Police are yet to make any arrests in connection with the attacks.
Officers were initially told of one man being stabbed near North Greenwich bus station at 2am, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

"Four other victims, all male, aged late teens/early 20s, were also suffering stab wounds.
"Three were taken to an east London hospital, the other two to a south London hospital.
"Inquiries into the circumstances of the incident are ongoing. There have been no arrests at this time."
All five are black.
It was not yet clear whether the injuries were sustained as a result of a fight within the group or whether anyone else was involved, a police source added.
