Between 7:00 PM and 8:30 PM you can arrive at the YMCA Indian Student Hostel, go up to the reception desk, pay £8:00 per head, and go into the dining room for their set menu evening meal. Do not expect the usual UK "Indian Restaurant" menu, which is mostly based upon Pakistani or Bangladeshi cuisine anyway. This is good simple...

YMCA is centrally located, close to London's major educational institutions and within walking distance from Wellcome Library. But, the receptionist is indifferent to travelers' requests such as printing out a hard copy of the receipt. You cannot book online.

This was my third visit to the Indian YMCA at London in the past decade. The reason why I would like to stay there during every visit to London are many. Primarily, its the location. Its a 5 minutes walk from the Warren Street Tube Station, making is centrally accessible from/to most of the much visited business/tourist locations in the...

This place costs about 100 pounds and includes both breakfast and dinner, and in Central London close to major tube stations, which is a wonderful news. Yes, it has a college hostel feel to it and the canteen is full of Indian students. But, that does not diminish the value for money this place offers. After staying in hotels for...

On arrival at the reception desk at London's "Indian YMCA", the clerk was uncommunicative and desultory, as if he were processing yet another unwanted guest! On arrival in the room, I found it to be tiny, squashed, and pretty squalid. In the middle of the carpet someone had tried to iron something and had obviously left the iron face down...

YMCA, London is very centrally located with easy access to the tube, which is only a few minutes walk. Rooms are well maintained with a reasonably sized attached bath. Big attraction is that the room rate includes Indian breakfast and dinner. Breakfast has no much varieties. They generally serve only one type each day, so we had Dosa, Poori, upma...

They only serve indian food for breakfast lunch and supper. I suffered because i am lactose intolerant and have a sensitive stomach. They dont offer alternative diet or cook special meals for people with special dietary requirements. This was despite them charging for meals in the room rate. The rooms are stuffy with old carpets. Students there are noisey. But...

The best thing of Indian YMCA is its location. It is few minutes walk right across the Warren Street, a metro Tube station which is the centrally located area to take anyone at any place in Greater London through connecting underground tube network. It also makes it a safe place for anyone to get off and walk down after days...

I've been vegetarian since 1967. I've read some very encouraging reviews of this student cafeteria. I first came to the student cafe in the 1970s and enjoyed it. I seem to remember the restaurant was in a different building to the concrete block you see today. I felt very nostalgic and was persistent about trying to see if the food...
