      The location is extremely central with a couple of restaurants and marts nearby! There is a lift which makes it convenient if u are staying above the ground floor. However the toilets in the rooms have a slight smell.

      Nice lounge for spending with friends. Luggage storage until midnight on the day of checkout, and you can choose to put it in the lushest room for free or into a locker at your own expense. Short walk from Regent’s park, Oxford circus and Great Portland street. You may take a walk to Euston station if you want.

      Perfect location near Oxford Circus. Not a party hostel so the nights are quiet. Typical standard hostel. Good thing is, that there is a room where you can blow dry you hair or can do your make up, without waking up everybody else in the room.

      Excellent place to stay”

      So far my friends and I are quite happy with this place. Good location, good facilities like kitchen and good staffs. But during my visit, there is problem with boiler but the staff mention during check in and apologizes for the inconvenience. But still we get a warm shower despite the problem arise. Only my personal complaint and hope is, we are coming from Manchester around 8:00 am but we need to wait up to 2:00 pm to check in to the room. Yeah i know it is standard time for check in mostly on the hotel around the world but if there is good gesture to prioritize and prepare our room for us to check in early around 1-2 hours prior normal time.

      Reviewed February 27, 2019

      Hello Norzikri, thank you for finding the time to leave us a review. Our housekeeping team does its best to accommodate early check ins but, I am afraid, that is not always possible as sometimes we get a lot of check outs on the same morning or requests for late check out too. We have a locker room available anyway where you can drop your bags and already start to enjoy the sightseeing of London -hopefully you opted for that when you arrived- otherwise the cafe at reception is open 24h if you wanted to enjoy breakfast on the couches while waiting. We appreciate that overall you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again very soon! Regards - Angela, Yha London Central

      Convenient & comfortable. Just no WiFi. ”

      YHA is located in the centre of London. Only 5 mins walk from underground station and 15 mins walk from St. Pancras/King’s Cross, can reach Oxford Street on foot too. The quadruple room is bigger than I expect, comfortable to sleep. However, there was no WiFi during my stay. Free WiFi is only provided in the common area but it was not working at all (it worked for 20mins on the last day of my stay). This caused quite an inconvenience, but other than that, all other things are perfect.

      The plus side is that it looks like a nice hostel, with lift and ample space in the room to pack your things. The kichen was huge and complete as well. BUT, when I was staying, the hostel had a central heating problem so there was NO hot water or heater for the whole two-night-stay. It was horrible since it’s winter. So I didn’t get good sleep, contracted flu and har very bad cough as well. The wifi is also only available in the public area and not the whole building.

      Cons: Wi-fi is only available at the reception/common area. Not in the rooms. The lift is painstakingly slow so advice, get a room on the ground level or first to step it up. Pro: With the exception of 2-3 people, the staff is really helpful/guest friendly. Impressively clean and well maintained for the price.

The kitchen is so spacious and you can simply cook anything you want and dine there. But if you are too lazy to cook and just want to stay inside the hostel, YHA cafe (a offers great meal as well Don't forget to take the free daily walking tour which starts around 10.30 a.m. (the guide will pick you up from the hostel).

      I stayed in YHA for one night in a six-dorm bedroom. The staffs are helpful and nice. They offered me informations about supermarkets and a map. The kitchen is very big and full facilities. The lift is very slow and small. There are only two toilets and two shower rooms on each floor. The bed is small and hard. You have what you paid.

      Really good but wouldn’t mind some changes ”

      I really like yha, this has been my second time staying at one and while it’s super nice coming back to a warm place to sleep, i feel the hot air con is too high, it’s been hard to sleep the last time. The doors of the rooms close by themselves first slowly and then at once so that causes a lot of banging doors (no one to blame it on). Same happened with the bathroom door where I almost had my finger hurt. Guess this one’s a distraction from me but still avoidable if doors weren’t closing slowly and then all at once. Despite this, it’s really comfy and friendly, clean and tidy. Would go back and definitely recommend it.

      Hi Yoko, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we are sorry to hear that you weren't pleased with the stay. We have ordered extra fans to our rooms due to the hot weather. Regarding the room change we apologize that you needed to change the room often because of our perfect location we are a busy hostel, we always try our best to keep the guest in the same room. We look forward to welcome you again. Kind regards, Leyla-Team Member YHA London Central
