HostelBookers, a UK-based company offering accommodation on a budget, is aiming to offer inexpensive accommodation in London for the Queen’s Jubilee weekend.
The Diamond Jubilee of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II will include two bank holidays on June 4 and 5, 2012, and many people are intending to take a longer holiday during the period. Most hotels in the UK are already overbooked and hotel prices have peaked for the weekend. Hostel accommodation may not readily spring to mind with many would-be visitors, but it can provide a cost effective means of being at the heart of the festivities.
The company is offering accommodation at Palmers Lodge-Swiss Cottage, located in a restored Victorian Grade II listed building in London, for prices commencing at £24 per person per night. The hostel is offering complimentary Internet, Wi-Fi and daily breakfast. The accommodation also offers amenities including a bar and restaurant; a TV lounge; and a laundry room.
The company is also offering apartments in Kensington West, with Queen’s Jubilee weekend prices commencing at £52.50 per person, per night.
Accommodation at Surprise Backpackers includes clean dormitories with complimentary Wi-Fi, lockers and daily breakfast and is available for the Queen’s Jubilee weekend, for prices commencing at £36 per person, per night.

In addition, Travel Joy Hostels, located close to Chelsea Bridge, is offering rooms with complimentary Wi-Fi and continental breakfast, for prices that commence from £32 per person, per night.
