This is a hostel. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Food is well cooked. Overall the building could do with some TLC. I liked the use of key cards that limited access to other accommodation areas. If you are just looking for a place to put your head down for a night or two...

Hi Dave, Thanks for taking the time to review us, great feedback about the team and Ill pass on. We are bit by bit updating parts of the hostel.

It can be more interesting if the rooms are larger and cleaner. There is a problem of noise too. Concerning the bathrooms, it's not bad but, once again, you can do some efforts to make it more clean .

Hi, We appreciate all feedback from our guests however in the interest of fairness we expect our guests to inform us at the time of stay if they are not happy.

Room. We were lucky and had the only double room with an en-suite on the ground floor. We will be on the second floor in the summer and there is no lift, but it's not like climbing Everest! Room was clean and the beds were very very comfortable. If there was any complaint at all, the room was far too...

Clean, safe and friendly. Nice to hear the Cathedral bells at night. Recommend for business or back packers. Bring earplugs, an eye mask, padlock and open mind if you are staying in a shared dormitory.

We brought a group of 20 Chinese students to stay at St Pauls YHA during February half term and had a very enjoyable experience. Meals were much better than anticipated and bedrooms very comfortable and clean. The staff were helpful and there was plenty of space for our students to relax. Would highly recommend.

We were a large group staying at the YHA St. Pauls, and found the staff very hospitable and accommodating. There were lockable cabinets, sinks and mirrors in the room. The best part was the breakfast - a buffet consisting of the elements of a full English breakfast, yogurts and cereal, some fruit, tea and coffee. The only drawback for us...

Excellent location, near 2 stations, St Paul's and Blackfriars stations. Strong wifi, clean room and comfortable bed. The only setback is there is no lift and our room is located on the highest floor.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
