Booked by a friend. Came prepared with all the shared accommodation tools of trade. Basement room. Slept like a log. Fellow occupants all seem to be seasoned travellers. So long as you are prepared, the location won't disappoint.

Definitely recommending this place and coming back in a near future when in London. Accomodation was great and services enough for a family stay. 200 meters away from the British Museum and 400 mts away from the Underground. Neighbourhood totally safe.

I really liked this hostel. It was in a great and safe location. The wifi and noise is what keeps me from giving a 5. I used the wifi a lot, and it went out about twice for 10-30 minutes. You can also hear when people walk down the stairs. But you get towels and breakfast for free which I...

Wifi is horrible, if you need to send emails or print boarding passes, cross your fingers that the wifi is working. There are mice. We were not aware that there would be construction on the outside of the building and the scaffolding workers constantly opened our window and used our outlets to plug in their appliances without notice. The bathrooms...

Thank you for writing your comments on your stay: I really wish you had enjoyed it more. We have indeed had a terrible WiFi service from one of the largest providers in the world. The service became bad - dropping frequently and slowing to a crawl at other times - in September. The provider acknowledged that there was a fault...

I stayed at Pickwick Hall for one night and would definitely stay there again. It was easy to get to in a quiet neighborhood. I felt very safe. My room was comfortable and the toilet and shower were close by. The breakfast was very nice and just right for me.

A really fab location - we walked 15 mins to see two musicals nearby during our trip. You're a stones throw from Oxford St and the British Museum. The rooms are basic but clean, comfortable and large. Towels are provided and we used the shared bathrooms and they were fine. Breakfast is also included - cereal, toast and tea which...

This place is such a bargain. For a private room, mere steps away from the British Museum you can't find a better price. This is very much a hostel not a hotel, but if you just want somewhere clean and comfortable to put your head down and save your money for everything else in London, then it's perfect. I stay...

Three of us stayed 4 nights at Pickwick Hall during the London leg of our European trip. Check in was hassle-free, receiving our keys and being ushered into our rooms immediately, giving us plenty of time to get out and explore the city. The building is quite old, built in early 1800 as shown by the twin maps of the...

Thank you for taking time to write a review that I expect will be very helpful to visitors to London. I am puzzled about the laundry comment. I have just checked that nearby laundromats (nearest still an uncomfortable walk away hauling laundry) charge more than we do. Perhaps you were unfortunate in having to wait to use the machine -...

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
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.
