okay, so we're leaving for europe in a week and will be flying into london probably on the 12th. i've been on the internet for some time now, looking at websites and reviews of hostels and still haven't decided where we should stay. i'd like to book our first few nights in london before we leave. anyway, i'd like some recommendations ( or warnings) about any hostels you've been to in london. We're definitely on a budget and i'm looking for the cheaper hostels but also something a little on the quieter side as we won't be partying too much.
also, if you've stayed at any of the st. christophers, astors, journeys hostels or at ashlee house (some of the hostels i'm looking at right now i'd like to hear your opinions. any info or advice would help! there's so many choices and my head feels like it's about to burst.
