All Star Hostel, Chatsworth Road, London, England NW2 4BL

The cost of living in London can be on the expensive side, especially when you first get there and are still spending your precious local currency. Best advice, for obvious reasons, is to start earning £'s as soon as possible. Accommodation costs vary from area to area with the further outlying areas being cheaper, as a rule of thumb. However, this saving can be dented by the increased travel costs of living less centrally.
