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

I travelled solo to London for my research work in 2014. So decided to stay at YMCA Indian Student Hostel as it is located in the heart of the city. 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

The warm hospitality of YMCA India Hostel at Fitzroy Square, London is experienced to be believed . The online reservation is very convenient . The location of the hostel just five minutes from Warren street tube station added to the charm. Baker street is just a station away and all the other main tourist places are two to three stations...

Located in Central London (Zone 1) close to Warren street Tube station. As it is a student hostel located nearby other hostels it was a bit noisy. The family guest rooms are located on separate wing. The double rooms are spacious. The food was very good for someone who is looking for authentic Indian food. B'fast and dinner included in... More

By far the best you can get in this budget... good food, clean rooms and a safe environment... great for tourists as well as students... typical hostel so limited frills... if you don't start comparing it to a hotel you will have fun... Great location and decent connectivity... rooms are a bit compact but I am sure you don't plan... More

it was my first stay at a student hostel, and I must say that its much more than a student hostel. With amazing and a wholesome food that comes along as dinner and breakfast, the stay that costed me 65 pounds was worth every pence of it. And add to that the easy availability of transport, locally and to the... More

I have never stayed in student hostels before, so I booked a room for 1 night with much apprehension. I was actually cajoled into booking by one of my friends who is a regular visitor here. The place is very close to Warren Street tube station, so full marks for connectivity. I stayed in Single Room with attached toilet &... More
