Via Limehouse

Immerse yourself in exciting and edgy East London life when you stay at Via Limehouse. Watch the boats on Limehouse Basin while stopping off at the many riverside pubs. In the evening, head to The Troxy to watch the trendiest performers. Stroll five minutes to Limehouse DLR Station and you can be in Canary Wharf in minutes for food, shops and skyscrapers. Travel a little further and in 20 minutes you can be in hip Shoreditch or at the tasty stalls of Borough Market.

Sleep in a bunk bed in a mixed dorm with four to twelve beds (or a six-bed female only dorm) either with a private bathroom or access to shared facilities. You can also opt for a twin or double for extra privacy. Store your things in the lockers for peace of mind. Make use of the FREE WiFi, grab a snack from the vending machines, chill out in the TV lounge and chat with staff anytime on the 24-hour front desk. You don’t even need to pack a towel as these can be rented at Via Limehouse.


Make your way to Limehouse Basin from Via Limehouse to spot colourful narrow boats and watch the speed boats zoom past. Have a drink in the Charles Dickens’ frequented 500-year-old pub, The Grapes, or pop across the basin to eat in Gordon Ramsay’s gastropub, The Narrow. Learn more about the history of the city in the Museum of London Docklands, or marvel at its present day incarnation in Canary Wharf with its towering buildings and array of shops. The O2 Arena is easy to reach for a night out.

Via Limehouse Reviews

Average Guest Rating: 4.2'Very Good' Based on 55 Hotel Reviews
Younes, Belgian

Nice London hostel, clean, safe, nice area close to city centre and good transport link

Pippa Tooher, British

This is an ok London hostel. Tthe staff make this place. Without the amazing friendly staff it wouldn't be as bearable as it is. The breakfast is extremely sparse and the hours it is served are too limited, especially on the weekend. Also some of the rooms are far too small for the number of beds cramped into them. I think it would have been good to know that folks would be in triple decker bunks before we go to the hotels. The staff however are lovely and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The management are obviously doing a great job of managing the team and this is reflected in the excellent attitudes of their crew. They should be congratulated on this. On the whole I would stay there again provided I was in a room that did not have triple decker bunks

Rye, British

Via Limehouse did the job! The hostel was warm and the decor was pleasant. Breakfast was overpriced for what it was (also: couldn’t find milk for the tea? heartbreaking), and the hostel was a little bit grimy, but I’d have no real qualms about staying there again. 24 hour reception for late check-in was a godsend

Chau, Malaysian

Via Limehouse was clean and ordered, very pleased with the quality of the shower. However, the traffic was too loud in my room

Teresa Kucharczyk, German

Cheap London hostel. Shower and toilets should be cleaned more often, the bed clothes should be controled properly (I had holes in it). All in all ok if you don't have to high standards
