This review is purely for the restaurant element - went there with 6 mates for January's curry club session. Cannot believe the quality of the meat and cooking for the price. It was about £8 - for as much as you can eat!!! No alcohol (naturally) and only 19:00-20:30 for food but for value, you will not beat it in...

Best advantage of this place is its an centre location of the city with superb connectivity of tube & bus. Indian breakfast and dinner are included a a part of the package. Just outside the hostel there is a small park which is very good sit at night or morning time.

We were 2 people travelling to London. We decided to take YMCA this time as one of our friends was staying close to that place. The place was great. The rooms cleanliness could have been much better. The food was good and you won't miss India atleast for this. You will witness vibrant young crowd who are either studying in...

This hostel is a little odd if you're not Indian as i think it has a lot of Indian students staying long term. It's like a little piece of India in the middle of London from the head wobbles of the staff to the Indian food served. I stayed on a dinner bed & breakfast deal, my single room was...

This primarily a hostel for students from India studying in London but they also offer accommodation to travelers. We stayed in the new jubilee building on the fourth floor - room (small but we found it adequate for the two of us) had all basic amenities. Rent included breakfast and dinner- the restaurant offers Indian cuisine mainly.Located close to tube...

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. Before you disappear, can you name once place in CENTRAL LONDON that offered you breakfast, lunch and supper and a double bed en-suite...

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). Breakfast is ok and never tried dinner although it was included in the cost. The only good thing about the place is, it is close to the...

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...
