there are three st. christopher's hostels just down the street from each other on borough high street in southwark, which is south london. it could not be located in a better spot as it is close to the london bridge tube station and the south bank thames tourist sights.
i stayed here in april 2007 for a week. i was in a six person dorm much of the time and then got moved into a four person dorm the last two nights (however, i had that one all to myself!).
the rooms are clean and the bathrooms in the hall are fine. the only downside was there is no place to put your bathroom toiletries down in the shower/sink area. the staff are excellent, very helpful and enthusiastic. there were a lot of young folks there and school groups. belushi's pub was always hopping (although i preferred the neighborhood old historic coach road pubs nearby, like the king's head). i was mostly out and about all over the city, but i really enjoyed a cookout on the small roofdeck on my last night.
if you are a young person (or young at heart) and want to visit london and meet people this is the place to do it! about $20 us per night -- can't beat that!
Unique Quality: nightly activities
meager but free breakfast served
great coffee shop
Directions: between london bridge/borough tube stations
I stayed here with a friend for a little over a week. In general, I was happy with it although the cleaning guy was really rude. St. Christopher's was a short walk from London Bridge Station and also near the London Dungeon. It was also near Southwark Cathedral - take a stroll around inside. The location is excellent and all the people I met here were really nice. Don't expect luxury, but it's a great deal in central London. The bathrooms were a little gross, but just make sure to bring flip flops for the shower and you'll be fine. (It was no worse than the bathrooms in my dorm in college) Be warned that it is above a pub that plays loud music at night, but it wasn't a problem for me. The pubs in London close early, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem. I'm generally a light sleeper, but I guess I was so tired from sightseeing each night that I slept with no problem. Make sure to have a drink in the pub on the ground floor since everyone who worked there was awesome!
