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.

Breakfast was really great - omlettes and smoothies along with the usual fare (see photos). I walked from Victoria station and it was about 30 minutes (apparently I missed a short cut...) The bus stops right outside which is...

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.
