Yha London Central is perfectly situated 5-7 mins away from Oxford Street and Oxford circus tube station on one side and great portland tube station on the other side. Connectivity with Underground and buses is very good. The Hostel has a very good common area /reception and a decent sized kitchen. Rooms were clean and tidy and staff very helpful.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 6 bed female dorm. The room was basic but clean and the bed comfortable. I liked that there was a light and plug socket by every bed, unlike other hostels I have stayed in. There was a small sink in the room but it was impossible to use without soaking the floor as...

The staff: friendly and helpful. The rooms: spacious and clean (6 bed, female dorm). Common area: fun and spacious with plenty of sights and activities advertised. Hot meals and licensed. Location: on a quiet street and only a 2 minute walk from a Great Portland Street tube station. Internet: had to pay for use of computers (expensive) and wi-fi (I... More

The location is amazing - just a short walk to Oxford St,. or Great Portland St. The staff are lovely, and incredibly helpful. BUT given that I was told by three different people that this was a 'purpose built hostel', there were several things they really should have done differently: 1) The place is five stories (plus a basement), and...

It's more than good price for low-budget like us to stay in London, great location 8 mins walking to oxford street, some decent restaurant around and 24/7 supermarket nearby, heat working good while it's -4degrees outside. It's just about luck to share with the room with other backpackers, like we encountered some talking in their sleeps and reckless party people... More

The location is STELLAR. Close to the tube stations. Kind of goes quiet when things start to close up, so not much night life right there. You had to pay for the wifi - REALLY? AND you couldn't even use it in your room. I mean, I feel like that was a little extreme. Wasn't a huge fan of their... More

quiet and nice hostel. Was clean, safe, and in a safe area. Very convenient for visiting sites as it is a 5 minute walk to the tube (circle line which goes to all the main sites). You can also walk to Camden from here which has some good restaurants, pubs, markets, and a lively mix of people. Large common area.... More

We stayed at the hostel as a school group. The teachers were put in rooms in the basement, where there was not much light nor space and was very noisy. The rooms had no ensuite, so the one toilet and shower had to be shared with the whole floor, which led to long waits and didn't make for hygienic conditions.... More

Hostel situated at strategic location in London Central, walking distance to most of the tourist attraction in the city - worth the pennies paid for during the peak times. However a certain things didn't satisfy me when I was there ultimately was the service at the frontdesk, as backpackers we are so used to have warm friendly services; however when... More

I slept there well, staff was friendly and helpful, I had some coffee and snack at reception bar. Internet was fast, location easy to fine, just walking straight from the tube. If I need to stay in London again I will use YHA for sure. It's best to pay a bit more for comfortablet bed and nice bathrooms.
