I have been going to this hostel for years and can only recommended because the staff is extremely friendly, it is clean. However, the only criticism I have that they should put a stool into the shower room but the hostel organisation seems to have no money for it.

Excellent location. There is no lift to the floors with bedrooms. The bedrooms are very small. The lounge / dining area was nice. The option to pay £2 for a late checkout was very handy.

Fantastic location! right off Oxford St and an easy tube ride to any part of London. I stayed in a 4-bed dorm and the room was very very small, hard to even move around when all beds are occupied. Staff were friendly enough. No free wifi (this should be fixed!!)

This hostel has a great staff team who are friendly, helpful and make genuine connections with people. Very clean rooms andmkitchen area. Breakfast is value for money and simple. Location great for the tube, shopping and sights. Well done guys!!

Clean, good security and location. But needs to improve on the wifi, all the more so when you need to pay for it.

the relation between price and quality was really bad because for the price that we paid we were expecting something much better. For example, they didn't have free wifi for guest. Only if you were a "member" from i dont know what, you could have wifi only in the lobby. I have stayed in much better hostel than this, and well located also, for less. The staff were no that friendly also...

The Hostel was in a good location, but on arriving I realized the wifi wasn't free. The beds were ok, although the sheets just fit around the mattress.

Hostel was in a good location and was good value. Staff could have been friendlier and more helpful when asked for good bars/pubs and restaurants.

It would be difficult to beat this location. You do have to climb some stairs but we all probably don't exercise enough while on vacation. The bathrooms were as small as they could get but don't let this detour you from staying here at the YHA. I'd definitely recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to London. Amazing location!

Very nice hostel. Beds were comfortable, Facilities clean and of good standards (more than enough hot water from the showers :) ). The best part was the Lounge area which is very cozy. I would definetly recommend this Hostel - even if it wasn't for the great Location (which indeed is fantastic).

Great hostel with very good location. Close to Oxford street an short distance to Oxford Cirkus. You have to pay extra for wifi, towels etc. if you are not a member of hostel international (?).

Good to hear you had a good stay. Yes, we do charge for internet if you are not a member, all guests staying here and wishing to hire a towel are charged £2, with a £5 deposit. Hope to see you back here again soon.
