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 ..!

Cheap but still pleasant
I booked this hostel for one night as I was attending a show near Leicester Square. It was easy to find (although a little bit of a walk from tube stations) and check in was easy. When I entered my room I discovered my bed was the only one that didn't have a charging port, which when you are travelling is pretty essential. I went back and queried this - the hostel, despite being full, were quick to move me to another room, which was actually better than my first. Apart from the fan being slightly broken so it was very noisy (why is aircon not a standard thing yet) I had no issues. I might choose a more central YHA next time, but I enjoyed my stay.
