Providing high-quality hostel accommodations in the heart of the capital, YHA London Central has comfort and convenience.
Score from 1046 reviews Very good
The hostel is very big and spacious - the rooms actually accommodate for luggage space. there are cages in rooms to store important items and the beds were generally well presented and comfortable. The bathrooms are nice with a large shower, different to the standard communal showers at most hostels and they were cleaned every morning. Bar/communal area was large and good atmosphere
wifi doesnt work in rooms continental breakfast was a bit average not as much of a 'social' hostel as others, less of the party scene (not necessarily a bad thing)
At tnhe top end of hostal stays, clean tidy and safe, breakfast is excellent but you need to get there early if you want the full choice.
Wi fi only available in the bar and during the evening keeps dropping out!!!
Near tube, clean, friendly, good organization also for the night life.
All the rest
They have to buy more flatware for breakfast because it's not enough for all guest on peak time...
I loved the decor and the size of the bed. Breakfast was adequate. Amazed at how respectful people were in general. Appreciated that I wasnt only woman in mixed dorm, was very worried in that respect as a solo traveler. Good atmosphere all round. Would not use at Christmas or New Year though as i suspect atmoshere would be quite difference. Would recommend ths hos to friends if they travel as a small group and share together. .
The bathroom is too small to share with 5 others, should be 2 shower rooms or larger. Felt cold while sleeping near the window although it was cold. Person in bunk above snored like a walrus throughout the night. Both myself and anothr occupant had to use mp3. Got no more than 3hrs sleep! was shattered. Soap in toilet is a must!
great staff, place, atmosphere, bar etc.
no lockers in rooms, no shelves, no cabinets etc. coeducational rooms (I was not informed!!!!)
Clean and Relatively Private for the money.
Too Much noise from other travellers
Match the money
-Everything was completely clean and fresh -gorgeous decour -great facilities, the lounge and outside area were gorgeous -felt very safe
Clean and beautiful facility, with good security measures and good position.
The staff is made of nice fellows that don't know how to properly treat the customers; in-room bathrooms are not clean enough (there was pee stink inside the shower room and a mass of hairs entangled in the shower drain); the breakfast is pathetic and the in-house bar offers lame food at outrageous prices (for its quality), the wi-fi signal is very poor and there is always loud music even in the morning, which is disturbing the customers who just move in to use their notebook, to read and for other quiet activities. Oh, and sleeping has been terrible because of plenty of people snoring like tractors. But at least this is not SE&C 's fault. For sure, I will NEVER come back here again unless I will be desperate and in short of money.
Its almost like a hotel, the hostal is well kept, modern and at the top end of budget traveller market. I would recommend safestay for sure.
Just a couple of things, I was surprised that tbere was a queue to go in for breakfast in the mornings. The 2 point which is out of the management control is I had a couple share the bed above me which left me with little sleep due to their noises!!!
The area surrounding it and the tube station's realtive nearness.
The staffs are really snobbish, unkind, like talking to an intercom the whole time - they might as well be automated, actually. Robots or machines would be better. Granted, there is one or two really excellent ones, kind and humane. Please, for the sake of those kind staffs, they deserve better colleagues.
very clean and tidy. outside garden. good freindly staff. good mixture of cultures and age.
Great location(28 min by foot from London Bridge!), incredible helpful staff, good facilities.
A little bit noisy during the night because it is on a big street
stuff was extremely nice and the hole hostel is cozy. cant expect more for that price- thats for sure.
Although situated in a reputedly dodgy area, the hostel itself is perfectly safe, and you can always avoid risks by travelling to the location from Waterloo station by bus, which stops directly accross from the entrance.
Cannot think of anything. The place is great! ))
Value for money, cleanliness and security.
Cramped shower rooms / toilet facilities.
Privacy of beds with curtains Big lockers Location is convenient to city centre Good price Very quiet Wifi is decent
Shower were rather cramped. Breakfast is early in the morning Check out time is strictly 10am
A really great and fun hostel. Its an hour walk from the city center and even less time on the tube. The staff are funny, helpful and really nice. It was really clean and a great modern designed hostel. You get your moneys worth here!
Not having wifi in the rooms was a bit of an inconvenience. Also not having a kitchen where you could cook your own food would have been better.
-Breakfast was alright. -Bathroom just for our shared room. -Good location. -Bunk-beds had curtains and a small lamp so you could read without disturbing other guests.
-Beds were a bit creaky. -I guess there was no internet on the rooms, just on the bar and like that but I don't really travel with much that would need it so that didn't bother me at all.
Close to the centre
Dirty,unpleasant staff, very noisy, would not stay again here.
even though our room was on a the high street we slept good. Very clean and we'll managed and the common areas were very nice and clean and comfortable. Will stay there again for sure.
It could not have been better.
