11 January 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Atmosphere and common areas, people were generally friendly, generally good services available

Disliked: The bathrooms. The floor actually dips away from the shower, and when the shower is not closed off by any means other than a shower curtain, flooding occurs all too easily. The bathroom also stank terribly, requiring the window to be open at all times, and any extended stay in there unpalatable. No free wifi, and range only really extends over the main common area and no further.

Liked: Young, freindly and very helpfull staff. And from various countries , which is a good thing. The recycling and environmetal "theme" is good. We try to do it ourselves at home as much as possible.

Disliked: Our room anyway, had a bad smell in the bathroom. The "Family room" for 4 persons were too small. You could not do anything in there. All 4 of us could not stand on the floorspace at the same time.

Disliked: There were a lot of hidden fees. The price quoted was with a membership, which costs an additional ten pounds. Using the internet, which is only available in the lobby, is also an additional cost. In order to use the lockers, you must provide your own lock or purchase one at the desk.

08 December 2011 Manu would recommend this property

Liked: You can regulate the heating in your room and also open the window (in comparison to YHA St. Pancras which only has air conditioning and non-opening windows ... at least in the rooms I' ve stayed in). Fantastic value for money ... on the same street is an ugly looking Holiday Inn where we went in out of interest to check the prices ... cheapest: £240 for a room! The YHA Central looks very pretty from the outside and has all the comfort you need! I love the hard mattresses on the beds. Very friendly staff who was interested in every single customer! Great service that there are 3 staff at the reception ... at the Holiday Inn we had to wait ages to ask the 1 staff a question! It even felt quiet safe to walk on Bolsover Street at night, it is well lit. It's a great location, also close to some green in Regent's Park.

Disliked: Manu left no negative feedback.

Liked: I liked the fun atmosphere and there was an option for breakfast, good location. Clean too.

Disliked: You were supposed to bring your own lock and a fee was charged because we weren't members, so less friendly to people who dont visit hostels often. There weren't a lot of showers and toilets which can be a problem in busy times.
