Finding a bed in Brixton – hotel, hostel, B&B and guest house accommodation guide

Finding a bed in Brixton - hotel, hostel, B&B and guest house accommodation guide

There’s not a great deal of choice available for staying in Brixton, but with the help of posters on our bulletin boardswe’ve compiled this fairly comprehensive list of what’s currently on offer, but if we’ve missed anything, please drop us a line.

If you’re not that fussy where you stay, be sure to check out the online discount hotel sites listed at the bottom of this page as there’s often good last-minute deals to be found.

During the summer vacations Kings College and Camberwell College student accommodation is usually available, generally cheaper than hotels but obviously not so luxurious.

We’d also love to hear your feedback -both good and bad – if you’ve stayed at any of the places listed below.


Premier Inn

Brixton's new Premier Inn turns out to be a purple glowing eyesore, May 2016

UK’s largest hotel chain opened up an 89 room branch in Brixton in June 2016. The website says that prices start from £65, but we’ve rarely seen it dip under a £100/night.  Great location though.

Hootananny Brixton - hostel

Cheap as chips backpacker-style accommodation, with shared rooms, bunk beds and basic facilities. Not the place to stay if you’re looking for peace and quiet as the bedrooms are right above a late night club/live venue.
