I have stayed at this hostel on two separate occasions in May and June 2014 and have thoroughly enjoyed both times. Staff were always friendly and helpful, room and bathroom clean and liveable. Loved the lolly bowl at the reception desk. The street side can be noisy in the mornings, I was able to sleep through that comfortably but it... More

We arrived mid morning and were welcomed by a friendly young man who offered us breakfast before stowing our bags securely for free so we could enjoy our day exploring London up encumbered by heavy baggage. When we returned he offered to help us carry the bags to our room. We stayed three nights and without exception staff were friendly... More

A group of 12 Ladies stayed here to Moonwalk in May 2014. We had the room with six bunk beds which was fab. It didn't feel crowded and there was plenty of room for storing belongings inc. valuables in lockers. The toilets were upstairs again which was fine until after we'd completed the moonwalk. We had a friendly greeting and... More

I decided I'd be staying 3 nights in London the day before leaving, so I scouted around looking for a backpackers to stay at. TravelJoy came up, so I booked the 3 nights in one of their 12 bunk rooms. The backpackers occupies the upstairs area of a pub that sits opposite Battersea Power Station on the Thames. I thoroughly... More

This is a hidden gem! For a very reasonable price, you get great service, a clean room, clean bathroom and facilities, and free drinks plus a full-featured breakfast. This is as good as it gets as far as hostels go. Having stayed in many hostels across Europe, this is by far one of the best.

A connected global hub.....friendly international staff who are helpful and attentive. Have lived and worked in London over many years and this was a first for me in lots of ways...leaner sparer travelling with limited time. The flexibility of the staff and the feeding regimen, plus the location and transport links, enabled an abundant itinerary. Thanks so much for sharing... More

I'm a professor who travels with groups of university students and I find most staff at hostels are friendly and helpful, but here I truly felt like we were their guests rather than their customers. Plus it's a central, pretty, and safe location with a very convenient 24 hour bus stop out front and shops, etc nearby.

I brought a group of 12 guys up to London to watch the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final this weekend just gone and stumbled across this little gem with the help of Tripadvisor.
