YHA London St Pancras London Hostel Review and Information

The best part of this hostel is the fact that it is literally right across the street from St. Pancras, which is great if you have an early train in the morning. Snacks are relatively cheap and even though you have to pay to keep your luggage in lockers, I felt secure leaving my luggage there before checking into my room in the afternoon. - Anonymous
