Hi Kath,
I agree with Mary. I've been to London several times and here are a few budget hotels that I stayed in:
  • Travelodge London Docklands - in the Canary Wharf neighborhood and close to O2 arena
  • Tavistock Hotel - close to Russell Square Underground station and a 10 minute walk to the British Museum
  • Studios @82 at 82 Ebury part of B+B Belgravia - close to Victoria Coach Station. I stayed at Studios @82 and B+B Belgravia. B+B Belgravia is slightly more expensive
  • The Georgian House - slightly more expensive than all the above and close to Victoria Station. Recommended if you're a Harry Potter fan. There's a Wizard Chamber in this hotel.

I assume you're not thinking of visiting London in the near future, for obvious reasons.
The vast majority of the most popular sights and sites in London are in Zones 1 and 2 of the official Tube map:

London is a hugely expensive city and, of course, hotels and hostels within those two zones are generally more expensive than those further out of the city centre. But if you stay further out you'll have to use public transport to travel in and out of the centre (and that's certainly not cheap).
No-one can possibly predict which hotels in London (or anywhere else) will still be 'budget' or even still exist when this crisis is over. But, assuming things do return to normal, look at these UK budget hotel chains (all are clean, comfortable enough and absolutely fine to use):
https://www.travelodge.co.uk/uk/london/index.html

https://www.easyhotel.com/hotels/united-kingdom/london

https://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/greater-london.html
https://ibis.accor.com/gb/city/hotels-london-v2352.shtml
https://www.motel-one.com/en/hotels/london/
https://www.ihg.com/holidayinnexpress/destinations/gb/en/united-kingdom/london-hotels
and also use the long-established and reliable www.booking.com to see what chain and non-chain hotels are offering for your specific dates.
Booking.com's descriptions and mapping are excellent and you can filter your search by price, location, landmark etc. Most importantly,  reviews can only be posted by people who booked through the site and completed their stay. For the past 10+ years I've used booking.com for my hotels in the UK and abroad several times a year. Every hotel has been exactly as I expected from its site information and reviews.
