After traveling throughout Europe for the last 6 weeks, I have to say that YHA London Central had one of the worst sleeping situations. Poor ventilation combined with the poor hygiene of travelers caused the room each morning to smell like the inside of a locker room. We woke up dripping in sweat, and the smell of the room was...

This location is amazing. Right in between 2 strain stations and minutes walk from Oxford Street. The people on reception were great. I forgot to confirm our booking 24 hours before like hostelbookers said to and we arrived 2 hours later than we said originally due to delayed flights, and there was no mention of either. Easy check-in with free...

Great location. Clean hostel with kitchen. Staff are really helpful and the daily activities they run are a great way to meet new people. On my trip I stayed here on three seperate occasions and would stay here again. The only negative I have is the lift was broken on all three occassions but staff were friendly and carried my...

Two years ago, I've been to London for two weeks of vacation. I was a bit worried because I had already had some bad experiences with hostels in Brazil. I've really surprised when I got there. Although I was sharing a room with 5 more people, it was very organized, safe and clean. In my second week, I was moved...

My family stayed for four nights. 2 children 11 & 15 years old, my husband and I stayed in a 4 bed room with ensuite in the 5th floor. Rooms and beds were clean, good kitchen facilities except frypans need replacing and there were no egg flips. Lift was broken on arrival and we had to haul our luggage after...

I travelled to London for 1 week at the beginning of June with my 2 brothers, husband and 2 young kids (1 yr old and 5 yr old). It was our first time staying here and I am really glad we did. We stayed in a 6 bed room with en suite bathroom/shower. The room was a decent space, the...

We arrived at YHA having never stayed in a hostel before (we have since stayed in others), so didnt really know what to expect. My overall feelings were that I was slightly disappointed. I understand that it's London and you don't get much for your money, which is fine. Some staff members were friendly whilst others were visibly rude to...

My husband and I stayed here with our two children (8&12). We had a fairly quiet top floor private room with a bath. The room was very clean. We used the communal kitchen several times and while it was not as clean was fairly orderly and very convenient. The Hostel is located in a great location, bus routs and Tube...

I stayed here for a week in a female dorm, and the hostel met all of my requirements. It is clean enough, and although the beds aren't super comfy, they're a lot better than other hostels. I met some lovely fellow travellers and everyone seemed to be considerate of others when coming and going early/late at night. The lockers were...
