London is a VERY expensive place to stay for travellers. For this hostel, as long as you go with the right expectation, you'll be very happy. We stayed in a 6 people bedroom with private bathroom and shower. Room including in-room bathroom and shower stall were clean. Bunk beds were also comfortable. There are some issues with the shower stall.... More

Sitting on the toilet, testing the seat and looking at the bathroom is something that we actually do so it is unfortunate that this happened to you. We will be checking this issue very closely.

An intricate maze of hidden user fees await any guest at this hostel. Are you ready to be charged for every single thing but the stairs and lift? If so, your eyes are now open to the fact that their sister YHA property in Manchester was cooperative and had free wifi available, towels, continental breakfast included, but not here. $11... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to review the hostel. I am sorry that you felt that there were 'hidden fees' for services while staying with us. All YHA's offer free wifi to YHA/Hostelling International members. A one year membership costs as little as £7.50 and with it you will receive not only the wifi but discount on every... More

We stay at YHA in a private room for 4 people. Everything was clean and the bathroom was also very good. The shower was powerful and the water was indeed hot!

Very beautiful place! Wonderful staff and wonderful location,food and breakfast were great as well! Only bad thing was the fact that you need to pay 1 pound for 20-minute wifi use,that's robbery. So,if you're not an internet geek you'll have a good time! I'll probably visit again.
