Staying at a youth hostel near Greenwich

It was the first time I stayed at a youth hostel near Greenwich. £13 per night with satisfying facilities. Not so bad, isn't it? It's going to be my base when I travel to London next time.

(The ground floor, where the reception desk is located, has very high roof. The space on the right hand side is for the bar and computers)

The name of this hostel is London Thameside, which is located 10 minutes walk from Canada Water station for London Tube Jubilee line. Jubilee is a very convenient line connecting central London with East End. It's only 5 minutes walk from Rotherhithe station for London Overground.
I chose six bed room dormitory with two 3-level bed sets. Men and women were separated. Each room has its own toilet and shower. Although there is enough space to leave big luggage, I recommend checking in as early as 3 p.m. to secure the best bed in the lowest level. Using the internet costs 1 quid per 20 minutes, while you would be charged for wifi.

(I liked the green bed sheets and pillow case)

Because the hostel has so many beds, I expected the bar was full of guests. However, there were very few guys drinking beer inside and soon after the clock ticked 11 p.m. the lady at the counter shut the drinking corner without saying anything.
The first hotel which hit on hotel search website was the one in Greenwich towncentre, £40 per night after online discount. I couldn't afford that. Then on the next page, London Thameside came up. I believe the best way to enjoy my trip is to stay at my friends' house or look for somebody providing a couch via online networking site. On the other hand, when I have to book a hotel by myself, around £15 per night is financially sustainable for a student studying abroad.
