Stopped over for a night. Nice friendly staff, fairly busy so nice buzz about the lounge bar bit. Website says there's a bike locker but there isn't. Space for a few bikes in the office though so it's all good. I would message or call ahead if you're bringing a bike. Facilities and rooms were nice and tidy, no ovens... More

Stayed here for three nights, was put in a 4 bed dorm (although had booked 6) but this didn't really matter to me. Staff were friendly and explained things to me well. Very clean rooms and my room had ensuite which was also clean. WiFi was only available in communal areas which was a little annoying. This hostel also had... More

The staff was friendly, the facilities were clean, and the cafe in the lobby was very convenient. Private toilets and showers are a big plus too. The hostel was located close to the Oxford Circus tube station, which provides easy access to all the tourist locations. One huge con though: wifi is only available in the lobby area. So most...

The hostel is in a convenient location, easy to find from Great Portland Street Underground Station (if you check a map in advance so you know where you are going). 5 minute walk. Check in at reception was unprofessional, with staff more interested in a personal conversation between themselves than checking me in, although the staff when I left the... More

My husband, 11 year old daughter and I stayed the night here on Bank Holiday Monday for one night as part of a birthday treat trip into London. We are YHA members and so got an extra £3 each off the room price which was allready a bargain at under £90 for a private en - suite family room with... More

Stayed in 3 hostels in London during my last visit, and YHA London Central was my favorite! The facilities are very clean and modern. I stayed in a 6 person room. Beds and bedding look new and each bed has their own locker cabinet thing. Kitchen was very clean and I was able to store my food in the fridge.... More

Clean and decent, if institutional-feeling somewhat. Friendly staff. Tons of people flowing through this place, so it's a little impersonal, but all worked out well. The ensuite bath in the four-woman room worked all right, but the shower design meant the floor would be wet for the next person, even if she wasn't going to shower, and there were no... More

I have stayed in many hostels in London but YHA Central is by far the best in London as per location, facilities, staff and cleanliness. Though, Wifi is not reachable in rooms but it is still cool as you can sit with other people in bar and access to net. I would totally recommend it!
