I stayed there with my brother for a couple days probably one of the best hostels I've been too, we felt welcomed, very nice atmosphere, very nice view of the Thames River and there's a bus stop right out front that will take you all around the city. Met some really cool people there, very happy with my stay!

Located in Pimlico, close to bus 24 and the underground. The staff is really kind, the rooms and the baths are clean. Breakfast is good and you can also ask for pancakes, omelettes and smoothies. Thai restaurant is fantastic.

The Travel Joy Hostel is my favourite hostel so far. Great breakfast including freshly made smoothies and omelette. The staff was super friendly and caring. The area seemed to be safe and it is well connected to the city centre due to bus number 24 which is running 24/7. My room was perfectly clean and quiet enough to sleep well....

It's a nice hostel, about 10 minutes away from Pimlico tube station, and has a bus stop right at the door. From here, you can walk to Tate Britain, or get the bus to Victoria, and from there to the main attractions in London. The room I stayed had too much people for the size of it, also didn't had...

Great hostel, very clean and welcoming staff. All the thing you need is provided including free breakfast, free towels, free WiFi. Customer service has gotten a bit worse compare to my last visit. I'm not sure if it was accidental for just those 4-5 days or probably it's detoriating slightly.

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
