Liked: Very clean, good location near to the tube, and friendly staff.

Disliked: Disliked being on the highest bunk of a three-man bunk bed. I felt like I was disturbing everyone each time I climbed up and down.

Liked: Very good hostel, clean (I was in a ensuite dorm, I didn't see how was the shared toilet and shower), security code to access room and also to the hostel area that is above a pub. Basic hostel breakfast with cereals and toast. I was a little late, the guy was already cleaning but he was really nice giving me some coffe and waiting me to get some toast.

Disliked: Location, not central. But it's great to visit Greenwich, just across the river

Liked: Fantastic staff! Everything was clean. It's only about 5 minutes from the tube station, and in London I feel like proximity to the stations is more important than location within town. There's a restaurant in the hostel if you're too tired to go out for food. All in all, a great place to stay!

Disliked: It is in a less crowded area, so if you're a female traveling alone, try to be home before dark.

Liked: Very clean, breakfast was decent too. Only cereal or toast but given the price, can't really complain! :D Staff were really friendly as well and lack of curfew meant I could check in at 11pm without a problem.

Disliked: Nothing really!

Liked: Reasonably priced, quiet neighborhood, clean... Pub downstairs

Disliked: more of a suggestion... the room we were in was 6 beds and the balcony doors had been nailed shut (out of concern for drunken safety I assume), however the one tiny unlocked window wasn't enough to provide decent air/circulation in the room... Was fairly stuffy and hot... Put in a ceiling or floor fan so nobody dies due to lack of oxygen.

Liked: ...

Disliked: Staff were not too helpful, didn't speak good English. There was three toilets and four showers for probably 60-70 people. There was 36 people (max) on my floor and one toilet that was constantly blocked. No easy to access power plugs, no free locker storage. I felt like a chicken in a battery farm

Liked: Free breakfast, very clean. Right next to Greenwich, which is a nice area to visit. Quiet area of town, though a little out of the way. Chill atmosphere, nice if you are looking to relax, not party.

Disliked: There were no computers, only wifi. No towels for rent, only for sale. Some of the staff could have been a little friendlier, though the rest were lovely. They double booked one of our beds one of the nights, which led to a bit of a fiasco. They need to better their computer records.

Disliked: Is a bit far from central london. The wifi did not reach the third floor.
