    Superb

    23 May 2018
    My only complaint was that the room and bathroom were so small I felt a bit claustrophobic when carrying my backpack. Any issues I had were to do with roommates, not the hostel (using up all the lockers so I didn’t have one which influenced my time spent walking around London with my valuables) and the room becoming a sauna because someone closed the bedroom window during the night. Other than that, the hostel itself was a great value for the location and quality.

    I had two conferences to attend in central London: I needed simple, inexpensive, overnight accommodation – and the YHA in Bolsover Street provided exactly what I wanted. The staff were cheerful and helpful to a stranger, everything worked, everything was super clean, I had a good night's sleep, and was pleased to find that a simple breakfast was available. I was well set-up for my second day.

    Very safe and fun hostel! The staff were very nice and answered my question promptly. Would definitely stay again when I'm back in London! The dryers weren't working when I was there so that was a bit of an inconvenience.

    Fabulous

    Fairly clean (clean bathroom & shower) though quite dusty under the bed where I stored my suitcase -- when I pulled it out it the bottom was covered in dust bunnies! Great staff, location, and modern facilities (including a charging port for each bed).
