My sister and I stayed at the Travel Joy Hostel for 5 nights and were blown away. Not only are the facilities great for a hostel, the staff are some of the best people you'll ever meet. They are there to make sure you have the best time, which we sure did! Every night there is something to do, all...

Great hostel. Decent location, a short walk from the Pimlico tube station. Big open loungeroom to chill in. Free breakfast spread is great and you can order omlettes or pancakes.

Hi Hector! Thank you for writing a nice account of your stay with us at Travel Joy! As you accurately said, the area of Westminster demands all pubs and bars stop selling alcohol by 11/11:30pm. Unfortunately we fall into the Westminster area and we have to abide by the laws but the common area of the hostel stays open all...

This hostel might be a bit on the outskirts of central London but they make up for it and then some. Super friendly staff that will go the extra mile for their guests. Rooms are clean with nice balconies. Free juices all day long can't hurt their reputation either.

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. 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.
