Please help me decide between these London hostels

Jump to last reply

Thanks in advance for your help -- for this message and also undoubtedly more questions over the next few weeks. :-)

My daughter and I are trying to plan a trip to UK this fall, centered around college/uni visits. We've been to London before and this will be a "snug budget" trip, so sightseeing is secondary; we'll only have about one full free day anyhow, by the time you consider travel to and from the city

We're pretty basic people, love staying in hostels, happy living out of backpacks (she's never checked a piece of luggage in her life), and comfortable with public transit. But I'd also be a mom traveling with a teen daughter, so I'd rather avoid mixed gender dorms or big-time partying hostels.

We think we've narrowed our choices to these three hostels but we're hoping you can share your thoughts on them. We're trying to keep costs as low as possible, and again, not planning on much sight-seeing. We like both sides of the Thames in the Westminster/London Bridge area and have no real goals other than visiting Borough Market, seeing Big Ben and just soaking up the atmosphere of it all.

YHA St. Paul's -- 36 Carter Lane, near Blackfriars
cost: $66.88/night for 2 people in a 4- to 6-bed female dorm
pros: least expensive, free WiFi, safe quiet neighborhood (I think?)
cons: breakfast would be $16/more extra for two people (could we buy breakfast for 2, for less than that, nearby?), 67% rating on tripadvisor

Clink78 -- 78 King's Cross Rd. near Percy Circus
cost: $81.92/night for 2 people in a 6-bed female dorm
pros: free WiFi, free breakfast, near KGX, cool history
cons: sketchy neighborhood? (we were at KGX a couple years ago and not thrilled, but we didn't venture far from the station so I'm not sure how fair that impression is), 54% rating on tripadvisor

The Walrus -- 172 Westminster Bridge Rd. near Waterloo train station
cost: $86.82/night for 2 people in a female dorm
pros: near Big Ben, London Eye, 89% rating on tripadvisor
cons: bar with hostel (may be noisy)
