Z Hotel

Clean cut lines have gained something of a tarnished reputation in recent years. They’ve become a byline for second rate hotels and half-assed efforts, a “stylish” way of covering up a lack of effort and investment.

Phoenix Hostel

There are plenty of great hostels in London. The days of the drab, sad old things dominating every youthful backpackers life are over. It’s easy to find somewhere outstanding to stay with a little searching. That’s why the Phoenix hostel might not seem spectacular at first. It offers clean and
