Well worth the money spent

Pros: - Cheap - En-suit was decent size - Seemed to have a good vibe
Cons: - Smallish bunk-heights - I was in the front-most room and the noise was a bit annoying from people out the front and traffic... just wear ear plugs!
Location: - Easy access to DRL and buses
Via Limehouse was exceptionally cheap compared to other places I was looking at, so I was a little wary at first after booking. Upon arrival it was easy to check-in. I booked a 4 bed room, but it was actually a 6 bed with only 4 beds ever in use so that was fine. Room was a bit cramped, but honestly for the price paid it was workable. No real issues to be honest though - you get what you pay for and I believe for what I paid I got a fantastic deal. If you want a 3+ star place, be prepared to spend 10 or 20 times more... this place is exceptionally affordable and has good access to London.

Excellent location. Awesome staff.

Pros: A great location, comfortable bunks and cheerful, helpful staff.
Location: All of London is within easy access with the Limehouse subway station 5 minutes walk away. A short walk to the Thames walkway and numerous cafes etc.
We had a few problems with our booking but the managers sorted it out and made us feel very welcome.
