    Overall, this was a great place to stay and I would choose it again and again. The staff were lovely to deal with, helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms, washrooms, showers, and hallways in between were clean and well-maintained. My only changes would be: slightly softer mattresses (although mine could have been an anomaly) and wifi access in the rooms.

    It's pretty good except for the fact the one lift in the building is super slow.

    Everything about the hostel was great apart from the atmosphere. If you want to meet people and go for some drinks then this place isn’t for you. Luckily I went with 3 friends so wasn’t bored at night.

    YHA has some very friendly staff who are accommodating! Though the facilities were nice the atmosphere just wasn’t there, even with a bar it was pretty dead on a Saturday night. If you’re looking to safe place to sleep, this is a good fit for you.

    Nice hostel, good value for money. Good breakfast for the money, 5 lbs. But the Wi-Fi is only available at the social spaces, no Wi-Fi in the rooms! Major bad point!

    My stay at YHA London Central was okay. The location is top notch and staff were friendly and helpful. However, unfortunately the following spoiled my experience: mattresses were so thin i could feel the frame, toilets were not clean by the evening, whole atmosphere was noisy. London wasn’t noisy but other residents in the hostel were! I was woken up several times in the night by people chatting/singing in the halls and by the fire doors slamming. All rooms very warm and stuffy.

    Pretty unpleasant experience. No wifi in your rooms, only common area (huge problem). Usually at checkin, receptionists would explain some things about the hostel/city/culture/tours/tips. I was just given a map which wasn't helpful. My first night, my bathroom was entirely flooded at night. Room was a mess with trash everywhere. No atmosphere (for solo travelers), I noticed a lot of children and families. Food at their bar is overpriced, go down the street for cheaper/better stuff
