As a preface, I give the booking system at this hostel a 1, and the booking reviewing staff a 1, but the hostel itself and the staff overall really are pretty great. I stayed here for 5 nights and for some reason my booking was split into two, so I was notified upon check in that I would need to... More

My first hostel experience ever! I stayed with Travels Joy for five nights when i was in London to attend a friends wedding and to travel around the city. I happened to arrive early than the check in time and the staff was very kind enough to offer me breakfast for free. Imagine the JOY! The rooms were squeaky clean... More

The hostel is better than I expected in terms of facilities--it's quite clean and the staff seem great. Bus stop is literally out the door and goes to all main attractions around London. I was in a 12-bed mixed dorm. There were accessible power outlets all around, and a shower and sink ensuite. The bottom bunks have curtains and beds... More

I spent eight nights at Travel Joy during my first trip to London and decided to choose this hostel based on the ratings that it received from previous guests. My chief trepidation was due to the location of the place, which seemed quite far away from the big sights. On top of this, I was travelling alone and only able... More

I heard that most of the hostels are huge and impersonal in London so I went with the recommendation of a friend and was very pleased with the Travel Joy hostel. It is right next to the river Thames and in a quiet location for such a big city. It's a little bit of a walk to get to the... More

Stayed here for a week in mid August. The room is not very spacious but comfortable and you can lock your stuff in the lockers. The shower room and toilets are clean. Staff are helpful and friendly. The breakfast (esp. the omelets) was great and you will love it. Besides, the location is really nice. There is a 24 hours... More

My daughter, granddaughter, great friend and yours truly fell in love with this family friendly hostel. Everything from the exceptional staff to the free pop and bowls of sweets for the youth was spot on. There was ample food for your breakfast, including fresh omelets ordered to your specification. The evening meal was priced fairly and on the menu was... More

Really welcoming, exellent breakfast, free soft drinks for guests, alcoholic drinks are cheap, the hostel is really close to the train station Pimlico (10 min. walk or by bus no. 24), the bus no. 24 is also in front of the hostel. My mom and me enjoyed it really much. Thank you!!!

First time in a hostel, and it was a very good experience. Friendly staff gave me a leaflet with info on places to eat/drink/buy groceries on check-in. Room was quiet and spotless with big lockers (you can borrow padlocks from reception with a £5 deposit), comfy beds, and toilet separate from the two showers, which was a big plus. The... More
