I've stayed in Travel Joy Hostels twice now before writing this review - once on my own (female, one night) in February and one for three nights with 5 of my friends, all female. I've never stayed in any other hostel ever and I'm so glad I decided to initially pay a little more for this hostel than a dodgier... More

The best hostel I've ever stated in. The location, overlooking Battersy Power Station is superb. The lady who checked me in was lovely, showing me bus roots, tubes and a offering me a free drink. It's big, clean, a lovely FREE breakfast (pancakes, cereal, toast etc), unlimited free drinks all day (tea, coffee, coke, juice etc). Showers are clean and... More

I'm not a big fan of Hostels (I am very private and prefer my own room) except for the social aspect and Travel Joy does score well on this front with it's friendly staff, guests and the pub/restaurant (The King William) downstairs. I stayed for 2 nights while passing through London on my way to NYC and it was fun... More

On arrival staff kindly showed me to my room and offered me a free drink. All softdrinks are free to guests! Great shower facilities with free shampoo and soap! Bed ok, very creaky! Suprisingly good food in the pub, pork ribs were yum! Free salsa lessons and other entertainment on different nights. Only downside really is the location - just... More

I only stayed at the Travel Joy for one night, but I had a great stay. I also had a really bad cold at the time, so that's saying something. The staff are very helpful, and it has very clean facilities. The 10 person dorm was a bit squished, but that was to be expected. Everyone in my room was... More

This was the first hostel I'd every stayed in and the staff certainly made the experience pleasurable. The breakfast is great, and the convenience of free beverages (non-alcoholic) throughout the day is stellar. The neighbourhood is very safe, especially for a female solo traveller. Tube line isn't far and the Tate Britain is about 15 minutes away. It's an ideal... More

I stayed in a dorm at Travel Joy Hostel in February 2014. The room was alright although the bunk beds are really wobbly. Bathrooms were alright and clean. I really enjoyed breakfast with oats, cornflakes, toast and tasty coffee. You can also get omlettes, pancakes and smoothies for free which is awesome. The staff is very nice and quite helpful!...

The hostel is definitely recommendable! Location - excellent. Bus 24 takes you to a lot of landmarks. Nice Thames view. Staff - helpful, caring. Atmosphere - enjoyable. Live music, salsa lessons - what else do you need to enjoy your stay? Breakfasts? Do not worry - you will not be hungry with omlettes, pancakes and cocktails galore. Rooms - not... More
