I have one from their cheaper polycarbonate series, and found it big enough for a 4 day business trip, if you don't need to take a second suit with you. For anything...
YHA London Central. Very close to Oxford Circus, not too sure about the nightlife though, but it is relatively new and great value for money.

Swimming in the winter late in the evening outside is really nice, the water from the pool is steaming from the cold air. Membership is around 80 EUR per month, but it also includes cardio gear, weights, squash courts, a climbing wall and some 200 courses per week, which I never use.
