I was very pleased with my stay here recently for work. First of all the price was very reasonable, considering you also get free breakfast, drinks, towels, wifi +++ When I arrived the staff were super hospitable, friendly and informative. I was shown to my room and shown the facilities. I had a pretty good nights sleep considering I slept... More

Very good hostel, extremely friendly staff, offering so many free things such as all day coffee and soft drink/juice. The free breakfast in the mornings were some of the best I've had, offering omelettes and pancakes. You are even aloud to bring in your own alcohol and drink it at the bar. This hostel literally tries to make your stay... More

The food was really nice and the choice you get for breakfast is great. Free soft drinks and the coffee/hot chocolate machines are a bonus. My... More

Best hostel I've ever stayed in. As soon as you walk in they're doing everything they can for you. In the morning breakfast you can order an omelette for breakfast. Or you can eat pancakes, a smoothie, cereal, yogurt, toast, fruit, juices, coffee, and more. The beds are a little lumpy and there's some noise, but they have free earplugs... More

I heard about this hostel and after several visits in London I decided to try it. It is conveniently located close to bus-24 stop along the riverbanks, and quite close to Pimlico underground station. In my opinion it differentiates itself from other hostel I have visited for the staff being helpful and bringing you up to your room upon arrival.... More

I was surprised to get such a great atmosphere, lovely staff and service in an affordable, clean place. Go to this place if you want a comfortable, layed back atmosphere and a big range of food for your breakfast. Other hotel's/hostels may want to take a leaf out of their book

Everyone was amazing. Staff was super helpful with directions to local London attractions, telling you how to get there and what buses to take and supplying you with a map. They were also really accommodating, even when I had to ask them to get my luggage from the storage room a million times. Padlocks on lockers for deposit, and free... More

Staying in Pimlico

Neighborhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighborhoods. 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.
