For those travelling to the festival from further afield and who require accommodation, below are some recommendations for hostels to book for the weekend - though you may want to investigate further for yourselves. 

It is sometimes possible to secure discounts when booking for a large group, so if you’re coming with friends it's worth looking into a group booking.

St. Christopher’s Village, Waterloo

Prime Backpackers, Angel

Astor Museum Inn, Bloomsbury 

We recommend organising this as soon as possible, to make sure that you can secure rooms before they become fully booked. We also recommend avoiding the absolute cheapest hostels in London, as these can often be unsafe.

Anyone who is finding it exceptionally difficult to secure accommodation for the weekend in London, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will do everything we can to help out.
