Liked: The whole place was clean and tidy throughout our stay. The decor of the place gives a welcoming feel and also very 'London-esk' feel. The room signs and tube station painting give it a great feel. The rooms are basic but just what you need. Comfortable beds and lockers.

Disliked: The plug sockets weren't very strong but there is a charging machine you can pay for to charge any type of phone.

Liked: I've been living in this hostel for many months (namely, 5). The stuff is most helpful. If you need anything don't be shy, do ask ! Things change in the hostel from time to time, as the decoration, something which shows how the owners want to keep doing it better. As London changes with time, so does the hostel. And change is good. It keeps you fit and alarmed. Another great plus this hostel has is it's location. For my purpose and character the location is close to perfect. There is a big park just some feet in the corner where one can do some jogging and a nearby gym. Also it is close to the Datford library, following the path through the park and under the rails. And where there are libraries, there is always hope. I know it probably looks nasty for some. But appearances can always deceit. Angels never hide where there's pleasure for your eyes. Maybe you should use your other senses. Enjoy the good gigs in the New Cross Inn Pub. They are frequent and I had some really great time, listening and dancing to jazz and funky stuff and socialising with the students in the area. Oh yes, this is the best part. Since you're very close to Goldsmith's College, you'll encounter a lot of creative people. Artists, scientists and hybrids. So be open minded and you're gonna love it. A big plus is the very good connection with trains and buses to the centre. New Cross Gate can get you straight to London Bridge, and elsewhere, and there is also New Cross station. Ask for more info the reception, or just google-map your route. Simple like that. Cleanliness. Every morning my fellow friend cleans the common room, and pretty much the whole hostel. Mind yourselves these few moments after the breakfast and take a break. Also, clean towels are offered (ask !) for free, and one can exchange them for clean one's as well. No charge. I'd advise you to be a part of the community of the hostel. And help a bit to sustain a clean environment by cleaning your dishes after you use them. Facilities/services. Except of those mentioned above, there is free breakfast every morning (try to wake up early). Cereal, coffee, milk, bread, butter and jam are offered. Also, a very big plus for those considering exploring the area for many days or just staying there, is the luggage room. Storage for those who are in need. Very helpfull and humane in these turbulent times we live in. Also free earplugs are being provided for those with sensitive ears. There are lockers. And from my experience in a very good price. I'd advise you to use them, if you like keeping things ordered. Chaos can creep in your daily activities from everywhere (you're in London dummy !) so I always found it handy for me. The area no matter how bad might look in the first time you get there it is relatively safe. Use your common logic and everything will be all right. I had no problem all this time, and that's because I followed the advices of Daniel and Peter and watched my stuff. London is like a beautiful woman. If you let her beauty relax you, you'll probably get hurt. So don't let go too much and have fun !!! Summing, it is a value for money. And above all for human beings.

Disliked: It seems I'm approaching an old age, and I enjoy frequently staying away from traffic. Now that I remember, I always enjoyed not having traffic near my house. But there are always counter-measures for this. Mp3 players for example or earplugs. Maybe it's because I'm more of an audio person than a visual (bad eyesight). Sensitive ears my friends say.

Liked: Everyone I met here were lovely, no bells and whistles but just a nice average hostel. Its a reasonable price for a bed and simple breakfast. The staff were very helpful and friendly, my roomates were long term residents and also very nice.

Disliked: The location is not ideal, it is definately off the beaten track, the trainline was not exactly direct to anywhere useful for a tourist/traveller so youneed to changeover to get into the city. If it wasnt for location i would have extended my stay, but it was too far out for me and would have wasted money on transport.zz

Liked: Clean bathrooms and clean rooms in general. Obliging staff.

Disliked: Loud rock music played every night till 10 pm sometimes 12 pm. This is becausr there is a pub directly beneath the hostel. In my opinion, at some times unacceptably loud. People need to get enough rest when staying in their room. Also, the wifi could not support all its users. No wifi in your room.
