I abandoned the secluded Isle of Wight life on 6/10/2016, visited Kuala Lumpur (my family live there) for two weeks and landed back in London on 21/10/2016. I stayed at The YMCA Indian Student Hostel from 22/10/2016 (my second day back in UK soil) to departure datetime at 6.30am on 27/10/2016. I had an unforgettable experience as a passerby traveller...

It is the no.1place to live for central London. As. The name indicates, it is purely Indian. So, cooking, culture everything is Indian. If you don't like India or Indians, this is not the place for you.

If you are on a budget trip and want to stay in Central London then this is the place to be. Do not expect a fancy room or service (note wi-fi is chargeable).

Staff seemed nice enough. Breakfast and dinner included, so that was nice too. Rooms were dimly lit. Hostel itself was quite noisy. Location was fairly good, and I chose it to save some money. I should've just sucked it up and paid more and lived in a hotel. The washrooms were filthy to a point where I could not use... More

This place fleeces you like no other, leaving you feeling cheated and helpless. The rooms have zero facilities and the small window time for breakfast and dinner is constricting. While the cost of the meals is factored in, one can barely use the facility. Besides, the breakfast is so limited, and rationed out. Doesn't leave you with a good feeling,... More

Between 7:00 PM and 8:30 PM you can arrive at the YMCA Indian Student Hostel, go up to the reception desk, pay £8:00 per head, and go into the dining room for their set menu evening meal. Do not expect the usual UK "Indian Restaurant" menu, which is mostly based upon Pakistani or Bangladeshi cuisine anyway. This is good simple... More

YMCA is centrally located, close to London's major educational institutions and within walking distance from Wellcome Library. But, the receptionist is indifferent to travelers' requests such as printing out a hard copy of the receipt. You cannot book online.

This place costs about 100 pounds and includes both breakfast and dinner, and in Central London close to major tube stations, which is a wonderful news. Yes, it has a college hostel feel to it and the canteen is full of Indian students. But, that does not diminish the value for money this place offers. After staying in hotels for... More
