The building is a bit old especially the rooms,but there was a sort of bohemian lyfe style in the living room which I enjoyed a lot. Guests were nice and polite, and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. I would recommend this place!

Floor in the room and the bathroom was very dirty. On the shower was only cold wather. There is only one bathroom on the floor where are 5 rooms to 12 people. But people there were very nice and helpful.

I am sorry to write this, but I was disappointed when at checking in four of five others were helped before, even when they entered later; I felt ignored and not important at all; even after starting filling in the check-in paper, the man behind the bar left me and turned to others. I was not welcomed. Although the building... More

Hostel has good location in London (so close to fast-train; 15 minutes to center of London) and in the house is very good pub (sweet cider and good small foods for little dinner), but bed is not perfect. Rooms are OK.

Bathrooms were foul, there is something wrong with the plumbing so that all showers drain water out onto the floor. This is not that bad, except when theres no hooks so your towel gets soaked and cold by your shower water. It would be about a half day fix for a plumber, or a 5 min fix for some hooks... More

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... More

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... More
