Det var et ældre, men renholdt hotel. Der var god service i restauranten om morgen, og der blev gjort pænt rent hver dag. Det er et ældre hotel med mørke og kedelige farver på væggene og interiør. Hvis man ikke ser bort fra dette, så er hotellet ikke stedet.
God beliggenhed for de, der kører i egen bil til London. Blackheath tog-station 7-8 minutter fra hotellet. Kan være "kamp" om at få parkeringsplads - færre pladsen end hotelværlser!
Venligt og hjælpsomt personale, hyggelig bar. God morgenmad. Måtte stå i kø ca ½ time lørdag morgen, for at kunne få morgenmad.
Mit ophold var meget kort, men jeg husker bedst personalets venlighed og de meget smukke omgivelser/beligenhed.
God beliggenhed i en hyggelig lille "landsby" lidt udenfor London City. Gode Værelser. Opmærksomt personale. Morgenmaden er sandsynligvis typisk engelsk, men pølserne er ærligt talt ikke noget at skrive hjem om.
The staff was incredibly friendly, they gave me a towel for free because I was staying for so many nights. Any time there was an issue it was solved immediately. Met a lot of great people staying at the hostel. The bar was low key and the beer/cider was relatively cheap. The pool table was great for something to do when everyone was winding down for bed. The whole place was cleaned every day, the cleaning ladies were very nice. It was cheap and close to a national railway station, an overground station, and a docklands light railway station. If you stay here, definitely get an oyster card! I really enjoyed my stay! The pictures are a little deceiving, the place is a little disheveled. The chairs and tables in the bar are in various states of falling apart. The water had to be shut off for an hour in the middle of the day when there was a leak that went from the toilets upstairs, through a room, and down into the kitchen area. They felt really bad and gave those of us that were there a free beer. The situation was dealt with very quickly. One morning the toilets were out of order upstairs, so you had to go downstairs. When I came back a couple hours later the situation was dealt with. The neighborhood is a little bit of a trek from downtown London. You've got to take at least two trains to get to the real sight seeing stuff. It's also a little rough as a neighborhood, but I never had any issues staying there for 10 days.
The free breakfast had with hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereals, etc. The staff was nice and helpful! There are limited toilets and showers, but I didn't have a problem since not too many people seemed to be there. Only thing is that there's definitely not enough sinks. Showers were great and hot. Out of management control, but some guy pissed in the showers while I was getting ready for bed ... wear your flip flops.
The bed itself was pretty comfortable, all linen, blanket was good and cosy. When I came there, about 1am Saturday, hostel's door was locked and the reception was located in the pub/bar/cafe which is next door. I came in there and was a bit of surprised cause there were only black people. a lot of people, very very loud music. Really very loud. Well, i'm not a racist but if there are black people only it's a bit strange.. I mean, why there are not any white guy? May be it's unsafe here? I registered at reception (the guy there was nice), paid my rent, got the access code and went to hostel (next door). In Hostel itself I have seen only white people. It was very hard to fall asleep despite the bed was cozy. There room was full of people and the music from that pub/bar/cafe really beats upon my head.
Cheap, friendly, clean and a good mix of people. Various guys sitting on the landing with their laptops out.
Nothing :) The breakfast :s
Tidy, clean, friendly hostel. Exactly what it said on the tin! My stay was great - will look forward to returning next time I'm in London. Really convenient to the London transit system - 15 min to Waterloo! No complaints!
Nothing. Everything. It was apalling, with a draft coming through a broken window in the room - didnt get any sleep atall because of the noise and cold coming through window.
position and costs are a plus, but that's all breakfast is orrible, everything looks dirty, bathrooms with showers are an exception and usually busy, but it's nornal for the price they ask for
