Please consult the official Transport for London travel planner www.tfl.go.uk for step by step directions to the hostel at the time of your travel.
We are located in Zone 1, on Cosser Street a short walk (3 minutes) from Lambeth North Tube Station on the Bakerloo Line.

Notable tourist attractions within walking distance are Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, Downing Street, Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and Waterloo Station.

From Lambeth North Underground to The Steam Engine:
From Lambeth North Station, when you exit the station you will see a large Church, cross the road and walk past it so that it is on your left, you are now on Kennington Rd. Walk about 200 meters and you will see Cosser Street on your right (just behind Days Inn Hotel) (if you get to a set of traffic lights you have gone to far), we are 20 meters down this road on the left.

From Waterloo to Lambeth North Underground
Take the Bakerloo line towards Elephant and Castle to Lambeth North

Located Near

5 min walk or 1 tube stop and you are at London Waterloo Station (Rail, Underground & Bus Services)

15 min walk or a short bus ride to London Bridge, London Tower (show case of the Crown Jewels), and London Walking Bridge

15 min walk or very short bus ride the other way to Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace and of course the London Eye which you can see from the pub.

Easy tube or bus ride into SOHO night life, shopping, and all that downtown has to offer.
