Hostel Recommendations


I am staying in London for about 6 nights in March and am wanting to stay at a good hostel. I want one in a good location and where I am likely to meet people. I've stayed at the generator hostel near Russel Square before and thought it was really good but was just curious if anyone had anymore suggestions.

Looking forward to hearing from anyone!

If what you liked about 'the Generator' was its leaning towards a cheap 'party' hostel with cheap booze until the small hours, parties,, organised walking tours etc you might look at the St Christophers hostel chain.

They have a cluster of hostels in the London Bridge area, the St Christpher's Village hostel is where all the 'fun' goes on. They have a couple of others including a female only hostel in the vicinity which share the facilities of the Village.

thanks for the suggestion, the generator advertisers itself to be like that but it really wasn't. I just liked it because I made some friends while I was there and because I am going by myself this time I wondered if maybe there was any other top hostel I could try. I'll have a look at the Christophers Inn one, thanks.
