Second time in Pickwick Hall, and I like it even more. This place certainly got atmosphere. Me, a woman 45+, was staying in the four bed female dorm. Sure, the place is a bit run-down, but it is clean! You will meet nice people of all ages to talk to. Most guests are calm, this is no party-place. If you... More

It's the second time I go to London and the second time I stay at the Pickwick Hall. It's a lovely hostel in an EXCELLENT location, right next to several restaurants, supermarket, pubs, the British Museum, bus and tube stations, but still in a quiet and lovely street. The owner, Patrick, is an amazing person. Very polite and helpful. The... More

I have been staying in Pickwick Hall for 2 weeks around 2007. This was the first time for me to be a backpacker with friends. I was so impressed by the clean and comfortable room. We arrived at there super late at night (around 11 pm) and Patrick was so warm that he waited for us and made us feel... More

Spent two nights in Pickwick Hall in Bloomsbury in february 2014. The hostel is situated in a quiet street of small hotels with a park at each end. There are 3 different tube stations within a short walking distance and the National Museum is right next door. We had a room downstairs and while it was pretty small it was... More

Pickwick Hall was a lovely place to stay! Patrick was an extremely helpful host and was able to give us advice on where to go and how to get there. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and continental breakfast is included in the already cheap price. A huge bonus is the location as it is near main attractions and... More

I stayed here for 1 night with my boyfriend a few months ago but never thought to leave a review. We were really happy with this place. Amazing location, around the corner from British Museum! Great value and friendly staff! Clean too.

Husband and I stayed here during a rather brutal heat wave in London which made our stay quite hot! I think we probably could have asked for a fan but we just suffered through it silently like the rest of London. A good, cost-efficient place to stay, especially considering the location. We toughed it out and avoided paying a fortune... More

I had only booked one night at this hostel, but I left wishing I could stay a little longer. The people who run Pickwick Hall were very helpful, efficient and friendly. The room was plain and certainly well worn, but it was clean, comfortable and (except for one or two noisy fellow guests) peaceful. The building is charming and exceptionally... More

The location is great and the neighborhood is safe. The owner is a nice gentleman and the atmosphere there is more or less like at home. Please note that this might not be a place for party-goer as the hostel itself is quite family-traveller-oriented. The shower room is old and in general the hostel is rather old. Just a surprise...
