This hostel is superb, very comfortable and clean, truly a home from home. Great facilities such as fully equipped kitchen and dining, cosy living room, great showers and laundry. Staff very friendly and helpful, great location and amazing value for money. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed at Pickwick for five nights on our most recent trip to London, and were pleased with our experience! This was our first time staying in any kind of hostel, and while it probably wasn't a "true" hostel experience (we had a private room and didn't see much of our fellow guests), it definitely exceeded our...

Great, clean and quiet accommodation. We had a private room downstairs which was more than adequate. The location is brilliant for accessing London on foot and via the tube. The owner even made us a cup of tea before we left. Such nice people. Many thanks!

This hostel is not really a hostel - it isn't full of backpackers or loud, drunk people. It is more for the traveller who needs a decent place to crash after a tiring day exploring within a central location. If you have never been to London before you need to realise that almost every accommodation venue (except the big fancy... More

Great value, clean and tidy, quiet, I stayed in the 3 bedroom dorm, it was a very pleasant stay, breakfast was good - they allowed me to get my breakfast at 7.30. Great central location if you need to be in and around Holborn in the morning, I walked to my training session.

I stayed here one night with a friend in a shared room (4 beds). The room was basic but clean and comfortable. Showers were just next to the room and breakfast was included in the price - cereal, toast and tea/coffee. If you are looking for budget accommodation in London, you can't really go wrong with this place.

Excellent location, quiet and clean. Friendly enough staff that try to help, but have a limited command of English which complicates matters somewhat. I chose to stay at Pickwill Hall instead of hotel to be near my friends, so ended up paying for three beds to get an ensuite room - no value for money for me! The ensuite rooms... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
