About St. Christopher's Inn - Southbank

The best of all worlds is the beauty of Southwark’s trio of St. Christopher’s hostel locations. Quiet Oasis, the historic Inn and party central Village; has everything you could ever possibly need. Living in London’ centre has you walking to the River Thames, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the London Dungeon, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tate Modern Gallery and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. The kind of attractions that don’t need introduction or explanation and the reasons that thousands of tourists come to London every year are all part of your new neighbourhood. There is also the Borough Market, a traditional fruit and vegetable market that also carries specialty food, seafood and organic/fair trade foods. The weekend crowds are more than enough reason to include this on your must sees of England’s capital. Grab a latte at one of the cosy market side cafes and watch the world go by.

No matter which hostel you’re checking into, reception is at the Village. This is the hub site of the street, with chill-out room with Cinema, internet and comfy couches – available to all staying at Southwark hostels.

“…an excellent hostel chain that has been making a name for itself over the past few years for its basic but cheap and clean accommodation, friendly service, and all around good times.”
Lonely Planet London 2002

“With the management organising a different entertainment every night (karaoke, sight seeing walks, barbecues, and movies) and two sister establishments up the road (one nigh club, one internet cafe) all offering discounts on food and drink, hostellers have a ready-made social life within 100 yards…Partying as hard as ever'.
28 Jun 2003 London’s Daily Telegraph
