For the most part East Croydon Station is good. The platforms and entrance are always very clean and the station is attractive. Having shops for food and other basic items can be very handy as there aren't many other shops within a 5 minute radius. However, my only complaint with this station is the ticket machines. I've had countless issues with them. For a while the only main issue was that they couldn't read my card or randomly cancelled transactions. Now the problem has escalated as they cannot accept the new £1 coin! This is frustrating as I usually top up my Oyster card with loose change. Hopefully this changes soon. Otherwise, this is a great station.
