I was really surprised when seeing the room. It was spacious, located on the ground floor and the bed was better than expected. There is a large bathroom and everything is clean. For 4.99 £ you can have an excellent British breakfast. The shared lunchroom is large enough for over 60 people and you can spend the evenings in a... More

I stayed in the ten bed dorm on the lower ground floor. The room was very spacious and did not feel overcrowded, and had an ensuite shower and toilet which were always clean. However there was only one socket in the room. There is a TV room with comfortable chairs and sofas, no kitchen unfortunately. I didn't try out the... More

Hi Mollie, Thank you for you review. Im pleased you thought our hostel was clean, this is really important to us so appreciate the feedback. With reference to only 1 socket in the room, this is something we will be addressing later in the year but our guests can charge all devices securely at reception 24/7. We do have some... More

I haven't stayed at many hostels, and this was much more comfortable than expected. I stayed in a room with several other women, and found the accomodations great! The staff was helpful, and it was great having access to a laundry room on the premisis.

Hi Girl091085 Great review and thorough for prospective visitors, I note you say about the toilets being used frequently in the mornings and understand your point so with immediate effect we have asked our housekeeping team to check the toilets on the hour every hour to ensure we keep on top especially as you point out, at busy times.

I stayed here for one night and it did the job. Comfortable beds, free wifi and a very clean hostel. If you just need somewhere to stay the night as I did it certainly does the job, and I was even able to check out at 5am to catch my train. It's a lovely location very close to Blackfriars Station...

I've stayed at the St Pauls hostel a few times, as it was customary for all those participating in the London Kendo Cup. The location is excellent, you'll find yourself close to pretty much everything and talk about being right smack in the City! Breakfast is definitely nice, but remember, it's not meant to be a chic meal. Don't expect... More

Hi Yeomans V, Great review, thank you, the staff, the breakfast, and great point about the WIFI, it does only currently work in the social areas but creates a great atmosphere for meeting fellow guests.

Great price, security, excellent service, decent breakfast, free wifi across most communal areas and well located as far as tube and bus go. FANTASTIC shower! Icing on the cake would've been a box of tea bags next to the hot water available in the dining area....

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
