Best hostel of a 3 month trip!


97%

Lovely little hostel. The staff made me feel welcome when I was a little nervous with this being the first time I've stayed in a hostel. Thought it was really good how you got free soft drinks at the bar and breakfast in the morning. The bed was a little uncomfy and the rooms could do with better ventilation but that's my only gripe. Would recommend this hostel.

Very nice Hostel not directly in the hectic and noisy city, but with great connections. The staff is very friendly and the service amazing. The included Pub offers great food for a good price and the breakfast is also very good.

I loved the environment at this hostel. The open mic nights were way more fun than I had anticipated. The Thai food was amazing (we had it for dinner), and the staff was very friendly. The only issues we had was with the showers. They aren't bad, but the pressure in our room wasn't great so we had to use the showers upstairs which were not quite as clean as I would like, but not bad for a hostel.

This place was great. The staff was very helpful. They let you bring your own alcohol and they even let you use their plates. Free breakfast and movies every night. I loved it and I'm pretty hard to please.

Cole and Enrico were fantastic. Helped answer any questions I had with a very friendly attitude. The only bad part was the bathroom was on the first floor.

Great location. Free WiFi, Breakfast (super complete), hot/soft drinks & free walking tour. But the best thing about this hostel is it's staff. Everyone were amazing, nice and friendly. Great stay, I'm thinking of going back to London and I definitely will stay here again (and I'll bring alfajores!). Melissa, Filippo, Ric, Enrico, Albert, Oceane, Tiina & Rick thank you so much for your hospitality, you're the best!!

Wish I had booked this hostel for my entire stay in London. Much better than the Menninger property I stayed in before I switched.

Don't think you can get a better price in as good a location in London. Free drinks and breakfast included. Fans and towels in rooms. Staff let us keep our bags in store room for bet part of three days and were extremely helpful and friendly. Very nice hostel.

Needed a hostel to stay over night before flying out of Gatwick. It was an easy walk from Vic Station, staff were really helpful and it was a relaxed stay. There's lots of stairs but the staff will help with any bags.

Stayed at Travel Hoy Hostel with my brother and a few other people. It was a great experience, especially the staff. They were always very helpful and happy whenever I saw them. They helped me a lot with getting around town and giving info on the different buses in the area. If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere and somewhere you could meet fellow like minded travelers, look no further than Yravel Joy Hostel.

Maybe one of the best hostels I have ever visited. +: amazing breakfast -: no lift (but for a place like that it's totally fine)

I think this is probably THE best hostel in London. Nice quiet location, about a 20 minute walk from Big Ben and 15 minutes from Victoria Station. Free wifi, free cooked breakfast, free soft drink 24/7. Really nice lounge area in the bar. Friendly staff. Clean rooms, clean linen, lockers in room, clean toilets and showers. They have very reasonable prices. I highly reccommend this hostel and will definitely be staying again!

Was a great hostel in a good location. Well served by public transport in the heart of London. The facilities were a bit scarce (one bathroom for a 12 bed dorm and you had to go upstairs or downstairs to use a toilet) but the hostel more than made up for it in other ways. Free decent breakfast, free soft drinks, coffee and tea as well as lovely staff means that I would happily recommend this hostel to anyone.

Great service from staff. Good location, and transport was easily accessible (via the 24 bus stop out the front or the 10 minute walk to the station). Breakfast was good as far as a 'free' hostel breakfast goes. However the was a great mix of ages at the hostel, so not the mist sociable for young adults.

Tina was great when we checked in. Very informative and easy to talk to after a long travel day. Most of the other staff members were helpful and friendly. We appreciated the free drinks and breakfast. We stayed in the 1st rm at the top of the stairs on the right. It was very hard to move around w 6 people staying there and the shower pressure was extremely light. However the bathroom was a good size and for the most part clean. Thank you.

I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights (long weekend). I pretty enjoyed to stay there, rooms are pretty small for 6 dorms, there is constant noise from the big window to the main street always traffic. 10 mins walk from vauxhall. The area of the hostel is very gay friendly and secured, supermarket is 5 mins walk. There is AMAZING BREAKFAST ALL DAY FREE DRINKS SUPER COOL STUFF
