At The Dover Castle Hostel, we aim to provide backpackers and international travellers with an accommodation 'one-stop shop' - offering comfortable dorm beds for short stays and rooms in house shares for longer-staying guests.
Most importantly, our guests have fun! Our friendly staff will advise you and ensure you get the most from London. The best tourist sights are just a short walk away, such as Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral, London Eye and the Tate Modern Gallery. And our own hostel bar and common room means you can party, relax and meet other backpacking guys and gals.
Our flat share agency offers longer term guests private accommodation in furnished houses and apartments. We have affordable single and twin rooms available for guests who want to make London their home.
The Dover Castle Hostel facilities include a free continental breakfast, free welcome drink, 24 hour reception, free WIFI internet, an internet cafe, a fully equipped guest kitchen, lockers for hire, a free luggage room, a cheap laundry service and a guest shop. We can lend guests towels, adaptors and hairdryers for free. We also have a TV lounge and the guest bar. There's no curfew so you can come and go as you please.
At the Dover Castle Hostel and Flatshares Agency we want guests to relax and enjoy London. Our hostel is clean and secure and our international staff are helpful and friendly. We're only a short walk to major tourist sighs, such as Tower Bridge, Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Borough food market, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.
In the Dover Bar you can enjoy various beers and ciders at a discounted guest price all day and night. Also when guests check in to the hostel they are entitled to a free welcome drink at the bar. The Bar offers cheap eats, such as pizzas, chicken wings, and potato wedges. The Bar also has a pool table and juke box and is an awesome place for socializing with other international guests as well as local Londoners. Thursday nights the bar often has live music - so come along and get drinking and dancing!
Our staff will also help guests find their way around London, arrange airport shuttles, taxi services, free walking tours of London, and help guests to find cool places to party in London. Guests at the hostel can also take advantage of our cheaper weekly and seasonal offers and extend their stay.
We also have the Dover Castle Flatshare Agency. For guests wanting to move to London, either to work or study, we can offer great value rooms in house and flat shares. These house and flat shares are located in South East and South West London, zone 2, about 20 minutes by bus to London Bridge. Large single rooms cost £130 per week for a 6 week plus stay and twin rooms cost £80 per week per person - inclusive of bills and Wi-Fi. Priority for the flat shares is given to existing Dover Castle Hostel guests and our staff can arrange a free viewing of available rooms for interested guests during their hostel stay.
