We enjoyed our 4 days in this hostel. Our two girls (12 years old) felt like home. The people at the reception were very helpful and very kind. Breakfast was also super. The family room was also nice and also the kitchen in the chalet was good. Only 1 little remark: the cutlery and the dishes in the restaurant were...

Thanks for your lovely review. I am glad the hostel felt like home. It was lovely having you on site and I am glad you enjoyed the London Eye as well. I will pass your comments about the cutlery onto the catering and housekeeping teams to make sure this gets rectified. Hopefully we will see you all soon. Thanks, Rachel...

The youth hostel was very nice (clean, warm, cosy and comfortable) and conveniently located (next to a regional park for relaxing walks and very close to a train station with many fast trains to London) and the staff (Shannon and Rachel when we were there) were extremely friendly and helpful.

Located in a beautiful part of London, plenty of walks in the Park and along the River Lee during the break time of the event i was attending. Beds not too comfortable and very basic, for very short stays i would recommend. Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) avoid, get better in schools. No flavour, low quality. Generally staff is really...

Great place to stay, staff are very friendly and helpful, facilities are good. Irena, a member of the YHA staff, ran activities for a morning which were fantastic fun. Food was very good for a hostel and plentiful. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our specific requirements and to assist with ideas for future visits (Tom). As...

Stayed here with my 5 year old son in June. Was a nice hostel and very quiet compared the busy london. Very close to train station and easy train ride from London.

For easy access to London (train station a stones throw away) and the lovely Lee Valley you couldn't ask for more. We have stayed in YH's a few times but never really self catered. As there were 6 of us we decided to give this a go. The kitchen, despite being recently upgraded was totally inadequate for self catering. We...

Check in is from 2pm onwards and we reached at 1.30pm. The staff was inflexible with that of the card key system I guess. Showering facilities were private, spacious and clean but a hot shower can steam the whole toilet... poor ventilation! The beds were comfy and not creaky which we really appreciated. There is a bed light for each...

We liked the layout of the separate lodges. Our 2 bed family ensuite room was plenty big enough - it had twin beds rather than bunks. We cooked in the self catering kitchen in our lodge, and found everything we needed. We had breakfast served by a friendly staff member - she did seem very busy (I think a member...

Group of 25. Spacious and clean accommodation. Beautiful and accessible location by car or train. Let down by the catering - they got caught out at breakfast even though we turned up at our pre-booked time. Great for walks along the riverbank. Water sports on site.
