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.

It would be better if the box in the room could be lock by electronic lock using room card, instead of have to buy a lock for one time use. I think this will more make good use of things.

Received a friendly warm welcome from evening staff member at reception. The reception staff member did their best to make me feel comfortable and accommodated my needs. The evening reception staff member should be commended for her service especially in the late hour.

I love you guys, but 0 mobility awareness in & outside the hostel in 20 years. No lift/follow-up on mobility/luggage needs. Nice desk guy said St. Paul's stn is accessible; it's NOT. (3 stairs): I can't sling my case w/research bks up & down steps, & need reliable info. London MPs should do 'the Houston game' (city reps sent out w/wheelchairs & crutches to get to town; Halprin, 1976). System/building age is immaterial: the oldest US metro is accessible x 20 yrs. My arms STILL sore from this!
