Property Description

Pickwick Hall provides accommodation for tourists, students and other people who require cheap, clean and attractive short or long-term lodging. We are situated in central London, in the famous area of Bloomsbury, where writers and artists have lived for centuries (Dickens for example). Pickwick Hall is in the perfect location, about a three minute walk from the British Museum and the University of London and about 10 minutes from the entertainment and shopping districts of the West End, Covent Garden, Soho and China Town, but in a quiet street of Georgian town houses.

There is easy and direct access from Heathrow Airport by tube (straight to Holborn Station on the Piccadilly line) or by A2 Airbus to Russell Square. Choose either 'en-suite rooms' (with their own private bathroom) or the less expensive 'standard rooms' (with showers and toilets shared with a limited number of other guests).

Whichever you choose, the rooms will be furnished and otherwise equipped to the same level of comfort. Bed linen and towels provided; washer and dryer available for your clothes; continental breakfast and kitchen available to prepare your own meals. There is a sitting room with cable television and high-speed Internet.

Our staff is on hand to answer your queries, speaking, Spanish and French and a high standard is maintained to ensure your stay with us is comfortable.

Being a small hostel you can expect personal attention and good accommodation at a reasonable price. View House Rules

    Very pleasant stay. The staff were lovely and beds very comfortable. All you could hope for if you're looking for a cheap, quiet place to stay in central London. Nice neighbourhood. Next time I'll book an en-suite room, but generally very happy with my stay

    Real nice staff who helped out anytime I needed them. Great location. Room was nicely kitted out for a solo traveller, and shared bathroom and shower were clean and functional. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable and nice quiet atmosphere. Great value for money.

    Good location to Euston station, Russell’s Square and West End. Comfortable bed in clean room. Note there is no place to lock up your personal items in the room if important to you. Surprisingly quiet for its central location. I woke to bird song :) Friendly staff, spacious social room & basic though good enough breakfast with fresh brewed coffee. Nice touch! You can keep food in the provided in room fridges & cook in the clean basic communal kitchen. A good find property!

    If you are looking for party, meet people and drinks I wouldn’t recommend you this hostel. The place is more like a residential than a hostel, actually there are many students living there. I stayed in a 4 beds female room. It was clean and shower/toilets were outside but close. Breakfast included, you can have bread, cereals and milk. Near to underground. I think it’s more like a place to get lots of relax and stay warm in winter.

    The best part of Pickwick Hall is definitely its prime location. It is very close to Underground stops (less than 5 minutes walking to Holborn) and a block away from the (free!) British Museum. I stayed in an all-female, 4 person room. The walls were bleak and the beds were old (but very squishy). All the facilities worked fine. I would just say you really do get what you pay for (which isn't much). Overall, I would stay here again if I was traveling on a very tight budget.

    The host on the phone was friendly, but the staff in the house was not on time, gave us the wrong room key and was only partly present. The place was quite dirty, dirty spots on the blankets, dirty sink and shower, dirty floor, dirty sponges in the kitchen, sticky tables. The water in the shower was boiling hot. The breakfast was canceled without further notice. The best thing of the place was, that you could walk by foot to all the sights, like Westminster Palace or Madame Tussauds.

    My rating 6.6 , double room in basement. Pros: Great location, quiet room, good shower pressure, warm water, friendly staff, bed mattress ok, working fridge, good sized window. Cons: Poorly cleaned room; bathroom tiles, sink and fridge were nasty and bed sheets had enough hair on them to make a wig, was not initially sure whether they had been changed or not. Wall and ceiling full of spider webs. Room had an electrical heater which was needed due to single glazed window. Overall below expected.
