Can anyone help me with some CHEAP accommodation? Tourist hostel, B&B - anything would be OK, but I am bit afraid of booking a place online, since I cannot be sure if it's a "nice" place or not.
(Londoners, if you could at least tell me which districts are safe?)
If you want to stay in central London, cheap acommodation is very hard to find. A few years ago I stayed at an official YHA (Youth Hostel Association) hostel near to St Paul's Cathedral. I can't remember how much it cost, but by London standards I know it wasn't too bad. I am sure that if you find the YHA website, you'll be able to get more info.
Another alternative would be to stay in one of the suburbs. I used to live in Bromley in south London. I know that, for example, B&B accommodation there would be far cheaper than anything in central London. It is only about a half-hour train ride from central London. A few years ago I stayed in a B&B in Bromley called Villa St Philamena (I'm not sure on the spelling). It was nothing special, but was clean and in a relatively safe area. Another suburb of south London that is reasonable is Beckenham. You could maybe look in the Yellow Pages (www.yell.com) to see if there are any B&Bs listed. That is also connected by train.
I'm afraid that I don't have any more up-to-date info. If you see somewhere listed that you're not sure about, I may well have heard of it/know what the area's like, so feel free to e-mail me through my profile page.
I hope this helps a little.
