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.

Gefallen hat mir die Lage der JHB und der TV/Gesellschaftsraum bei der Rezeption, man dort in Gespräche mit anderen gekommen ist. Ein Verbesserungsvorschag wäre ein Selbstversorgerküche, oder wenigstens ein Kühlschrank und eine Mikrowelle in der man Sachen aufwärmen könnte. Im vergleich zu den anderen JHB in London ist diese leider die schlechteste.

I had to move rooms on the first night as I was in a noisy room. I had made a request to be in a student room that was quiet - it was much better when I moved. No more snoring and irritating people. The manager was kind enough to offer two free breakfasts. Would have been better if my reservation comments had been noted in the first place though as it could have been easier. Cleaning and check out should be after mid day.
