice of them. Overall, this hostel is very nice. It is located in a very nice area , clean facility and easy access to train station just 6 minutes walk to Rotherhithe Station and 15 minutes walk to Canada Water. Very friendly staff and helpful.

Great spot
Awesome place. It was a little further away for us but great likely for those who don’t want to be too amidst the hustle and bustle of a more central location. Easy train access via Canada Water station to go just about anywhere in Central London or the surrounding areas. Breakfast buffet was very inexpensive and fantastic! Great stay overall and would book again for sure if I was lookin to stay in that area.

Great budget stay.
Great hostel stay; good location; excellent staff and breakfast; typical hostel beds (but they were made!). 2 GBP for a towel, but the towels were big and good. Would definitely recommend it.

We had a great time in London and this was the perfect place to stay away from the city. It was a good location to walk to other places and link up with transportation.
