Prefer a more traditional approach to a city? Then St. Christopher's Inn is the place to be!
Once an original coaching inn, this place has been around since the 1500s. You can't mistake the haunting character that time has draped over the walls of the hostel. Anyone can stay somewhere new and flashy; the cultured ones will opt for an authentic bit of history.
And in keeping with tradition, our downstairs pub offers up pints of ale and fish’n’chips. All guests receive a 25% discount on food at the on-site restaurants, plus great discount deals on drinks. We’ve got great music, a great bar and great prices!
We offer a variety of rooms, from two-bed privates to eight-bed dormitories.
Our historic Inn has everything you could ever possibly need. There’s no curfew. We have 24hr reception, a luggage room and swipe-card security so you never need to worry.
The best of all worlds is the beauty of our trio of St. Christopher's hostels, all set on the same street. Quiet Oasis, the historic Inn and party-central Village; we’ve got everything you could ever possibly need.
Living in London' centre has you walking to the River Thames, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the London Dungeon, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tate Modern Gallery and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. These are the kind of attractions that don't need introduction or explanation and the reasons that thousands of tourists come to London every year; they’re all part of your new neighbourhood. There is also the Borough Market, a traditional fruit and vegetable market that also carries specialty food, seafood and organic/fair trade foods. The weekend crowds are more than enough reason to include this on your must-sees of England's capital. Grab a latte at one of the cosy market-side cafés and watch the world go by.
'An excellent hostel chain that has been making a name for itself over the past few years for its basic but cheap and clean accommodation, friendly service, and all around good times.' - Lonely Planet London 2002
'With the management organising a different entertainment every night (karaoke, sightseeing walks, barbecues and movies) and two sister establishments up the road (one nightclub, one internet café) all offering discounts on food and drink, hostellers have a ready-made social life within 100 yards. Partying as hard as ever .' - London's Daily Telegraph, 28 Jun 2003
‘The staff here seem to go the extra mile.’ - Hostels UK 2001
‘First choice for London.’ - Guide De Routarde 2002
