Stayed several times over past 10+ years, consistent experience. Rooms are small and basic, typical dorm quality, with small, old 13-inch TV. Location is perfect, and food is great, particularly if you are Indian and/or vegetarian (non-veg is also available). Mostly occupied by long-term students, so the dining halls have a friendly, cheerful atmosphere.

YMCA is like a boon in an expensive city like London. Located conveniently to enable one to visit all the important sights, yet away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it is an ideal accommodation. The cherry on the cake is the inclusion of breakfast and dinner in the tariff. We found the location very convenient. Warren street... More

Really amazed by the location of the hostel and the facilities in it. I stayed in the dormitory and it was spacious with cup board for each one. Common bathrooms are maintained ok but still need improvement. Food is very good especially south indian curries. Bed spreads are changed once in a week only in contrast to their mentioning that...

Coming to a foreign country, it always feels great to have something which you can call as your own! And Indian YMCA is really truly Indian. You will feel like home. I visited as a solo traveller to appear for FRCR exam. They provided 4-bed dormitory with good luggage space and common shower and washroom. Being very near to the... More

You can easily walk to British Library, British Museum, Tafalgar Square, London Eye and some of the other places in London. The rooms offered are with shared and private bathrooms.... More
