Stayed here with some friends in June. If you're weary about sharing a room with strangers I can honestly tell you it's totally fine. The dorms are gender assigned which made me feel so so safe. It's in a nice area, I didn't see anything bad happen and no rough people seemed to be around. 15 min walk to Oxford... More

This hostel overall was pretty good. It was full when we arrived so we were worried when we only had one shower and bathroom in the hallway. HOWEVER, in the four days we stayed in the hostel we did not have to wait for a shower. There could be more seating downstairs in the dining room and maybe a lounge/music.... More

Room 5 should be avoided at all costs. It has no window and a very noisy 'comfort cooling' system. The room was not meant to be 'en-suite' but it did not even have a washbasin, users are obliged to share the washbasin in the small sit-down toilet with visitors from another room - surprised that this is within EU regulations....

A truly welcoming, friendly, helpful and professionnal team ! Thanks to them, this YHA is a really good address in London ! For example, as soon as we arrived, we were offered to join a free walking tour around the city. Since we were busy in the luggage room, one of the hostesses came to inform us that the group...

This was my first time alone in a hostel, and could not be more happy! The hostel is perfectly located, a few blocks away from a busy tube station, the staff are incredibly patient and friendly, and made up of people from all over the world :) I stayed in a shared room with other 5 people, and was glad...

Great location. I stayed in one of the four-person, en suite dorms (all female), which was affordable without requiring you to traipse down the hall to shower or use the bathroom. The common area was comfortable, as well, and featured a 24-hour mini-cafe. Wi-Fi in lounge only.

The internet was ok but it only works in the lobby. The check in process was kind of a mess and the breakfast is not free but other than that, it was nice. The location is great and the beds have a light and outlet next to all of them and the locker was big enough for all my stuff.

Dear guest, I am really sorry you were not happy with your stay with us. This is not our usual standard and I am sorry for letting you down on this occasion. The bed base was just an interim solution until we have a new bed base made which has been proven to be a long process. I will let... More
