I stayed here for 3 nights in total for a training weekend in London. The shared areas and rooms were modern and in great condition. However, the rooms would've benefitted from plugs next to beds. The reason why I'm giving this hostel only 3 stars is the showers, which were moldy and dirty. I was quite surprised by this, as...

My first impressions of the hotel were great but as my stay went on little things started to appear. The showers are on the highest floor so one can't comfortably go shower when their room is on the 2nd floor. The showers were also in a bad state, with someone's hairy razor left inside! The sink in the toilet was...

The hostel itself was just fine. The staff were pretty hit or miss. Some were nice. Others not so much. The rooms were small but you get what you pay for. The bathrooms are what let the hostel down. Very small and cramped. But they were clean at least. I was on the very top floor with all my suitcases,...

Went to London on a College tour and 36 of us stayed there and it was fantastic. Great price, location, clean, and comfort. When we stayed it was May 2013 and we were there for 4 days, and breakfast was simple.

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.
