Liked: This hostel is far from center but very near from station. And there are some shops and big super market,so useful. We can use wifi in our room. Staff is friendly.

Disliked: Some people who stay there are not tourists. They are local people and seem to live there. So many people use kitchen,kitchen is narrow.

Liked: Staff, close to metro station, near to a big Tesco.

Disliked: There is a ugly and really dirty kitchen, the room was in a bad cleanness condition, bad wifi connection, one hour far from city center by metro line. They have a good price, by the way you have to pay more in public transport. Poor breakfast.

Liked: This is, surely, the cheapest way to stay in London. It is close to the train/subway stations, and I found it easy enough to get out and enjoy London everyday. The staff is very nice and helpful--read: like friends, not butlers. I played football with a couple of them and even visited a museum with one. While I was there, there were some activities organized including the Football and a Chess tournament. Hot showers are always available. There is a kitchen. Before you consider that it's a little "dingy," or "understocked" consider that many hostels do not offer a kitchen at all. There was a shortage of mugs, but this is a cheap hostel, drink from a bowl; you'll live. While the neighborhood is suposedly one of the more dangerous in London, I come from the perspective of being from Chicago. I heard some sirens, but I never felt unsafe, even walking at night. During the day, I found the neighborhood to be vibrant with plenty of cheap (for London) restaurants and supermarkets including a large 24-hour Tesco. There is CCTV throughout the hostel, so your stuff is relatively safe if you use common sense.

Disliked: As the sign in the kitchen says, "This is a hostel, not a hotel! (Please do your dishes.)" Don't book this place if you think you've found the steal of a deal of the century and this place will be like a 3-star hotel. This place is so cheap, many of the people are folks who cannot afford alternative living in London--not travelers; a varied bunch. If booking a hostel isn't all about the money for you--you like the community of travelers thing, you'll find some of that here, but you may want to consider another hostel. I found the WiFi a slightly spotty, but a lot better than other reviews were claiming (they apparently changed their router.)

Liked: It was near the Tube station, and it was cheap. But you get what you pay for I guess.

Disliked: It felt unsafe, and the place was very dumpy. No heating, and the place itself needed and overhaul of cleaning.

Liked: Absolutely nothing.

Disliked: The location was awful, the neighbourhood unsafe and dodgy, the people slobbish and dirty with permanent stayers, the NO REFUNDS sign before you view the place, the small dirty rooms, DISGUSTING bathrooms with not enough for the amount of people, the small common areas and altogether terrible experience. We left without staying a night, it was THAT bad. DO NOT STAY HERE. Pay the extra hundred to find somewhere at least liveable as a hostel - something this place is NOT. NO ONE should have to sleep in this mess, ever. The manager also is rude and avoids your emails like the plague, he runs a cleaning company which is funny considering how disgusting the hostel is.

Liked: Very cheap and nice place. Close to DLR and supermarkets.

Disliked: The wi-fi is very poor in this hostel, disconnecting all the time. There weren't any security lockers to use because they were all broken. Hard to find any space fridges because they were allways full someone else's food. The hostel is a bit difficult to find because there is no sign from were to enter this hostel.

Liked: It was a communal experience. You get to have breakfast with people from all over the world and hear their story

Disliked: You get what you pay for. I wasnt the cleanest and very far from Central London. It took about 45min by underground with several changes. Breakfast was very basic - toast and cereal.

Liked: I made so many friends in this place! It's well set up with the communal kitchen and breakfast in the morning, and everything else you'd need including cooking and laundry facilities. The staff are super friendly, and there's a really welcoming atmosphere overall. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend this place as the best value for money in London.

Disliked: It's not in central London, but is close enough. The hostel was a bit hard to find - make sure you know the name of the pub it's above!

Liked: nice staff - mario thanks for the help - i owe you a beer. enjoyed late night drinks in the pub downstairs. basic and cheap place for backpackers in london - i used the hostel for a days work i had to do but i will be back to spend some time in london. few people in london working here and a few people visiting makes for a good mix in basic accomodation with a cheerful atmosphere. They suggest booking through hostle bookers as it works out cheaper for the traveler. kitchen was ok i loved the late moring breakfast downstairs and also the late checkout was good - usually hostels are 10am on the dot - here they are a bit more flexable. it was helpful having access to a high street with cheap and affordable food and clothing options. looking forward to see you lot again in a few months cheers

Disliked: everything was fine.

Liked: Provavelmente o melhor hostel budget de Londres. Pequeno-almoco & wifi gratis; comboio e DLR 'a porta do hostel; Tesco 24h, Primark, McDonald's e todo o genero de lojas e supermercados. Mas acima de tudo, o Ordnance e' uma grande familia. Devo mencionar Mario, o melhor recepcionista do Universo, e Lloyd (the Baron of Essex).

Disliked: Precisa de mais chuveiros, mas estao a ser construidos.
