From the moment we arrived with a giant group, the folks at travel joy made sure we were taken care of. They helped us with directions and play tickets and everything in between. Thanks for all the great hospitality.

We checked in for a week during the London Olympics, with 80 of us. We're not easy going folks either, we were rowdy, drunk, and loud. The crew here took care of us every step of the way. The location is superb, right next to a bike sharing rack outside, bus stop is right outside as well, and it's right on the Thames.

The bar/restaurant food is actually above what i experienced in the rest of the city, it moonlights as a Thai restaurant as well, which is a plus...since most pub food i had in London was absolutely terrible. Drunken Noodles = yum.

Stayed here for 10 days during the Olympics. When I say I stayed here, I and 80 of my closest friends stayed too! For some of us this was our fifth Olympics so its fair to say we are well travelled and have experienced many places to lay our weary heads. The Travel Joy Hostel COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER. They so looked after us, we were a big group with a lot of needs and wants and even more questions! The team at Travel Joy could not have looked after us any better, always available, always smiling and always helpful.
Food great, drinks prices great, cleanliness and standard of rooms the best I've come across and the location is superb. Perfect for seeing the major sites of London, great views of the Thames, a 24 hour bus stopping outside the door and "Boris bikes" to hire on the doorstep.
I honestly wouldn't consider any other hostel in London after staying here. Good job, well done Travel Joy Team. Thanks again for the stay

This is top quality hostel, the best one in London in my experience (and also ranks high in comparision to other hostels in general). Clean, atmospheric setting, good location, friendly staff, lovely breakfast, you have everything you can wish for :)

Extremely good value for your money. The room was clean, the employees were helpful, even the roommates awesome. The food--there IS a kitchen--is also very good. Drinks are cheap, too. Highly recommended!

It's a very good price for a hostel which is very clean (I always look for this in a hostel) and you can have all the drinks without alcohol that you want, and also you have breakfast, and a towel. The staff was very kind. The only thing was the bed wasn't very good but it's not a big deal, it's a good price for all that you receive.
And also the location was perfect, because you have in front of the hostel the bus number 24!
Thank you so much,
I'll be back on your hostel whenever I'll be in London.

Everything was great. Loved the free breakfast and candy at the front desk. My only complaint is they really need new mattresses. However if you're young you should be fine. Warning though, there is no kitchen so plan to eat out. Great place!
