Funky reception
Starting my first week in London.

I'm no fixed abode while I look for some fixed accommodation, so I've booked in at Generator Hostel London. Which despite being the cheapest accom' I could find at short notice seems pretty reasonable, both in terms of cost and facilities.

The hostel has been recently made over and has a funky friendly atmosphere.

Access is off the main street. Guests are asked to keep the noise down at night for the benefit of local residence.

I've found all the staff to be friendly and helpful. Both after I arrived and before when I made enquiries over the phone.

I haven't eaten a lot on site yet as I've been out during the day: working!

Fish and Chips, with mushy peas, set me back six pounds. Not bad, quite tasty.

There are smaller room options, but I went for a bed in one of the "large" dorms.

Sharing with people of all ages, though mostly young, and from all over the world.

So far I've had room mates from: France, Lebanon, Brazil, Thailand, Italy, China and Norway to name but a few.
