Rude staff. Unattentive and unhelpful.

Staff were unattentive and rude. Yes i understand i am paying 18 pounds for a bed, however i am still a paying customer and don't deserve to be spoken down to. He had his phone on the desk and was flicking through facebook, i asked for towel hire and he said that there wasn't any available. I then enquired about a locker and he asked "is it urgent, we are in the middle of checking out 100 people". His manner was abrupt and rude and there was 2 people in the foyer, another guy and myself. He took my deposit and gave me a locker key, only to proveed back to flicking through his facebook - (the 100 people he was in the middle of checking out). I definately wont stay here again.

Under construction

Pros: The staff were lovely and friendly!
Cons: Should be allowed more then one nutella at breakfast.
Location: Location is pretty good, but if you want to head into London everyday, be prepared to spend a bit on your Oyster Card.
I had a pretty good stay at Venture Tanner's hill, however, the pub down stairs was undergoing a renovation and was therefore out of service. This also mean that the reception was crammed into a corner of a landing in the building. Because of this renovation the place felt a bit uncomfortable. But I understand why. The rooms, toilets, and showers were cleaned every day! Which is incredible. I never felt like the place was dirty or unclean in anyway. Overall I did have a good stay, and once the pub is finished down stairs I would happily return to stay again!

A good place to stay if you're on a tight budget

Pros: Included breakfast with a decent range of bread, spread, cereals, eggs and juice.
Cons: Clearer communication about the allocation of beds (hard to get it right when arriving very late at night and entering the room quietly)
Location: 10 minute walk to Overground railstation
A very communal experience, large dorm room and shared showers/toilets on a separate floor. But the experience was ok, still good value for the money we paid.

Decent value

Pros: Clean rooms, inexpensive.
Cons: Staff vary from awesome to indifferent depending who's on. Kitchen is very small and you'll be fighting for space in the fridge most of the time.
Location: Not much, catching the London Underground into town every day will add up - I was spending around 20 quid every two or three days.
I'll start by saying I picked this place based on price alone, and for what you pay for it's fine if you're planning to be out and about most of the day and just crashing there at night (and being a hostel, I imagine that's what most of you will be doing).
