A hulking presence behind Piccadilly Circus, Backpackers is a brilliant, basic, cosmopolitan hostel with several floors of accommodation and all the facilities a young adventurer could need – a travel shop, laundry, internet café and TV lounge. The bright, airy feel of the place is helped along by teams of graphic art students from all over the world, who are recruited to lend their artistic expertise to the decoration of public areas and the dorms of pod beds (with individual reading lights).
