Though they gave us a wrong type of room, they compensated us with the breakfast coupon. Some stafsf might need to train up, but most of them are helpful and nice. If you come to London, it will be your first choice with budget planning.

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.

    Above average”
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    The 4-beds dormitory room is extremely small. If you want to keep your luggage, it costs 2 GBP and you have to choose a locker carefully.
