Free linen

Recently renovated, 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 for you if you need us, we have also taken great care when it comes to your safety & security so you don't need to worry and can chill in our bar or relax in the lounge and watch the latest game.

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 do believe that a happy guest needs a good breakfast, which is why we offer a full continental breakfast for only £4.50 and you will start your day full of energy! 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, 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, take a spin on the London Eye or spot Kate and William at Buckingham Palace, all this and more with the tube from Swiss Cottage Station just around the corner!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Palmer's Lodge is your home away from home. The staff are friendly & helpful. Everything you need is in the one location (such as wifi internet, breakfast, bathrooms, bar etc).
There is always someone (another traveller) to chat to in the chill out room, kitchen/dining room or bar, so if you are traveling alone, you will never be lonely.
The privacy curtains surrounding the bed is fantastic & should be a mandatory requirement at any hostel! It's a hostel that I would stay in again.
