You'll have 24 hour access to the world famous city. With our friendly atmosphere there's always fun and interesting people to meet and exchange travel stories with.

Another advantage of this prime location is that we're only a short walk away from some of London's most famous tourist attractions, including the British Museum, Oxford Street and Soho .

If you plan to visit the attractions of London, save yourself time and money by purchasing your attraction tickets right from our reception. With up to 20% off gate prices on attractions like Madame Tussaud's, Tower Of London, London Eye and The London Dungeon, you'll enjoy them even more as almost all of them are FastTrack Tickets - jumping you right to the head of the queue. That can save you up to three hours at every attraction. And if you'd prefer to visit the theatre, we can arrange the best tickets for you at great prices for any show in London.
In order to reduce the waiting time for showers we have put all our showers in one place. This has solved the problem of queuing as there is always a shower available for you to use, with hot water 24hrs a day. There are also changing rooms with free lockers you can use while you're showering.
Security is something we take very seriously, to ensure that you and your belonging are secure. We have 24hr reception and high tech key-card system that allows you to just wave your key at your door to get in. And if you would like to use a locker, we can program your key to operate that too. Lockers are located under the Pod Beds so you'll never be far from your belongings. We also have Security Officers operating at night on the door and 24hr CCTV to ensure that the hostel is as safe as possible.
