An excellent place to stay. The staff are helpful. the room clean and airy, interesting area of London; Breakfast is nothing to write home about though; plentiful, but the cooked breakfast isn't kept hot; I waited for a fresh tray of tinned tomatoes to be brought out, but they were only warm.

Beautiful building in an amazing location. You can't order food when there are groups in and there is no self catering, most evenings I was there it was not possible to eat there. Not very convenient especially as there is no means of finding out exactly when the kitchen will be closed (you get different answers from the kitchen and... More

Hi Harvey Nobum, Thank you for taking the time to review us at St Pauls. I was disappointed to hear about your experience with the kitchen team and this is something I will investigate. We serve our Menu every evening between 5pm and 8.30. If we have a large group dining with us we do offer the menu however there... More

I stayed for 4 nights in an 8 bed female dorm. It was secure and quiet, with comfortable, thoughtfully arranged beds, and lockers in the room. Great touch! There is a row of ensuite sinks, and the showers are just outside the dorm's door. Loos are a few steps away around a corner. These arrangements were convenient and afforded lots... More

We booked a 4 bedded private room for our party (2 adults 2 children) The room had bunk beds which the children loved. The room had a sink and you used the showers and toilets just outside the room which are private when you use them. We had the all you can eat breakfast for £4:99 which was great. There... More

it's a old heritage building. location is great, not far from the tube. very near to St Paul's I stayed in the girls room. quite noisy at night then, due to a big group of kids travel. I dint get to have breakfast either. there are nearby pubs for good drinks and dinner. lockers for backpackers in the rooms. limited... More

The YHA St Paul's was alright and they took great care to make sure we were prepared for our stay with a very informative email. All the details went smoothly but the stay itself was just not enjoyable. The area was convenient to the Underground stop (which was only a couple of stops from a major train station), which was...

There was no bathroom and toilet in the room. One of the guests has an issue with her knee and the way the beds are grouped , with a... More

The issue with the booking - we have rooms sized from 1 to 11 beds. You made a booking online, ordering a 6 bed room and paying in full, so this... More

Had and excellent night! My first time staying in a hostel and it was not what I was expecting! It was perfectly clean and felt relaxing as soon as we walked in.
