Subject: Re: Super-cheap sleeps in London?

The elusive ultra cheap night in London is still pretty elusive I fear. In central London your best bet are the hostels (go for the International Hostelling affiliated ones)

Once you start moving out of London - for e.g., to Kingston as in one of Sandy's recommendations - then prices fall, but you start paying more money for transport in.

Also check out Loot, THE small ads paper in London. I will not pretend it is common, but you may find a short-term flat share or flat sitting arrangement that works out cheap. You could always place an ad.

From my experience, 35 quid is about as good as it gets in the areas you mention, unless you want to stay somewhere a little more interesting at night.
