This quirky bar and upstairs hostel can be found just south of the Thames, located next to the imposing and iconic Shard.
Despite its fantastic location, Dover Castle Hostel has reasonable prices and a laid back atmosphere; perfect for students wanting a great night on a lower budget. The best time to visit this place is at the weekend. At night is when Dover Castle really comes to life with popular hit charts played all night long and deals on drinks to last you all night. What's more is entry is free at this place!
As Dover acts as a bar by day, the floor space is rather small, but with people dancing and enjoying themselves, you wouldn't particularly notice. Some of their 'student deals' include two pints for £6, a great offer that is available throughout the day/week. With Borough station just a 5 minute walk away from Dover Castle, it's easy to get to and from, especially on the weekend at night when the underground runs 24/7.
If partying isn't your thing, or you fancy a chilled night, then you may prefer Dover Castle by day. With the same great prices and a pool table, why not discuss the day over a pint and a game of pool with your friends before having a stroll around the local area? With Dover being a hostel also, staying here can be popular with students and travellers alike. With prices ranging from £15-£21 a night, it's especially cheap for its location, even for a hostel! With its friendly and safe atmosphere with a 24-hour reception, you may even make some friends along the way!
