I have stayed in many hostels worldwide and felt that the YHA St Paul's did not live up to usual standard. It sits on its laurels as a YHA venue, providing not much beyond a great location.
The reception area had whiff of vom, which needed to be addressed by a serious carpet clean. By the time you stay there the smell may have lifted, but there are still other cons to the property: you still need to tackle the tall flights of stairs with your luggage (many floors, no lift!); the mattresses are thin; and the breakfast buffet is like a school canteen (food dished up for the masses, mostly from tins).
London is pricey, and when you spend most of the day outside all you really need in your accommodation is a great location. A really great hostel, however, offers something beyond that bare minimum, and the YHA St Paul's does not.
