"The downstairs bar was attractive and the atmosphere was quite good as music was played late into the night. It was very clean throughout and the decor was really cool."

Liked: Ade, the owner is really taking care of the place and is really friendly. They have a cleaner in everyday so you know that it's actually being cleaned (and the 2 cleaning girls are so nice. They'll always say hi and chat with you). The other staff are also really friendly. It's not super posh, but it has everything you need. They have free internet in the lounge.

Disliked: The overground station that you need to use, New Cross, is a bit out of the way. And only 1 in every 3 trains from Canada Water (off the Jubilee line) go there. But it wasn't the end of the world. People complained about the music at night, but what do you expect if you are in a hostel above a pub. I didn't mind it. Plus they offer free ear plugs if it really bothers you.

Liked: Bathrooms cleaning control each hour. Warm. Staff is ok to help you.

Disliked: Strong bass raggae music until 5 or 6 am : is it an hotel or a jamaican nightclub ? And if you consider that there is no way to have a breakfast after 9am, maybe you should inform people that you have to sleep only about 3 hours a night in this place ! Bathrooms without lock or light. No pillow. Walls in paper : vibrations and sounds from the outside or other rooms everywhere.

Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were quite big - at least in the dorm of 6 - the breakfast was decent. Free wi-fi throughout the entire hostel was excellent, although sometimes didn't work.

Disliked: A lot of people were here long-term and they took over the common areas so it was virtually impossible to use the kitchen and the lounge unless you were part of their group. The bathrooms, although cleaned regularly, were still quite gross and smelly. Often, the cleaning also took place late at night as everyone was trying to get ready for bed, and with only 4 shower stalls and 4 toilets for the entire hostel, a whole bathroom can't be taken out of commission like that. Lastly, although they say there is storage for bags, there isn't any secure area to store apart from very narrow lockers in the rooms. The hostel dumps bags behind a banstand in the pub completely unsecured.
