Greenwich is a UNESCO World Heritage site, home to 02 longitude and Greenwich Mean Time. The hostel is a stone's throw from the O2 arena and it's also a mere eight-minute train ride from London Bridge or a scenic 30-minute boat ride from Westminster and Big Ben! In other words Greenwich is a great little village within London.
Our rooms are cleaned on a daily basis and range in size from two-bed to eight-bed rooms. We have a high standard of security with swipe card access.
The services we provide include hot showers with free shower gel/shampoo, free hair dryers and free Wi-Fi! We also have satellite TV, a luggage room, live in-house theatre entertainment, a great outside area, a games room and chill-out room, plus no curfew - so you can come and go as you please.
Our friendly staff offer tours and travel products and job agency contacts.
By day, why not take a stroll along the cobbled streets to visit the many museums and the Observatory or walk through London's oldest Royal Park - taking in the boating lake, the deer sanctuary and the stunning views of London from Greenwich hill as you go?
There's also the Cutty Sark, the only remaining tea clipper (boat) in the world - featured on Whiskey and Rum labels everywhere, and markets selling everything from clothes to antiques.
So it's relaxing but if you like to party there's also that option, too! With 52 pubs and restaurants, including Dickens' favourite drinking spot, and 20,000 students, Greenwich by night comes alive with a young and cosmopolitan crowd.
St Christopher's Inn also has a newly refurbished Belushi's bar - with great discounts for hostellers and a theatre upstairs in the loft, hosting world famous premieres. Guests can avail of a 10% discount on food and drink. Great music, great bar, great prices!
Add to that the amazing live music events, great DJs every night of the week and some truly great drinks deals and you guys are sorted!

Great attentive service. It's a little cheaper pricewise as it's far from the Tube, but I literally ate the nightly price in the form of the great and free cereal, toast and juice in the morning.
If you're on a budget, it's hard to go wrong here. The DLR spits you out literally next door at its Greenwich stop from Canon Street or Charing Cross. Or if you're going on late night benders or concerts like I did, the 24 hour buses are reliable and cheap.
There were tons of luggage in the rooms from fellow travellers so I kept my stuff on my bed. But the other guests were extraordinarily respectable and friendly.
Even on the 3rd floor you could hear the music from the Belushi bar downstairs, but they quiet down at a reasonable time. I went to the bar one night, free admission from outside with your key card, and discovered a cool cover band.
Over my 5 nights here, the shower worked only sporadically one morning, and it always alternated between hot and cold on its own.
But this is vastly outweighed by the impressive friendliness of the staff, the free morning breakfasts to eat until you're full, and the price. Recommended!
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
I had booked for our family consisting of 5 members in a dormitory for 8 persons. I presumed that this would mean that the whole room would be for us, as a youth hostel does. It turned out that three other persons would stay in the room. Moreover, the toilet and bathroom was outside the room.
We payed for one night and left the pub... The staff was correct, so I'm not complaining. I have learned my lesson : in a backpackers' facility, you can't stay with a family....
