I stayed at this hostel for 5 nights in July 2014 in a 6 person room on the first floor. I'd recommend looking at another hostel based on location, spotty wifi access, and lack of toilets/showers - This hostel is located just on the northern outskirts of central london so don't be fooled by the name, it's pretty far walk...

I love staying at YHA hostels. They feel like a middle-class hotel for a really good price! At all times I feel save at YHA hostels and it's so easy to meet new people. In particular I liked the private showers and bathrooms and the lounge in this hostel.

We stayed 4 nights at the YHA. I chose this place because of the location and because there was an option of a private bathroom. It was also very reasonably priced for what you get in London. This place wasn't huge but it was big enough for 3 girls, we booked a 4 person room with a private bathroom. When... More

This hostel has a great location but thats about it. Better to stay at the generator hostel and take the metro. The staff is good and the rooms are clean, yet everything is else is a disaster. The lack of opening windows and AC meant we slept at 27*C. The WIFi is only for the lobby and you have to... More

Traveled to London with a group of students. Have nothing but good things to say. The staff did everything to accommodate my group. Everything from getting us in our rooms early to storing bags for us on the last day. The hostel was clean and well maintained. Three underground stations within walking distance(Great Portland Street, Oxford Circus, and Regent Park).... More

We had a great few days at this brilliant hostel. Spotlessly clean and well maintained, great location and facilities, fantastic atmosphere, lots of info on things to do, organised activities, and above all, very professional friendly staff who were always happy to help. Thanks to everyone at London Central for a brilliant stay, hope to be back soon!

We were a group of 4 friends and stayed in a private quadruple with private bathroom. For this kind a room in London, we found this good solution. Not so expensive and good enough to sleep and rest for 3 nights in London. It had a small bathroom, with shower included in the bunk bed bedroom.

This hostel is in a great part of London, moments from Oxford Street. The staff are friendly, it's very clean, as cheap as chips and the rooms are small bit adequate. Only improvement would be privacy curtains on the bunks, as with up to 8 people sharing a room, everyone rises at different times. All in all though, a great... More

First the positive -location was pretty good. Kitchen was handy. What to watch out for: - tiny rooms, I was in a four bedder and we were basically tripping over each other -not fun. - bathroom was tiny with a terrible shower that leaked all over the bathroom floor. It was so tiny you also couldn't avoid the waterstream and... More
