I booked the 12-beds room for 7 nights in January 2016. Although the Hostel is very good, it can get hectic in such a crowded place. At one point, two pairs of my shoes went missing to never be found again (a pair of Timberland boots and Havaianas flip flops). But the staff/management team did all they could. They helped me search for the items and even asked other guests about it. The highlight about this place is the breakfast: AMAZING! And the free drinks are also a big pro. I'd come back!
one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! the staff are incredibly helpful, friendly, and fun to get to know. located right opposite the Thames and is a quick walk from the tube and has a 24 hour bus right outside the door. I found the room and facilities very clean. the bar downstairs is always a great place to relax by yourself or meet fellow travellers. the beer pong night and open mics are always good fun but the highlight is the free breakfast and omelettes and pancakes! best hostel!

Excellent location and hostel with excellent price!! Awesome private shower room and super friendly staff, really good place for making new fds!
I had a great time in the Travel Joy Hostel! Loved the bar to hang out and have some free drinks and great breakfast with pancakes and omlette :) The rooms are quiet small, but it's ok if you just go there to sleep. You can hang out in the bar and meet some people there.
The atmosphere in this hostel is so friendly and makes it easy to get to know many new people!
Awesome hostel, wonderful staff, very good food choices, great chilled out atmosphere - perfect for the laid back traveller. Not to far of a walk to Pimlico station and only 20 minutes to westminister. Really good music nights on Friday and Saturday. Just go, you won't regret it. Unlimited soft drinks and teas & coffees included as well as free breakfast.
Nice lil place + killer breakfast + free drinks all day. what more could a boy want
Great hostel for location, facilities and good service from staff! Value for money!

I won't stay at any other hostel in London again! Yeah, the location in Pimlico was a bit far from the touristy parts of London, it was quiet! My room looked right over the river near the bridge and it was absolutely lovely. I felt safe, as a woman, to walk around that area alone, too. Not the mention the staff basically does all they can to make you cozy. The bar/food discounts are so worth staying here. Best hostel I've ever been to so far for the money I paid! I will be staying again for sure
My stay in Travel Joy was a fantastic experience. Staffs are very super nice and helpful. I have asked one of the staffs for night bus in london and suggestion of clubs, she mentioned it in detailed and with her own experience. I feel like chatting with a friend more than a staff. Drinks are free to take as many as you want. There is staff there in reception even i come back in midnight. Location is good, night bus will stop exactly in front of the hostel. Strongly recommend it!
Free wifi and breakfast were great!
Great Hostel situated in a great location! (close to Victoria bus station and also not far from the majority of the sights). A great breakfast is included and the staff was great!
It was a great experience, staff very kind and helpful, good location, excellent cleanness, very good breakfast. So in general everything was above my expectations, and I definitely will return someday.
Very helpful and nice staff. Lovely Anna.
Good location beside the Thames. The best variety and size of breakfast I've had whilst traveling the past 3 months. Good value and service.
My experience in Travel Joy hostel was extremely good, the staff is super nice, they are always active and smiling. The breakfast is amazing, and also the food that they have is really good and not expensive. The place is also a bar so you can hang out after a long day with other travelers. The rooms are not big but you have what you need: clean and comfortable bed, two showers and lockers. The stairs are tight but that is nothing compare of all that this hostel offers, recommendable!
Excellent hostel. Good rooms, great breakfast thrown in, with comfortable and friendly surroundings. Superb.
Travel Joy was a great hostel with quality staff who do try to look after your every need. A little out of the way, however, a fantastic location on the water. Great social atmosphere and pub and the free breakfasts are a huge plus. I'd definitely recommend a stay here.
