Peter Knox, British

This was the first time I had used Journeys Greenwich Hostel. I arrived quite late about 11:15. The check in was very easy and friendly. The room was securely locked with a key code. The room was a 12 bed dorm and very clean and quite spacious. All the bedding was very clean as was the rest of the hostel. I had a good night's sleep although getting in and out of the middle bunk of three was a logistical challenge! The breakfast was basic but enough. It was well presented and again everything was clean and tidy. The member of staff on breakfast duty was friendly and helpful. In conclusion the hostel was great value for a safe sojourn in London and gave you a good start to the day. I would and already have, recommended it to a variety of people

My friends and I spent 2 nights in Journeys Greenwich West Hotel. I had been to many other hostels before and have to say, this one is one of the best. The friendliest staff Ive ever met. The place is clean and safe, we got free safety lockers. The kitchen was cleaned every morning and was well equipped. As we stayed there during the weekend, we had free Sunday lunch. Great. They had a fantastic chill-out lounge and there was a bar downstairs. The only drawback was the location, quite far from the centre of London, but you can get there easily by tube from New Cross tube station or by bus. The Greenwich area is pretty nice too.
