Central Hostel Reviews
Good value! Great location for Central London. The staff were friendly and accommodating at all hours (I managed to lock myself out of the room at 4am). The murals are something special and there is a nice atmosphere. There is a small kitchen for all to use which is handy on a budget although not if there are more than three people in there at once. Take a look at the House Rules poster when you go, it sums the place up nicely. Central Hostel is definitely worth the money
A suprisingly nice, cosy and clean hostel in the middle of the centre. The staff was very helpful and nice, the rooms were basic but clean. I've been to many London budget hostels and the beds were the least uncomfortable and squeaky of them all. The showers and toilets were also clean and there was always piping hot water available. On the negative side - there is no internet access and the kitchen is tiny but just a few minutes of walking and you'll find shops and restaurants and take-aways in no time. Also, Bayswater and Queensway underground stations are just a few minutes away from where it is only a few stops to Oxford Street. So if you're looking for a basic budget hostel to sleep in with a really low cost, with the best and fastest possible connections to the city and shops and restaurants around, look no further
Really helpful and considerate staff. Central hostel was warm, clean and excellent value for money. Nice area and excellent value for money.
The Central Hostel is a clean place and well worth the price - neighbours in the building over were terribly noisy, partially because there was construction going on. I'd recommend it.
