Join us at the recently refurbished Great Eastern backpacker hostel. This 1800’s Grade 2 listed building has been converted into a fresh, intimate backpacker hostel above a traditional British pub.
We are proud to show off our beautiful part of London. No, we’re not in the West End and you can’t wake up to the bells of Big Ben (although the boat trip from our doorstep to Big Ben is amazing). We suggest you stay with us if you want a different experience of London than the one you read about in your travel guide. Stay with us if you want to stroll the historic Thames Path or walk under (yes under!) the river to the charming Greenwich settlement. And best of all, we’re located just two minutes from the DLR station, so London centre is just 20 minutes away when you’re ready for some inner-city fun.
If you’ve been to London before, we bet you’ve never seen it from this angle! If it is your first visit to London and you want to see the ‘normal’ sites, we can happily recommend our partner hostels located in the city. Otherwise, dare to be different and visit us at The Great Eastern. You’ll be glad you did!
Are you looking for privacy or new friends? Either way, you’ll feel comfortable. Our newly refurbished rooms are fresh, clean and suitable for both individuals and group accommodation. We offer a variety of dorm rooms including female-only dorms with private en suite, mixed dorms with en suite and mixed dorms with shared bathroom facilities. All rooms are temperature controlled, comfortable, clean and secure with access to multiple bathroom and shower facilities. If lots of sleep is in order, you’ll love our new inner spring mattresses. We searched out the best bunk-sized mattresses on the market to ensure you your sleep’s a good one. Our cleanliness rating is well deserved, as we ensure bedrooms and common areas are well kept and bathroom facilities are cleaned throughout the day to ensure they are fresh 24/7.If you like what you’ve read and wish to book hostel accommodation, use the secure booking engine above. We looking forward to seeing you soon!
