I chose this hostel as it was in a very central location, close to the railway station that had express trains straight into the centre on London. The area was lovely and the room and common areas were clean and tidy. However the bathroom was disgusting. Upon opening the bathroom door you are hit with a foul stench of mould... More

Thank you for your review of YHA London Lee Valley - i agree with you, the location to the train station and the park itself is fantastic. The train links into London are just mind blowing when you look at outside the lodges and all you can see is park land. I believe I know the room you are talking... More

Spent 1 night at the YHA Lee Valley, first time at a YHA and my experience was a good one. Pros: - Lovely little communal area in the lodge with limited cooking facilities but plenty of plates and cutlery which was really handy as we brought a simple meal from Tesco and had it at the lodge. - Amazing room...

On a three day cycling tour of Essex, our group of eight stayed here on the Friday night. The welcome from reception was brilliant, giving us the keys to the bike "store" around the back and a run-down on the facilities and local restaurants. The lodges are large and fairly modern. We had a good sized room with (obligatory squeaky)... More

I stayed here for 2 nights & my bike lock key snapped. The staff could not have been more helpfull in helping me to find a solution. They lent me superglue, boltcutters and wouldn't stop giving me the right advice till I was safely on my way. A wonderfully serene place and a five star service. Thankyou so so much... More

Ideal location - walking distance from the station and with easy access to central london, cheapest option I could find for a single traveller near Enfield and no problems with the facilities (excellent for a hostel!) Of greater significance was the excellent customer service of the staff, special thanks to Cal who helped me out immensely! Reception is open 24/7... More
