Our nearest station is ‘Island Gardens’ which is located on the DLR line.

Getting to the backpackers from Island Gardens Station:

When you arrive at Island Gardens station, exit the station and turn left walking down the road. If you look up you will see a church steeple that is located on the same road that we are; so that is a good landmark to direct you towards us.
Continue down the road for approximately 150 metres then take the first road on the right called Glenaffric Avenue. We are the last property down this road on the right.
