Either way, what’s a reasonable amount to pack? How much will they allow me to bring onto trains, etc?

London - A few hours - Need a meeting spots and hostel recommendation

Hello all,

I need help, I am flying in with a friend to LGW at 07:10 on June 24 and we are meeting a friend from a 10:35 flight into London Stansted. We only have a few hours to play before 2 of us have to be back at Stansted to catch a 17:05 flight, while we leave one friend behind in london for a night. The one staying back needs a cheap hostel(advice?) near our meeting point that’s convenient for getting transport to LHR the next day (afternoon).
