Best if you take the DLR train from Bank station(Underground)From abroad ,if Arriving By Euro Star train.Assuming you come from King Cross, St.Pancreas Station. Venture Hostel may not be your Ideal Hostel to your liking. But for some wanting a week end break or just a couple of days during the week, it may be not bad for you ?...

Have you ever wondered when is a good time to visit London? Why not make it here over Christmas? Let me tell you my experience. I came just before Christmas and stayed until the last day of the year but one. I had not anticipated that London could change so much. I have been to London at very different times...

No real complaints. Host was fantastically warm/welcoming, couldn't have asked for much more. Only slight complaint is that one of the toilets blocked, the rest of the cubicles were fine. So no harm..

The hostel was pretty all right. Price is cheap for London and the staffs were friendly. The drawback was the place is that it is located around downtown. I don't feel safe walking around at night. My roommates are nice and friendly though some of the guys are a bit creepy.

I made the right choice staying here during my travel with friends. The staffs were friendly and helpful. Since it was my first time in the city, they showed me what was interesting about the city.

I stayed here to fill in a gap between moving out of one flat into another. There were a few hostels in the area but this one happened to have the best price for an all female room on short notice.

Stayed here for 1 night for the price your paying you can't complain room was clean just the showers were cramped not much space in them to get changed and only 4 showers between everyone could do with a revamp of shower area or a place to dry yourself down and get changed.

Deptford is more than you think! There is history to the place which I find interesting. Perhaps it reflects what London has gone through in other parts, and the changes are still continuing. Once upon a time there were about thirty pubs on the High Street. Hard to believe when you see what is left of the good old days...
