Homestay Across The UK

Hosts International is a provider of high-quality London homestay accommodation. We also operate in Bristol, Brighton, Canterbury, Cambridge, Oxford, Manchester, Leicester and Birmingham. Our homestay accommodation with a host family is a competitively-priced alternative to flats or student residences. The company was set up in 1988 and its main function is to provide quality homestay accommodation to visiting foreign students, directly and from colleges and agents.

Our main aim is to ensure that every student is placed in a good host family environment, which we strongly believe leads to a faster improvement in the language and a happier stay. We achieve this by demanding a high standard of homestay accommodation and selecting only the best host families. We aim to ensure that all enquiries and quotes are answered promptly. We also aim to confirm most bookings within eight working hours, helping to make our service more efficient.

We offer three categories of homestay accommodation to suit every need, whether individual or group, student or visiting delegate/business person. Our portfolio also includes numerous house share properties, all chosen specifically with comfort and quality in mind as well as being price-sensitive. We offer our own efficient meet-and-greet service and group transfers by mini bus or coach to and from any London location at competitive prices.

Most of our homestay clients are booked by organisations, such as schools, colleges or universities, or by businesses. However, it is also possible to make individual or group bookings for homestay accommodation directly from anywhere in the world.

Tourists often find that they enjoy homestay accommodation as it gives them the opportunity not only to meet and interact with local people, but also practice and improve their English. Opting for London homestay accommodation can be significantly cheaper than staying in a hotel, leaving more money available for sightseeing and shopping.

Business visitors often find that London homestay accommodation is a pleasant change from the sterility of a hotel room, and in these challenging timescan be an affordable option for small budgets.

Hosts International is also proud to offer a selection of houseshare properties in the fabulous Docklands area of London. These provide a good standard of rooms for short -and long-term students or for professionalswho wish to be independent and self-sufficient in a comfortable accommodation.

Houseshares can accommodate between 4 and 7 students. Shared facilities include a common dining room, lounge with TV, bathroom, kitchen and even a patio with garden in most cases. There are generally 1 to 2 bathrooms per house. Many rooms have their own TVs.
