#hostelworld is a company located in London, which they do not make clearly
known or evident on the site. There is NO CONTACT information other than a
street address in London, and they charge a 17% NON-REFUNDABLE "deposit",
that gets converted to British pounds currency, so if the dollar is weaker
in relation to the British Pound, you end up paying more in US dollars when
your account - credit card is debited, than it shows as your total on the
website when you pay, due to the currency difference. If there is a
problem, THEY HAVE NO EMAIL ADRESS AND NO PHONE NUMBER TO CONTACT THEM.
When you are booking your room, the advertising says there is "no booking
fee" and that you "may cancel at any time up to 2 days prior to arrival, at
no charge". These are both lies, since they charge the 17% "deposit" which
you find out after paying is non-refundable, so you ARE paying their
booking fee, which is 17% and the cost to cancel is forfeiture of the 17%
deposit, which contradicts their claim that you can cancel at any time "at
no charge". The cost to cancel is 17%.
They also do not disclose until after you pay, sales tax is due ON TOP of
the amount shown as the room rate you *think* you are getting. BEWARE of

advertising practices are deceptive and if there is a problem, you can't
even call or email them, you can only write a letter and MAIL it through
the post office!
This is a really unethical slimy way to do business. BUYER BEWARE!

Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben = shit of
interest only to the gormless. Plenty of good stuff in London, but that
tourist tat isn't it.

All good suggestions. My 11th Thing? Embrace the train. As great as
London is, there are a number of other nearby great places that can be done
as day trips out of London via train - I've even gone as far as Cardiff,
Wales and Paris as day trips out of London on the high speed routes. Just
make sure you start out at the correct train station.

Excellent video! I could really use all this information and I like the way
it was structured easy to follow and entertaining!

Personally I think London is a bit too touristy. If you want to go
somewhere like it but not as big and with fewer people, I suggest going to
Hertford. I would also recommend going to the southwest and staying in
Devon or Cornwall and seeing Dartmoor and going to the beach, but avoid the
traffic and high costs of Stonehenge. It used to be good before it was a
world heritage site, but now you can't go near the actual stones and it
costs an arm and a leg. It's also nice in Wales if you want to go there,
but it's a bit of a drive from London.

Love the video. Will be there next spring, spending the day before going
onto Germany, and really looking forward to it. The Golden Hind isn't too
far from St Pancras....so we may have to go check that out. I thought
about getting an oyster card, but only there for one day. So I'm thinking a
one day pass would be better?
Thanks for the video! Lots of good information.
