Welcome to our hostel

Once the school for St Paul’s Cathedral choir boys, YHA St Pauls is just minutes from the West End by tube or bus yet provides a quiet retreat after a hectic day exploring. Looking out onto a truly iconic London scene, the hostel retains many original features including an oak panelled chapel and the headmaster's study.

Facilities include Wi-Fi, Internet access, TV room, games room, common room, laundry and lockers. Evening meals are available in the licensed restaurant.

YHA London St Pauls is the perfect place for a cheap city break or weekend away. Discover the city’s past at the nearby Museum of London or venture across the Millennium Bridge to Tate Modern and other South Bank attractions.

The shower is very powerful and warm. The only drawback is that it doesn't have a kitchen/self-catered facilities for us to cook our own meals. Although this is understandable given the size of the hostel, would be great to have this be considered as your future expansion plan. Nonetheless, breakfast and meals are reasonably priced by the on-site catering. Also would be great to have ladder for climbing to the top beds.

Gut war Sicherheit u unsere Unabhängigkeit. Die ausgezeichnete Lage hat es zum besten London-Aufenthalt meinerseits je gemacht. Am Abreisetag kam der 17er Bus nicht, was uns etwasProbleme bereitete. Aber das hat nichts mit Euch zu tun. Alles war toll und ich habe Euch weiterempfohlen!
