I'm planning a two or three day stopover in London in early September. My main concern is accommodation for myself (young male adult) for two nights.
Are there any cheap but safe hostels not too far away from Heathrow Airport?
If I was to tour the city for two days, what would be an ideal place to live such that I could catch those hop-on hop-off bus tours?
- By "not too far", I meant close enough such that I can use public transport to commute to/from LHR. To be clear, I'm quite comfortable with commuting.
- My budget is $50-70 per night. In US/Canada, we get motels for these rates and that's what I'm using as a reference. Apologies if I'm completely off.
- "Safe" means avoiding rough neighbourhoods.
- What I'm specifically asking for is what neighbourhoods should I target.
Note: So far, I've looked at Hostelworld, Hostelbookers and YHA.
