Les parties communes étaient agréables. Cependant la chambres pour 6 personnes été vraiment très petite et sans fenêtre... J'ai fait plusieurs YHA (London Central, St Paul et Thameside) durant la semaine et c'est celle que j'ai le moins apprécié.

I really enjoyed staying at this YHA London Central for its friendliness of staff, cleanliness of the room, comfort of the bed as well as its general location. The only slight improvement I would say is that the shower head in my room (#405) was problematic, splashing water everywhere, which caused the bathroom floor super wet after shower. Overall, I would say I had a really positive experience with my stay and would come back again!

I have stayed here often. It is the friendliest hostel in London. The staff are genuinely eager to help; they don't merely process. Accommodations are standard but perfectly clean. No Wifi above the public area, and I wish there were. Food and drink is good value, for the money.
