London is the bustling capital of the United Kingdom and offers everything and anything one could ever wish for. It is widespread and divided into numerous suburbs, which are all unique in their own way.
London hostels are abundant and you can find accommodation in every area of the city. Nice neighborhoods to stay in include Kensington and Paddington, which both offer a wide range of sleeping options. But really, it does not really make a big difference where your hostel is located since London has a comprehensive public transport system. It is possible to get literally anywhere within a reasonable amount of time.
In general, do not expect hostels in London to be spacious; rooms tend to be on the tiny side and it might be difficult to move around without running into something.
London has three major airports that you might be flying into and countless options to get to the city. It is always a good idea to know which suburb you are heading to in order to figure out which bus or train to take to get there. Get a map of the London tube and ask for assistance at the counter. If you are staying for a couple of days, there are discounted multi-day tickets for the public transport which are good value.
Suggestions for London:
- Save money by buying a London Pass for free entry on attractions, public transit, with a guidebook and other perks.

"At Ashlee House, the reception area is bright and welcoming, with the London tube map as wallpaper and a funky fake-fur sofa. The other communal areas are in the basement, including a tiny chill-out area, kitchen, and internet corner. The lack of space there would hinder any attempt to meet people, especially since the staff do not allow people to hang out in the kitchen, even though the chill-out area is so tiny. The shared bathrooms are...
St. Christopher's Inn - Camden
"The Location St. Christopher's Inn - Camden is located in the very cool alternative area of Camden town, which is packed with bars and restaurants and a number of street markets open daily. The hostel itself is located on top of Belushi's bar -- in fact, the reception is in the bar itself. It is very easily accessible by either the Morningcrescent tube stop or the Camden Town tube stop, both within a two-minute walk. Rooms and...
St Christopher's Inn - London Bridge
"I was there in November 2003. I met some great people (remember Allen Ginsberg's America!), and had some good times. Yes, it's loud until 2:00 a.m., but that's London for you. I've stayed in regular hotels in London on previous trips, and they cost a fortune. The facilities at St. Chris's were very comparable. I'll definitely be returning on my next trip." … "The good points about this place: its location, large rooms, the bars, the...
St. Christopher's Inn - Greenwich
"Good value for such small amount of your money! - Cheap, clean and safe place to stay. perfect location if you're planning to see some event in the nearby O2 arena. rich breakfast. safety lockers under the beds. hot showers, very clean toilets with always enough of toilet paper. above average WiFi. friendly staff. free maps of Greenwich and London. hip-hop parties every Friday. 24/7 light above the room doors. worn out windows and wooden...
St. Christopher's Inn - Village
"Be careful not to confuse St. Christopher's Inn - Village with the St Christopher Inn – London Bridge, which is just up the road. The hostel is promoted as a partying hostel and lives up to the promise, so it's most suited to those who want to participate or with a tolerance for some noise as one bar has loud music until 2 a.m. (and later on weekends). It is difficult to find something wrong with this hostel -- it's a superb backpacker hostel...
St. Christopher's Inn - Orient Espresso / Oasis
"The first thing the weary traveller will do, upon debarking at London Bridge Station and stepping out just yards away from the Orient Espresso's colorful facade (that is, assuming one chooses the Borough High Street exit) is wonder how on earth they're supposed to check in. After trudging down the road to the Village, the administrative center for the three St. Christopher's hostels on this road, and back, one finds that all three are really...
"It's located just down the street from Hyde Park where you can go walk, sit, write, draw and be mesmerized by the greenest grass, bushiest roses, lovers in row boats, bunny rabbits, exotic herons, ducks, swans, puppies and squirrels so tame they will literally pull on your pants leg for a bite of that sandwich! There is a lock out (which can be a bummer if you are exhausted and jet lagged) but you can stow away your pack and head out for a...
Astor Museum Inn
"Astor Museum Inn is a simple but likeable little hostel in the middle of London. It's part of the Astor group of hostels that includes several hostels around London. It's located right in the center of the city, directly across the street from the British Museum (which has free admission by the way and it worth seeing). The door rooms have any number of beds ranging from 4 to 12, with lower prices for rooms with more beds. The beds are...
Astor Victoria Hotel
"Although the bathrooms and rooms leave something to be desired, Astor Victoria Hotel gets the job done. The Location Although it is not necessarily located close to any of the big tourist spots, the hostel is a few blocks away from Victoria Station, a major hub of transportation, which makes getting around fairly easy. The area around the hostel is pretty quite and feels safe. The few blocks between this hostel and Victoria Station are...

