Homestay (Host Family) Accommodation

You have made the decision to come to London, one of the most vibrant, exciting and cosmopolitan cities in the world. Why not choose HFS London to arrange for you to stay in host family accommodation?

Host Family accommodation is a high quality, competitively priced alternative to staying in a hotel or hostel. Our Homestay visitors range from individuals to groups of students studying English or professionals on internships. Homestay accommodation is not just restricted to international students or young professionals; it is suitable for anyone coming to London.

By staying with a host family you will not only learn more about our culture, but also have an excellent opportunity to practise your English in an authentic environment. Our host families are experienced in welcoming international visitors into their home. They will help you settle in quickly and support you throughout your stay. English will always be the main language spoken in your Homestay. Living with a British family adds a hugely personal dimension to your visit and experience of London. Many of our guests stay in touch with their host family for a long time thereafter.

Our ethos as an organisation is to provide the highest quality Homestay service to individual guests, international agents and education providers, as well as to our own host families. We will make sure that you make the most of your experience here by placing you within a safe and warm British family environment. Our host families have been carefully selected to English UK and British Council standards. We are always happy to receive feedback and will aim to confirm Homestay bookings within two working days.
