Quiet, cheap hostel room or B&B in London or SE UK?

Can you recommend a quiet, cheap hostel room or B&B in London or SE UK where I can rest for a week and get over jetlag?

I'm flying back to the UK next week and have got horrific jetlag in the past. I'm looking for somewhere to hide and sleep on a backpacker budget.

So looking for a private room that's not noisy with potential for sleeping in the daytime as well as night.

If the surroundings are nice it would be a bonus.

If you can take a couchsurfer and want a bit of cash then let me know as long as it's peaceful.

Afaik, hostelz.com is the only site that gives contact information for the hostel even if you haven't booked any rooms. So you can email them about their lockout policy.

You might want to look here if you want. Prices run from about £15 a night.

I don't know what their policy is on kicking you out for the day, though. You'd have to ask.

Hostels might expect you to share a room and not stay there all day. As it's off season you might get a deal at a hotel or B&B.

I've stayed at the London House Hotel a few of times and it's fairly inexpensive (or at least it used to be, but it's been three years since I last stayed there - almost to the day!), mostly (albeit, not always infallibly) quiet, and located in a good neighbourhood (Kensington Market) with good pubs and restaurants nearby. It's also pretty easy to get to via the Heathrow Express + Tube (Express to Liverpool, tube to Bayswater Station).

Sorry, I also meant to post that you can get single rooms, sometimes with a shower/bathroom inside, and they don't care how long you stay there. It's called a hotel, but it's actually more of a hostel, just with the option of having a room to yourself.
