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.


thanks

My default hostel in London is Astor's Hyde Park - not the cleanest or most luxurious, but the bar in the basement is excellent and I've never had a problem meeting people there whether traveling solo or with friends. The staff has always been great to me, and they're nicely located if the Bayswater/Notting Hill/Hyde Park area appeals to you. I'm a bit more emotionally attached to that 'hood since I lived there as a kid, so I'm obviously biased

i lived at the astors lienster inn in bayswater for around 4 months. free breakfast, cool bar and pretty central. also stayed at st christophers inn in shepherds bush, and at the Village tower bridge-this one is better. both have a bar attached and free brekky and well positioned for transport. the village also has a hot tub.
