There were problems with the plumbing and it made terrible sound. I stayed for over a week and it wasn't fixed. Though I have to admit each time i came down a forgot to mention it to the staff. The en-suite in 002 is old and probably needs a refresher. The tap in the sink leaks water. Room 307 the bottom bunk near the window has an indent in the middle. Otherwise- thank you for a great holiday and hope that next time I come to your place you're again at you best (Not my first time with you)!

Lindos espacios y muy cómodos. El ambiente del hostel no era de jóvenes, nos hubiese gustado que haya más jóvenes

We (family 13-43) enjoyed our stay in London. 10 minutes walk from Oxford Circus perfect.Staff was super-friendly, helpful and very well organised. Breakfast for £4.99 fair. Food quality perfect,coffee worth to drink another cup.We don't have high expectations to the rooms.With shower and toilet included in room, many sockets even with each bed, we were more than happy.The guests were cultivated, the ambience was legere. To make it short, this was our best hostel stay ever.

The bed I was using was clean, the pillow and the duvet were ok but after some hours the bed started to sink and was uncomfortable. It was the room 502, be upper bed in the right side.

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. We have a dedicated housekeeping team so i am pleased to hear that you found the room and bed to be clean. We do however apologise if you found that the bed was not as comfortable as it could have been. We hope that this will not put you off staying with us again. Kind regards Elly Reception YHA London Central
