Hi everyone! After seeing the location of various Easyhoteles in London, I opted for the one near Victoria Station and I think it was a great choice in terms of neighborhood and ease of transportation. It is 5 minutes walk from Victoria Station and 20-25 from Big Ben. It's a quiet and safe neighborhood (near many embassies) and there are several restaurants and a Sainsburys (grocery store) on a nearby street. My friend and I chose the "standard room with window" for a price of 185 pounds (at that time). The room is adequate if you are going there to sleep and bathe. The bed was as big as I expected and everything seemed clean. The bathroom is a bit tight, but good enough. Regarding the soundproofing of the room, I have to say that we never heard outrageous noise or voices, something which is crucial to get good rest. After the youth hostels, it is of the cheaper options you can find in downtown London and as long as you go prepared, so I recommend it. Clients: Young couples, friends travelling, and backpackers of various nationalities. Other accommodations where I've been: Nh Harrington Hall, Grosvenor Kensington Hotel, Bryanston Court Hotel, Picadilly Backpaper Hostel.
The hotel chain Travelodge is one of the most respectable in the United Kingdom, and if you look at the website before traveling, say between 2 months and 15 days before you go, you can find very good deals. As you can see, the rooms at the Travelodge Central Leicester are spacious and comfortable. All of them have a private bathroom, the bed is large and there is a sofa bed in the room if you have two or three children, or four friends, all of them can stay in the same room. In Leicester, I paid 32 pounds a night and made a reservation a couple of weeks in advance. If you don't reserve ahead it's 50 pounds, which is still a good deal for such a central location. You are just off High Street, the main street in Leicester with all the businesses, and five minutes away from the bus station. The train is a little further away, fifteen minutes but there are no direct buses. At the Travelodge website, you can reserve a dinner, which costs £ 8, and breakfast. It's not the best food in the world, but it's convenient because the restaurants in small towns tend to close rather early.
It is not the best choice to stay in London in regard to value. The only good thing about this hotel would be its location, but it is not enough to see with different eyes. I spent a couple of nights in late July for work, but that's no reason for the service to not be good. The three stars of London are like they are here in Spain. Everything was very old and the cleanliness of the rooms left a lot to be desired. The rooms were quite simple, with just enough space to sleep and little else. I heard a couple complain that they had bugs in their room. Luckily mine was not invaded. Everything, absolutely everything, that had carpet was dirty. In addition, there was a small amount of food with very little variety (advertised as a continental breakfast). The price is another drawback. Between 80 and 120 pounds, one should pass for the quality they offer.
It is located in Bloomsbury, near the British Museum and Regent Park. Very close to the metro station is Russell Square. If you walk a little more, you will be in Soho, Chinatown, Times Square, Piccadilly. As I said, it's the only good thing. And if it was solely to sleep, it would be fine, but the price ... Alongside all this, the hotel is huge and there are thousands and thousands of people everywhere, complaining. And, despite this, the service is very poor and it seems as if they had given up and only have half the staff required. ((Sorry about the quality of the photos, they are mobile because I did not bring a camera, but I think they help a little to see how the place is)) There are other facilities like a swimming pool, gym and bowling alley nearby. They have special prices, which are affordable for customers.
This is a backpackers hostel with a good atmosphere, and is situated in the center of Edinburgh Queensferry Street. It is open 24 hours a day so you will not have to worry if you leave and come back late. If you arrive to the city and what a provisional place to stay, as do many Erasmus students, the hostel offers a weekly rate of 55 pounds. Then prices vary according to how many people share the room with you, between 20 and 12 pounds per night. It is a five minute walk from the train station, and on a flat road, no hills to climb, which there are many of in the city. The price includes sheets and blankets, but they do not provide towels. Below are some common rooms with TV, a computer with internet, and a laundry service. It also has a bar open until quite late at night, but you can´t usually hear the noise from the rooms.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Edinburgh, then I recommend that you book Castle Rock. It's a Scottish backpackers hostel located just behind Edinburgh Castle and three minutes from the main street Lawnmarket, where there are plenty of souvenir shops, restaurants and where, along it, there are several monuments and sights. Castle Rock has a great atmosphere and a lot of young travelers stop by. The main room, the larger one, and the smaller ones are cheaper. This hotel has more than 14 to 16 beds for about 12 pounds per night (about 13 euros). The room is quite spacious, so you do not get the feeling of being crowded or cramped because people tend to respect the fact that they're sharing a room. The only drawback is that the bathrooms are mixed, and sometimes it's a little inconvenient to have to shave in front of strangers. The hostel also has a kitchen where you can prepare food you've brought from abroad, and breakfast is included in the price per night (although those traveling from hostel Solais know that they aren't very good, as they're only a cup of cocoa, coffee or tea). The best part of this hostel is that it has two rooms, a small one with a DJ station, and another huge one where guests (from all over the world) gather to play pool, different games, play the guitar, read, etc. The decor is another aspect of the hostel that draws a lot of attention because it seems like you're actually staying in a castle, because there is even a statue of a soldier there(at night it's a little scary). The staff is very kind, they're all young people from around the world: American, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, etc. If you love Edinburgh and if you want to stay there, it's possible you can survive here for the same price or better as anywhere else.
The Rutland Hotel is a hotel in the West End, a former Edinburgh slum that is currently becoming a fashionable area. Prices are high, about 200 pounds per night, but the rooms are incredible.

When you enter the room, you are welcomed with muffins and water bottles, more commonplace in the UK, a kettle and some tea bags or coffee. The rooms have been upgraded and now include a place to put your iPod and play your music. You are in a great location, whether it be for business or tourism, are a five minute walk from the castle and the historic UNESCO World Heritage site, and Princes is one of the streets where it is easiest to take a taxi.

This B & B is just outside the historic center of York (outside the city wall) but are neither are more than a 5 minute walk.
