In general our stay was pretty terrible with the bad hygiene and the saddest breakfast ever, but I guess the moment we came home and found somebody else sleeping in my friends' bed was the worst. Turned out they didn't check her in correctly and booked her bed to somebody else. There were no vacancies in the neighbourhood and she...

PubLove@greateastern is in Docklands with easy access to the transport network via Docklands Light Railway and local buses. Helpful staff. Pub in ground floor (but music stops at 11pm). Breakfast is included in reasonable room rates for bunks. Good basic accommodation

Stayed in the 4-person female dorm, bathroom was very clean, and it was great value for money. Also like the downstairs space reserved for guests - very spacious and comfortable :) Only criticism is that the reception could be better sign-posted, walked all the way around the pub before noticing it.

A very spacious lounge, very friendly male staff (females less so!), quiet location, no upper age limit and reasonable prices make this a favourite hostel. Mix of young travellers and "flexible working" people. Toast/packaged cereals breakfast included in price- boring but helpful. Too many people for only two working showers and, tediously predictable, some selfish/nasty individuals will not respect basic...

We spent two nights in this hostel and was very nice. Breakfast is available every morning in the common area; rooms are clean and you can have fresh linen every day. Nice location and friendly staff as well.

Good people stayed here and the staff was very nice and helpful. I booked this last minute when I had a layover flight in the morning. The hostel was very close to the London city airport. I did not have pillow so only negative part.

If someone search for a place near to Greenwich, Isle of Dogs, Canary Wharf this hostel could be the best choice. There is a pub and a large room for the hostel guests downstairs. Food is really good. The only disadvantage was the really bad mattress of my bed.

A great place to stay! Awesome staff, convenient location, very affordable, and just good vibes in general! Go down to the bar for a pizza and a pint and chat with the the bartender or just get some sleep, (my room was quite after 10pm anyway) Will defiantly return if I'm in need of another hostel!
