Proximity to Shakespeare's Globe
Amazing location. Across from St Paul's Cathedral which is two minutes walk from the Millenium Bridge leading across the Thames to the Tate and the Globe Theatre.

City stay
Excellent value for a night in the City. Warm room at the very top, overlooking the dome of St Paul’s - I will return!

Nice staff and gray location!
Older hotel and doesn’t have a lift. Be prepared to walk up lots of stairs if they place you on a high floor. I’ve been twice and the local area is beautiful with lots of shops, pubs, groceries and restaurants. The tube is a few minute walk away and the millennial bridge is nearby as well. I love to hear the St. Paul’s Church bells ring throughout the day/night. It could get a little noisy with the outside happenings so bring ear plugs. The bathrooms were cleaned throughout the day and I loved the big lockers. The staff was very nice and helpful. This will be my spot to go when I’m solo in London!

Great stay
The YHA is located right next to St Paul's cathedral and the St Paul's tube stop so there's great access to all of London. The hostel is clean and the bed is comfortable. We had a breakfast and it was a decent buffet style with good options. The staff were friendly and courteous during my stay. With its proximity to the cathedral then expect to hear the bells, this didn't affect me but could affect others. Only negative is no real takeaways in the area but that's not the YHAs fault. :)

Good morning and Happy New Year!!! The place is at a fabulous location, easily accessible. The facilities were okay, as it didn’t have an inbuilt toilet which would be easier for people who have difficulty especially pregnant people. The cleanliness is appreciated, and smells nice. It would be much appreciated if the guests were provided with atleast a hand towel/bath towel for everyday use. Because some of us come for 1-2 days stay and bring very minimal. Otherwise overall the stay was good. We came to enjoy the fireworks and we did. The breakfast was good and satisfying.
