I've stayed in lots of rural hostels but never a city one before & I was reasonably impressed. Clean bedding, clean room and I rented a nice big towel too. Great location! Good amenities. Good price for London! I quite liked hearing the bells of the cathedral, and I thought the staff were all helpful and efficient. BUT. The orange... More

Went there with a group of 12 with GirlGuiding and they were great at dealing with our requests. Lovely building in a great location, central to most things. Wifi was good and the beds were very comfy. Clean and friendly environment, with great breakfast in the morning.

St Pauls is a perefectly located hostel - near river/ tube station and major tourist bus route/ cafes and restaurants/ St Pauls cathedral and Tate Modern - easy to get to and from places. The single room on top floor may be a hike to get to (several flights of stairs) but the view of St Pauls is worth it... More

I spent three nights here in early June. It's well-located between two Underground stations, one of which is also an Overground/National Rail Station, and close enough to St Paul's Cathedral to see it out the windows! There's free wifi in the common lounge and restaurant downstairs, where they also serve breakfast, snacks, meals and drinks at various prices. The staff... More

I stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. It was my first time in a youth hostel in years, and I wasn't disappointed. It was clean, the showers were hot, and the other guests mostly considerate.

The rooms are functional, expect nothing more. The building used to be a boy's home, as I was told by the locals. Nonetheless, the environment is quite pleasant. The bed in the dorm is a bit squeezy tho, and the floorboards are a little bit squeaky. However, considering the price, I would say it's pretty good. The staffs are awesome.

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
