YHA London St Pauls is located practically next to St Paul's Cathedral. Many other attractions and sites are within easy reach from the hostel. We offer discounts on attractions and museums at reception so you can start exploring all of London's wonders from the minute you leave the hostel. The River Thames is just a short walk away and we are surrounded by transport links, making sightseeing very easy. Just across the Millenium Bridge you will find the Tate Modern Art Gallery and Globe Theatre.

Experience some history at our hostel, which once was a Choir Boys School, in a safe and quiet area. We offer accommodation in rooms from 1 to 11 beds. Most of our rooms are between 4-8 beds but we also have some 1, 2 and 3 bedded rooms. We accept larger groups upon enquiry.

We serve a belly busting all you can eat breakfast for £4.95. We also serve a range of meals between 18.00 and 20:30 and you can also order picnic lunches if you are going out for the day.
