If you are on a budget trip and want to stay in Central London then this is the place to be. Do not expect a fancy room or service (note wi-fi is chargeable). Breakfast is ok and never tried dinner although it was included in the cost. The only good thing about the place is, it is close to the... More

Staff seemed nice enough. Breakfast and dinner included, so that was nice too. Rooms were dimly lit. Hostel itself was quite noisy. Location was fairly good, and I chose it to save some money. I should've just sucked it up and paid more and lived in a hotel. The washrooms were filthy to a point where I could not use... More

This place fleeces you like no other, leaving you feeling cheated and helpless. The rooms have zero facilities and the small window time for breakfast and dinner is constricting. While the cost of the meals is factored in, one can barely use the facility. Besides, the breakfast is so limited, and rationed out. Doesn't leave you with a good feeling,... More

Between 7:00 PM and 8:30 PM you can arrive at the YMCA Indian Student Hostel, go up to the reception desk, pay £8:00 per head, and go into the dining room for their set menu evening meal. Do not expect the usual UK "Indian Restaurant" menu, which is mostly based upon Pakistani or Bangladeshi cuisine anyway. This is good simple... More

Stores like Sainsbury, Tesco & Superdrug are within 2 minute walk… Lots of Pubs, Restaurants in the vicinity.

YMCA is centrally located, close to London's major educational institutions and within walking distance from Wellcome Library. But, the receptionist is indifferent to travelers' requests such as printing out a hard copy of the receipt. You cannot book online.

This was my third visit to the Indian YMCA at London in the past decade. The reason why I would like to stay there during every visit to London are many. Primarily, its the location.

This place costs about 100 pounds and includes both breakfast and dinner, and in Central London close to major tube stations, which is a wonderful news. Yes, it has a college hostel feel to it and the canteen is full of Indian students. But, that does not diminish the value for money this place offers. After staying in hotels for... More

On arrival at the reception desk at London's "Indian YMCA", the clerk was uncommunicative and desultory, as if he were processing yet another unwanted guest! On arrival in the room, I found it to be tiny, squashed, and pretty squalid. In the middle of the carpet someone had tried to iron something and had obviously left the iron face down... More

YMCA, London is very centrally located with easy access to the tube, which is only a few minutes walk. Rooms are well maintained with a reasonably sized attached bath. Big attraction is that the room rate includes Indian breakfast and dinner. Breakfast has no much varieties. They generally serve only one type each day, so we had Dosa, Poori, upma... More
