London Hostels

This map of London shows the location of independent hostels: Part of Independent Hostels UK, the largest network of bunkhouses and hostels in the UK.

Fed up of staying in Youth Hostels affiliated to Hostelling International or the YHA?  Why not try a stay at an independent hostel instead. This map shows that all London’s Independent hostels are situated in the city centre  These central hostels have all the benefits of a youth hostel, but with a more relaxed atmosphere, often with bars, live music, and city tours. Beds are available in private rooms, shared rooms great for 4 or 5 friends, or in larger dormitories. Generally the more beds in the room the less you pay.  Often know as London Backpackers or private hostels, Independent hostels offer up some of the best accommodation for students, travellers or tourists. Just like London Youth hostels, they provide pleasant accommodation for affordable prices. Staying in what amount to cheap private rooms and cheap dormitories, is ideal if you’d rather spend your money in the wide range of shops central London has to offer or visit the iconic tourist attractions. The London Eye, the historic Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and the British Museum which shows arts and antiques from ancient and living cultures all over the world. Central London has lots to offer with shops, restaurants, iconic landmarks and attractions. China Town, the West End theatres, exciting nightlife, and the O2 centre which hosts live music from world famous artists.  Live TV shows, such as Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor; The Brit awards; and Sports, such as wrestling have all been hosted at the O2.  The hostels shown on the map above, in London city centre, are a quick tube ride away from all the major tourist attractions.  City breaks are exciting but not always cheap. Staying in an independent hostel can make your trip affordable, comfortable and friendly, so you will have a great trip, never mind your budget. From a business trip to a family holiday or a weekend away with your mates; no matter what you’re planning, these affordable central hostels are in the perfect location to make your trip fabulous!
