About YHA London St Pauls

This backpackers' Youth Hostel used to be the school for the St Paul's Cathedral choir boys and is right next to the famous landmark itself. For added authenticity, you can hear the bells of the cathedral tolling whilst you enjoy everything this historic building has to offer. From the Latin inscribed facade to the ornate window and door stonework, YHA London St Paul's oozes almost as much character on the outside as its guests do on the inside.

Located in London's well known financial district, the City of London, the hostel is just minutes from the West End of London and all the usual tourist attractions, perfect for a cheap city break. The London Underground station, Overground Station, City Thameslink Station; great for visitors arriving/departing from London Gatwick, and bus stops are all close by, making YHA London St Paul's a great base for exploring the capital city.

This Youth Hostel also makes for great budget accommodation for organised groups and school groups. The large dining room can cater to a large number of guests and the social spaces are ideal for quiet relaxation after a hectic day exploring or for meeting your fellow travellers and swapping stories of your adventures in the city.

The Youth Hostel even boasts a dedicated classroom/meeting room with conference facilities. Fashioned with original wood panelling, the room has amazing acoustics - a great space for your corporate meeting or presentation.

Take in some culture during your weekend away by discovering London's past at the nearby Museum of London or stride across the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern and the other South Bank attractions - a must for sightseers.
