Liked: Nice WiFi from the Cloud, and the man Giovanni understand my Spanglish. The smoking area is better than the bar in the last hostel I visit. The Coca-Cola is very expensive. But is beautiful here. Sonrisa para mi. I come back later.. ;)

Disliked: No hay una mesa de billar. No pulcino pio para mí.

Liked: Nice Hostel, I stayed in the 4bed female only ensuite room. quiet and pretty clean. the staff was helpful and the pub is nice, I spent a good time at The Great Eastern. Value for money.

Disliked: It is quite far from the city centre and the closer areas are not so interesting. You could use the foot tunnel to get in greenwich, that is pretty nice.

Liked: The rooms are nice, the beds come with comforter and pillow. The location across from Greenwich is brilliant, close enough to go sightseeing but far enough to avoid the normal London noise that plague most other hostels. The big coffe shop/bar downstairs is awesome.

Disliked: Nothing - It's exactly like they describe it on the website.

Liked: The location is nice. It is located in a small quiet town. It is far from the city center but when you need to buy day ticket when travelling in london anyway, so it makes no difference. The room was clean with friendly travellers and staffs. Bed and blankets were cozy and comfortable. Showers and toilets worked fine.

Disliked: There was no place to hang towels and clothes except heaters which were not enough. Also during some nights, there were people singing karaoke whose their voices were unbearable.

Liked: 17/11/12 This very comfortable hostel in a little precarious in its kibbutz style politic regarding our placement far too close to Canary Wharf business empire. If there is trouble such as riots or fighting anywhere in London, I don't suggest you will be any safer so close to wealth communications at Canary Wharf.

Disliked: Keith left no negative feedback.

Liked: The bar downstairs is a nice place to hang out. Also the place was very clean, and cleaners came in every day into the rooms and bathrooms.

Disliked: No kitchen or in-house laundry facilties, and they could have done with a common room upstairs that wasn't part of the bar too, but by London hostel standards this place was great!

09 November 2012 Sean would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is very nice, with a pub and lounge downstairs and clean, plain rooms upstairs. The complementary breakfast was simple, but OK - and free food is always a bonus. There are no keys and instead you're given codes to the stairwell and room doors.

Disliked: The shower in my room (room 1) was awful. I ran it for two minutes on a medium heat setting and it was stone cold. Then I turned the heat up to maximum and it slowly became boiling. At about three quarters it became bearable - until it got cold again. It wouldn't have been too bad, but the water pressure was very weak. The fitting the that attached the shower head to the vertical bar didn't work either, so you had to either crouch or hold it in your hand.

Liked: Nice duvets and pillows, good showers, bathrooms were clean. Bar area has a warm atmosphere. Good value for money.

Disliked: Don't feel the property is that secure. Back door open all the time. It needs to have large cage lockers in the room. People were inconsiderate and noisy in the room. Property could do with a laundry facility.
