As we are completely open about what is great about the hostel, we are also open about what you should consider before booking. So please read the following as we don’t want you to be disappointed upon arrival.
Before you travel here buy an Oyster card as soon as you arrive in London. It makes travelling around London and to the hostel so much cheaper
We are 35 minutes by underground from the official center point of London, Charing Cross. A short travel time by London standards! If it takes you any longer to get here you are not using the public transport correctly!
The hostel is located in the remaining corner of a former castle with a rich history (*cough* brothel *cough*). In no way are we falling down but it does show its age with scratches on the floors, little marks here there and well used couches. We like the lived in feel it creates so if you are expecting marble floors, velvet curtains and silk sheets its best to look elsewhere.
Our bathrooms are so big and homely some guests and couples tend to stay too long in them, so you might have to queue for the shower in the morning. We recommend to book a bed in one of our en-suites dorms if this would be an issue for you.
Our 10 bed mixed dorm with shared bathroom is beside our common room which is often filled with guests eating, drinking and being merry. If you are a light sleeper please do not book a bed in that dorm; it’s why it’s our cheapest room.
Some guests seem to think that this area is a bit ‘sketchy’. It’s not, and guests experiencing a huge metropolis like London for the first time will think this way until they get used to it.
Now it’s time for all the good stuff!
Our staff are all seasoned travellers and have lived in London for some time. They can give you advice on what’s on around London, where to go and who to do. Being so close to East London means that you guys will get to see the alternative side of London’s galleries, street art, markets and underground cafes and bars…. Sounds alright!
We are proud of our hostel and keeping the place clean and our facilities are cleaned 3 times a day.
We are big on security and provide lockers free of charge (bring your own padlock), CCTV throughout the hostel and keycard entry system for all doors
Check in is from 12pm but if your bed is available before that we will let you check in early, if not we will store your luggage for free and even let you have our breakfast between 8am and 10am. Check out is by 11am
We look forward to seeing you
***GROUP BOOKINGS FOR MORE THAN 9 PEOPLE WILL NOT BE HONOURED. PLEASE CONTACT THE HOSTEL DIRECTLY***
At our hostel, our larger dorms have newly installed bathrooms with walk-in showers and tiled floors. All dorms have high ceilings, are spacious and have lockers for each bed.
Dorm sizes range from 6 bed, 8 bed & 10 Bed with a choice of either en-suite or shared bathroom
We have a spacious female-only dorm which is proving to be very popular so we recommended you book early.
As we are on the famous Green Street beside West Ham Football Stadium, our hostel is serviced by excellent transport links and is very easy to find. Just a five minute walk from the nearest underground station and major bus routes stopping right outside our door; there is no excuse not to explore!
We are 20 minutes from Brick Lane and Shoreditch and all of their wonderful markets, cafes, bars, clubs, pub crawls, restaurants and hipsters to go and gawk at. Debauchery heaven!
We are only 20 minutes away and the closet hostel to the Olympic Park, o2 Arena and the ExCel Convention center which all regularly host the biggest concerts and conventions in London
We are the closet hostel to Stansted and Southend airports.
We are only 10 minutes bus ride away from Westfield Stratford shopping center. It is the largest urban shopping center in Europe with a huge cinema, selection of shops, 24 hour casino and the best transport links in London!
The hostel is located on the 2nd floor of the Boleyn Tavern Bar on the corner of Barking Road and Green Street. OUR ENTRANCE IS A BLACK DOOR ON GREEN STREET AND ALMOST HIDDEN. Sorry to shout but some guests find us hard to find. We are on the famous Green Street beside West Ham Football Stadium; just follow the signs from Upton Park Tube Station.
