I stayed here for two nights while I was working in London. Fantastic value for money. Slept in a single sex 6 bed room with ensuite. Could have been tricky if we had all wanted to use bathroom at the same time but fortunately we didn't. The cafe/bar is good an reasonable and it is ideally placed for central London...

I definitely enjoyed my stay at YHA. I'd never stayed at a hostel before so I was a bit apprehensive to begin with, but as soon as I arrived I was pleasantly surprised. The reception/café area was very nicely decorated, with friendly staff who were very helpful. I shared a 6 bed female only dorm. I found my room easily...

Room maintenance issues included, my stay was not good due to the poor behaviour of another guest. The room I was allocated was very untidy due to one person's luggage taking up a lot of space. Someone who arrived shortly after me, left immediately to request another room, as the last remaining bed was blocked by clutter & luggage. The...

Decent hostel in a good location. Staff friendly & always someone on reception. OK selection of drinks available at the bar, and it seemed like they had a good selection of food to buy. Dorms good size and comfortable. Only seems to be one loo & shower per floor but not sure if this is because some rooms/dorms are en...

This is the second time we have stayed here, I have 2 children 8 and 5. They love the set up, there are board games for them to play and the staff are brilliant with them, we got back after a show and the staff gave the kids both a sneaky bowl of icecream to take to bed. The breakfasts...

Hostel was good enough. No complaints. It's ok for what you pay for. Only £40 for two nights. Staff are ok. One was really disorganised one morning when I wanted to print up boarding passes. The girl with the loopy earrings. Another Australian girl from Adelaide seemed very friendly in the evening. Good enough. Better than other hostels I have...

This hostel is centrally located and easily accessible. Pros - Good Value for Money. Centrally Located. Friendly Staff. Cons - Bathroom sink is too small and water ends up dripping on floor. No Towels or Soap in the Shower.

YHA London Central is great. Everyone is very friendly and the accommodations are clean. The restrooms and showers are a bit cramped, though I feel that is to be expected at a hostel. Each bed has its own power outlet as well as a light and there are cabinets to lock your stuff in. The doors lock to outside guests...
