Stayed here for 3 nights with 2 friends we booked a private room sign private bathroom. The location is great only a few mins walk to oxford st and 2 diff tube stops. Room was comfy enough and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Also has a bar/cafe downstairs with great prices. Will definitely be back!

The hostel wasn't really easy to find, it was located on a pretty small street. There was only one toliet and one shower on each floor, so you can imagine the chaos in the morning... The toilets were very dirty, even for a hostel. The bedsheets were dirty, I don't think thats acceptable. I have been at better hostels in...

It was my last time to sleep somewhere else then my own bed (after 6 months). I was thinking to go to an expensive hotel, but couldn't spend the money. After some searching to get a good connection from LHT to the hostel I found this one. Good hostel, you can use your YHA card from New Zealand =D (DISCOUNT!!!)...

With all the good advices I read on the internet, I couldn't wait to try this hostel by myself and I wasn't disappointed at all ! The staff is very nice ! I came in too early to check-in so I left my suitcase in a luggage room. The access to the stairs/elevators/luggage room is secured by a card you're...

From the moment we arrived, the service we received was excellent. The prices were fair, the food was good, the rooms were clean and the location was perfect.

All family rooms are in the basement, and tube trains run directly below. They pass every 15-90 seconds. Pity they dont tell you this over the phone when booking. I wish I was joking. Wont be returning.

Dear Hungrybadger, Thank you for your review. On the lower ground floor we have 2 X 2 bedded rooms and 1 x 4 bedded room. It is correct to say that all of the twin rooms are located on the lower ground floor but of the 70 rooms that we have (approx 40 of which are 4 bedded ensuite rooms...

My friend and I stayed at this hostel when we first moved to London. I was here for about 3 weeks. The rooms are clean and they even have outlets and reading lights on each bed, which is very convenient. The welcome area has a place to eat and order food, a hangout lounge and computers.

Staying at London Central in July 2013 was my first hostel experience, and it far exceeded my expectations. As a first time solo traveller, i was a little nervous when I arrived in London, but once I settled in the hostel, I was quickly feeling comfortable. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm, which was very clean and nice....
