I'm torn over which hostel to stay in while in London. I want to "home base" out of one hostel, and I have seen so many choices. I narrowed it down to St. Christopher's Inn - Southbank. Would this be a good choice? Is there a better one? I want to be near a tube so I can get around easy since I am for the most part a largely inexperienced European traveller.
At first I was thinking of going with Museum Inn or The Generator, but after reading some reviews decided against it.

This was the hostel I stayed in whiile in London. I'd give it a really good recommendation. It's clean, the showers are free, and the staff is really nice there! It's also walking distance from Soho. There's a tube station about 5 blocks east. So that part is covered well. I think they show movies every night or have some kind of special event. They also have Belushi's right there, so if you want a night cap before bed, then you don't even have to get dressed. Just go downstairs! That's all I can think of for now. If there's something I didn't cover in this diatribe, feel free to email me or ask them here. Take care!
Thanks Jenn...I was going through the St. Christopher's Inn guestbook and noticed a lot of people had stayed at the Camden location. It was the Southbank location that you stayed at? Which one would you prefer personally?

I did stay at the Southbank location and would say that I prefer that one since it's only a short tube ride from the center of London and a walk away from some of the best attractions there. But I think in the end it's a matter of preference. I don't know too much about the Camden location.....Kim? Could you fill us on in on that branch of the establishment?
I wanted to stay at the original because well, it's the original and I hear its close to transport like you said Jenn. But those ensuite bathrooms are awfully tempting, and I hear good things about Camden's atmosphere and location as well...
What a choice! Hmm...will have to think on it some more...
