Help! I Need Some Cheap London Accommodation

Help I need London accommodation ASAP

Booking accommodation in London can be overwhelming. At HostelBookers we have around 100 cheap London hotels starting at €14.40pppn and 100 hostels starting at just €8.39pppn too, so although that means you’re sure to find some accommodation to suit, it also means there’s a lot of choice.

I’ve narrowed it down a bit here, and if you have any more questions just let me know if the comments box below, or on the HostelBookers Facebook page, and we’ll be happy to help…

1. Where should I book my hostel in London?

London is a huge place so depending on what you’re coming here for, you should try and stay around there. Or at least within easy Underground distance. There are some really beautiful areas in London, but of course these will also be more expensive. If you stay just down the road you might get a better deal. Check out our guide to London’s hostels or promise yourself to the Underground and just book a cheap hotel in London asap.

The Generator Hostel in Russell Square is great for parties – the bar is open until 2am every night and they have regular themed parties in there.

Or you could try the Clink78 Hostel in Kings Cross (below). They’ve got a brilliant, newly-refurbished bar in there. I went to the opening party and, pheweeeee. Let’s just say the next day at work was a tad embarrassing 🙂 (I got a bit carried away)
