Hey everyone,
Really interested in this years Oktoberfest, with the 6 days Hostel or maybe camping, not to sure yet. I am 23 yr old Aussie and will be traveling solo, so was interested if anybody else will be, or can someone tell me if solo travelers do? Can't wait to experience this!
Thanks
Luke

    Hey Luke,
    This will be my second time in London. I haven’t 100% decided where I’ll be staying yet, but most likely St Christopher’s Inn “The Village” http://www.st-christophers.co.uk/ It’s within walking distance to The Tower and Tower Bridge and a few other cool sites not to mention it’s restaurant and bar

    I’m going on this trip too! My boyfriend and I are doing the hotel option, but it showed you (Luke) in the meetup group…so maybe it’s the same trip? I was in London last summer and stayed at a hostel called Astor Hyde Park, it was close to Hyde Park and the Museum. It was pretty nice, and I believe pretty “economical” – I found it on HostelWorld. I was looking at the St. Christophers, but it had mixed reviews… did you stay there before Sara? We will most likely be in London for 3 days or so before the trip! It’s such a fun city!!! I’m so excited! :-)

    Hey EFade, I have stayed at St Christopher’s The Village and really enjoyed it, it was so close to so many things and was a great atmosphere for a solo traveler. I have stayed in the Astor Hyde Park and it is close to the Museum of Natural History and the park but not much else, mainly pubs and things, and there’s no elevator, I had to walk up a huge amount of stairs to get to my room, normally I prefer the stairs and always appreciate them, but this was excessive and for somebody lugging a backpack, it wasn’t the nicest thing. But it was a good price. A little too mellow for my taste though, as a solo traveller I didn’t meet anybody there to chat with or hang out with. I do love London though and can’t wait to be there again. Perhaps we can meet up as well :)

    Hey EFade, Yeah strange i am in that, cause I booked the Hostel version, nevermind we should all catch up in London for a warm up drink before we depart.
