Liked: Atmosphere, location, cleanliness, security. Service, staff really helpfull and warm.

Disliked: No table and chair in the room for someone stay on top of bank will hard just stand in the room, sometime they need to just sit for few min after day trip. Or even just put make up for little time while dress up. Its ok for the bottom bunk they put it on the bed but for someone on the top bunk??? Really inconvenient. So people prefer and asking for first bed. I was few here so i did not know n think.

Liked: Its near to the tube, great staff and 24 hour reception/bar.

Disliked: I stayed in a shared bedroom with private bathroom. The bathroom was floodded after one shower... Imagine after four showers... The shower curtain is not enough... The lights in the bed are very strong. You should change for one more "soft".

Liked: All in all it was a great stay, for the money you pay I would well recommend it. Nice and clean, so near to the city centre, a pretty good environment.

Disliked: I wish there were locks on the locker cabinets already, so you wouldn't have to buy them by yourself or bring them with you. However, that is my only complaint.

Liked: The location was great. Only 5 min walk to Oxford street. Enough space for the need. Good condition of the rooms and the whole facility. Everything was good. During this trip we tried YHA St Paul´s which was not good at all since it was VERY old. We also visited YHA Oxford street which was very small, ie smaller facility and felt cramped. YHA Central is defnitely the best of all YHA properties. Clean and nice facility. Stayed in a quad room which was perfect for our family of 4 persons. Good price for the stay. Cheap breakfast. First time we stayed at a hostel and it was a nice first experience. We will definitely look for hostel stays in the future.

Disliked: Nothing of dislike.
