I like very much SafeStay in Elephant&Castle. I visited many times. The location is great. The hostel is very clean, thanks to the housekeeping team and well-organized, thanks to the reception team. They are all very friendly and kind. I especially enjoyed the restaurant and bar, where is possible to order Czech beers and that's big thanks to Sophie, the restaurant manager.

Hostels. What are they?

Way more than just a cheap place to sleep, hostels are a social way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens or games rooms are great ways to swap tips, tricks and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world. <br><br> Hostels have come a long, long way since the first youth hostel opened in 1912. From budget 'crash-pads' to five-star 'poshtels', today, hostels are for everybody, so whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll find most hostels are cheaper than a local hotel and far more fun.
