We had a wonderful time staying in your hostel. The beds are excellent and I could sleep as deeply as home. Breakfast are awsome, team people are so helpful and kind. Great for transport to citycenter.

I stayed at Travel Joy for one night as I needed to catch an early bus the next morning from Victoria station. There were nice small offerings more than usually expected from a hostel that price: free non alcoholic drinks, free breakfast with omelettes and smoothies (unfortunately didn't get to try due to early check out), towels provided. The beds... More

My friend and I visited London from August 3 - 10, 2014, and stayed at Traveljoy for the whole week. We initially booked it because it seemed clean and came with WiFi and breakfast, but we had no idea what kind of experience we would actually have. Now that the week is over (we checked out this morning), there are... More

Place was nice 10 minute walk from Pimlico station, the place had charm and character. Staff were so helpful and really made the experience, as I had never before stayed in a hostel and was quite overwhelmed at first. I would recommend making use of their free wifi, breakfast and drinks! For the price I payed per night I was... More

I stayed there in July for 5 days. The staff was friendly, and fast. I liked having free drinks and the breakfast was good. But, I was very disapointed to see the negligence in cleaning. It was very dirty in the room and in the bar. The floor was black. The walls were full of dirt. And the odor was... More

We had stayed there 3 years before. There is one thing that they should change straight away: in their directions, they should NOT make you walk 1 km with your suitcases. We already knew that, so we took bus 24 that happens to stop RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE HOSTEL. Service was very good (with the exception of the eastern... More

I spent 3 nights at the Travel Joy Hostel, and I enjoyed a lot. Very nice staff, clean rooms, very good breakfast and very warm and nice place. I visited 5 hostels in London, and this one is the best of all!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Travel Joy Hostel, especially considering the price of the room. The free soft drinks are just great for the London summer, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is OK. The pub downstairs offers nice deals on meals and the food is really good. The hostel is not within walking distance of... More

Actually a nice visit. We enjoyed the free drinks and the friendly atmosphere.But the bathrooms need more definitely more cleaning and a little more variety at the breakfast would be nice. Bus and subway stations are nearby.
