I spent over 10 days in the hostel. The good things I would say are: it is very well situated, with underground, bus and train facilities very close. The staff is really nice, and they know everything about how to get to places and stuff, and always ready to help! On the other hand, it is true that other things... More

Perfect location. 24 hour reception with Awesome staff. Building may be old but that gives the place it's own character and charm. Beds were also unique and comfy. Hostel is well maintained and clean. And the luggage storage facility for when you check out is really helpful! Many thanks. It's our first time staying in a hostel and I gotta... More

Hi Jengweng, Thanks for the review. Good advice for prospective guests, easy access from City Thameslink station (from Gatwick) or a couple of minutes from St Pauls on Central Line. Im pleased you found the hostel safe and clean, our priority. You are right about the bells of St Pauls but we do have ear plugs at reception which is... More

This was my second visit to St Pauls Yha and I was not disappointed, the hostel staff are polite and friendly, the dorm was clean, some facilities need to be updated but for the price you pay you cant ask for more. Its great value and the location is great for exploring the city. Will be staying again.

I sincerely thought St Paul in location won many hearts of the travelling people, for it easily reached places such as Tate Modern through Millennium Bridge. However there are two massive problems for me regarding the place, which put me off from booking with them in future. Firstly power sockets in the room - I have had found only one... More

Hi Celia1224, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. To address your 2 issues, you are right there are limited sockets in some of our dorms. This is due to the age of the building however it is something we are looking to change either later in the year or early next year. The second point is... More

I spent three days at this hostel with a group of 30 students and we were all very satisfied with the accommodation and the food provided. The rooms aren't ensuite but toilets and showers are clean and are located close to the bedrooms. Room sizes vary but we found them acceptable, considering this is a hostel and not a hotel.... More

For my first ever hostel experience it was alright but the place clearly needs some refirbishments. The pros: The location is great, central with easy access to the subway and busses, right at the foot of St Paul's. It's very clean and tidy, the food's excellent and the staff are very obliging. And of course, very affordable. The cons: First... More

Where else can you stay in the centre of London (literally yards away from St Pauls) for less than£25 which is clean, safe and comfortable. No, it's not a hotel. Yes, you'll probably have to share a room with strangers (remember they have to share with you as well). The showers were hot and powerful, the bed was comfortable after... More
