More about Venture Hostel

Located 20 minutes from London’s city centre, this stylish boutique backpacker hostel has an atmosphere bursting with character. Venture Hostel is a walking distance from Greenwich Mean Time and the Meridian Line, and is surrounded by street markets and lively music venues. The nearby Goldsmiths University was home to the 1990’s Britpop movement and Young British Artists movement (with famous alumni including artist Damien Hirst and Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn) and continues to make the area a creative and vibrant destination. The hostel is bright, friendly and recently refurbished, and is housed above The Royal Standard pub, a funky bar with a unique twist. Wi-Fi access is available to all guests and ladies can even enjoy the female dormitory facilities - makeup desks with chairs and mirrors! The fun-loving staff will ensure you have a good time. For an authentic and unique London experience, Venture Hostel is a great choice.

Really awesome and helpful staff - facility doesn't have a proper kitchen though”

For being quite cheap ( I had a bed in the big dorm room) the hostel was okay. The staff was really awesome, and the bar below the dorm also has been pretty good and had fair prices. However, there is no kitchen available, only a small common room with a microwave. Also, the beds (3-person bunk beds) are pretty old and creak everyone one moves a wee bit. All in all for the price the stay was okay, even though it's located far from the city center (deptford, zone 2)

Nice, but far. ”

Good price and offers female dorms. However there was a mix up and they out me in 8 bed female dorm when i had paid for 6 bed female dorm, and they refused to pay back the difference... Room was clean, but had a very bad smell. And bathrooms were fairly clean. Location was good in terms of being near DLR and Overground stations, but a little bit difficult to get to from central London. In conclusion, it was very good value for money and I would stay there again.

Shared bathroom, toilet and shower are on different levels. No lifts and around 3 levels if you got sorted to the top most level. There are curtains at the beds which is great. 8-10 mins walk to different train stations and bus stops which easily connects to the city main sights

Cheap price, cheap service, cheap bedroom”

Cheap price, DLR station nearby, traditional market is around

I arrived there around 20:00 and the receptor was a french girl speaking with a weird accent but she was friendly and effective. I booked a 1/6 bedroom where roomed international students and long-distance worker,but the space was really small and corridor was narrow. Bathroom and kitchen are not really fancy, but you could tell it eas refurbished. There is a bar at groundfloor which is also the place you check in and out at. The atmosphere is quite good. At last, please note that the internet (free-wifi) is at very low speed and youd better be good at memorizing cuz you will have two sets of passcode for doors.
