About Journey's Greenwich
You arrive earlier than 2 PM and if we are unable to check you in, we can store your luggage for FREE giving you the opportunity to explore the local area of Deptford and Greenwich. If you are too tired to explore we can accommodate you in our bar or chill-out room until you can check-in.
If you are arriving later than 11.30PM (weekdays) or 1.30AM (weekends), you will need to notify us of your arrival time by phone (0044 20 8639 6219) or email (Deptford@stayjourneys.com)).
Another bonus of staying with us is that we offer a FREE Sunday Lunch to all our guests. This is either a traditional Roast or Jamaican and West Indian Extravaganza created by our superb property owner Yvonne.
Deptford has a rich navel and creative history, like the St. Nicolas Church which has two skulls with laurel wreathes on crossed bones displaying the message that death is not final and that it can lead to everlasting life, this inspired local privateers sailing from Deptford to adopt them for their pirate flags so (now you know). Sir Francis Drake sailed from Deptford on his round the world trips and let us not forget one of Deptford's great locals Christopher Marlowe, whom rumour has it was Shakespeare. Then there is the one that Shakespeare stole the idea of Hamlet amongst a few other pieces of great work, this area is the most vibrant artistic and musical scene in London.
Recently we have undertaken a full refurbishment, our hostel is brand new, and all of our rooms are light and airy, with the key difference being that all the rooms are significantly bigger and more spacious than those provided by other hostels in London are). We have 2 brand new fully-equipped kitchens, new bathrooms (with HOT showers) and 24 hour access to the building.
In addition, to ensure you can make the most out of your stay with us, we also have laundry facilities, experienced local staff who can recommend the best sites of London to see, and FREE WI-FI.
