Liked: fantastic location~ next to beautiful St Paul's Cathedral, where Princess Diana got married and cross the Millenium Bridge(which is 10 mins walk) you'll see Tate Modern. Also near to tube, shopping centre and so on. Nice neighborhood. very basic facilities. 8 people bedroom - will be lucky if you can sleep well.

Liked: NIce place. Old styled and next to st paul (you see the cathedral front from the reception windows). Room (room 1) was probably the worst one of the hostel (under the stairs) but all in all clean enough..

Liked: Great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel was clean and it has good showers and toilets. I was pleasantly surprised to find the bed already made up. That's pretty unusual for a hostel. I would definitely stay there again.

07 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent location, five mins walk from St Paul's Underground station. Bit tired, could do with a lick of paint. Restaurant was very good, open for breakfast and dinner at around £5 a meal. Bathrooms and bedrooms spotlessly clean. Reception staff maybe don't know their stuff too well. Overheard a tourist ask about Bonfire Night (major British annual celebration) and receptionist didn't have a clue what it was.

Liked: Location is very good, beds are comfortable although a bit strange. Most staff members were friendly, but the chap at the reception when I arrived was definitely unfriendly. It's clean. Unfortunately, it does not have any self-catering facilities and it's not easy to meet people.

Liked: The Location in London center is good! and really practical with a bus station 100meter away from the YHA. The description of the website is NOT correct, as the Underground Blackfriars is close until 2011... you cschould change this!

Timothy O'Brien

02 June 2009 Timothy would recommend this property

Liked: Like: Cheap, very central location, easy walking distance to Northern & Central lines. Helpful staff, if a bit gruff at night, but lots of friendly people. Big hostel.Dislike: Make sure not to stay in room 1 if you're a guy. It's below street level and the entrance, and you hear everything coming and going. If you get stuck in there, invest in ear plugs or expect to get woken up at 5 am when delivery trucks start rumbling by.
