It was an incredible experience. I met new people, I improved my english language and I learnt about London. The staff was excellent and the new and old manager were friendly and comprnesive with me, especialy because my level English it not was the best.

I stayed almost 2 months at the hostel, there was many volunteers so the workload was fair and well distributed. The atmosphere is nice and the team is always hanging out together. The hostel is well connected by bus and trains (zone 2, which won't cost a lot to go to the city center).
The down points is that the hostel is over a pub that has very loud live music every day until late night (ear plugs available) and the wifi provided is terrible, working properly only in the common area in off peak hours. Hope the new management will take care of it soon ;)

Thanks a lot for having me, guys!

My experience working at new cross inn, was great. The new manager Kyle is great and will help any volunteer with pretty much anything, The staff are awesome too!.

Id recommend staying at new cross to pretty much anyone the hours were fair for me i was even able to hold teo other jobs on top of this one.

The only problem with the hostel is the location, it is on top of a noisy bar which can get annoying. But people make the place, and new cross inn for me was a great experience.

I really enjoyed my time at the hostel. Met great people while working there. The shifts aren't that hard and are nicely devided over the week. Kyle, the new manager is making some cool changes to the hostel create more of a travellersvibe. He listens to the input of all the volunteers! Keep up the good work;) And for everyone who's about to travel to London, I would recommend this hostel and area to learn and see more about how Londoners live.

New Cross Inn was my first experience working in an hostel. I didn't know what to expect, but I couldn't be happier for choosing this place. Shifts are well organised and there is still pleanty of time to explore the city. Hostel environment was amazing and I met a lot of great people.
Here you feel appreciated for your good work and the team makes its best to make you feel at home.
