Hi there,

Going to London on the 30th,1st and 2nd of Nov/Dec this year, I am wanting a cheap/free place to stay for these nights :) If anyone has any suggestions I would be greatly appreciative!

Luke :)

Piccadilly's Backpackers is quite cheap and central but I didn't like it when I stayed there. Beds weren't too stable and no lockers in the rooms and communal showers with only a sheet of plastic as a 'door' and you hang your stuff outside. At least I didn't like the last bit as a girl but we survived.

I recently stayed at St Christophers (the Hammersmith) one and I was satisfied. It was very cheap and the facility was acceptable to me.

Hi lukep,

Honestly speaking, if you want somewhere cheap, what you most likely get be a poorly condition accommodation. Had that before, paid £6.50 per night (weekdays) and £9.50 (weekends) per night and it was unimaginable. It was ............... , ............. ,................ and my body was always itchy during the week i was there with them (not that i didn't shower). But then again, it was cheap. After that, i kind of made a vow to *treat myself better*. I think the range between £14-£18 per person (in shared dorms) is reasonable in London and will give you a decent one . On weekends will cost bit more.

if you get in early, you can book super cheap rooms at
we got rooms in london for 16 pounds each, private with bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities... well worth looking into.
