some("Great work environment, friendly and kind team, awesome and relaxed management- thanks Kyle!, cool location, workload was fair and distributed evenly amongst the staff members. Enough space in the hostel to have quiet time when needed and great common room to encourage social activity and fun within the hostel. ")

Ellie was a pleasure to be around and get to know. She was willing to do any job that we gave her and was proactive about taking on other tasks. Her strength is admirable, always working hard and having fun at the same time. Thank you for everything! New Cross Inn will be always open for you!

Spent 1,5 months in London. Unforgettable experience!
Mostly because of all the wonderful people I managed to meet. Staff members were like a second family <3
Hostel's location is also good, and you get a plenty of time to explore London:)

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!
