Room was good, clean, and comfortable, although the sink stopper kept plugging up the sink. I was in a room with 8 people, and we had 2 fans. The room was warm, even with the fans. The shared bathrooms could use more hooks or shelves to put things. Overall it was a good stay.

Hi, Thank you so much for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and I am sorry that the room was hot. We will have a look at the 8 bedded rooms and see where extra hooks are required. Have a great day. Nadia Aoujdad YHA London Central

Considering the price, my stay was generally good. Unfortunately, the shower was upset.
