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.

We are happy to stay with my friends because we are more concerned about security, ease of transportation and most of all YHA London St Pauls is in a very good location. Staff is very friendly, and informative whilte the hostel is clean. The only thing that gives us a hassle is that, there's no lift/elevator and we have to climb up the stairs with our heavy backpack and luggages on the 3rd floor. Our room is super far and there's the internet connection is only available in the reception area.

I camped here once a year for a decade now, but more and more modest single rooms (without a sink, light bulbs don't burn). Service remains worse, but prices rise. Next time I'll look for something better elsewhere!
