I am coming to london around July 14 and staying until mid August. Am travelling alone, and wondering which hostels are the best. Location and safety are the most important. Idealy, I would like to stay at two or max. three hostels during the trip. Areas of interest to stay in: Kensington, Bloomsbury (theatre district, shopping), Oxford street. Suggestions? I'm looking at YHA Holland Park, however, availability is limited and the only rooms available are 20 bed dorms. Has anyone stayed in a hostel with this many people in one dorm? How does it feel?
