+ the price was the cheapest in London for our dates! + the beds in our twin room were super comfortable, we had the best nights there! + the location was actually very nice (in the quiet residential area that made us feel like we're residents of London) and we liked it very much (thanks to the hotel's location, we...

I have stayed at this Hostel often both in dormitories and as a couple. The room facilities are basic and tired from much use but the cost is reasonable. Overall it is a hostel that works; and works well for me, and for many others besides. The Hostel has a kitchen for self catering guests like myself, but discerning self-caterers...

My family stayed here for 4 nights in July this year. We were a large party and shared a private en-suite room with a fantastic night time view of the Shard. The hostel itself is very tired (we were told that they are due to start an update shortly) this said the bedding was clean although the cantilevered bed arrangement...

We stayed at YHA Thameside for one night while on a theatre trip. We had three young children so booked a six bed dorm for privacy. The room was large and suited our needs quite well (bed for the night) but had we been without the kids, we wouldn't have thought it so ideal. With the beds being stacked tightly...

Stayed at the YHA Thameside with my partner for a single night. As we were travelling on a budget we booked into the dorms and split up. My night was mostly fine as I was one of the last people to arrive in. My partner on the other hand was one of the first to arrive in that evening so...

I’m a member of the YHA and find them very useful for overnight stays in London. With 7 venue choices, you can decide which is most convenient for where you’d like to be in the morning. I’ve stayed at St Paul’s….only once I’m afraid, the bonging of the blessed Cathedral bells on the ¼ hour nearly drove me mad, which...

We were booked for two nights as part of our honeymoon. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Complimentary bottle of wine thanks to Mo and the Assistant Manager (much enjoyed after the walk from Canada Water). Room was very comfortable complete with a good sized en-suite. Very nice to see tea making facilities available in the room. The only downside...

My wife and I stayed here for a night on the 9th of August,2015. The hotel was a bit far away from the center, however, it can be easily reached by bus (-No381-there is a stop next to the front door) or by tube (-Canada Water-10 min. walk). The neighbourhood was quiet and far from the crowds of the center....
