Default 48 hours in London.

i will be in london for two nights only this july (9th+10th) and i want to make the most of my time there and see as much as possible.

i arrive at 5am on a flight from oz and i notice that most hostels dont allow check in until around 2pm. so im going to be tired and dirty from the long flight. lol.

can anyone suggest a good hostel? it needs to be easy to get to from the tube. im thinking about the generator, has anyone stayed there?

i obviously want to see the tourist things like buckingham palace, piccadilly circus, big ben....anything else i should see?

i also want to go clubbing one night. how can i find out if there are any good dj's playing when im there?

thanks in advance!

When it comes to hostels I have no idea but I hear people talk about the Generator so try there maybe? Travel Punk has a page for hostel searching though which should be a good help.
Your list seems great in fact the only thing I would add is perhaps getting a drink and seeing the live shows at Covent Garden. Its not just music either-one time I went and they had this guy escaping from chains and jugglers and people who will do portraits it can be quite the experience!

Hi, sirensounds. Are you back from your trip? Where did you stay? I will also be going to London in August.
