Excellent service by the staff, in fact they are one of those hostels which i have stayed that looked after your every needs. They have all sorts of information available for people to read or plan their schedule in London while you can sit at their bar and order cheap pints or get the free drinks. My only 2 complaints are that some of the lockers in my room are unlockable as it was without the strap to lock it and the bath water pressure is a little small and the temperature is unpredictable.

Travel Joy was a joy to stay at. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got free soft drinks and juice anytime we wanted! GREAT FREE BREAKFAST!!! The rooms were clean and we felt safe there. The only thing I wish were that they had lockers in the room to keep valuables. The mattresses were a bit hard and pillows were slightly flat, but we were able to request fresh towels. The showers were hit or miss (though we were warned that boiler was on its last leg). We really did enjoy the stay.

Owners of other hostels need to visit Travel Joy and see what they should be doing. Great concept and execution on the hostel experience. The only improvements could be a single less bunk bed in the 10 bed rooms to allow for more room, and perhaps some new, more comfortable mattresses, but those are pretty small items compared to all the things this hostel does correct. Best hostel experience in the dozen i have stayed at in the last 3 months. Highly recommended.

The location is fantastic, with the bus 24 you can arrive in almost the principal tourist places, it is also night bus, so it is amazing if you want go out at the night. The breakfast was very very good, the people, free WiFi, towels/linen included, the bar with soft drinks for free, live music... It was a very nice experience...

Only spent one night.. Great hostel and good location. A little but expensive, but I have a feeling it's like that everywhere in London? Good breakfast, no kitchen though.

Great hostel! Conveniently located only a small walk to Big Ben, the river Thames is across the street. The Boris bikes have a stand right out the front of the hostel and there is a 24hr bus stop right out the front that goes right through the middle of the city and up to Camden as well. Staff are excellent! They are all helpful and the atmosphere downstairs in the pub is great.

The staff were really friendly and helpful. Really great atmosphere in the king William iv downstairs. Very good experience overall and I would go back to this hostel again. It was a bit annoying that there was no paper towel in the bathroom or a dryer for your hands.

Staff is great, super-friendly. Great free breakfast, Eggs! Pancakes! Common area/pub/restaurant downstairs. Food was good. No kitchen, but still had a microwave. Walking distance to Big Ben, Westminster, Buckingham, etc. Nice showers, comfy mattresses, big big lockers. Wifi is a pound a day, which at the end of day is still cheap considering this is a cheaper place to stay. Beer is very reasonably priced. Pub stops serving at 11 pm though, due to city zone. Met variety of cool people here.

The staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful. They were definitely the best part of this hostel. I stayed in a room with 10 beds, so it was a bit crowded with several people making noise late into the night, but suppose that's to be expected. The bar area downstairs is great-- nice that they serve free softdrinks to guests all day long. Only half-hour free wifi, then costs 1 GBP after that.
