This hostel is a little odd if you're not Indian as i think it has a lot of Indian students staying long term. It's like a little piece of India in the middle of London from the head wobbles of the staff to the Indian food served. I stayed on a dinner bed & breakfast deal, my single room was...

This primarily a hostel for students from India studying in London but they also offer accommodation to travelers. We stayed in the new jubilee building on the fourth floor - room (small but we found it adequate for the two of us) had all basic amenities. Rent included breakfast and dinner- the restaurant offers Indian cuisine mainly.Located close to tube...

I abandoned the secluded Isle of Wight life on 6/10/2016, visited Kuala Lumpur (my family live there) for two weeks and landed back in London on 21/10/2016.

It is the no.1place to live for central London. As. The name indicates, it is purely Indian. So, cooking, culture everything is Indian. If you don't like India or Indians, this is not the place for you. Before you disappear, can you name once place in CENTRAL LONDON that offered you breakfast, lunch and supper and a double bed en-suite...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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.