It is also located near many bus stops that run all night. Rooms and Bedrooms The eighteen-bed coed room is what you pay for. It is located in the basement next to...
Dover Castle Hostel
"Dover Castle Hostel has a cosy, home-away-from-home atmosphere with a homey living room and kitchen. Most people are long-termers, adding to the house-like atmosphere. They are very welcoming to the short stay travelers. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel. The hostel lacks clean bathroom facilities. The Location The hostel is across from Borough Tube. The Southwark location is good and there are many eating options and a...
St. Christopher's Inn - Shepherd's Bush
"A fabulous hostel experience!!! We stayed here for a week in May/June 2004. The staff could not have been better!!! The rooms were very clean, and a self-service breakfast was included. Other meals were priced the same as pubs in the area, with great food choices. The chill out/chat room was user-friendly, with laundry and Internet services. Also, there was a live Web cam to send photos home from the bar!!! With the last call being at 11...
Generator Hostel London
"Generator Hostel London is not the typical youth hostel -- it has a little twist with its different and colorful design and style.

The Location...

The hostel supplies free linen and blankets, free Wi-Fi, a TV lounge, games room, laundry room, and lockers. Also when you're ready to leave, the very friendly hostel staff will help you book your flight, train, or bus to your next stop. The Location The hostel is located down a small...
London Eye Hostel
"Journey’s Waterloo has a great location -- it's tucked away in a residential area so you get to see that side of London, however, it is less than five blocks from the Underground and less than a five-minute walk to Big Ben. Location We feel it is in a great location, and with such access to the Underground (which is not that expensive) you could really get anywhere in the city. Finding it is quite easy -- you just get off at Lambeth...
The Court Hostel
"The Court Hostel has a sign outside calling it a hotel and the appearance of the entrance is good, so you think you are entering a quality establishment, but after the reception it gets seedier. The staff are businesslike and polite, but do not have that something extra, that interaction that hostelers are used to. Put simply, the place lacks character, is somewhat rundown, and is quite pricey (we paid twice as much as at our previous London...
Smart Camden Hostel
"Smart Camden Inn is halfway between the Mornington Crescent and Camden Town tube stations. During the weekends, Camden Town station gets very busy and is probably best avoided, but if you’re staying in Camden then business is all part of the experience. One gripe is that it operates a fairly arbitrary pricing policy. Those who turn up on the day pay a fixed rate per night whereas those who book in advance can pay less or more than...
Journeys London King's Cross Hostel
"The best asset of this hostel is its location. It's very close to the King's Cross tube station (zone 1 in London), so it's within a short metro ride to anywhere. Journey's King's Cross fares quite well on the value scale as well--not too many options can be found in London for under 15 quid (or as little as 10 quid a day for longer term stays). The hostel has all the basic amenities that the backpackers will expect, but it does lack...
Belsize Park Gardens
"Great time, great women, bad food. ;) How's it going, Carlos?" … "I lived there for three weeks at the end of 2000. The location wasn't so good but I didn't have a problem going anywhere. It's a good hostel but the food wasn't so nice! Good luck, guys!" … "Average - The hostel is well situated, in the North of London, in a rich borough. Moreover there are two Tube stations nearby (Belsize and Swiss Cottage), and also there are...
"Hostel 639 is a convenient place to stay. It is a very cheap hostel and easy to find since it's very close to the subway line. The Location 639 Hostel is located in the northwest of London in front of the Kensal Green subway station. There are supermarkets and pubs close by and also bus lines all day and night long. From London city center it takes approximately thirty minutes by underground. Rooms and Bathrooms There are dorms...
Accommodation London Studios
North West London
"I stayed in the Willesden Green apartments in June of 2004. The apartments are definitely not as colorful as the pictures make them out to be, and the bathroom was a bit cramped. The laundry facility was gross, but there was a nice (and cheaper) laundromat down the street so it wasn't too much trouble. As for the location, it was a bit far removed from anything remotely touristy, but it was a two-minute bus ride/15 minute walk (which one...
HI - YHA London - St Pauls Hostel
"HI - YHA London - St Pauls Hostel is by far the best located hostel in London and easy walking distance from the Millennium Bridge. It is large, clean, and spacious with plenty of opportunities to meet and mingle with fellow travelers. The breakfast is a good value and recommended. The Location London -- well, St Pauls YHA is in the middle of it all and mere steps away from St. Paul's Cathedral. Buses and taxi are the easiest ways to...
