This is a great place to stay for a short trip to London. This was my first experience in a hostel and it was pretty good. The staff are really great and provide a lot of information about the area! There's also a free walking tour that starts at the building every morning. I stayed in a 4 bunk room with an attached bathroom and it was great for what it was. Honestly, it felt like I was back in a college dorm room, which is not a bad thing. They provide lockers to keep your stuff safe when you're out and about and I was able to fit my backback and carry-on sized luggage inside. They also have a separate room for storing larger luggage and a full size kitchen/lounge area. They do not provide padlocks, but they are available for purchase at the front desk if you forget to bring one like i did. It's also within walking distance to a tube station and within walking distance to the British Museum (highly highly recommend if you care anything about history) and SoHo. I would definitely consider staying here again, but probably not longer than a few days as I like my personal space. Overall, it was a good experience and if you like packing light and don't mind just the bare necessities it's a perfect place to stay.

Good 6.0
Low budget but not good value.
I realise this is a relatively low budget option but for a couple, you are far better off at a travelogue or premier inn. Poor breakfast unless you like unhealthy food.

YHA Central London recommendation
Excellent overall: comfortable - brilliant night's sleep [just one night]. En-suite dormitory - ideal. Enjoyable 'continental-style' breakfast. Well organised, well-run hostel. Super staff: very efficient and welcoming and caring. Ideally placed for so many things in central London - thoroughly recommend. One negative point: lift still out of order: 18-19/05/19, same as my last visit: 04/11/18 ..!
