Great hostel. Front desk was nice and helpful. Room was clean but a little hot. Hostel is a little far from the city. Took an uber to the city but the hostel is in a nice quiet spot.

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.
