London and Paris accomodation
I've found Dover Castle Hostel in London for 80 pounds a week - is that as good as it gets?
The only cheap French place is refusing to answer my emails. Any ideas?
Have you tried Air BnB at all? Might be nice for your mob to have an entire apartment rather than having to put up with a grotty hostel (and a lot of the cheap London ones really are quite revolting!)

I've noticed that - on hostelbooker it says 9 pounds a night and when you go to book it is 40!
We'll be in London Mon 1 October to Monday 8 October (hopefullly!)
And a grotty-looking hostel in London, but at 80 pounds a week we'll overlook the dirty toilets!
Can let you know just how bad they are on our return.
The Dover Hostel in London was cheap. There were small supermarkets nearby and we ate a fair few tv dinners! There was a small kitchen with microwave, oven and stovetop. It was the only communal space in the hostel and was always full.
We had a room right above a bar which played LOUD music until 2am every night. After plenty of polite grizzling on our part we were moved to a room three stories up.....and the roof leaked!
There were only a couple of toilets and showers on each floor, and while we had read reports that they were grotty, we would say they were not that bad. Not as clean as I would keep them, but not the horror story we were expecting. The bunks were old and bendy.
Breakfast of cornflakes and toast was provided. There was free intermittent internet access.
Would we stay there again? If we were there for a week we would and we would request being upstairs. If we were only there for a few nights, we'd stay at the St Paul's Hostel, where we spent one night (but it was more pricey)
