On the pages listed below, we bring you some of the best London Hostels in a list of recommended areas of London. Budget hostels have long been a popular choice for those seeking cheap, good value accommodation. They are also a good place to meet fellow travellers and of course provide the perfect place to lay your hippy hat.
If you've never stayed in a private or student hostel before, you might like to read this rather excellent review of the ever popular Generator Hostel London by one of our former interns Kiernan Maletsky. We sent the up-for-it young hack from Colorado, U.S.A. on an undercover mission to get a feel for what our readers get out of hostel accommodation in London. He travelled extensively around Europe staying in hostels while in the course of his time with us, so we consider his witty observations ring truer than the regular sales puff you've come to expect on some other travel sites. We hope you find it useful too.
