This place costs about 100 pounds and includes both breakfast and dinner, and in Central London close to major tube stations, which is a wonderful news. Yes, it has a college hostel feel to it and the canteen is full of Indian students. But, that does not diminish the value for money this place offers. After staying in hotels for... More

On arrival at the reception desk at London's "Indian YMCA", the clerk was uncommunicative and desultory, as if he were processing yet another unwanted guest! On arrival in the room, I found it to be tiny, squashed, and pretty squalid. In the middle of the carpet someone had tried to iron something and had obviously left the iron face down... More

YMCA, London is very centrally located with easy access to the tube, which is only a few minutes walk. Rooms are well maintained with a reasonably sized attached bath. Big attraction is that the room rate includes Indian breakfast and dinner. Breakfast has no much varieties. They generally serve only one type each day, so we had Dosa, Poori, upma... More

They only serve indian food for breakfast lunch and supper. I suffered because i am lactose intolerant and have a sensitive stomach. They dont offer alternative diet or cook special meals for people with special dietary requirements. This was despite them charging for meals in the room rate. The rooms are stuffy with old carpets. Students there are noisey. But... More

The best thing of Indian YMCA is its location. It is few minutes walk right across the Warren Street, a metro Tube station which is the centrally located area to take anyone at any place in Greater London through connecting underground tube network. It also makes it a safe place for anyone to get off and walk down after days... More

I've been vegetarian since 1967. I've read some very encouraging reviews of this student cafeteria. I first came to the student cafe in the 1970s and enjoyed it. I seem to remember the restaurant was in a different building to the concrete block you see today. I felt very nostalgic and was persistent about trying to see if the food... More

I stayed at the Indian YMCA in London for the most UN convenient 5 nights in my life. Let's start from the only good point: The location is great, which made it extremely easy to get around London. But unfortunately it is the only Good thing. Now the bad part: 1) The standard single room I had has been really,... More

I have visited this hostel twice now whilst on training meetings for Chennai Challenge. The staff are always polite and the rooms are always comfortable. It's right next to Euston train station so you're right in the centre of London and can get to places very easily and efficiently. The food is all Indian food and is delicious. After visiting...

Very very basic hotel, a kind of hostel, value for money, only plus point availability of Indian food for dinner, otherwise not a place to stay, centrally located is the plus point. I would not recommend.
