London has an abundance of great accommodation, but it can be overwhelming when searching for the best. Especially since London is such a big place it is confusing when trying to pick the perfect place to stay in that’s close to what you want to do while your there. So, I have compiled a list of the best hostels in London to stay in and a little bit about what area they are situated in too!
The Dictionary Hostel – East London (Tube stop: Old Street)
Located in East London is one of the trendiest hostels on the scene. Dictionary Hostel is an excellent choice because it’s amongst the thriving East London, which means there is an abundance of great bars, restaurants and things to do! It’s only a 10-minute walk to the famous Brick Lane where you can find the best curry’s and the best food and clothes markets (in my opinion) in London!
Astor Hostel – Hyde Park (Tube stop: South Kensington)
Located in the more fancier part of London is Astor Hyde Park. The building is beautiful, and the facilities are fantastic. I really loved the interior design of this hostel, especially the front room. Astor Hostel also had the best kitchen facilities that I have witnessed in a hostel before. That makes it easy to save a bit of money by making your own meals there because the kitchen is so big! The staff were also very friendly which makes you feel more comfortable especially when you’re staying by yourself. I highly recommend this hostel. It’s also in a great spot if you want to explore the most popular attraction, Buckingham Palace as the hostel is on the other side of Hyde Park!
Clink 78 Hostel – Kings Cross (Tube Stop: Kings Cross)
If you’re looking for a hostel that has great transport links, then staying at Clink 78 is a great option. Kings Cross and St Pancras stations are only a 10-minute walk away. St Pancras is also where you catch the train internationally to the likes of France and Belgium. Kings Cross tube station has great links to central London and north to the likes of Camden. There’s also a lively night scene and a great dance club which regularly hosts some of Londons best DJs that I recommend – Egg. The hostel itself has great facilities and is even set in an old courthouse so inside there is a chill-out zone in an actual old courtroom, it’s really unique!
Wombats city hostel – Tower Hamlets (Tube Stop: Tower Hill)
This hostel is an excellent choice if you’re looking for somewhere central. It’s not far from the best monuments of London and only a walk away from the Thames. The hostel itself is beautifully designed and has great facilities including nice big rooms and a great breakfast.
Generator Hostel – Bloomsbury (Tube Stop: Russel Square)
Set in the beautiful neighbourhood of Bloomsbury, this hostel features a fun environment for any backpacker coming into London. It’s only a walk away from the British Museum and great transport links too. The Generator hostel have a live DJ and free movies! What more you could want out of a hostel?
SoHostel – Soho (Tube Stop: Tottenham Court Road)
Soho is an area famous for the West End shows! This hostel is set in a fabulous location not only for the shows but also the neighbouring Covent Garden, which is another fabulous place in London to check out. The hostel is colourful and is a fun environment to hang out in with friendly staff and comfortable beds!
