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.

As Part of a school visit to London, we stayed in this youth hostel for the first two nights of our visit. A reasonably priced breakfast at £4.99 was just enough to set us up for the day.

I was really surprised when seeing the room. It was spacious, located on the ground floor and the bed was better than expected. There is a large bathroom and everything is clean. For 4.99 £ you can have an excellent British breakfast. The shared lunchroom is large enough for over 60 people and you can spend the evenings in a...

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
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.
