Accommodation at YHA London Oxford Street

The hostel

This Youth Hostel has 104 beds over 36 rooms including double, twin bunk, three bed, four bed private rooms and dorms all with shared facilities. Our bright and colourful lounge and dining area has comfortable seating and tables and chairs. The hostel also benefits from a self-catering kitchen and a laundry room with washing, drying and ironing facilities.

This is a busy city centre hostel, so families might prefer YHA London St Pancras or YHA London St Paul's for a quieter London break. However, we are not a 'party hostel' and all ages are very welcome!

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire.
