Overall a very nice YHA. The rooms were clean and tidy and the communal showers and toilets are good. The rooms were modern, nothing was dated or old. The staff were very kind. We used this YHA as our base of operations and the staff remembered us when we came back. That was very nice after a month of travel... More

I stayed at the Oxford location with my brother, Like every other hostel I've experienced, the room stank of diseased feet and sweat-soaked butt-crack. However, though the bedding was comfortable, as of the following day I've been dealing with three huge red welts, clearly not pimples, but massive bug-bite injuries. I consider myself a pretty tough guy but for a... More

Hello Zacharia L, I see how easy it is for to write the things and why you would feel incensed to do so after what seems like a very bad experience at the first instance however accusations of bed bugs are something we do take on very seriously as an outbreak can be very damaging to our business. So let... More

This is one of the London YHAs that has smaller rooms of 4 beds. He beds are standard YHA, so the level of sleeping comfort doesn't change (and neither does the risk of sharing a room with snorers, smelly feet or inconsiderate folk that bang and clatter around in the middle of the night) This YHA is central and a...

Thank you very much for your review of our site! Unfortunately due to our brilliant central location a bit of street noise is unavoidable from outside the hostel.

I stayed here for 4 nights and it was great. There was a fair bit of street noise, so I recommend ear plugs, but the hostel itself was quiet.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
