Safestay London Elephant & Castle

Gallery | Facilities | Local Information

Safestay at Elephant & Castle is based in John Smith House, which dates back to the 18th Century. More recently, the building was the Labour Party headquarters and the backdrop to many election time news reports as people hurried to and from stormy political meetings. In October 2010, planning permission was given to turn the building into Safestay, offering a new benchmark for budget accommodation in London. And being so close to the big London tourist attractions what better place is there?

Finding us is easy

Safestay at Elephant & Castle is in Southwark, two minutes walk from Elephant & Castle underground station, just south of London's River Thames and in one of the oldest parts of the city. Charles Dickens, Charlie Chaplin and even William Shakespeare all lived nearby once upon a time. Now close to The Shard, one of Western Europe's tallest building.

Safestay at Elephant & Castle is an ideal choice if you're looking for a hostel in London, budget accommodation or just a fantastic short break in London that won't break the bank. We're also really close to the main London tourist attractions, like London Bridge and Borough Market.

* Our Continental Breakfast Buffet is now charged at £4.00pp


From the Elephant & Castle underground station, take the Northern Line exit or Shopping Centre exit. Turn left out of the station. Then turn left again at the roundabout onto Walworth Road. Go under the bridge for another 400 metres and you'll see us on the right, opposite the Cuming Museum.
