Très bien située, quartier sécurisant, très bon accueil, lit confortable. On entend les cloches sonner mais comme j'ai l'habitude, habitant près d'une église, cela ne m'a pas gênée du tout.

Ok, when it comes to the money, it is not too expensive. However, there is A LOT of place for improvement. Wi-Fi is available on the ground floor only. If you are not from the UK, you have to buy a power adapter, they are not for free in the hostel. Bathrooms are hard to use. Beds are kind of arcade built (three floors!). Btw, I was in the basement-male dormitory, and also, my roommate was an obviously mentally ill persol . Why was he let to stay, we couldn`t sleep!?

It is a wonderfully warm, so important when you come in from the cold night air, and welcoming hostel. Your single room on the 2nd floor even has a TV...amazing, even though I didn't need to use it! The 24 hour reception is very helpful too as I was able to check-in after the NYE London Eye Fireworks.

All was OK. Friendly and carefull staff. The bedroom was convenient for our family. Breakfast and Dinner vere good, tasty and for a good value. Just a remark: Your YHA could be more energy efficient and greener. For example toilets use a lot of water each time. Windows are not insulated even with simple seals and the heaters were very hot while windows in corridors were always open. You could save a lot of money....

We had a leak in the ceiling in the first room we were assigned to but the staff promptly took care of it, refunded our first night's charges, and ensured we had good rooms from there on.

Excellent location. Not the most guest-friendly accommodation - towels require a 5 pound deposit as well as a 2 fee and staff were functional rather than helpful. Beds are packed in and there aren't many showers. But it's fine, and the location makes it worthwhile for a quick one or two night stay.

Ostello molto carino e funzionale. Il personale è stato gentilissimo nello spiegarci i dettagli e le regole e sono sempre disponibili per chiarimenti. La zona è fantastica, accanto alla Cattedrale e vicinissima a tre stazioni della metropolitana. Se dovessi ritornare a Londra ci tornerei di sicuro. :)

Was exactly what i wanted, somewhere to sleep after a night out rather than going home as i live a fair distance from London. Bed was comfortable, included decent pillow and nice duvet. The only issue was the bells or chims of St Pauls Cathedral going off every 15 minutes in the morning.

The only problem with the hostel was the washrooms were out of service.

I like this hostel, I've stayed a few times, the area is great, it's not a party hostel, staff are friendly, wifi works as wifi does. But the beds suck.. Like they really suck and they have had these for at least 8 years now and guys, it's time for an upgrade.

Very modern and clean. Everything is just awesome apart from the location. It is not the most central area but the tube station is not very far away. But I would definitely recommend this hostel.

We have to pay for the wifi, it's nonsense nowadays, even mcdonald's has free wifi!!! Apart from that the hostel is excellent, the staff is very helpful, beds are comfortable and bathrooms are good and clean!

Fine place to stay. Very safe, in a beautiful location and close to the Tube. They offer deals and tips on free tours and tickets to events. Just make sure to bring shower shoes, because they are fine but a little grody! The room smelled, but I'm not sure if that was the room of my fellow travelers. I would stay somewhere else next time.

only get Free WIFI if you are a YHA member, though advertised as free WIFI. Bathrooms and shower facities were a but blahh, and the bed are super hard to get into. Great location, though can hear St Pauls chiming away so be prepared for morning bells.

Tout presque parfait. Quartier agréable près du centre ville. Hôtel calme et propre. Literie confortable. On y mange bien pour pas cher. Tout OK. Nous reviendrons

L'Hôtel est très bien placé, dans un quartier agréable près du centre ville. La propreté des chambres, de la literie et des sanitaires est parfaite. Les petits déjeuners sont excellents. Dommage qu'à l'accueil personne ne parle un petit peu français pour des personnes comme moi qui parlent mal l'anglais. Tant pis ça m'a aidé à parfaire mon anglais. Nous reviendrons. Merci pour tout. Salutations. Monique
