Wombat's is located a very convenient 50m walk from Dock Street Studio, and has got to be one of the best hostels in London. The bar in the basement, Wombar, is a personal favourite of the studio management. Theres table-football, giant jenga, a pool table, a dedicated beer pong table and much more. We can definitely recommend it! They always have an interesting mix of people staying there and are never short of activities for people looking to explore the city.
Located a handy 3 minute walk from the Studio, Premier Inn offers a great balance of comfort and affordabililty. But don't take our word for it, take Lenny Henry's.

Well under a 5 minute walk from the studio, Travelodge is one of the most economic places to stay in the area.

Located a 10 minute walk from the studio, and a 1 minute walk from Aldgate East tube station. QBIC has some very funky rooms, and a frankly excellent breakfast 'all you can eat' buffet. Definitely worth a stay if you're a fan of coffee too: they have a very fancy espresso machine. Also, live music and gigs are sometimes hosted in the downstairs bar area, so it's definitely worth checking out what's on before checking in.
A funky, functional, comfortable hotel, newly built and located directly next to Tower Hill tube station and under a 10 minute walk away from the studio.
