SoHostel is London's newest and most central hostel for travellers seeking comfortable but affordable accommodation in the heart of the action. The hostel is owned and managed by One Housing, a large not-for-profit organisation that houses and cares for thousands of people across London and the South East. Opened in November 2104 following a major refurbishment, we offer stylish, clean and secure accommodation for single travellers, couples and groups. As well as bright, contemporary decor with a fun feel, we have a spacious bar-lounge and large reception area for you to relax, meet up with friends and make new ones! Breakfast is available on-site along with 24 hour vending for your midnight cravings. We offer free basic wifi in our ground floor common areas and in-room wi-fi is being installed in February 2015. We also have washing and drying laundry facilities for guests and 3D video projection in our lounge for special events. Most importantly of all, we're right in the middle of Soho - home to some of London's best restaurants, bars, nightclubs, cinemas and music venues. We have great shopping on our doorstep too with Oxford Street around the corner and Covent Garden just over 10 minutes' walk away. Why spend your holiday time and hard-earned cash on tubes, buses and taxis when you can stay in the heart of the action! When you sleep at SoHostel you're also helping homeless people have a safe and secure night's sleep too because our profits are used to help and support residents at Arlington, the famous hostel for homeless people in Camden.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.

I stayed 4 nights in a mixed dorm for 18 people. The location is excellent, being around 5 squares to a tube (subway or underground metro) station. Just the last few meters near the hotel seem a little dangerous because of the active night life,...More
