My friend and I arrived at Travel Joy Hostel at 11.30pm. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful. They helped us make a booking as we had some difficulties to do it; no phones, no wifi and no credit cards. I recommend Travel Joy Hostel to anyone who wants to visit London as this hostel, in my opinion, is the... More

I have been to many hostels in and around Europe, the staff here can obviously smile more and serve better. The highlight of staying here (apart from the view of the Thames) is its massive, free and delicious breakfast. I had my fresh customized omelet every morning of my stay. Connection wise the bus stop is right next to the... More

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.