"Central Hostel in London is a good budget hostel for those who don't expect a lot of frills, with fun decor and a adequate facilities. It's a memorable stay solely for the awesome wall and door murals featuring London landmarks and superheros. The Location Central Hostel is relatively easy to find from the tube, just walk a few blocks from the Bayswater Station on the Circle Line. Reception is fairly hidden, accessed via a thin...
"I went to Bowden Court for ten days. Showers are a little dirty at times, but it's an ok hostel, I'd stay there again." … "Too expensive. You should take into account that we are students." … "I've been there for almost one year. I've got a lot of friends from different countries. The accommodation is good, good atmosphere but the food has no good seasoning." … "You can live at Bowden Court, but you have to know that you...
Barmy Badger Backpackers
"Barmy Badger Backpackers is not a bad hostel, but not an awesome one either. Earls Court is just a few stops away from major London sites and the night bus makes it super easy to get home from a late night of clubbing. The one major flaw about Barmy is the permanents there. It must be about 80% permanents that stay there, and most are Aussie. Needless to say, they are very cliquey and even put down travelers. Since these people get up...
"Staff are lovely, extremely clean. Not a single cockroach, mice or anything to be seen. Would definitely be back here next time I am in London." … "Stayed at Curzon on and off in June 2004 and looking up the site and seeing the photos of the dear old place made me look forward to staying again this year. Yes it is grubby, noisy and old and situated perfectly, fun to be at and with fantastic staff." … "The hostel staff are really...
HI - YHA London - Oxford Street Hostel
"The overall impression generated by the HI - YHA London - Oxford Street Hostel is a bland one -- the rooms are nothing special. The hostel's location is without a doubt its main selling point. The Location Superbly placed in Soho and just a few minutes from Oxford Street and the underground, the hostel is in the middle of the action. Rooms and Bathrooms Dorms are basic but good, being perfectly comfortable and clean. They make the...
"My stay at Acacia was very pleasant indeed. I found the staff to be both helpful and friendly. The location was excellent and close to everything in London. The rooms were clean and very secure. I would be more than happy to stay again at Acacia." … "My experience was quite good. It was a little shabby, but the staff seemed friendly and helpful, the linens seemed clean, the shower was hot with good pressure, and the breakfast was plain...
HI - YHA London - Thameside Hostel
"It's clean, quiet, secure, and cozy. The staff is more serious, but still very friendly and helpful! If you want a place that is away from the hustle & noise of touristy London, but where the sights are still easily accessible by transit, this is a good place to stay. I highly recommend taking the Underground to the Rotherhithe station and just walking down the road. My friend & I took the path through the canal from Canada Water, which was...
HI - YHA London - St Pancras Hostel
"YHA London St Pancras' location is great, just a few blocks from the underground on a busy avenue. It is pretty safe -- there's a surveillance system and a quite new elevator. Rooms are pretty quiet, there are individual lockers inside the rooms and some more in the basement in case you need to check out and leave your bag there. Breakfast is great. There's a laundry, kitchen, and TV room. The hostel also has internet access although it's...
HI - YHA London - Earl's Court Hostel
"This is the most wonderful hostel ever!!!" … "The staff were very friendly, and it was quite clean. It was close to the Tube station, which is great, and it's on a Tube station that is connected to three important lines so it's even better access to many places. One of these lines is the Picadilly line, which connects straight to Heathrow, which was really practical for me. I hadn't stayed in a hostel before and didn't know what to...
YHA London Holland House
"This hostel has a great setting — right in Holland Park in a beautiful mansion (well, at least part of the hostel is housed in the mansion). It's nearly exactly halfway between the High Street Kensington and the Holland Park Tube stations (less than a 10-minute walk each way). My friend and I stayed in a 12-person room. The beds are good — they even come with individual nightlights so that you can stay up reading or writing after the...
"I stayed here for two nights in September 2005. This place is friendly, clean, and comfortable. The dorm room with four beds had lots of space, an en suite bathroom, and fridge. There's also free Internet in the common area and a spacious kitchen. Location is also excellent (close to the Holborn underground station). The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back." … "We had a triple room which was large, clean,...
