My name is Jessica and I work for a social hostel booking company called inBed.me (http://inbed.me) that allows you to see who will be at your hostel before you book and connect. We also don't charge a booking fee! :) I've been to London a few times myself and wanted to recommend some of my favorite hostels:
St. Christopher's Inn Village: http://book.inbed.me/london/stchrisvillage/
Clink 78 (former prison and court house!): http://book.inbed.me/london/189383/
Smart Camden Inn (in the funky Camden area): http://book.inbed.me/london/188555/
If you have any questions about hostels or London travel you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
