O’Callaghan’s Backpackers Hostel
If you are looking for a small and quirky place to stay just keep a look out for the yellow door to find O’Callaghans. With only 30 beds, it also has the honor of being the oldest of all the hostels in London.
Opened in the 1940’s, this little place has a lot of personality, from the free pint or shot when you check-in to the fact that everyone is in such close quarters you can’t help but become family.
Located very close to the Earl’s Court Station, the neighborhood offers a wide variety of stores, pubs and restaurants. Be aware that O’Callaghans has an age limit of between 18 – 30, but if you are just over be sure to give them a ring.
