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.

Staff was friendly but not well trained. I returned to my room on the first night and all of my luggage was nowhere to be seen and another girl was sleeping in my bed.

Friendly helpful staff. Made to feel very welcome. Breakfast was good and the free drinks were an added bonus. Transport link very good. Easy to reach any part of London. Can't recommend it highly enough and will definately return. Stayed in a mixed 8 bed dorm.

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.
