I've already used a YHA for a trip with my students so I didn't hesitate booking a second time. For a place to stay in Central London at a great price this place can't be beat. The rooms are clean, you don't have to go too far down the corridor to find a loo or shower. The communal areas are... More

YHA St Pauls, located right around the corner from the Cathedral down the side road between Yo! Sushi and Strada. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm room (Room 30), which has NO power sockets.

YHA St Paul’s is all about location. It is well located for all the Tubes and Buses. It is in the ‘Square Mile’ and the area is very hip.

Stayed in a family room witty hubby and 2 teens. Not very much room with bags in room. 70 odd steps up to the room, not easy with heavy bag. Friendly and warm, with communal spaces. Breakfast good value for london. St. Paul's bells can be heard every 15 minutes, nice to listen to once you can sleep through it.

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
