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. :)

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

Auberge de jeunesse idéalement placée pour tout faire à pied ( prévoir quand même de bonnes chaussures). Très agréablement surpris par la qualité de la literie( nous avons très bien dormi) et par la propreté des douches et toilettes. Très déçus par contre par le petit-déjeuner dont nous gardions un bon souvenir d'un précédent séjour en 2009: où sont passés les hash browns et le black pudding ; pourquoi maintenant les tomates sortent-elles d'une boite ? et la confiture qui ne sent rien.

Wifi de pago, baños compartidos sin limpiar durante 2 días extremadamente sucios y WC atascado. Bebidas en zonas comunes caras para ser un hostal. Habitaciones pequeñas. Lo unico bueno: ubicación

Super auberge rien à dire! L'emplacement est vraiment parfait, proche de tous les monuments célèbres! Le personnel est très accueillant et la propreté de l'auberge est très impeccable! Je la recommande chaudement!

This hostel has a really great location, just a few blocks away from the tube station at St. Paul's...not much more than that. The rooms are quite old and outdated, we were 5 people in the room with only 1 plug to charge our electronics. They do have Wi-Fi but it is available only for members, so if you are not one of them you have to pay 5 pounds for the day. If you are planning to stay here frequently it may be a good idea to become one…you get 3 pounds discount per night plus free Wi-Fi.

Really enjoyed stay. Great location. Rooms good size and clean. Only problem was the hamburger we had one night....very expensive and bland.

The location is just PERFECT, one of the best areas in London. The hostel is clean, nice, the room I was in (6 girls dorm) was pretty big and comfortable. It was a bit hot and humid, having ventilators or air conditioning would really improve the comfort in the rooms. There are big lockers in the room, and there are also bigger lockers in the luggage room.

I could not have a good sleep because the bells of the clock in the Cathedral tower sounded every once in a while.
