Visited YHA St Pauls With my childrens choir (aged 8-13) and leaders. Staff was very helpful in advance, both with obvious room questions and with booking of tickets for sights around London. Saved us from booking each sights tickets on Our own. Also bought tickets for underground/bus at the reception - again it saved us time. People in reception was... More

I stayed St YHA St Paul's hostel as I was down in London for my birthday. Firstly, the hostel is in a great location, with St Paul's underground station being a 5 minute walk away. It is also only 10 minutes from the Tate Modern museum and the South Bank. The service from the hostel staff was very good, and... More

The location of this hostel was very close to St Pauls cathedral which was great... Unless you wanted to sleep! The blessed clock continues to chime every 15 minutes throughout the night, seemingly louder in the room than outside! The beds were unusual, with wooden sides which felt a bit like sleeping in a coffin. I was in a single... More

Hi Lauren, Thanks for taking the time to review us. As we are so close to St Pauls Cathedral the bells are audible in some of our rooms but for some guests its just part of the stay and experience of such an iconic location. Its great that our showers lived up to your expectations. I apologise that you were... More

The hostel is run very professionally and has catered for most things you could require. Given the price it is in a slightly higher price bracket than some hostels but I would say it just about warrants the price. Room was simple but sufficient with unusual but comfy beds. Great communal restaurant/bar with Sky Tv. Really good alcohol selection from... More

We spent 3 nights here recently. We arrived fairly early in the morning from our flight feeling rather jetlagged, tired and keen for a shower. We were informed immediately that check-in was not until 2pm and were handed a code for the luggage room. After 5 hours of walking around London wanting nothing more than our room we returned to...

Hi Amanda, Thank you for taking the time to review YHA London St Pauls. Although I appreciate the fact your flight arrived early in the morning our check in time is in line with other hotels/hostels in London. This allows us time to clean the rooms prior to new guests arriving. I can assure you that when rooms are available... More

Overall we had a good time in the hostel. It is a large YHA chain hostel, but lacks personal touch in my opinion. It receives variety type of guests from solo backpackers, via , families, students groups. Most travelers seems to be focused on their own activities ( not a party type of hostel). Common area was nice; dinning space... More

Hi Cezaryfree, Many thanks for taking the time to review YHA St Pauls. Im really pleased you found us to be clean which is one of the main factors guests take into consideration when booking.

Pros -Strategic location, 5 mins walk to the tube stations. -Friendly staffs. -Spacious rooms Cons -There was only 1 plug point in a room with 6 people, so everyone had to take turn to charge their electronic devices. -There is no elevator, so I had to drag/carry my luggages up/down the stairs. -A little noisy at night -Only 1 shower...

Hi LOveFaith, Thanks for taking the time to review YHA St Pauls. With regard to the plug point and elevator, YHA London St Pauls dates back to the 1800s and is steeped in history. The hostel is classed as a listed building so some things are beyond our control. As you see from many of the reviews on Tripadvisor we... More

This hostel provides a friendly atmosphere for every visitor. Although these places are meant to be for young people , also grown ups may enjoy it. It is full of respect, the service is good. For £6 they serve a healthy buffet breakfast and if you want, you may ask for a lunch to take away. The only observation is... More
