I moved near to Bermondsey underground station in 2003, but husband lived this area all his life. I think its like any other area, you get good and bad, but if you refer to south bermondsey station, I dont think its got a very good reputation, I would not get out at that station if it was dark to be honest. I read a couple of years ago couple of ladies were attacked when coming out of south bermondsey overground because of the poor lighting and I think they have to walk down this quite alley bit first. I found London bridge to be safer to get out at, more people around. Cant speak for actual area around there really. Just looks a bit quite to me, bit out of the way from place. If you seek local for shops etc, I could suggest Jamaica Road
, Surrey Quays etc. but its pricey so be warned.
