It is about 10mins from Victoria Station which is convenient to see London's main attractions and getting to and from the airports. Big fully equipped kitchen for those on a budget. Metal beds/lockers can be noisy. Great TV...

The location is awesome, 15 min walk from Victoria Station, 5 min walk from Pimlico. The rooms are clean and cozy, the toilets are clean, we had wifi signal everywhere, the staff is helpful and the environment is great. Is a bit expensive of compared to others, but I think it was worth it.

Second time in London and again I choose this hostel! Offers everything a backpacker needs: basic and clean beds, lockers, clean bathrooms, hot showers, nice breakfast (bread, milk, tea, coffee, cereals, jelly, butter and peanut butter). Great location (10 minute walk to Victoria Station or Plimico). All for a honest price. And let's face it: you're in London, don't need...

Why I would not recommend this place is because it is not safe. One night we were asleep in our tiny 4 man dorm when 4 men swiped their key card and got into our room. I woke up while they were searching the room (looking to steal?) and left when I yelled at them. I reported it to the...

Bedrooms are basic but clean. I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm. There are two lockers under each bunkbed. The kitchen is huge and has lots of seating. Breakfast included cereal, fresh baked rolls, milk, tea, etc. The communal spaces are well kept. I recommend wearing flip flops in the shower, the bathrooms were sometimes a bit dirty. Really...

Good beds, nice cleaning for bathrooms and friendly staff. Location is also not bad, close to two Tube stations (Pimlico and Victoria) and well served by bus. They provide a nice breakfast and the kitchen is well equipped.

Pros- easy access to all major sights. Good meeting areas. Great kitchen facilities. Lots of toilets/showers available. Cons- Stayed here while the weather was reasonably warm for London. Rooms were too hot to sleep in. Fire alarm went off every night we were there in the middle of the night. Rooms were extremely small, our 4 bed dorm was a...

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.
