After nearly 100 years as a school for choirboys, this remarkable-looking building boasts the ultimate location for exploring London's most fascinating tourist attractions - it's literally seconds from the cathedral! Steeped in history, this hostel includes old school choirboy graffiti (in a wood-panelled classroom no less), atmospheric spiral staircases and an elaborate exterior that screams 'if it's not Baroque, don't fix it'. If you think you know our city hostels, think again - you'll find loads of charming period features here, from the Latin wall paintings outside to the ornately carved front door. And of course, there's nothing quite like waking up to those cathedral bells...

YHA London St Paul's has 213 beds with a wide range of different size rooms from 1-11 beds. The hostel is suitable for families, groups and individual travellers. Our fully licensed restaurant is open daily for breakfast and dinner (we have no self-catering facilities). We have great transport links to all major airports and railway stations and our central location is great to explore by foot. Many of London's famous attractions are close by and we're just a stone's throw away from St Paul's Cathedral.
