YHA Oxford Street Number One

YHA London Oxford Street does it again and is the top hostel in England.

Customer ratings for the hostel in Soho soared sky high after a five month, £1.4 million renovation and refurbishment which set the hostel's feet back on solid ground.

Since the refurbishment and reopening of YHA London Oxford Street in March 2011, it has been ranked the No.1 hostel in England three times and No.2 hostel two times and has broken the 50,000th booking since 1991 as well.

Becky Hudgell, manager of YHA London Oxford Street since 2009, said her first thought of the hostel “Claustrophobic and cold…it was getting tired” and it showed.

YHA decided to spend £1.4 million on a 5-month renovation which would change everything including the rating.

“Now, guests need to book, sometimes months in advance, to get room” one of the staff said.

“I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel! The staff were very friendly, you can ask them anything. The location is also very good” one guest commented.

“Amazing location, incredibly clean, lovely to stay at- especially when you first arrive in London” another said.

Becky added, “Most of our staff have been there and done that so we can put ourselves in the guests shoes.”

After a recent survey asking guests why they chose YHA London Oxford Street, their answer was the location, character and cleanliness. One guest said they were in Ireland and met a couple who referred them to YHA London Oxford Street.

With the ranking now at 4 stars by Visit England and 90% by, YHA London Oxford Street has excelled and brings in guests from all over the world for a short stay whether you are 9 or 99 and provides information to make your stay enjoyable and give you memories that last a lifetime.
