St Paul's Hostel is situated in an old part of London in the sight of St Paul's Cathedral and the sound of the cathedral bells. It is in need of much modernisation. The hostel can be found down very narrow back streets about two minutes from the cathedral, shops, banks restaurants and bars which surround the hostel.
Public transport is easily accessible to all parts of London. It is difficult to drop off and collect luggage as there is nowhere to park and not wheelchair and disabled accessible due to the number of steps. The hostel does not possess a lift so suitcases have to be carried up and down stairs.
Upon arrival the hostel is accessed by an intercom system which opens the entrance door. Reception is up a flight of stairs and the people who man it are very helpful. In the reception area are computers, chairs to relax and a television in the adjoining room where all programmes can be viewed.
The hostel does not have a bar, food can be purchased in the restaurant as there is no kitchen. More settees can be found in this area together with a television.
Wifi and international calls can be accessed using Global Gossip cards which can be purchased for one to seven days use. This can prove very expensive especially when it may be difficult to use your own computer due to lack of power points and low lighting.
The hostel as two bedroom areas, one at the front of the hostel and one towards the rear. The dormatories sleep up to twelve people but do not have en-suite facilities. Showers and toilets are found on each floor although certain parts of the hostel have more facilities than another making it difficult use. Some of the toilets do not flush properly and certain showers tend to leak. Sinks are in each room to wash hands and brush teeth.
A luggage room is in the basement area, access is gained by a security code with priced lockers available. Free numbered lockers are also available in the dormatories which correspond to the bed you are allocated. This is a useful method as it means if you find it difficult to climb into beds then a bottom bunk can be allocated.
Check-in is 2pm, check out 10am. Outside noise from revellers at the nearby hostelries and the sound of the bells can make it difficult to sleep. Prices at the hostel may be higher than the more centrally, modern hostels so check first.
