Best London hostels for mature tourist?

I must spent 2 - weeks in London between ships because I can't fly, for health reasons (ruptured eardrum). I notice in reviews that a lot of London hostels are over crowded with semi - permanent workers (I'm glad they have a place to sleep). Does anyone know of a hostel that has true tourists and can accommodate a 57 year old? I also must be very cost conscious. Thanks!

I noticed that you posted in a few different forums, but not the London local forum board. I'm guessing the locals would be more familiar with the local accommodations.

I see your point and I'll do that. I wonder how many London locals stay at London hostels, though.Thank you for your response. I appreciate it.

The local forum is not designed for locals only - it's just the place with the most information about any one city and usually there are "Destination Experts" who know a lot, as well. For example, hotel recommendations are often listed in the local boards.

I see that now and have already had a reponse. Thanks again, though you did say locals would be more familiar with local accommodations, which confused me. I really appreciate your advice. Thank you and wish me luck!

First, Transatlantical - please take your post down. Listing your personal email, even if it's a disposable one, is not recommended on TripAdvisor. This is a public forum and spammers and other bad people will visit these boards looking to add you to spam mail lists.

To take your post down, click "Report inappropriate content" then click "remove my post".

If you want to reach another post, this can be done within TripAdvisor by clicking their screen name (in blue) and sending them a message (see the envelope icon).

Now, as for Post #6 - this is advertising and I've reported it.

I'm doing all this from a smartphone and don't see any of the options you mention. Oh, God. Now what?
