Quiet, clean, family friendly hostels near central locations in london

Jump to last reply

Hi--a friend and I have decided to travel together, taking our teens (my two boys, her two girls) to London/Paris/Amsterdam for roughly two weeks in August of 2011. Both families have done organized tours before, but this will be the first time for both of us to strike out on our own as adults. I grew up in the "backpack" generation and traveled informally, staying in hostels, during my college years (30 years ago). This time we'd like to do a lower budget trip to give the kids a flavor for that type of travel, within limits. I've been looking over hostel sites in London. Can anyone recommend a clean, quiet hostel that's conveniently located in London with family room accommodations? We'd need two rooms that each sleep at least three. Her girls are older, but my teen boys are still fairly young, and I would be VERY uncomfortable sending them off to a male dorm alone. If this doesn't work, we're willing to do hotels. I just thought it would be different and fun for them. The London part of the trip will be about 5 days.

Any other ideas for a trip to London with teens would be great.
