YMCA Indian Student Hostel
Ranked #138 of 896 Speciality Lodging in London
Reviewed 19 June 2017

Stayed numerous times over last 13+years, consistently good value. This is primarily a dorm for Indian students in London, so expect rooms, food service, bathrooms, to match dorm standards, NOT a hotel. That said, it is a cheerful, friendly place and Indians will feel particularly at home, especially the food. Plenty of office goers come there for the good Indian fare at lunchtime at modest prices. Front desk and food service staff are friendly and helpful. Location is great, SOHO is a 15-minute walk or 3-5 minutes by tube.

If budget is the main issue, this is the best option specially for Indians.
The location is unparalleled - within 300 mtrs from Waren Street underground station.
Breakfast and diner is included in room tariff. Menu is totally Indian. Good variations in menu.
Rooms - although the property is primarily meant for hostel for students, family rooms are available for short stay. Rooms are small. No space for extra cot/ mattress. Family room with common bathroom as well as family room with attached bath are available. Family room in ladies wing shares ladies bathroom. Common gents bathroom are available in other wing in the same floor.
Bathrooms in this property really need enhanced attention. Under-performance of cisterns of commodes and drainage problem in showers are some of the important issues need immediate attention.
Reception is helpful.

Room Tip: Double bedded rooms are available with attached bath as well as with common bath

This review is purely for the restaurant element - went there with 6 mates for January's curry club session. Cannot believe the quality of the meat and cooking for the price. It was about £8 - for as much as you can eat!!! No alcohol (naturally) and only 19:00-20:30 for food but for value, you will not beat it in London. Excellent.

Best advantage of this place is its an centre location of the city with superb connectivity of tube & bus. Indian breakfast and dinner are included a a part of the package. Just outside the hostel there is a small park which is very good sit at night or morning time.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

We were 2 people travelling to London. We decided to take YMCA this time as one of our friends was staying close to that place. The place was great. The rooms cleanliness could have been much better.

The food was good and you won't miss India atleast for this.

You will witness vibrant young crowd who are either studying in nearby colleges or as interns just buzzing around in this place, either staying in the hotel or just coming for Lunch or Dinner...

This hostel is a little odd if you're not Indian as i think it has a lot of Indian students staying long term. It's like a little piece of India in the middle of London from the head wobbles of the staff to the Indian food served.
I stayed on a dinner bed & breakfast deal, my single room was ensuite and very clean. The food was all Indian, you could have toast & rice crispies for breakfast but the dinner there was only one option (or veggie version) so if you don't like curry or want more choice don't get the dinner option.
The location is handy being a few minutes walk from Warren Street tube & plenty of buses.
