Does anyone know where a good place to stay would be for a 17-yr-old independent traveller going to London? It seems like everything is 18+ or if under 18 requires you to be with an adult! Anyone know of any good hostels that don't have such age restrictions?
I would check out the Ace Hotel (hostel) in West Kensington, London. I stayed there and I think their policy is 16+. I liked the place a lot and will be back there in August!
Yes, I have heard good things about the ACE in Kensington.
I think you can stay in the Astor Hostels as well. I think the minimum age is 16 but you will have to book a private room. It is still fairly inexpensive though. Checkout www.hostelworld.com or www.astorhostels.com. You can always e-mail them and they will respond.
