My 14 Favorite Hostels in London in 2019

Posted: 2/18/2019 | February 18th, 2019 London is one of my recent favorite cities in the world. I always liked London but it wasn’t until I spent a few weeks there last summer that I fell in love with London. I didn’t want to leave.

It’s directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, a founding member of the Bike Shed club in London and the possessor of an unfeasibly large Rolodex.
