Situated in the city’s bustling business district, St Christopher’s is surrounded by skyscrapers and is just a 15 minute walk away from famous structures like the Gherkin. At the same time, it’s only a 13 minute stroll from hip Shoreditch, where you can shop for vintage clothing and records in between sampling tantalizing fusion street food at Old Spitalfields Market.
Rooms at St Christopher’s are simple and modern, featuring geometric floor and wall designs as well as Banksy-esque prints. Opt for a sociable dorm if you’re looking to make friends or a private double if having your own space appeals. Either way, you’ll find comfortable beds with soft linens, numerous USB points and complimentary hair dryers. Once you settle into your dorm for the night, close your individual curtain for added privacy.
Prepare for the day ahead with a complimentary breakfast of fruit, toast and jam, washed down with juice and a coffee. Less than a 25 minute walk away from the hostel, explore sights like the bustling Columbia Road Flower Market. After a few hours of strolling round the sights, you’ll no doubt have worked up an appetite. Luckily, St Christopher’s on-site pub offers hearty grub like home-made burgers, pizzas and steak and ale pie. What’s more, as a guest of the hostel, you’ll get a discount on food.
