Hi, people

I want to go to London next week, but I don't know any cheap hostels.
And I don't want luxury rooms , I just need a bed and a bathroom.
I prefer a hostel near Soho, because I want to visit Footpatrol.
And are Offspring and Niketown near Footpatrol?
What are the prices of the hostels?

And what is the cheapest way to get in Soho from Stansted airport???
The metro maybe?? Which line??

I need answers please!!!

get the stansted express to liverpool street - around £13 each way
almost all the trainer shops are in the centre of town - have a search on here for addresses
offspring and niketown size footpatrol slammin kicks are all close together

all the kicks at those places you can get anywhere on the net, for kicks you'll never find online check Sports N Things in Streatham, take the rail there. They have so much old shit.

www.ish.org.uk

dirt cheap and clean and stuff. i think during the week its 12pds a night?
its in great portland st. either quick walk or one stop to soho.

also cheapest way to get in from stansted is on a bus. just go outside to where the coach buses are and find one thats NOT national express and it will be like 8pds. once you get to central london- either liverpool street or victoria you can tube anywhere.

Man when I was in London I had a hard time finding Foot Patrol. I gave up after a while and ended up finding it by accident after having lunch one day.

True it's a tough spot if you don't know where you're headed but the crew have always been sound IMO.
