Good for Budget travellers”
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.
Hi Jocelyn, Thanks for staying with us, I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday! I will pass the message at our housekeeping team about the toilette. Thanks
Nice and affordable place at the center of London”
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.
Hi Chenhsu, Thanks for staying with us and writing this nice review. I'm happy you liked our location and I Hope you enjoyed your stay in London! Kind regards Amanda- YHA Team Member
one night for a transit”
I needed to transit in London for 10 hours before going back to Tokyo, I stayed this hostel. The location is perfect and the staff working at the reception is so friendly and kind! Share a room with 4 unknown persons were a little bit inconvenient but no problem to sleep for a few hours there.

Hi Arthit, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review of your stay with us. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed both our facilities and location. We do hope that you will back to stay with us again in the future. Kind regards Raisa
The hostel is of excellent value for a family of four in a room with 2 bunk beds and a private bathroom. They keep the bathroom clean. We used the kitchen quite a bit and saved a bunch on meals. Location is central and close to most of the London attractions.
Hi Bing, Thanks for this amazing review, I'm Happy to hear that you enjoyed our hostel. We always try to do our best and I Hope you will choose us again next time you come in London. Kind Regards. Amanda YHA Team member
Good value for money ”
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.
Dear Simone, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed the location of our hostel and made the most of our "beauty salon" in the laundry room! We hope to see you here again. Kind regards, Marie - Team member
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.
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
About this hosyel”
I changed hostel this time to stay here. I heard YHA hostel is clean. Yes, that right! Hostel was very clean everywhere. Also very best is 24 hours lounge is open and can eat . Also lounge area is air condition area and TV on service. This is only YHA hostel system . Other hostel has not any aircondition system. Also YHA central has kitchen , so traveler will save the money ! I will stay here on my business.
Hi Yoko, Thank you so much for your kind review :-) We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay here at YHA London Central! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Kind regards, Laura -Team Member 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.
Hello, Thank you for leaving us a review. We do apologise for the inconvenience. Also thank you for your kind reviews. We are also proud with our location. We are looking forward to welcome you again. Hope you had a lovely time in London. Kind regards, Leyla-Team Member YHA London Central
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.
Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed both our facilities and location. Unfortunately during your stay due to a major fault with our boilers, no heating or hot water were available in the building. We worked hard to fix this issue and we completely understand your disappointment. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience experienced. Thanking you fr your understanding and feedback, we do hope that you will back to stay with us again in the future. Kind regards Chiara - YHA London Central
Great place on a low budget ”
Great staff !!!!!!
Hi Richard, thank you once again for finding the time to leave us such a great review! See you again next time you're in London. Cheers, Angela - YHA London Central
I stayed YHA hostel for 6 days in the first week of may. check in process was quick and was I'm happy with my room. it's clean, with lockers provided ( but need to bring own padlock or rent from YHA) . washroom is clean and hot shower is provided which is great! it is cleaned daily as well. Everyone was nice and accomodating. There are plenty utensils and kitchen appliances provided in the common kitchen area .entry into the lift and room need card access which is a plus point. basically I feel safe and comfortable with this hostel! tube station is not very near, but within walking distance. take it as exercise then! read good reviews here but hope this is more comprehensive to fellow travellers that wish to stay here. will definitely consider staying in YHA again for my next visit to London!
Dear Debbie, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review of your stay with us at YHA London Central. We are more than happy to hear that you were satisfied with the location of our hostel and the facilities we provided. We do hope that you will stay with us again in the future! Kind regards, Minyoung -YHA London Central
Good, budgeted option for backpackers. Strategically located with the Oxford Street close by.”
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.
Hi there, Thank you for your time to review our hostel. We are pleased to read that you had a nice stay with us and you found the location convenient. I will pass your feedback to the rest of the team as we are always looking for a ways to improve our facilities, thank you. We hope that you made the most of your stay in London and we hope to see you soon again. Warm regards, Lina Valeviciute - YHA London Central
Value for money... highly recommended for backpackers. It's nearby a pharmacy in case you fell sick and there is a Tesco Express which is only 2 minutes of walking distance. 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). The staffs are super friendly.
Hi Diana, Thank you so much for your kind and lovely comment! We are so pleased to read you had a great stay with us. We would love to welcome you back any time soon. Warm regards, Lina Valeviciute - YHA London Central
Comfortable room and friendly staff”
I've stayed 3nights. The room is big and the bed is comfortable. There is also a big kitchen and living room in basement. However, I saw a little mouse ran around in the kitchen at midnight. Also, it will be better if the bathroom can add a basket for putting shampoos.
Hello Chiu, Thank you taking the time to leave us a review. About the mouse we will take actions on it immediately. Also thank you for your kind comments. We hope you had a lovely time in London. We are looking forward to welcome you again. Kind regards, Leyla- YHA London Central Team Member
trendy but reasonable price”
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. However, it would be a good choice for one or two nights.
The location of the hotel is very good. Just 5-10 to Oxford street by walking. I also recommend to go to regent park which is very beautiful. I really like this hostel, i would come here again next time.
Dear guest, Thank you so much for your kind and lovely comment! We are so pleased to read you had a great stay with us. We would love to welcome you back any time soon. Warm regards, Barbara Franco - YHA London Central
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 Alfredo, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and other YHA's. We are sorry you found it a bit too warm we have been experiencing unseasonably warm weather this year so we apologise if it was too warm, We have purchased more fans so will be prepared for a hotter summer next year. We hope to see you again, if you return to London. Kind regards Ayesha
Awesome stay in central london”
Was really comfortable to stay here. The location is the best, staffs are really nice - quick answers for the queries, rushing to the room to fix the bulb fuse, always ready to help the ppl staying. All the public area were kept tidy and felt happy to stay around.

About this hostel”
I am using this hostel as my business sometimes. Stuffs are ok and lounge are very convenience to spend hot day. This hostel lounge has air conditioner . But all room are crazy hot and cannot sleep well. Also Front section has problem sometime because they arrenge our room , but we visit that room, all bed are full , elevater is just one in this hostel, so I has to wait for a long time. and as front section made a mistake arrenge the room, we has to change the room again! this is very annoying. Sometime has to change the room everyday if we continue to stay there. This mean is front section arrenge skill is poor ..... YHA St. Pancross hostel were perfect arrenge . Never happened this kind of thing.
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
