YHA London Oxford Street is all about location. As the name suggests, this hostel is just off Oxford Street in central Soho, a lively area of cafés, bars and shopping. This colourful hostel is frequently praised by Hostelworld guests for their clean and spacious rooms which include an individual light and power-point at each bunk. We like that this hostel is centred between three of London's most popular tube stations - Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road and Piccadilly Circus.

Overview

You'll find YHA London Oxford Street just behind Europe’s biggest shopping street. Discover Soho's vibrant bars and clubs nearby, plus iconic sights like Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace. Our tour desk can help you skip queues with discounted and fast-track tickets to sights like the London Eye, Tower of London and Madame Tussaud's. We also host organised events most nights, so check the activity sheet for free walking tours, pub crawls and movie nights. Fancy a beer closer to home? We've got our own bar.

Location

We're between three major underground stations – Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road and Piccadilly Circus – giving you easy access to all corners of the city. Heathrow Airport and St Pancras Train Station are direct underground rides away, and the Gatwick Express train is two stops away at Victoria Station. Wander up to Shaftesbury Avenue to catch a live show, or grab a meal in nearby Chinatown before heading to Leicester Square for some celeb spotting – it's a 10-minute walk away.

Crash out in one of our brightly decked rooms, be it a dorm, double, twin bunk or private. Whatever you pick, shared bathrooms are close by. Bed linen's free, and you can rent towels, adaptors, padlocks and hairdryers from reception. Charge your phone at your personal plug socket while you sleep, or grab a thriller from our book exchange and read under your own lamp. If you always oversleep on leaving day, don't worry! We do late checkouts.

Try a stone-baked pizza at our restaurant to line your stomach before you hit the pubs! Staying in? Stick around for a chilled night in our common room with a board game. Or, catch up on the news with free Wi-Fi. In the morning, grab breakfast for under £5 or cook your own Full English in the kitchen.

    Greate hostel to stay. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortables. The only thing is the room I had was facing the main street, so it was a bit noisy early morning around 3am, but that is normal for a city like London. Rooms are very nice and comfy. Showers and toiltes were clean and in good condition. Common room and kitchen ok. Breakfast was a buffer so it was a good deal for the value. I'll stay here again.

    Overall a really good stay. Never stayed in a hostel before but the facilities were good/ clean, bed was comfy, and the location brilliant. Hostel was very quiet, which suited me perfectly.

    The location was fantastic - very central but not too noisy. My room (female 4-bed dorm) was spacious with personal lockers, a desk and a sink. The place was kept very clean and offers a breakfast for an additional fee. You also have use of the kitchen so can cook for yourself. Negatives - no real hostel atmosphere there - neither among the staff nor travellers. More could be done by the staff to create a friendlier atmosphere. The mattress and pillow were really uncomfortable.

    The location is so good. Great to be so close to so many amenities. The staff were lovely as in all of the YHA hostels and in Oxford street/ Noel street they were exceptionally so. Thank you

    The location is amazing and I really liked how there were sinks in the rooms! The staff had a lot of recommendations (most of the time) and they let me check in early. Really great stay!

    Impressed with most everything except the staff. On the day we were supposed to check out, a young woman with long brown hair knocked on our door and then opened it. She didn’t even wait for a response. It was 10:10 and we were already supposed to be out, that is true, but what if I’d been naked? She barged right in. That was unfortunate.

    Fantastic location right in the heart of the West End. Very close to Soho and to Oxford Circus tube station. Not surprisingly the hostel itself feels a little cramped (especially the toilets). Showers were clean and there is a communal area on the floor where the reception is. Staff are friendly and breakfast is available for an extra fee. Lockers available too for a fee. Not the most atmospheric of hostels but hard to complain when the location is this good.

    Very Good

    11 Mar 2020
    There was a lot of noise from the street which was an annoyance, so maybe sound proofing could be improved. This included an endless procession of dust carts and trucks in the early hours of the morning. The room and some of the common areas were in need of repaint as the decoration was below the standard you normally get in a YHA. There are a lot of stairs and the small lift only goes up to reception. Apart from that the location was good, close to the tube at Oxford Circus.
