Liked: This review is following three booked stays over the past few weeks. I like the location best. You can literally go to sleep listening to the sound of the waves of the Thames, and it is very close to the Cutty Sark. Just around the corner, about 50 yards down the road is a Cycle hire place too and you can cycle to Canary Wharf and back for £2 per day if you're quick and careful (get the bike docked in under 30 minutes each time).The hostel is quite good, most of the staff are friendly and helpful, I see the cleaners in every day, but most of the menu is expensive with a pizza costing almost as much as a night in the hostel, but it is very good food.

Disliked: Not much privacy, and not enough plug sockets, so bring an extension cable!

Liked: Good price, good location (near DLR) where you pass amazing Canary Wharf architecture when you go to the city, secure entry, clean showers, massive lounge and free breakfast in the morning.

Disliked: No kitchen facilities and no food was allowed in the rooms, for budget travellers it could be a significant extra cost to eat out.During my stay (April) I've almost melted during the night, in mixed dorms, however, it was a benefit :-)

Liked: Nice, calm location. Good value for money. Clean bathroom and very higenic toilet paper dispenser(I haven't noticed that in other hostels in London)

Disliked: -No lift, but it's common thing in hostels :P-No fridge for guests-Bar toilet was always stinky, but luckily you don't have to use it- you have hostel toilets as well.

Liked: Though a bit far from the city centre (but still in sector 2 of public transportation - only the cheapest tickets required) the location was great - near to Greenwich and Thames, very calm surroundings. The hostel was clean and pleasant. Felt safe to stay there. I had 50% discount so I can't really grumble about much. ;)

Disliked: Poor Wi-Fi, very unconfortable to use. Breakfast was fine but served only between 7 and 9 AM. A bit too hot in bedroom at night.

Liked: Cheap. Friendly night stuff.

Disliked: Beds were not all done when we arrived at 18. Then they said at reception that they would fix it. Didn't happen and so at 1am in the morning when we came back they put fresh sheets on . Just 4 showers.
