Homeless Hostels

There are quite a few homeless hostels in and around Central London.

Some have an open door policy and will attempt to house someone directly from the streets. Others will only accept referrals from homeless out-reach teams and social services.

You can ring Shelter, on 0808 800 4444 from 8am-midnight, seven days a week, for a list of Homeless Hostels. Shelter will give good advice to anyone over the 'phone and will try to ensure you are directed to somewhere that will provide a bed for the night.

Note any opening hours listed below are subject to change. Phone first for confirmation.
