At the YHA London St. Paul's, pleasant surprises never cease. For example, the 550-year-old building in which the hostel resides used to be the training ground for St. Paul's Cathedral boys' choir. Sing it, brothers and sisters!

Quick read

Pros: Cool, historic building. Great neighborhood. Very clean. Can hear the bells of St. Paul’s.

Cons: Can hear the bells (and other noises) at night. Extra fees (towels, locks, breakfast, Internet...)

Rooms

The spotless dorm rooms at the YHA St. Paul's are standard and décor-free hostel fare, with sinks, white beds, white walls and white lockers. (If you don't have your own lock, you can purchase one at the reception.)

In addition to dorms, the YHA St. Paul’s offers similarly sterile private rooms, where wooden bedframes and colorful cotton comforters add a little personality.

In-room amenities are notably absent.

Bathrooms

All rooms share bathrooms, which are spic-and-span. Towels are not provided, but are available for a small charge.

Hostel

Each floor at the YHA St. Paul’s is named after a London street. Will you sleep on Oxford Street or Carnaby Street? Whichever it is, a night sells for less than a song.

The YHA St. Paul’s public areas are much more interesting than the guest rooms. High ceilings, elegant draperies, silk flowers and an original mantlepiece make for a dramatic entrance. And the hostel also boasts a rather atypical TV lounge: a historic library with books lining walls from the floor to the 18-foot ceiling.

Breakfast and Wi-Fi are both available for an additional charge.

Location

The YHA St. Paul’s is located opposite the famous and stunning cathedral. From here, it’s easy to access a variety of sights, including the London Bridge, Tate Modern and Globe Theatre.

About the YHA London St. Pauls neighborhood

The historic center of London, the City is the financial center of London and the UK. The neighborhood is home to St. Paul’s Cathedral, the College of Arms and the Central Criminal Court ("Old Bailey"). Though centrally located, tourists will have to venture outside the area for nightlife and decent food after the suits go home.
