Hostels London City Centre West End

Extending through Bloomsbury to St Pancras, home of Eurostar trains to Paris


West End Theatre - Victoria Palalce Theatre London

Nightlife: a typical West End theatre

Hostels in the West End of London are at the very heart of London. The West End of London is the theatre and entertainment district of London.


It is also of course one of the most expensive area of London to find accommodation in London. Be ready to pay a price premium for a backpacker hostel in this part of London.


The geographical centre of London is Trafalgar Square, that is from where all road distances to London are measured. For the leisure visitor it is the surrounding mile or so that contains much of what most leisure visitors come to London for.


Just north of Trafalgar Square is the main theatre and central restaurant district centred around Leicester Square and Covent Garden. Here are most of the West End Theatres and the major film premières happen at Leicester Square. It is the area many tourists come in the evening to be entertained, eat and people watch.


The YHA (Youth Hostel Association) hostels dominate what is available in terms of hostel accommodation in this area.

The YHA has three hostels in some of the finest central locations in London off Oxford Street, London's main shopping street, in the heart of the City of London by St Paul's Cathedral and another opposite Regents Park, one of London's large Royal Parks.


On the fringes of the very centre of London is Bloomsbury, the book district of London, the British Museum is located here in a very atmospheric part of London. You can walk to Covent Garden and Leicester Square in just a few minutes and there are a couple of options here.


Most hostels are just outside the centre of London. The menu choices on the left of the page will link you to cheaper districts.


The backpacker hostels located in this part of Central London have no curfews and most offer a wide choice of different size dormitories and the option of private rooms too.

Many will have female only dormitories. Most include breakfast in the overnight rate.
