London Eye Hostel One of the best in the city
Why spend a great deal of money on a fancy hotel room when you get the same service at a local hostel? The London Eye Hostel is located directly in the middle of the city on the banks of the River Thames and has been servicing guests for a number of years. Over the years it has made a name for itself for offering some of the cleanest rooms and beds in the city. People are often wary of staying in a hostel simply because they have heard such bad things but this hostel is proving all of those rumours wrong. This hostel is located just five minutes from Lambeth North Underground Station and from there you can get to just about any part of the city you want to and it wont take long either.
As a guest of the hotel you will receive a complimentary continental breakfast each morning. There is also a fully equipped guest kitchen that you can use any time you want to prepare you own food. The hostel does not provide the food in this kitchen but if you have purchased something from one of the nearby corner stores then you are more than welcome to cook it. All that is asked of guests who choose to use the kitchen is that they clean it up so that other people can enjoy a clean kitchen as well. Throughout the day in the main are of the hostel you can enjoy free tea and coffee and at the bar there is a variety of light snacks offered as well.
Located onsite at the London Eye Hostel you will find that there is a billiard table that often attracts a large number of people and often time the games can become competitive. The internet is offered free of charge at this hostel whereas at other hostels in the area guests must pay for this service per day or head to a nearby internet caf if they wish to get in contact with friends and family. There is no parking available but there are a number of car parks nearby that offer reasonable rates for parking. This is a pet free hostel as there is no room to accommodate any sort kennel for a dog or a day. Guests interested in booking a room or a bed at the hostel should also know that this is not a child friendly hostel as there is no room to put a cot or crib in the room and the bunk beds are not always ideal for small children.
While the hostel is very flexible about check in times they are very strict about their cancellation policy. The cancellation policy will vary from room to room but you will need to give at least twenty four hours notice if you wish to cancel you room for the night. When making the reservation for a room or a bed you are asked to give a credit card number and if you do not give adequate notice at the London Eye Hostel you will be charged for one nights stay regardless if you make it there or not.
