For the serious shoppers out there, Oxford Street is just a tube ride away and Europe’s largest shopping centre, Westfield, is just one of the many more options for a great day out.

1. Proud to be Green and Sustainable
Palmers Lodge Swiss Cottage is proud to be green and they boast a whole range of environment friendly, energy efficient solutions.
Their efforts have wowed Trip Advisor and in return they have been awarded with the Green Leaders Silver level.
Why I hear you ask?
Light bulbs have been replaced with LED energy savers, recycling bins can be found in every corridor and common area and only toiletries with organic ingredients are used.
Not only that, but water restrictors have been installed on showers – it won’t decrease your shower time, it simple requires a push of the button for continued water flow and will help reduce water wastage.
Just with this little improvement, they are able to save dozens of liters of water every day!
This hostel also practices towel and linen re-use during your stay and the best part is that your bed will be ready made for you upon arrival, you know, just in case you’re feeling a bit tired after your travels.
For the green-fingered travellers; soya milk is available with the buffet breakfast.
