Great location, helpful staff. Like the strict 10 p.m. quiet time around the sleeping area, not a lot of hostels actually enforce that. Good breakfast. Fast internet.

Only two people to a room! Plenty of space, clean, front desk was very (almost overly) informative. Located near Victoria station which gets you everywhere, with plenty of fun food for any meal, two nearby grocery stores, and a charming neighborhood. Loved this place!

This was a very clean and spacious hostel compared to other places. The luggage storage was monitored by cameras and locked up. We were allowed to drop off our bags before we checked in which was helpful. The rooms were very spacious and had a large window which allowed for a very nice breeze. The bathroom was also roomy and mostly clean.

Its proximity to St Pancras International is excellent and would highly recommend that people stay here before travelling on the Eurostar.

YHA St Pancras is very convenient for both mainline and international Eurostar terminals, both of which are just across the street. The hostel is also a short bus or tube ride from the West End. Although the hostel is located on a very busy main road, there was no traffic noise from the street.
