  Generator Hostel

The Generator wins the "Funnest Hostel" award (yes, I know "funnest" isn't a word). They have so many activities planned for their guests, you almost don't have to leave!

Unique Qualities: You get a free drink at the bar when you check in. This bar is open 'til 2 a.m. (2 1/2 hrs after London pubs close) and is a good, cheap place to meet other travelers.

Sunday's free afternoon movie was a nice break from sightseeing all day.

Breakfast is included. Beds are surprisingly comfortable, but bathrooms are pretty dingy.
