  • Some staff are nice, some do the bare minimum, but I guess that's average. I had to change rooms when I was there which was ok, however they would not let me even put my laptop in a locker in the new room. The reason was, 'we don't generally like people doing that, we like the rooms clear for the cleaners.' Meanwhile it was 35 mins past check out time and people in my room hadn't checked out. Just strange. So I had to carry heavy laptop with me til 2pm when room was ready.

  • We were a bit disappointed that the wifi was down our whole stay. Otherwise we had a great time.

  • Best hostel I have been to! Love it. Close to the underground station. Only crappy thing is the prices go way up on the weekend! Book well in advance!

  • Very nice hostel - quiet but warm in the summer. Staff were very helpful - Gaia especially was kind and extremely helpful at solving our problem upon check in. Recommend an extra towel for the bathroom as shower heads are calcified and spray everywhere. Facilities were clean.

  • Great stay at YHA London Central. When you come back after a long-walking day, you got a bar, a kitchen (cleaned every day, but at least people using it are washing up their own ). The private and shared bathrooms and toilets are also clean. There is a luggage room, where you can let their stuff in, or put into a locker (3£).

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
