I had been there 3 times before and will continue going there because of the great location. The only downside is connecting to the internet. In this day and age, it's difficult for me to understand that they don't have a free, high-speed wifi connection fully available in every room that would automatically be included in the price for the night. But, I will continue going there because having to find and test another hostel which has all the qualities of YHA London Central may prove to be hard
My stay was fine. It was enough for me and not too expensive. On the plus side, It's not too far away by walking from anything. But the neighbourhood is not the best anyone could hope for. The room on the 3rd floor was not really large enough for 6 people. The room downstairs is nice, internet works well. I have mixed feelings about this hostel.
It's a good hostel to stay at but it's far from the center in my opinion. Otherwise the room I was in was large enough for the 4 people. There are no sockets close to the beds so if you want to charge your phone at night, you have to put it somewhere where anybody leaving before you could potentially grab it and leave with it. The staff is good, bathrooms are fine as well.
