Hi, and thank you for your feedback. We're really sorry to hear the hostel didn't live up to your expectations. There was an issue with our water pipes that has now been repaired, so this may have been the cause of the noise. I'm sorry you felt our prices were too high, but I would argue that a room in...

Checked out today after a fantastic 5 days at YHA Central London with young family (6 and 8 year old boys). The hostel was perfect and the staff superb - friendly, welcoming and helpful! Reception and cafe area was buzzing without being too busy and food and drink was good and affordable. 5 star!

I enjoyed my stay a lot and the price was correct. The staff is lovely and helpful. The place is very well located and clean. The only problem is the high temperature in the room but wih the windows open it is ok. I recommend it and will go back there next time.
