Swiss Cottage boasts not only a fantastic London city location and building but our services are unbeatable! We have a 24 hour reception so you can be assured we are always there when you need us, you can meet other like-minded travellers downstairs at Swiss Bar - taking advantage of our selections of drinks and snacks.
An added bonus is that beds are pre-made and come with linen all for free, so the late arriving lodger can jump straight into bed, or the bar! We also offer free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel so you can stay in touch with the rest of the world and explore what's on in London!
It is easy to forget when you stay at Swiss Cottage that there is a vibrant city just outside waiting for you! We are close to the underground (tube to the locals) so you can be in any of London's hotspots within minutes! If it's shopping you're looking for, the tube will take you directly from Swiss Cottage Station to the centre of Oxford Street (15 mins) or you can shop till you drop at Europe's largest shopping centre Westfield. You could also have a drink or two in Leicester Square (15 mins) take a spin on the London Eye (20 mins) or spot Kate and William at Buckingham Palace (10 mins) all this and more with the tube from Swiss Cottage Station or Finchley Road only 200 metres away!
