    Had a lovely stay at YHA London Central. Felt safe and comfortable considering COVID. Very clean, able to open windows for ventilation in our private en suite room, had plenty of options for bake-off and reassuring to know that there’s always someone on reception. Thanks YHA!

    Me and 5 other friends stayed for 2 nights in a 6 dorm room with a private en suite for a trip to London. Location was amazing, easy to get to Tube Stations with plenty of shops around. Room was clean, shower was amazing! Great Value for money, highly recommend!

    Pros: amazing value for money and location, staff were really helpful, room was clean too. I also appreciated the free water refilling station :) Cons: the room and especially the hallways were boiling hot and the room wasn’t the most soundproofed; I’d recommend bringing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper. Overall, I definitely think this hostel is a great place to stay if you’re looking for somewhere central and affordable, but not if you don’t like hot rooms!

    Great location. Not much of a vibe, however this was just before London shutdown. Staff were incredibly friendly and allowed me to change rooms. Ensuite rooms are a plus. Be aware that there are few lockers in the rooms and if there are any they are tiny (i.e. wallet and passport size (not laptop size)). Kitchen is well equipped.

    This was my 4th stay in this hostel. I keep coming back because of the great location. And compared to other accommodation options in London, the price is good and the hostel is decent. Huge bonus is the large fully equipped kitchen that's available in the hostel.

    Everything was good except from the heat in the room, especially the bathroom. One fan between four people doesn't work.

    Had a light that kept flashing in the room when ever someone moved so it was very difficult to sleep plus could hear everything with outside and other guests running around the hall at night. The shower was also cold on the last day which was disappointing and very annoying
