Fantastic location and the staff were probably the friendliest I've come across in a hostel. Rooms were clean and comfortable, I never had to wait to use a bathroom (these were also clean), and the breakfast was great (the lady who makes bacon & egg rolls is delightful and the rolls are delicious). Only quibble - wifi isn't free and it doesn't work in the rooms - however staff did give advance warning of this so that was ok. I'd definitely stay here again on my next visit to London!

Great location, awesome vibe. I could even get wi-fi from my room! It is a bit pricier than other hostels in the area, but worth it.

Staff were great, in particular the French guy, who was very friendly. Location is great, it can be a little bit too noisy, cause there's a pub across the streeet that is open till late in the morning.

The hostel could gain in organizing more social activities and promoting them. Otherwise, would recommand it for the location, cleanliness of the facilities and helpful staff.

A calm uncluttered, relaxing oasis in the heart of the city. So nice to have a relatively small hostel in such a busy place. No mess, no fuss, attentive good-humoured staff. I would choose it again.

Wi fi was poor and needs to be fixed so it can be used in rooms. Plugs above bed, linen and rooms were all fantastic. Ventilation, location everything. The only thing I will add was that I was a solo traveller and it was a bit hard to meet new people.

I had a wonderful stay at the YHA London Oxford Street. Fabulous location at the heart of Central London. Walking distance to a lot of must see sights such as the amazing shopping area of Oxford St and Regent St, Piccadilly Circus, British Museum, even Buckingham Palace and Big Ben is a manageable walk from the hostel. Close to West End and Theatreland for a night of musicals and plays. Close to lots of gay bars at Old Compton St. A professional staff and helpful to guests. Thank you.

I stayed at four different Hostels during a 12 day trip and this was by far the best one! Great location, felt very secure, very kind staff and overall excellent amenities. Will definitely stay here again if I visit London!

It was expensive, and moreover they charge up for everything "extra" like paying for storage bags and for internet... it was ridiculous!... internet was not even free as they block the websites arguing that the content was "pornografic". Come on, i am an adult, i have to pay for internet and is not free to see whatever i wanted (ps: some of the sites blocked were nightours.com and tinder app) Atmosphere is very cold, people there don´t even say "hi"... feels like a church.

Thank you for your review.

Staff was friendly and informed. Only downside was the toilets tended to get clogged quite often and the dryers were a bit too industrial. Otherwise, a good hostel.

Thank you for leaving us such a great review. We are in the process of trying to fix up all the pipes in the building. Hope to see you back again.

We booked a room for three at the hostel and though we were early to check in, the room was ready and we were allowed in straight away. Everything still looks really new, the room was definitely big enough for three people and we had three lockers, a sink and two mirrors in the room, so we could easily get ready in the morning. We didn't hear any kind of noise from other people and the staff was very nice and welcoming. Bathroom facilities were excellent. We didn't have to wait at all.

Need free wifi

The real draw here is the location. It couldn't be a better location! It is absolutely perfect!!! But it is extremely expensive even for London... And they charge everything, even wifi! If you have time in the city, you can find equally good hostels at half the price in good locations also. The only reason to stay here is if you have just a couple of days in the city and want to stay in walkable distance from most sights.

Wifi isn´t free. About cleanliness, it is weak. Bathorooms almost clean, but bedrooms, I stayed there for five days and the room wasn´t clean during this time.