No. 8 Willesden Hostel London
"Overall, it was nice - The beds weren't the best, and the location is a little out of the way. But the staff was very friendly, and the bathrooms were the cleanest I've ever seen at a hostel. A good place to stay for a few nights." … "Very bad! - I stayed here from 21 to 27 August 2007 with two friends, when i arrived here i thought that this hostel is very dirty and not safe, is in a zone very dangerous for the people, breakfast not...
Smart Hyde Park View
"I stayed there one week ago. It's nice and close to Hyde Park (100 yards away), and fairly near Queensway, so it's by plenty of restaurants, but over all the living conditions were just the deciding factor. It has the smallest 6-person rooms I have ever seen. I could barely move once I was standing inside of one. Lockers are jammed up between beds. Much of the place is old and antiquated, and they closed up a very poor breakfast 15 minutes...

London Travel Tips & Suggestions
I love London Pubs! Great Ales.
Don't go to London -- street art everywhere and stolen sh*t in the museums! The British are pirates, I tell you!
London is incredible. You should spend at the very least a week there. All the museums are free and the locals are all friendly and willing to help. Getting around is very easy when you use the underground. Go to Brick Lane and have some drinks. Also, for the ladies, go to Canary Wharf around 5 p.m. on a Friday -- there are loads of men at the bars who just got out of work!
— Beverly Barnes-USA
I suggest to go to London for two weeks, visiting not only the central district but also suburban places like Hampstead, Richmond, Wimbledon, and Kew Gardens.
A good way to have a look at the town is to get on a bus.
If you are in London in September you should go to Proms in the Park -- great day out and a chance to see the British at their most patriotic! take your flags and a picnic and some wine.
If you're into the pub/club scene, take some time to visit the East End. Two of the best places I encountered were located there -- Elbow Room (with at least two locations, possibly more) and The Backpacker. Don't forget to check out Brick Lane for amazing, authentic Indian/Pakistani cuisine and great street vendors (be careful not to traverse down random alleys jutting out from Brick Lane, though).
Do the Red Bus trip around London. I gave it a miss because of the cost but someone else I knew did it and loved every second. It seems like it would be a great induction to the city to help give you a feel for where everything is and makes it a good way to pop in and out of some of the tourist attractions that you don't need a lot of time for.
The "Big Red Bus" and "Original Bus" tours are a great way to see London and top sights. Some routes have a live guide and some have recorded conmmentary. Busses are double decker, some with open tops. Pay one price for the day, hop on or off at any stop, Thames river tour included in price.
I suggest spending at least one week in London if it's the first time you go there. The best place in London for those who are keen on history (particularly the XXth century) is the Imperial War Museum on Lambeth Road (metro Lambeth North). The entrance is free. There are permanent exhibitions about the holocaust and "live" experiences of the trenches in the 1st World War or the bombings of London in the 2nd World War. Tanks, aircrafts, and guns are also in the hall. I spent there three days and I suggest it to everyone.
— Davide Santi, Italy, 28 years old
I strongly suggest if going to London that you buy an A-Z book. It is very helpful with traveling the buses and tube stations as well as other attractions to see and places to eat.
Luton airports sometimes have cheaper flights and there is an amazing hotel there called the Red Lion Inn that is super cheap and about a five euro cab ride to the airport or the train station. We took the train from London to Luton and then flew out from there.
If you get a chance day trip into Kingston. It's about a 20 min train ride or only a 5 min ride from Heathrow. It's a beautiful town with lots of pubs on the Thames. Take a cruise down to the Hampton Palace and walkin the huge, beautiful gardens.
Remember that most of the museums here are free, so take advantage of that.
London is a fun, vibrant city with lots to see and do. My advice would be to spend at least a week here, to at least begin to appreciate what London has to offer. Perhaps the only downside is that it is quite expensive - you need to monitor your spending if you're on a budget.
If you like Castles and historic places and are spending a week or more in London and the rest of UK, then get the Great British Heritage pass before you leave home. You save heaps of money. For only around $80-$90 AUS you can get a pass for 15 days that gets you in free everywhere (except for Tower of London which is half price). Considering entry prices at castles and historic properties range from 8 - 15 GB pounds you save a lot. You can use it also at places like Roman Baths museum at Bath and at Stonehenge too. We used it in London for Hampton Court Palace, Kensington palace and Windsor Castle. You can also use it in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
— Vanessa from Sydney
Be sure to take one of the London Walks tours - they're marvelous, cheap, and let you see and learn more about London than you could on your own!
