I spent a few nights there and my stay couldn't have been any better! I found the facilities much better than many other hostels, very razonable price, perfect location, bathrooms extremely cleaned, rooms spotless and fantastic breakfasts (including bottomless delicious British tea and coffee). However, the best part was the atmosphere: there was something special on it, due to the...

The staff were fairly friendly, they have a lot of amenities (locks, lockers, towels), showers were not the best and the wifi is weak. If you want a hostel close to everything then you should stay here, otherwise don't. NOT accessible for anyone with ANY kind of disability!!

I stayed here for 3 nights in total for a training weekend in London. The shared areas and rooms were modern and in great condition. However, the rooms would've benefitted from plugs next to beds. The reason why I'm giving this hostel only 3 stars is the showers, which were moldy and dirty. I was quite surprised by this, as...

My first impressions of the hotel were great but as my stay went on little things started to appear. The showers are on the highest floor so one can't comfortably go shower when their room is on the 2nd floor. The showers were also in a bad state, with someone's hairy razor left inside! The sink in the toilet was...

The hostel itself was just fine. The staff were pretty hit or miss. Some were nice. Others not so much. The rooms were small but you get what you pay for. The bathrooms are what let the hostel down. Very small and cramped. But they were clean at least. I was on the very top floor with all my suitcases,...

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.
