The best of this place is its location - very centric, near to different kinds of transport. The people at the reception are very nice and attentive. I travelled with two friends (for 5 days) and we booked an individual room for three, which was far smaller than we expected, without hardly any furniture. Just good to sleep in, but...

Room. We were lucky and had the only double room with an en-suite on the ground floor. We will be on the second floor in the summer and there is no lift, but it's not like climbing Everest! Room was clean and the beds were very very comfortable. If there was any complaint at all, the room was far too...

The room was small but ok for what we needed.Another chair in the room,would have been better,as sitting on the bunk beds was difficult. Decor a little used, but clean. Shower ,lots of hot water .Only one double hook for hanging towel, pj's , another on the wall to hang clothes would prevent wet clothes! No problem with accessibility for...

I booked this hostel because of its location near The Globe Theatre. It is a great location, easy to find. It was also an excellent price for accommodation in the City area of London. The hostel was clean, the staff were friendly and the left luggage lockers were great. However, it is the most basic YHA hostel I've stayed in...

This place is an average for a hostel (I think), with shared showers and bathrooms. The reception is offering a quite good selection of drinks. The rooms is not that bad, with an own sink. I would recommend this place for schools.

The hostel was well organised and very convenient, only a few yards from St Paul's Cathedral. The bedroom was comfortable. I found the breakfast excellent value and of good quality too.

Reviewed 12 April 2017

A nice, comfortable and cheap place to stay but the main problem is noise. The bells of St Paul's ring every quarter of an hour. So if you're a light sleeper - or any kind of sleeper! - it might be best to avoid if you are staying for more than one night.

YHA St Paul is very handy for students and backpackers and if you are just looking for comfortable place to stay. They have a restaurant and their breakfast is great value for the price. Location is superb can't beat it. This place is central for transportation. Check it out yourself but don't expect luxury.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
