Do not stay at this hostel
Would not recommend staying at this hostel. Facilities are filthy, ‘women deposit’ bins were completely full and without a lid, whole toilets smelt as a result. The 8-bed dorm we stayed in was extremely small for 8 people, mattresses were very basic but the main issue was when we went to the room (past check in time) we had to wait for the room to be cleaned as it hadn’t been touched and all evening we had 5 groups of people be given a key to our room therefore ENTERED the room (we had booked all 8 beds). We had notified the reception of people coming into the room but even after people continued to come in. As a result we will not be staying here again. However I must say the lady on reception was extremely lovely, rushed off her feet (not her fault) due to just herself been there, so we do want to thank her as she was so so lovely and helpful. Just a massive shame about the people being given a key to our room and the cleanliness of the place.

Clean room, helpful staff, great price.
We stayed in a twin room with private bathroom and found it very clean and ideal for our needs. There are obviously no frills, but it had everything we needed for an overnight stay, the beds were comfortable and there's free wifi. The staff were really helpful, even letting us check into our room early so we could get to the wedding we were attending. All in all I'd recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a clean, functional room at a good price.

Wrong location on the map
I booked this for my friend as I thought it will be near my place. But the hostel's location on the map which shows in the website is incorrect (it shows it's near Lewisham DLR station) and a bit misleading. It turned out my friend had to walk 25 mins from Lewisham DLR station...
