I spent one night here in a 6 bed mixed room and, whilst the room wasn't that spacious and my bed wasn't very near a plug socket, the state of the room including the quality of the beds, pillows etc. was very good with huge lockers next to every bed perfect for keeping luggage in. The staff were really friendly... More

I stayed one night here and I booked the cheapest bed because I only wanted a safe place to crash. The rooms are a bit hot, don't know why? But the bed was fine. Toilet was nice and clean, and there was a hairdryer, which is always a nice amenity. I think the best perk is the breakfast. It included... More

We had a lovely two nights here with a really great price at the time. What we didn't expect was the generosity of the free breakfasts, free towel and padlock borrowing and great showers. We would highly recommend this hostel.

The staff and the TJH ethos are what makes this hostelry so exceptional.The travelling heart beats loud and clear in this fine old building. Perfect location, informed, friendly staff, tasty breakfast and a full international repertoire on the main meal menu. And good value for money; also choice, if on very tight budget.

Staying in Pimlico

Neighborhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighborhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
