Very good hostel, extremely friendly staff, offering so many free things such as all day coffee and soft drink/juice. The free breakfast in the mornings were some of the best I've had, offering omelettes and pancakes. You are even aloud to bring in your own alcohol and drink it at the bar. This hostel literally tries to make your stay...

Best hostel I've ever stayed in. As soon as you walk in they're doing everything they can for you. In the morning breakfast you can order an omelette for breakfast. Or you can eat pancakes, a smoothie, cereal, yogurt, toast, fruit, juices, coffee, and more. The beds are a little lumpy and there's some noise, but they have free earplugs...

I heard about this hostel and after several visits in London I decided to try it. It is conveniently located close to bus-24 stop along the riverbanks, and quite close to Pimlico underground station.

I was surprised to get such a great atmosphere, lovely staff and service in an affordable, clean place. Go to this place if you want a comfortable, layed back atmosphere and a big range of food for your breakfast. Other hotel's/hostels may want to take a leaf out of their book

They were also really accommodating, even when I had to ask them to get my luggage from the storage room a million times. Padlocks on lockers for deposit, and free...

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.
