It’s easy to forget when you stay at our Swiss Cottage boutique hostel that there is a vibrant city just outside waiting for you. We are two minutes away from the Underground (London’s underground metro system and called the Tube by the locals) so you can be in any of London’s hotspots within minutes!

If it’s shopping that you are looking for, the Tube will take you directly from Swiss Cottage Station to the centre of Oxford Street, or you can shop ‘til you drop at Europe’s largest shopping centre Westfield.

You could also have a drink or two in Leicester Square, take a spin on the London Eye or spot Kate and William at Buckingham Palace, all this and more with the Tube from Swiss Cottage Underground Station, just around the corner and minutes from your hostel!


Please note that bookings for the night of the 31st December will be subject to a non-refundable/no-cancellation policy. We will charge the amount of that night to the credit card you supply when making the reservation and that payment will be taken in advance.
