I stayed at Hotel Earl's Court on a solo trip to London on the way home to Toronto from East Africa. Earl's Court had better rates for single rooms than many hostels in central London. Reading the reviews made me nervous about the stay, but overall I was satisfied.
My single room (no ensuite) cost approximately $50 (Canadian) per night (175 pounds for 5 nights). The hotel is in West Kensington one minute's walk from the Earl's Court subway station, which is KEY. This station is on the border between Zone 1 and Zone 2 of the transit system, so its as far out as you can go while still only paying the Zone 1 price. This helps save on your weekly travelcard cost. It is on a main road and with your windows open in the summer months (no a/c) it can be noisy. The mattress was uncomfortable. The room has a sink and mirror but is very small. The sheets and towel were clean and the room itself, while certainly worn, was clean. The bathroom was down the hall and tolerable, but not "nice", separate toilet room was fine.
They include breakfast, which consists of toast, cereal and tea/coffee. Friendly staff.
FREE wireless internet! (quite fast connection)
Overall, great value/location for a budget traveller who isn't too picky.
