i'm going to put it out there. i LOVE hostelbookers.com!
with there new Web 2.0 state of the art website, it makes searching and booking a Hotel or Hostel an absolute breeze. they have now over 100 London venues to choose from , ranging from Apartments to Hotels, guesthouses and Hostels.
a must check out is there review section where you can base your decision on other peoples experiences and perhaps tribulations. and you can even now check out video walkthroughs of a lot of places so you can get a feel for it before you get there.
if you don't have a place to stay in London when you first get there, we absolutely recommend staying in a hostel as you'll get to meet a lot of people who are in the same boat and there to enjoy London as well, so your bound to find a partner in crime or two!
you can use the booking engine above to suss out availability of accommodation on your dates of arrival.
and honestly if you click search now, then sort the venues by RATE then you really can't go wrong with any of the top 6 or 7 hostels.
