My favourite hostel in London by far! Such friendly staff, amazing breakfast and great facilities (movie nights, free hot and cold drinks, linen and towels). Good location. Really good atmosphere, the Internet works really well and everything is really clean, I'll be back for my third stay next time in London!

It was amazing, the staff is really friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean although a little small but it still makes it worthy, the only thing that we didn't like was that the shower in our room had only hot/almost boiling water. The food at breakfast is great and the thai food is accesible and delicious

We spent a night in a twelve mixed room, and we had a good time in this hostel. We had trouble finding the place, though, the directions are a bit confusing, we would have found it much sooner if we knew it was in a pub called King William IV. The atmosphere and the staff are really good, we enjoyed a meal at the restaurant and the breakfast was delicious. Loved the cozy sofas. Our only suggestion is adding small lights and some kind of small shelves in the bunk beds.

The hostel was very close to Victoria Coach Station (15 minute walk) which was very convenient. The nearest tube station (Pimlico) is about 10 minutes away also which connects you to Victoria Underground, which helped us get around the city. Though the hostel was very noisy and the neighborhood is a little far out, it is nothing that can't be fixed with a day tube pass. Lockers were limited and there were only a couple of restrooms.

I was suprised, but very much liked the free breakfast and free (non-alcoholic) drinks. The beds were good and the staff was very nice. However the other guests in our room weren't very talkative. Also we rented a padlock to protect our valuable luggage inside a locker, but the padlock had a 3 digit combination instead of just a key which you can put under your pillow. That gives a false sense of security to be honest.

Thank you so much for your stay and for taking the time to write a review ! We are delighted you had a good time with us and that you enjoyed our breakfast ! A good breakfast to start a good day ! We truly think digit combination is more secure than a key padlock (as you can loose the key or someone can locate it if hidden for example), but we are taking into consideration your comment. Thanks again and hope to see you soon!

The nicest thing about this hostel was the free soft drinks and free pancakes for breakfast. The bed was comfortable, the shower was good and the wifi worked well. I didn't stay at the weekend, so am unsure how noisy the place would be, but I had a great night's sleep. It was also a short walk to the Pimlico shops and cafés, or the Victoria Station area.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the bottom bunks have a curtain which was mint, also had a power point close to your bed which is awesome, free soft drink at the bar, the food was average at best (chicken burger n chips and sausage and mash), showers were clean and the wifi was good all through the hostel.. I will be staying here again in the future and I recommend it to anyone! :)

Velice příjemný hostel. Pravděpodobně jeden z nejlepších, ne-li nejlepší, ve kterém jsem zatím v Londýně byl.

We stayed at the Travel Joy Hostel Chelsea for 3 nights and it was great. We found the rooms quite small, but it was the first time for me and my girlfriend to stay at a shared dormitory, so maybe we just weren't used to it. The staff was really friendly and the bar downstairs is pretty cool. One night we just stayed there instead of exploring the London nightlife and we did not regret it. And one real highlight was the breakfast, you could order omelettes and pancakes!!

별 기대 없이 가격이랑 제 이동경로에 맞춰 찾아간 호스텔인데 직원분들 상당히 친절하시고 시설도 꽤 정리가 잘 되있었습니다. 1층은 bar로 사용중인데 하루종일 몇가지 음료가 무료라 레몬에이드 한잔 마시면서 저녁 늦게 앉아있었더니 팝콘도 튀겨주시더라구요. 조식 사간도 아침 10시 반까지라 시간 넉넉하게 잘 먹었구요. 저녁에 다른 도시로 이동이었는데 짐 보관도 해주네요. 다만 2-3층까지 짐을 들고 오르락 내리락 하는게 힘들겠다는 점이 단점이네요(제 짐은 직원분이 올려다 주셔서 참 감사했다는..) 다음에 기회있으면 꼭 다시 방문하려구요!

공항에서 찾아갈 때는 핌리코 역에서 내려서 한참을 걸어가야 했는데, 그 이후에는 호스텔 바로 앞의 24번 버스를 타기 편해서 위치는 그다지 나쁘지 않습니다. 방은 캐리어를 활짝 펴놓기 어려울 정도로 넓은 편은 아니지만 더럽다거나 한 느낌은 없었습니다. 바로 앞에 템즈강이 흘러서 아침에 산책하기도 좋고, 조식도 괜찮은 편 입니다.
